Buzz Out Loud 709: We're gonna need a bigger cloud

We explain Live Mesh, the Ninth Circuit tries to explain why customs can search your laptop without any reason at all, and eBay (yawn) sues Craigslist over some (yawn) stock stuff.

We explain Live Mesh, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals tries to explain why customs can search your laptop without any reason at all, and eBay (yawn) sues Craigslist over some (yawn) stock stuff. Also, Apple buys a chipmaker and that story leads to wild speculation about chips and such. No, really. It's a tech show. Haven't you heard this show before?

You hurt my feelings

Hey BOL dudes,

You hurt my feelings when you called me a smack talker while I was listening to your podcast over a 100MB fiber connection, so I have decided to send you proof that your American DSL is really really slow. Go to http://www.dslreports.com/archive?c=us and look at the fastest connections as stated by DSL reports, and then look at the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_Broadband_Network and prepare to be AMAZED (I meant, jealous) by our whopper of an internet connection speed.

Meat from the test tube

Hell-o JoToMo,

How’s is it go-ing? Writing in response to EP708 (which btw is “tob” in leet speek. So if BOL=708=TOB… BOL=TOB

at any rate…

Your story about using stem cells reminded me of this story from CBS that I found on Digg in March.

To sum up the article they take a powder made from pigs bladder and sprinkle it on a severed limb and it grows back… they interview a man who grew back a finger including bone, skin, muscle (meat), and the nail!

I don’t wanna geek out but when this stuff hits the market I hope they call it Bacta.

Thanks for buzzing my ears 5 days a week, looking forward to your live show in Monterey.

PlayStation Home

Hi BUZZ crew,

In episode 708 you talked about Home for the PS3 being delayed and Molly said she couldn’t really figure out what it is used for. Well I’m in the closed beta and it is more than Mii’s on parade!

Yea there is a bunch of Second Life stuff, you can customize your avatar, it’s clothes, your apartment, and so on but for me the big draw is going to be private games.
You will be able to invite people to join you in a private game session and to be able to have several people join me for some Gran Turismo 5 Prologue so we won’t have to deal with all the kids driving the wrong way on the racetrack is a great feature.

There is more things it can be used for I’m sure but the private game rooms is a biggie for me.

Later,
--Dave in Broken Arrow, Okla.
