Ep # Title Original Airdate Link MP3
552 Apple's new luggable Monday, September 3, 2007 [1] [2]
Molly's amazed by Steven Jobs Softcon keynote, while Tom is taken with a new 1200 baud modem.
553 Interview with Nick Bostrom Tuesday, September 4, 2007 [3] [4]
We get to the bottom of the idea that we're all living in a simulation with the source of the theory himself.
554 iPod Touch for president Wednesday, September 5, 2007 [5] [6]
Apple unleashes a whole slew of new iPod gadgetry just in time for the holidays. Meanwhile, Tom dials in from an old phonograph machine, and Jasmine France gives her insight into the announcement.
555 iSuckers out two hundos Thursday, September 6, 2007 [7] [8]
Steve Jobs says he had to take your $200 in suckers' rent, because the holidays are coming and he can't move the holidays. Wall Street says it's really not too comfortable with a sudden, 30 percent iPhone price drop that reeks of desperation for sales. Molly says it's just plain mean, and Tom says it's your own darned fault. In other news, there actually is other news today. Check it out.
556 Longest episode ever Friday, September 7, 2007 [9] [10]
There should be a law against this. Apple, Net neutrality, and fair use, all in the same day. As you can imagine, we had some things to say on the trifecta of rant-itude, to the tune of about 46 minutes. But hey, think of it this way: it'll get you through pretty much the entire weekend. Enjoy!
557 One Linux chaser please (urp) Monday, September 10, 2007 N/A [11]
All that Apple talk giving you upset? Soothe yourself with a nice, eco-friendly Linux story.
558 How to turn off an iPhone Tuesday, September 11, 2007 [12] [13]
Apparently, turning off an iPhone isn't as easy as, um, pressing the power button. But could it be as easy as HTC teaming up with Google for the long-awaited, hotly rumored gPhone? That's the word from one HTC "insider" via...well, via some blog. We'll see. Also: Porn takes on piracy, and a third HD DVD format proves potentially attractive.
559 A darkness descends Wednesday, September 12, 2007 [14] [15]
Don't worry, Tom and I are actually feeling quite chipper today. We're referring to the darkness of Vista's new antipiracy technique, the "Black Screen of Death." Or ARE we? Hold those e-mails; listen first. We're also hoping the darkness of restrictive cell phone carrier networks will soon be listed by new mobile P2P technology in testing. And an appeals court issues a satellite TV piracy decision that's downright luminary.
560 Does my kilogram look fat? Thursday, September 13, 2007 [16] [17]
The standard kilogram apparently has lost a few micrograms of weight. Not such a bad thing I suppose, but it makes all the other kilograms look fat. Also fair use makes us trillions of dollars a year, so why don't I ever see any of it? I hear fair use has a posse. Maybe they have all the money.
561 Skip an ad, go to jail Friday, September 14, 2007 [18] [19]
We've already seen lawsuits over skipping commercials on television via VCRs and DVRs. Is the humble pop-up blocker next? Legal experts say, "almost certainly." Sigh. Meanwhile, in other news about overreaching, California says teens can't have cell phones, pagers, or laptops in cars, but everyone else can. Oh, and Google is signing on to fund a $30 million prize to the moon! We won't call it Moon 2.0, but they will.
562 Mash will save every one of us Monday, September 17, 2007 [20] [21]
Yahoo, ever on the cutting edge with hip new ideas and clever, totally not overused naming concepts, has just introduced a new social networking service, called Mash! Finally! And wow, will it do cool things, like let you create a profile and add applications to that profile and get a little feed of current happenings on the...oh, for crying out loud. You know what's cool? Nokia at work on a standardized removable flash memory format. That, we actually NEED.
563 AMD's three-legged chip Tuesday, September 18, 2007 [22] [23]
If your dog loses a leg, you don't take him out and shoot him, do you? Neither does AMD. In a move that's both clever and ecofriendly, AMD has decided that quad-cores with a single blown core can be packaged and resold as triple-core chips. Genius! Also today, Facebook gets all Google, the New York Times sees the power of search, and software goes toe-to-toe with Web apps. Again.
564 Stop saying squircle! Wednesday, September 19, 2007 [24] [25]
Stop the presses: there's news from the Zune camp! New Zunes dropping October 16! Or, you know, you could continue to drool over all things Apple, even though they've announced that they'll actively block iPhone unlocking efforts and they'll be making you repurchase any of your iPod games if you buy a new Nano or iPod Classic. Your choice. Also: Star Wars comes to the Wii. Wii-saber! Woo!
565 NBC ruins free Thursday, September 20, 2007 [26] [27]
NBC has introduced a free, ad-supported Web site where you can download some of its shows after they air on television. See, we thought we wanted that. But the shows expire a week after they air, they come wrapped in an NBC-specific player, they don't work on portable devices, and the service is, for now, Windows-only. In other news, Southwest Airlines dumps the cattle call, Web rises to the challenge.
566 I'm gonna .su you Friday, September 21, 2007 [28] [29]
ICANN is having a bit of trouble with the .su top-level domain. Seems they want to retire it, what with the dissolution of the Soviet Union and all. But their "order" to dump the domain has actually increased sales of .su websites. The Motherland lives on! Also today: "Halo 3" leaks, triggering massive spoiler alerts, and what you don't know about Bluetooth can snarf you.
567 Happy Halo 3 Eve! Monday, September 24, 2007 [30] [31]
Get your cookies and milk ready--you'll need them for standing in line. Halo 3 comes out at midnight tonight, and thanks to Shalin, I'll be spending the next three weeks soldering and sewing a tiny, little Master Chief Halloween costume. Plus, who you tryin' to fool with that EULA, Hulu?
568 I'll break your phone! Tuesday, September 25, 2007 [32] [33]
Why do you have to be so mean, Apple? The company issued a statement Monday saying its next firmware update will likely break unlocked iPhones. That's just mean. You know Apple doesn't have to do it this way, and unlocking is within your rights. Meanwhile there's a new Zune patent, and Google wants you to live in its virtual world.
569 Queen Elizabeth is a hot elf chick Wednesday, September 26, 2007 [34] [35]
A Chinese MMORPG refuses to allow male players to play as female characters, which (a) is ridiculous, and (b) sparked Tom to confess that he likes to play 'Civilization' as Queen Elizabeth. And here I thought it was all about the hot elf chicks. Anyway, iPhone unlocks may break the law, but Apple swears they won't break your, on purpose. And Microsoft gets the 'Halo 3' launch right, but not the packaging.
570 Wiki laws are wiki cool Thursday, September 27, 2007 [36] [37]
In New Zealand, you write the laws--but in Russia, the law write you! Meanwhile, New Zealand is putting one of its laws up on a wiki for the public to edit. Harmless and organized method for gathering public comment, or harbinger of a complete breakdown of worldwide democracy? You decide. Also, today Verizon flip-flops on censoring texting short-codes, and Verizon may be forcing the FCC to flip-flop on its 700Mhz open-spectrum requirement.
571 From the Podcast Expo Friday, September 28, 2007 [38] [39]
Luckily, the folks at Doubletree didn't mind us setting up our podcast studio in the front lobby.
