Sure Apple has made their September 9 announcement official, and yeah Disney is buying Marvel and will soon own Spider-man. But we're most concerned about RIBA the robot bear who's coming to get our unhealthy thin humans. Protect yourself! Keep out of beds and wheelchairs and for heaven's sake stay over 135 pounds!

Hey Buzzies,

I always hear about how Natali is always breaking iPhones, and I just came accross this story on engadget with an impressive video of an iPhone protective sleeve that can protect the phone from a 2 story drop and a hard throw at a wall due to being made of a specially engineered, non-newtonian material, here is a link to the story, watch the video it’s quite impressive:

Hope that is helpful to Natali

Byebye!

Dear Buzz crew,

I just saw on TV the new commercial for “The Shack” about how they sell more phones than the population of Scandinavia. Big deal really. However, as I’m watching the commercial there are these huge mountains in the background and dancing phones with yellow braids and people-phone-things yodelling. Umm … the Alps are in *Switzerland*, not Scandinavia. They don’t yodel in Scandinavia and there aren’t even any huge mountains (Norway has some, but not like the Alps). I’m so infuriated!

Okay, maybe I’m biased … I am a Scandinavian Studies student after all. But hey, how does that mistake pass so many people? Hopefully someone on the Buzz crew can sympathise with me.
Love the show!

Hey Buzz Crew-

Seems you may want to join up and call upon the Colbert Nation to stop this horrible uprising that is about to begin:

You have been warned!
