Buzz Out Loud 943: Confickrolled
The whole world was fooled into fearing a huge storm of wormness that never happened. Was it because we were prepared or because it really wasn't that big of a deal at all?
The whole world was fooled into fearing a huge storm of worminess that never happened. Was it because we were prepared or because it really wasn't that big of a deal at all? We also avoid most of the April Foolery and talk some Nehalem processors and BlackBerry App World.

Hi Buzz Crew,
in Episode 942 you played a voice mail asking the question, why Buzz Out
Loud is so Apple/Mac Centric. You made comments on the voice mail but you
didn’t answer the question. Don’t you want to answer the question or don’t
you have a good answer to the question?
I have a theory why Buzz Out Loud and similiar podcasts are a little Apple
Centric, but I would like to hear you ideas on the point.
I would love to hear a little more Linux and Open Source News on the Show.
Love the show

Hey Buzz Crew,
Heard about what you said on yesterday’s show regarding the Skype
iPhone app in Canada.
I am a little perplexed. I (ex-Montrealer now in San Jose) was
chatting with my ex-boss (now friend) in Canada, yesterday, and we
decided to test the app. We both installed it on our iphones (he in
Montreal, me in San Jose) and we were both successful and enjoyed a
long free conversation.
It is available in Canada. At least it was to him.
Love you guys,
The MySQL Guy
Hey Buzz Crew,
you mentioned on Ep. 942 that iPhone users in every country except
Canada would be able to have and use the Skype app. Well guess what,
T-Mobile is OF COURSE blocking it for German customers as well.
I would say “bummer”, but I’m not an iPhone user, since the data plans
are way too expensive for me.
Love the show.
