Buzz Out Loud 1302: Mark Hurd's soft landing (podcast)

On today's show, a rousing discussion of scandal, sex, and giving cover to wrongdoers. And that's just Oracle hiring Mark Hurd. In other tech news, Craigslist gets rid of its adult services section in the most passive-aggressive manner possible. Google Buzz costs the Goog $8.5 million, the Nokia N8 costs roughly the same, and we decide to eat the bear.

Hey dudes, I was curious as to why a beta angry birds on android (that only crashes on Evo) was a story and the release (a week earilier) of a full running webOS version was not. Is it because:
1. Molly only wants to talk about apps she can use
2. Raife wants to scorn his ex-lover, Palm
Or
3. Jon Rubenstein and I are the only ones using a webOS device?

Thank you,
Brent
PS (webos is a great mobile gaming platform with the “”cards”" and all, and hopefully will be an awesome tablet)

Hey Buzz crew,

The boys and girls over at MacLife (Specifically, Robbie Baldwin) have a fix for the Vertical vice Horizontal Red, Yellow and Green buttons on the full screen of iTunes.

It’s a terminal command, that goes like this…

defaults write com.apple.iTunes full-window -1

When you restart iTunes, then you have the familiar horizontal arrangement.

Love the Show!
Stan A-Z
