Hey Buzz Crew,

Here’s one for you: a guy has a QR code on his gravestone, that takes people to a web site about him with pics, his obit, and the chance for friends to upload their own photos.

Death in the modern age.

Love the show.

Cheers,

Hi buzz crew.

You guys are always banging on blackberry about having co-ceos.
There is another company with this structure and they dominate in their industry.
They’ve stated it helps with their innovations and creating new products.
The company?
California pizza kitchen
Love the show

In listening to episode 1520 about Facebook adding the “”expecting”" option as a status… do you guys follow anyone on Facebook who ‘s expecting a kid? This is the most unnecessary change EVER to Facebook. I understand it’s a huge and exciting event in a person’s life, but when was the last time you saw an expectant parent go more than about 2 updates max without telling us something else about their pregnancy?

What obvious thing are they gonna add next, an option that lets you notify that you’re a Ritchie Rich with too much disposable income? Oh right, they already have that: “”sent from my iPad”"
