Good news: Google says so long to the "Search" button, Mozilla launching an online gaming directory, and a jailed journalist Twitters from his cell. Bad news: Snakebots climb trees! And Twitter has dedicated servers for, gulp, Justin Bieber. Special guest Darren Kitchen joins us.

Today’s featured Buzz Out Loud remix at the end of the show:
I’m writing with regards to episode 1302 in which you discussed the Nokia N8, mainly because you guys only got two things right about it:
the screen and the fact that it’s manufactured by Nokia. As for the price, Nokia state an MSRP of 379€, though they’ve never shied away from shooting themselves in the foot, so pricing it at 999$ is not something I would put past them.
Maybe you were thinking about the N9.
Love the show,

Hey Buzz Crew!
My Boyfriend is assistant Manager at a local convience store chain in Wisconsin. He was telling me that they are partnering with blockbuster to get thier box in all thier stores. Also that they were going to provide discounts on food if you rented a movie. Like a $1 off a pizza with a movie rental or $.50 off your ice cream.
A while ago you said they were filing bankruptcy, but as far as I’ve heard the boxes are still coming? One last desperate attempt to adapt? Personally I would have rather had a redbox.
Love the Show, It’s the highlight of my night shift everyday.
Tuesday, August 31: Do you think novels should have the same product placement as TV and movies?
