Google's face recognition scares us with its privacy implications, Hollywood gives us $30 dollar movies, and its not an April Fool's Day joke. Honeycomb needs to bring more native apps to the platform, ASAP, and a SmartFart App already exists!

Hurricanfreak, doesn’t like the show.
“In response to your call for creating a day in show 1438, I suggest you create “”Computer Love Day.”" It would be a day to celebrate people who are brought together by internet dating, Facebook, Twitter and other online functions. We need a day to recognize these new forms of communication that bring otherwise hermit-like nerdy people together.
And we could celebrate with Kinect Sex.
On Thursdays show you said that Google’s +1 does not integrate Twitter or Facebook. I’m here to tell you it does (at least from Twitter). You have to link your Twitter and Facebook account to your Google profile to get this feature.
Hey BOL crew,
Just to let you know, RIM is not joking about marketing it’s playbook. Here in Montreal, they just started the countdown for availability at Staples. It’s on every screen at the store. Here’s a shot of their big posters (in French for Molly to read).
Love the show.
Vincent from Montreal.
I’m listening to show 1438, and I was amazed when you got to the Paul Allen slamming Bill Gates story where you were all feeling sorry for poor Bill. I know you’re all youngsters, so you may not remember the old days of Evil Bill, but he was a vicious competitor who left a trail of decapitated opponents in his wake. I know he’s a sweetheart now, but ask Marc Andreesen about how sweet he was back then.
And Brian, why bring this rant on Bill now? He wants to sell his book!
