Ep # Title Original Airdate Link MP3
1175 But I don't WANNA Twitter! Monday, March 1, 2010 [1] [2]
New music stars are finally being told to social network buy the record labels and now they're throwing a fit. Benito thinks they're just being all rock and roll and disrespecting authority. We also discover buttocks meatloaf. Don't ask. And we talk about Apple's child labor problems and Sony's PS3 glitches. Tomorrow Molly is back and Jason too!

1176 F1 is now FU Tuesday, March 2, 2010 [3] [4]
Microsoft's latest security measure involves telling everyone not press F1. Well that's reasonable. If you read everything Microsoft says. Also the juiciest weirdest firing ever happens to the developers of the most successful video game ever.

1177 Nerd Freestyle Wednesday, March 3, 2010 [5] [6]
We stayed on the rails pretty well in this episode, but there's a whole long thing about cake toward the end that the chat room dubbed "nerd freestyle" and, well, we love that. In other news, new TiVo underwhelms a bit (other than the remote) and Viacom goes all anti-Internet with Daily Show and Colbert. That's the cake part.

1178 Steve Jobs Smash Thursday, March 4, 2010 [7] [8]
On today's show, Apple wants to wipe all HTC phones from the face of the earth, apparently because Steve Jobs is just grouchy about this whole business. Donald and Molly engage in a nice long talk about the validity of software patents, and then we wonder whether anyone would actually line up to buy a new 3D HDTV. Meanwhile, the well-meaning House of Lords is probably going to destroy the Internet.

1179 The guy who makes Ok Go go Friday, March 5, 2010 [9] [10]
On today's show, a special interview with Adam Sadowsky, president of Syynlabs, the company that created the awesome Rube Goldberg machine in the super-ultra-extra viral Ok Go video, "This Too Shall Pass." Turns out making that video was as hard to make as you might imagine. Also, we discuss the pending smellpocalypse coming out of Siberia.

1180 Egg on NewEgg's face Monday, March 8, 2010 [11] [12]
Weren't the folks who ordered an Intel Core i7 surprised when they got a Styrofoam fake instead? well yes. But we still haven't heard from Newegg how this happened. However the fake was incredibly well done. So props to that. We also discuss Apple's first iPad ad and Ubisoft's incredible DRM failure.

1181 ACTA: it's bad for the brand Tuesday, March 9, 2010 [13] [14]
The European Parliament is, somewhat unexpectedly, riding to the world's rescue by demanding that the super evil ACTA agreement be negotiated in the open and that the three-strike ISP provisions be taken out. Well, hot damn! That's big news! I mean, that Cisco router is big news, too, but it just doesn't have the same sexy factor.

1182 Where we're going, we don't need rails Wednesday, March 10, 2010 [15] [16]
We've utterly given up the concept of "on-topic" today, as talk of Apple's Developer License Agreement suddenly turns into a conversation about patent law and nuclear arsenals and our one voicemail is a dirty anagram. What happened!? Also, some bad words.

1183 War and peace on the Internet Thursday, March 11, 2010 [17] [18]
Patent wars reignite, the Internet is nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, and multitasking may be coming to the iPhone. It's an epic sort of show today. Also, PS3 gets in the game with a motion-controller, and employees like us knowingly violate IT policies like crazy people.

1184 Warning: BOL may result in loss of toe Sunday, March 14, 2010 [19] [20]
Today's BOL happened before a live studio audience at SXSW in Austin, TX. Cali Lewis and Nicole Lee joined us on stage to discuss the state of SXSW Interactive, the on-going Google/China kerfuffle, and pharmaceutical companies' struggles to fit the risks of drugs into a Twitter-friendly 140 characters. Also, Cali Lewis nearly loses a toe.... um, sorry?

1185 I can haz peace? Monday, March 15, 2010 [21] [22]
Veronica Belmont and Ben Huh join us on stage to talk about the brewing war between Apple and Google, pay walls on the web... and we also wage tiny cute little wars on each other as well.

