It's another Monday on BOL, which means breaking news interjections, stumbling analysis, and hilarious Brian Tong jokes that go RIGHT over Molly's head. Turns out you can not actually search for girlfriends on Facebook using the search term, "hot girls." Unless, of course, they self-identify. Plus, a pain ray update!

Today’s featured Buzz Out Loud remix(es) at the end of the show:
Remember how you said the has not been an Apple recall in your memory, let me give you a reminder.
”On September 20, 2008, Apple announced the Apple Ultracompact USB Power Adapter Exchange program.”
Enjoy your Sunday,
After El Jobso’s press conference on Friday I realized that there is a known statistic that exists, that we’ll never see, that would be fantastic to know. If AT&T knows that the iPhone 4 drops calls at a rate of 1% higher than the 3GS, they must also know at what rate the iPhone (pick your version) drops calls compared to other phones.
There is a story on TechCrunch
(http://techcrunch.com/2010/07/18/steve-jobs-att-2/) about how AT&T refuses to defend itself if it means speaking ill of Apple, do you think this could be another of those cases. Perhaps AT&T knows that the iPhone drops calls at a rate of 2 to 3 times that of other phones, but is afraid of offending the Apple machine?

He’s wearing headphones so there is no noise. Actually think it’s pretty cool.
Love the show!
