Buzz Out Loud 1427: Why Yahoo can't have nice things (podcast)

We're back in the bunker, everyone, talking the Japan crisis and its effect on tech supply chains. Plus, bid on the SXSW iPad 2, or if you don't have that kind of cheddar, buy Street Fightr and Sonic for iPhone and the proceeds go to charity. Obama's IP czar wants to make unauthorized streaming a felony, and Netflix throws down in a big way for original content. Plus, Microsoft hits it out of the park with IE9. I know, right? Who'da thunk? --Molly

Hey BrOllito,

Last episode you were talking room-mates and data caps. My room-mate has an independent video health program (http://www.guerillahealthreport.com) and works with editors/pressing companies through the Internet. Also, I’m a photographer and after I finish editing photos all day, while watching Netflix, I upload high def print quality files to our online store before playing WoW. I’ve thought about using carbonite for offsite backup, but 2TB drives? Forget it.

Ps. If Ben Huh hits overage fees does that mean he’s hit a “”kitty-cap?”"

Love the show! Keep up the great work!

Aaron Spain
