The otherwise staid and professional Jason Hiner joins us from TechRepublic to discuss important issues like the amazing Yonanna machine, which turns your banana into froyo just like that! Ok, ok, in tech news, a 19-year-old is arrested in the UK, but LulzSec says he's just the IRC moderator. Sounds important to us. Plus, your Facebook and Twitter posts will haunt you for seven years, just like your bad credit card purchases.
Ep. 1494: We Like + 1 Yonanna

Hi BOLers! It is ANONYMOUS from Cupertino. I would like to clear something up. There have been some reports of iCloud not getting a web interface. In fact, right now, that is what most people think. From what I hear from my colleagues and from what I get running Mac OSX Lion Developer preview 4 and iOS 5 beta, apple is working on a web interface. While apple PR has been saying that there is no web interface for iCloud, I think you realize that they are lying. In Lion, sending a invite via iCloud in iCal, will redirect you to p01-www.icloud.com/calendar/eventreply. In fact, you can go there right now. You will get a server error however. Just thought to let you know. I am not breaking my NDA completely because of this email, but also–yes. I do work for a company in Cupertino which is named after a fruit.
Something doesn’t add up here – why would Molly Wood invest in underground darknet hacker currency? I have two theories – either the Molly Wood from yesterday’s show wasn’t the real Molly Wood, or the real Molly Wood is pro-consumer Cnet editor Molly Wood by day, black market infopocalyptic Molly Hood by night. Who shot Molly Wood? The guy who messed with Molly Hood’s bitcoin trading and could do nothing but kill her.
PS: Your fault in Latin is tua culpa.
I heard about the Lion recovery partition from your show. I think that’s actually an unfortunate step back. I hope Apple provides a cd or a bootable usb alternative like with the MacBook Air. If the HDD fails or is in bad shape, a recovery partition could get affected defeating its purpose.
We need an alternative medium to boot to troubleshoot!
