Ep # Title Original Airdate Link MP3
595 Has HD DVD won? Thursday, November 1, 2007 [1] [2]
Wal-Mart has gone crazy, selling a $98 Toshiba HD DVD player. We'll talk about whether this makes HD DVD the winner over Blu-ray. Also, the Zune 2 shows up in the wild, and privacy groups want a 'do not track' list.
596 The good ship "Jollycast" Friday, November 2, 2007 [3] [4]
It's official: You are now allowed to buy yourself an HD DVD player. It's true. They're cheap enough now ($99 at Best Buy!) that as long as you don't invest in a big, silly, soon-to-be-obsolete video library, we'll allow this purchase. In other news, Sprint's still doing WiMax (w00t!) and Take-Two Interactive is still hiding dirty stuff inside their supposedly "edited" games. When will they learn?
597 Duh. Google phone Monday, November 5, 2007 [5] [6]
Was there other news today? Sure, there's a little news, but really, the only thing happening is the Google phone. Which is not a phone at all, but rather a platform based on open standards that aims to release the cell phone industry from the shackles in which it's held us all this time. OK. So, that's cool. But where's the pretty?
598 Android overlords? Tuesday, November 6, 2007 [7] [8]
Either Android--Google's phone platform--will take over the world, or the robots befriending our toddlers will. Either way, we're headed for a takeover of the technology variety. In other news, secret Asus sources say they're building an Apple tablet. Huh. Really? OK. If you want to.
599 Et tu, Prince? Wednesday, November 7, 2007 [9] [10]
Prince. You dear, sweet, funny, crazy, purple little man, you. What are you thinking? Why would you try to force your fan clubs offline by claiming that even pictures of their Prince tattoos violate your personal copyrights? You're killing us! In other news, 90,000 HD DVD players hit the streets, and Target refuses to sell Manhunt 2. And by the way, that game does sound downright oogy.
600 TiVo is watching YOU Thursday, November 8, 2007 [11] [12]
TiVo plans to give advertisers detailed personal info about you, but it's also offering lifetime service packages. Hmm. Stalemate. In other news, screenshots of the first app for Android phones, and will Digg be sold? Oh, and Brian Cooley offends all of Europe. Get your e-mails ready!
601 Europe gets its day Friday, November 9, 2007 [13] [14]
In today's episode, the Buzz army (European forces) mobilize to fight back against the rampant generalizations of Brian Cooley. Oh, and hey, you guys have the iPhone now! Which you don't even need, because you get way cooler phones for far less money all the time. Sigh. In other news, Sony's CEO now says the high-def format war is in a "stalemate." That, by the way, is an official tune change.
602 Interview with Lawrence Lessig Monday, November 12, 2007 [15] [16]
Revisit an interview with Professor Lawrence Lessig about Creative Commons.
603 Dancing with the Google Tuesday, November 13, 2007 [17] [18]
Today on BOL, Android hits the streets, Google pays for Android apps, and Androids may soon be dancing with...each other. It's a big Android day. In other news, Apple rumors heat up again, and hey, Tom's back! Hooray!
604 School daze Wednesday, November 14, 2007 [19] [20]
House Democrats propose a bill that would force universities to implement technical barriers to file-sharing or risk losing federal financial aid. Plus, they might be pressured into school-wide subscriptions to services such as Napster. Molly loses what shred of sanity remains. Tom wisely calls in sick.
605 It's the price point, stupid Thursday, November 15, 2007 [21] [22]
Drop the price, introduce a cheaper version, and your little PS3 starts selling like hotcakes! Plus, Leopard: huge in Japan; the first lawsuit is filed over Comcast's BitTorrent throttling; and the people to write to about the blackmailing of our nation's universities by the entertainment industry are Reps. George Miller from California and Ruben Hinojosa of Texas. Have fun!
606 The Kindle is coming! Friday, November 16, 2007 [23] [24]
Oh, boy, kids. No, really. Get fired up. Amazon's e-book reader, the Kindle, may be arriving on Monday! I know, right!? Breathe. In other news, the anti-P2P college bill (you know, "the blackmail of our nation's universities, etc. etc.") has advanced in the House. So, yay for that. And Google might just get all crazy and buy that wireless spectrum after all.
607 Little purple spies Monday, November 19, 2007 [25] [26]
Is Prince having the Pirate Bay administrators followed? Maybe chasing them around himself in a funny purple cloak? Also, is Sony finally starting to figure out this PS3 thing? Will Kindle rekindle our interest in e-book readers? Will anyone care about a Napster phone, or the Beatles on iTunes, for that matter? Answers within.
608 Shorter days and longer eyelashes Tuesday, November 20, 2007 [27] [28]
It turns out the iPhone isn't really tracking your every move. Just most of them. OK, some of them. It's not a big deal, trust us. In other news, SP3 for XP, Firefox 3 beta, and most importantly, the possible elimination of the leap second. Save the leap second! Also: longer eyelashes made easy.
609 Tech turkeys! Wednesday, November 21, 2007 [29] [30]
It's Thanksgiving in the US, and instead of reflections of praise or thanks, we plan on exposing the biggest tech turkeys of the year!
610 Stop killing the universe Monday, November 26, 2007 [31] [32]
We got into a series of debates on today's show about eBooks, DRM, the reliability of the 700 MHz spectrum, and most interestingly, how observing dark matter might shorten the life span of the universe. Of course, we also talked about unlocked iPhones in Germany, too. So it wasn't all cosmology.
611 Verizon's new horizon Tuesday, November 27, 2007 [33] [34]
Alternate titles: "Pigs fly: Verizon's new open network." "Hell freezes over at Verizon: Any app, any device by 2008." That's right, big news from Verizon today proves that, in order to change the game completely, all Google really has to do is join the game. Also: Cyber Monday may be a myth, but it's a Web-site-crashing myth just the same.
612 Judges gone wild Wednesday, November 28, 2007 [35] [36]
A judge throws 46 people in jail after no one will 'fess up to a ringing cell phone. Well, that's certainly understandable. In other jurist-related news, a more level-headed one orders the RIAA to show just exactly how a digital download can cost the industry $150,000--also understandable. And HD DVD shows off some of the features that actually make it cool.
613 Don't believe the lies Thursday, November 29, 2007 [37] [38]
The EFF says Comcast is lying about BitTorrent blocking, users say they're lying about the digital cable switchover, and we're just all fired up about GPS-enabled cameras. In other news today, AT&T's CEO says, um, the exact same thing that Steve Jobs says about how there's going to be a new 3G iPhone next year, and Congress is getting a little scary.
614 CyberCommand is go Friday, November 30, 2007 [39] [40]
Today, we're reminded that the Air Force is setting up a CyberCommand in order to deal with online threats. We have two questions: can we work there? And, when is that going to become a television show? In other news, MTV is putting South Park online, Google's bidding on the 700MHz spectrum for sure, and good news for TiVo.
