Look for Brian Tong's new movement on Facebook: pain-ray-free produce. But the rest of us actually think it's kind of cool that the government pain-ray has been re-tasked to warm freezing plants. Also, the Supreme Court has finally ruled in the Bilski patent case, giving us a relatively non-destructive moderate decision. ACTA is ramping up again, and we make a date to go see "The Social Network."

Today's featured Buzz Out Loud remix at the end of the show:
In reference on episode 1257 when u were talking about netflix all for no deliveries on Saturday, that would help them out in there profits cause now with 4 or 5 days a month it will take longer for movies sent through the mail so people are not going to be getting as many movies a month
Love the show
What’s up Buzz Crew? I just got done listening to Fridays show where Raife commented that he’s not ordered a phone cause he doesn’t want it shipped to his AT&T account address. I too, didn’t want mine shipped there (my ex-girlfriends house, the bills in her name still), but that wasn’t gonna stop me even if I had to camp in front of her house to wait for fed-ex. So I ordered, prepared to accept the inevitable. Later that day while checking my order on apples site I noticed I could edit my order. Indeed, it let me change the shipping address to my work easily. No problems at all. Hope this helps :)

Just wanted to share a little cellphone tip with eveyone. My parents have used Verizon for as long as I can rememeber but since I’ve moved to NW Arkansas (aka ATT country) I’ve noticed a dip in service, especially with texts. There were times where a call would come in only to push a few texts along with it through the pipes. I soon figured that calling my voicemail also pushed them through. It only takes about 5 seconds of airtime and I don’t even bother typing in my PIN. Yes Molly, that ain’t right. But it works.

I believe Rafe started the ball rolling on the demise of OS X.
Follow me on this theory:
1) Rafe talks about his theory on Buzz Out Loud.
2) Listener Writes Steve Jobs
3) Steve Jobs write back denying it
4) Steve Jobs thinks about the ideas merits over a few days or weeks. (queue the Scooby Doo screen fade and creepy music)
5) Steve Jobs puts a plan into place to eliminate OS X.
A plan he never would have thought of if it weren’t for Rafe.
Keep smiling and have fun
