1138 Good luck with that, Bono Monday, January 4, 2010 [1] [2]
So, Bono has been listening to his manager and soaking up the idea that the Internet needs to be locked down before it ruins the video industry. This selfless act of Cassandra-like prophesying involves talking about how great the U.S. is at stopping child porn and how great the Chinese are at stopping anything they don't like. We point out a few holes in the theory there. Also, Google is doing everything. Seriously, if you even think fleetingly that Google might do something, well, apparently it already is.

We discuss the winners of this year's Best of CES awards, and make our very own picks as well. But the most important news of the day has to be the whole Facebook bra color meme. What... Is it something I said?

1143 Google is sorry... you feel that way? Tuesday, January 12, 2010 [11] [12]
Google apologized to China for miscommunication over their scanning of books. But that didn't stop them from scanning the books. Or even get them to apologize for scanning the books. Also Microsoft Word is no longer sold, at least for a brief period of time. And the Apple rumors are ramping up.

1144 What's Google really doing in China? Wednesday, January 13, 2010 [13] [14]
Due to some Gmail attacks, Google has said it will remove its filters and possibly pull out of China altogether.

We also discuss Facebook's requirement that you scan your hard drive to reactivate a hacked account, and we look forward to Martians coming this year. Yay for Martians!

1145 China to Google: Suck it Thursday, January 14, 2010 [15] [16]
The Google-China drama continues as China makes a veiled response that only law-abiding companies are welcome in the People's Republic. More information came out indicating the Gmail hacking was done by the government in China. This isn't over folks. We'll keep on it. But there is other news. Apple lawyers strike back over tablet rumors, and app stores are all pretty much the same.

1147 Mint Fried Quicken (sarcmark!) Tuesday, January 19, 2010 [19] [20]
While Apple has officially announced an announcement, we don't know what it is. So we speculate anyway. Sue us. Will you pay $2 for a new character that indicates sarcasm? Most of us won't, either. We also discuss the meaning of privacy in search engines and Quicken hides it's online service behind Mint, which oddly makes Natali hungry.

1148 Verizon cuts off alleged illegal downloaders Wednesday, January 20, 2010 [21] [22]
Breaking news during the show has Verizon admitting to cutting off the Internet access of people accused of illegal downloading. But hey, they don't throttle,they say. Great! Except for cutting off people is really an extreme from of throttling. And also, Verizon isn't getting proof for this, just accusations. The problems with this policy are immeasurable and we discuss them. Oh and Bing may oust Google on the iPhone.

He gave us some more insight into Secretary Clinton's speech about the freedom on the Internet, specifically relating to China. We also clarify that Verizon is not booting people off the Internet--but apparently Cox is. So take all that stuff we wrote yesterday about Verizon and just put Cox in there.

We discuss. Also, it's over for the Mars rover Spirit. At least the roving part is over, but it's still alive and doing science.
