On today's show, Brian Tong offends nearly the entire Internet, so consider that fair warning. HTC is willing to negotiate with Apple, Google is willing to make it easier to get your account back if you're suspended for not using your real name on Google+, and Netflix is willing to lose a bunch of money this quarter in hopes of surviving beyond it.

Attention Brian Tong: Adam West was not the first actor to play Batman on screen. There were a couple of theatrical Batman serials produced in the 1940s, one starring Lewis Wilson in 1943 and one with Robert Lowery in 1949. There may have been others.
This is not in any way a slight to Adam West, who in many ways perfectly captured the essence of a crime-fighting airborne mammal. He did after all star in the first theatrical Batman feature in 1966.
Hi Buzz crew, was reading about Molly and her issues with her Droid.
Really sorry to hear about that; I can understand why the iPhone may interest you.
If you get that won’t you have to update your Boss sound system since the iPhone 5s 30 pin adapter won’t work with the previous 30 pin adapter? Oh and you’ll need to re-purchase all your songs in iTunes… and use iTunes…
Love the show

“Here it comes, Buzz Crew…the march of the celebs to Google+, just like Google wanted. So far I’ve seen “”Verified”" accounts for Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Kylie Minougue, and Whitney Houston (are they all represented by the same agent?).
Of course, I don’t think I need to tell you what this means in terms of the big picture: It’s only a matter of time until Google+ is no longer Bieber (Verified) free. Brace yourselves, early adopters, we’re about to be crushed by the throng that has overtaken almost every other social network created by man. Goodbye thoughtful, intelligent G+ discourse…hello Belieb-ers (did I really just type that) whose daily topics will include endless “”Justin, please circle me”" posts and who will author multiple 5,000 comment posts about the intricacies of his doo.
For one bright shining month, we were able to stave off the “”water”" of the internet that is Justin Bieber, who finds a way into even the smallest crack in a social network. If was fun while it lasted.
Love the show. Keep up the good work!
