Buzz Out Loud 1318: Aliens want our nukes (podcast)

Alien coverage week continues on Buzz Out Loud, with testimony from U.S. Air Force pilots that aliens want us to disarm our nukes. For world peace, or to make sure we don't have any guns when they get here? But in actual news, a study finds that texting-while-driving bans don't reduce crashes and might even increase them. Plus, NAB goes even crazier. --Molly

Just thought I’d let you know that the iPad is coming to Target stores next week. Attached is a copy of the notice to store team members.

Regarding Facetime in the Emirates, Yahoo Messenger video and voice chat have been stripped out of the application for ages. Yahoo has a different version because there is a law against it in the UAE. Most people speculate that it is because the phone companies there want a stranglehold on communications. (For profit? For security? not sure.) Downloading Skype is banned as well, but if you install the non-Emirates version of Yahoo IM, or download Skype outside of the country, it will work when you go back over.
