Buzz Out Loud Podcast 1150: Up the creek without a Bible

The FCC is coming for the schools and churches just like that crazy guy on the corner told you! On June 12 they'll require anybody using a wireless microphone that operators in the 700 MHZ spectrum to stop using that mic.

The FCC is coming for the schools and churches just like that crazy guy on the corner told you! On June 12, it'll require anybody using a wireless microphone that operators in the 700 MHZ spectrum to stop using that mic. That's right. The purge is coming! For microphones!. Actually, it'll affect Broadway shows, too. Will the FCC be able to round up the ne'er-do-wells? Will Google ruin U.S.-China relations? Well, that's another story. Literally.

I have been waiting to see if a company would be SO unseemly as to use the recent attack on US companies and Google taking a moral stance against China as a way to make financial hay. Well, this seals the deal. I am officially never buying another product from Motorola. If money's more important than the freedom of a billion people, then my money is better spent elsewhere.

While driving to work today, I realized I think I know the One More Thing for Apple’s Press Conference. While the Tablet/I-slate is a given, along with the introduction of streaming music and potentially a new iphone/iphone operating system, the real “One More Thing” will be… (cue drumroll) the announcement of the itunes store carrying the beatles complete anthology. {Lights will dim, and the Beatles music will fill the room, and cheers will rain from the rafters!}

Think about it; not only is this a perfect time, it would create such a hype and people would go crazy. The announcement is in physodelic colors kinda like the outfits on the sgt pepper’s lonely hearts club band album. Go ahead and cue your favorite beatles song as the title track.
