Buzz Out Loud 982: She bonged herself

Microsoft may change the name of the Kumo to Bing, which makes us wonder what the past tense of Bing would be. Bong. Also Last.FM is under attack from TechCrunch, and Eucalyptus is welcomed back into the App Store with open arms...and open searches.

“Hi buzz people! I haven’t listened to buzz for a week coz I’m in Turks
and Caicos sipping my rum inspired drink which I forgot the name.

Anyways while down there I met a guy which he claims that he knows
somebody that works for apple.

According to him a tablet is in the works and they will call it the
iBook.
Remember they scrap the iBook name and replace everything with the
macbook.

Make sense or maybe we were too drunk. I don’t know just passing along.

Love the show.

“The yellow pages should buy Skype from Ebay. Think about it if you are
searching the Yellow Pages website all you have to do is click a Call
button on the ad and Skype could launch. They could sell it to the
companies who advertise as a benefit and charge them for the calls to
their normal number or encourage them to get a Skype line.

Just a thought
