Buzz Out Loud 1271: Happy Bumper Day (podcast)

We'll do you a favor and give you the news in a nutshell: free bumpers (even non-Apple bumpers) and full refunds within 30 days of purchasing your phone if you're still not happy. There you go. Also, Droid X is sold out, the Facebook movie is going to be cool after all, if the new trailer is to be believed, and it turns out Palm was in fact the belle of the ball for a while there, but RIM and Nokia both blew it. Plus: Drunk HULC!

The HIGH from a wave form is called a Bi-Neural beet. One freq in one ear and a slightly different beet in the other causes an offset in your BRAIN (BRAINS , mmmmmmm). 100Hz in the left ear and 105 Hz in the right gives you a cognitive beet of 5Hz, which is in the DELTA brain wave area. I use them to help with sleeping. I have had insomnia since I was a child an now I sleep semi-normally. Nothing is perfect and isn’t everything a trick of the mind?

Love the show. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!! (said in Molly’s screaming rock voice).

Saw this the other day and had to snap a pic. The worst part: This Starbucks is literally next door to a FedEx/Kinkos. Protip: To avoid looking like a dork, use the $5 you spent on a venti mocha frap to print like a normal person.
