Facebook denies that it's building its own phone, despite its own claims of how great it would be.Captchas get replaced with ads (evil?). HP invents the tablet-powered printer. And Jason joins us on the other side of the board!

Hey buzz crew,
I happened to catch some of the craigslist list hearing and actually found it really interesting. Lots of good info and afterwords lots of spin.
Something I haven’t heard talked about that Bill Clinton Powell mentioned that CL *wasn’t* charging for adult ads until the attorneys general and FBI asked them to. He said the A.G. and FBI “suggested”
they do it so CL could track the credit card info and consequently more easily track predators.
Is this ignored as craigslist propaganda or just getting buried.
Thanks for a great show-
On Episode 1307 someone stated you can call Apple Care and jump through some hoops. I called apple care and said the free case app wasn’t allowing me to get a case, I was transferred to the online store rep who told me over and over that I was not eligible since I was 3 days outside my return.
I am dropping so many calls in my area it’s unusable. The best part was when the call dropped and they had to call me back to reiterate they could not give me a case.
LOVE THE SHOW.
This is Mike from Newport. I think you're missing a very, very important point about the CDMA version of WinPho7. I think Microsoft has completely dropped the ball yet again in another HUGE marketing mistake. As a student at the Naval War College, if you're going after an enemy, attacking their weakness is far more preferable to attacking their strong point. Now, if Microsoft wants to compete with the iPhone, would it make more sense to go straight at them on AT&T, or attack one of their weak points which is AT&T, with their network and customer service issues. Putting WinPho7 on Verizon and Sprint first would likely have resulted in some poaching of those dissatisfied customers and established a beachhead of an installed user base on the largest network before the worst kept secret in the industry happens, the Verizon iPhone. Seriously, its Kin all over again. Or I could be wrong.
