Buzz Out Loud 1495: Lytro: the "magic camera" that's blown our minds (Podcast)

On today's show, we fall in love with Lytro, the game-changing photo technology that we can't wait to get our hands on. Get in line, geeks. Also, will Yahoo buy Hulu? And can we call it Ya-Hulu if they do-do? Plus, Apple scores the broadest patent ever, which makes us wonder if the patent office is even trying anymore, and Shazam is coming to your TV.

EMAILS

Hello Gang,

I was thinking about that thing where Facebook is going to help you automatically tag your photos. I see it failing in my circle of friends. I’m not sure if this is common but my family members use the tagging feature to show people pictures, not no say who is in them. For example, if my wife takes a very cute picture of my our niece she will tag it as her mother. That way the picture appears in her mothers feed.

I have preached to them how wrong this is but they just don’t hear it. When I get an email from Facebook that says you have been tagged in a photo it usually means it’s a photo someone wants me to see, and not one that I’m in.

So now Facebook is going to get it all wrong. When someone posts a picture of either of my sons Facebook will think they are both me.

I am wondering, is my family crazy, or do others use Facebook tagging this way?

Thanks, and love the show….

Okay crew @Brian_tong and @Mollywood.

So 1500 is around the F-ing corner! Well your Iowa fan is trying to figure out how to listen. I/we will be in Florida (a world away I know). Is there an app I can listen to on my Blackberry or on my girlfriends android? Or is it broadcast on the radio?

Thanks much!!!!! Enjoy the liquor, and as always love the show! (even though my work blocks streaming, I can download it)
