Good news, everyone! Twitter's getting its own servers and Skype will now run in the background on an iPhone. But beware: The IPocalypse is nigh, Apple now has more software insecurity flaws than anyone, and robots can now move faster than you can blink.

In reference to your “”that guy”" or “”those guys”" found squatting at Wi-Fi hotspots, I submit what a local (Houston area) coffee shop has done to combat the issue. Instead of cutting the internet they just covered up the electrical outlets. It keeps the desktops (and more) away and the laptops or mobile devices surfing the information superhighway…for period of time anyway. I like it because it keeps the seats open and my wife can watch a Netflix TV show and play cards. We have Wi-Fi at home but sometimes it’s good to get out of the house, and a cup of coffee is a small price to pay.
Hey Buzz Crew,
I’m just catching up after being away for a few days, and I noticed there were multiple references to Rafe’s pending robopocalypse. I thought that, in addition to that wicked quadrotor you discussed a few months back, the teaching Honda-bots, the gun-toting DMZ bots and the blatantly-Cylon-Raider bots, we should add this borderline-frightening news in bot evolution.
Love the show!

Hey Buzz Crew,
I’m listening to episode 1273 and about halfway through, Rafe mentioned Nokia’s CEO being tossed out over screwing up the acquisition of RIM. Did he mean Palm or was there a separate incident where Nokia considered aquiring RIM as well?
