Rumor Has It, Ep. 11: Is Google the Internet's next pimp? (podcast)

Things get crazy on Humiliation Day on Rumor Has It. After the shenanigans, we discuss Windows 8, laugh at the reported name of RIM's new phone, scoff at the rumored price of the Apple television, and oh man, what doesn't Google have its hand in?

Wow, today Rumor Has It goes crazy. Things get weird. (But weird in the best possible way.)

It's the first show of the month, which means it is Humiliation Day, and Karyne lost yet again! Emily celebrates by trying out a new accent, and it's not Russian! But then Karyne sort of wins by somehow roping Stephen and Emily into her embarrassing punishment. Everyone is mortified.

After the shenanigans, we discuss Windows 8, laugh at the reported name of RIM's new phone, scoff at the rumored price of the Apple television, and oh man, what doesn't Google have its hand in?

Hint, we on Rumor Has It surmise Google could soon go into the prostitution trade--though, uh, don't quote us on that, Internet.
