Buzz Out Loud 1255: Hands-on with the iPhone 4 (podcast)

We shall call the iPhone 4 "little smudgy" (because Rafe calls his iPad "big smudgy"). Kent German drops by the show to let us get a look at the shiny new toy that comprises, basically, the first half of our broadcast. Then, though, tune in for an update on the Droid X announcement that happened today, Android app privacy concerns, and Facebook's inexorable cruising toward 1 billion users.

Greetings JaRaMo, (jason, Rafe, Molly)

Open WiFi is not realy like leaving your house door unlocked
You don’t have to enter the house to get stuff.
Your WiFi router is a radio station broadcating to the public.

It’s more like putting your bank and credit card statements in the recycle bin,
and putting the recycle bin on the curb for pickup.
If you didn’t shred the papers first, don’t complain when your idenity is stolen.

Love the show,

Hi Molly, Rafe and Jason,

Just thought I’d throw my two cents in the ring concerning the ebook reader war. One point in favor of the Nook, in my opinion, is the ability to read adobe epub books. Many libraries have a very good selection of ebooks that I’m able to borrow and read on my Nook – for free. Personally I think that makes the extra $10 a little easier to take.

Thanks – and Love. The. Show.
