Buzz Out Loud 1349: YAFE: Yet Another Facebook Event

In titles we didn't use because they're not SEO-friendly, topics today include the fact that it's on like Brian Tong (tm), Jessica Simpson's tooth fur, gold does grow on trees, and tiny fists of rage. We interview RockMelt's CEO and ask him to explain that name, and we preview the latest TRON trailer MST3K style. Did we mention the tooth fur? Ew. --Molly

Hey ToBeMo (or not ToBeMo),

Today my wife found an iPhone on the street. It was locked and she didn’t know what to do with it. Using the iPhone hack I learned on BOL I was able to get to the contacts list. He didn’t have a “Home” number defined, but he had imported his contacts from his email account, so the group name was his email address. I quick Google search lead me to a name and phone number and within 10 minutes I had returned the phone.

While it’s still scary how insecure the phone is, in this case it worked out well.

Love the show,

–kevin