1186 Free chickens for all Wednesday, March 17, 2010 [23] [24]
If 3D is the chicken and the Avatar DVD is the egg, somehow we should all get free chickens or 3D is DOA. Or something like that. We've all still got a bit of a BBQ hangover from our time in Austin, but at least Rafe's here to make a little sense. Oh, wait, he came up with the 3D chicken thing. Anyway, Facebook rules the Web, IE 9 may or may not embrace actual standards, and Droid users are getting 2.1, finally. We're home.

1187 Driving right management Thursday, March 18, 2010 [25] [26]
Apparently some auto dealers sell cars to folks with bad credit if those folks agree to allow a box to be installed in their car that gives the dealer remote access. In other words: if they fall behind in the payments the car can be shut off remotely. This led to madcap mayhem in Austin recently when a guy hacked into the system and shut off 100 cars. We also talk about Apple's fear of protection and why Amazon makes Apple look more open.

1188 A bunker and chains...for your iPad Friday, March 19, 2010 [27] [28]
Turns out, according to some developers, that the only way to get your hands on a prereleased iPad is to build it a special sealed bunker of its very own, with darkened windows and a chain so it can't get up and walk away on you. People, we are NOT making this up. Also, we dish the dish on Viacom vs. YouTube; get a good, long look at Windows Phone 7; and yeah, Molly's mad about the Android 2.1 delay. No surprise.

1189 Slide to explode Monday, March 22, 2010 [29] [30]
Google and China's war heats up a bit. Amazon is apparently not going to war against the iPad. But the most compelling news of the day? Swipe to unlock existed long before Apple ever thought of it. It involved Aliens. And Predators. And self-destruction.

1190 Steve Jobs vs. Predator Tuesday, March 23, 2010 [31] [32]
Announcing our very first not-even-remotely sanctioned by the legal department video creation contest: make us an awesome video in which Steve Jobs and the Predator work out who has prior art on swipe-to-unlock. We will reward the awesomest video with a Buzz Out Loud ceramic travel mug. Oh, and Google turns off its filters in China ... briefly.

1191 Evo! Evo! Evo! Wednesday, March 24, 2010 [33] [34]
On today's show, there's tech news, but there's also the new Sprint Evo 4G, and that's kind of all we can think about. Its big 4-inch screen, its two cameras, its kickstand. Sigh. It's my new boo. Also, though, some stuff about Google, the full text of ACTA is leaked, we have a winner in the Apple vs. Predator video contest, and holy crap, did you see that Evo?

1192 The ethical standards of GoDaddy Thursday, March 25, 2010 [35] [36]
We accidentally besmirch the reputation of Danica Patrick, come up with some reasons why Bing might actually work (except for how it apparently means "disease" in Chinese), and take to task the millions of people who are still deliberately clicking on spam.

1193 Apple hypocrisy: we salute you Friday, March 26, 2010 [37] [38]
Today's show opens with a not-unexpected rant about AT&T trying to sell you a $150 MicroCell to "supplement" the "coverage" you already pay for. A bit more on Google and China, Apple's unbelievably bizarre sandbox behavior in approving the otherwise super cool Line2 app, and cheap photos from space.

1194 Pee2Pee Monday, March 29, 2010 [39] [40]
The show's a pretty well-controlled train wreck right up until we start talking about the underwear that texts when it's, um, moist. No, you're not listening to the 404 (or Gadgettes), it's actually Buzz Out Loud. In real news (if you will), the first week's worth of iPads have apparently sold out and actual competition is coming to the wireless space ... around 2011. Also, cosmic rays are making your car go fast. No, really.

1195 Five years. You're welcome, tech world. Tuesday, March 30, 2010 [41] [42]
It's our five-year anniversary today, and wow, is that a long time. We've been here longer than the iPhone (rumors of a Verizon phone announced in June), almost as long as it took the U.S. House to ask the FTC to investigate Google Buzz, and about how long it will take Verizon to actually deliver the Android 2.1 rollout to Droid users.

1196 Schrodinger's iPad (podcast) Wednesday, March 31, 2010 [43] [44]
We talk a bit about the iPad and Rafe reveals that his iPad is in quantum indeterminacy. He has it reserved but he hasn't paid for it. And he won't know until the last minute whether he's going to buy it. Meanwhile the Google-Apple war heats up on the Flash and the tablet front. And Facebook leaks email all over the place. Ew.
