Wikileaks uncovers a treasure trove of diplomatic dish that could disrupt not only the political but social fabric of the world. Online spending finally takes off (again), and Homeland Security confirms it's planning to systematically dismantle the structure of the Internet at the behest of private companies. So, that's awesome. Also, the zombie apocalypse is nigh, led by a phalanx of terrifyingly young mice. --Molly

I think one of the more scarier aspects of the Wikileaks’ leaks this weekend is Washington’s response. I was watching the Sunday talk shows, and every congressional leader thought that if new laws were needed to go after Wikileaks that should be pursued. People like Wikileaks are scaring politicians into writing bad laws.

Hi buzz crew!
Now there’s a way to protest those intrusive TSA X-ray scanners without saying a word.
4th Amendment Metallic ink-printed undershirts and underwear.
This is a TechCrunch story that ya’ll should enjoy. These guys are getting real creative with streaming content. If it does not standup in court then all those apps that let you view your home computer remotely are in trouble.
After all the complaints about the iOS 4.2 screen-orientation-to-mute-button switch off, I immediately thought of you guys when I saw this article. Enjoy.
I’m sure a billion people have sent this, but I wanted to pass this along for two very important reasons, (a) i love you guys and your show, and am happy to make you happy (b) if you don’t stop whining about the things you dislike about your FIVE HUNDRED PLUS DOLLAR TOY that those of us without jobs or that kind of disposable income can afford, I might cry. Of course, if you want to give me one, I’ll join you in whining about whatever is wrong with it. =)
