Burning Chrome guy asks why this week has been Bros Out Loud

EMAILS

My 14 and 11 year old kids, their friends, and my co-worker’s kids all have iTouchs. Like most parents, I have NO interest in giving my kids PHONES with LIMITED DATA PLANS where they can watch YouTube, stream music, watch Netflix, play MMOs, send/receive large pictures/videos/etc via email. They have cheep messaging phones that are moderately rugged compared to the big-screened iPhone or Android phones with the data turned off. While in a WiFi area they have “”smart phone like”" capabilities. If they break their iTouch I can still call them. If we go out of the country (my wife is from India) I don’t have to worry about them accidentally using data.
Right now my daughters know iOS so guess what phone they want when I allow them to upgrade to a smart phone (once they have a way to pay for the increased cost and the monthly data plan).
Think hard now…

Hi Buzz Crew,

My girlfriend manages a business in Washington DC and she noticed that Yelp was filtering a lot of her 5 star reviews. She called them up to find out why these reviews were being filtered and Yelp tried to sell her a $2000 business membership of some sort which would give her control over how reviews are filtered. Is it just me or does this scream protection racket?

Thought you’d be interested.

As an aside, the sales people for their new deals service are apparently super pushy and rude.

Love the show, thanks.

Lol!
Brian guessing what my name was yesterday was hilarious. Of all the names that start with a “”J”", he HAD to guess Jared. I have a younger, less handsome brother named Jared, but no that is not MY name :P Methinks a little Nostrotongus came out while guessing that? And this is why I love your show.
