Buzz Out Loud 1352: Never forget ... that you actually own these songs (podcast)

The Internet is profoundly underwhelmed by Apple's announcement that the Beatles catalog will now be available on iTunes. The more germane question, really: where the heck is iOS 4.2? Also, turns out the Kinect (unlike Apple's Beatle announcement) is a runaway hit. Schmidt's not worried about Facebook Messages, and also, the Internet wants to stop the TSA's airport junk-groping. --Molly

“Hi Buzz crew,

I am a longtime listener of BOL. In both episode 1350 and 1351, you mentioned Lenovo’s new hybrid tablet “”Le Pad”". And you guys were making fun of the name… :-)

Although I am not particularly found of the name myself, I understand where the name came from. “”Le”" is definitely not French, it’s Chinese ("?"), and it means “”happy or happiness or laugh”". I wanted email you guys during the weekend after hearing last Friday’s episode, however I thought BT might be able to figure it out on Monday. And he didn’t… :-)

By the way, in this year’s CES, Lenovo also displayed a Android phone named “”Le Phone”" which is the same idea.

Keep up the good work and have a great week!

Isaac
