The Buzz Report: Things you should never do on a cell phone

3:52 /

The world's biggest nail gun, Facebook doesn't go public, plus Paul Revere & the Phone Sluts!

Hi, everyone, I�m BC in for MW who filed for her IPO and now has to observe an SEC-mandated quiet period. Best scam to get time off I�ve ever heard of. Welcome to the Buzz Report. First, the gadget of the week. (turn right) The Gadget of the Week is...Electric Death, aka, the U.S. Navy Railgun. It shoots a 5� shell up to 220 miles without using any gunpowder -- it does it with 33 megajoules of electromagnetics, sort of like one of those maglev trains, just deadly. Raytheon got the nod to work on it this week, and it could be on U.S. ships by 2025...And I can�t wait for a surplus one to come on eBay to mount on one of our review cars! Now the news � With all the buzz, you�d have thought Facebook went public this week, when in fact they just filed papers saying they intend to. But in the meantime this week�s filing indicates FB will be worth $75B-100B...$21B-$28B of that will be Zuckerberg�s shares, which still won�t convince him to buy a shirt with a collar. For most of us FB users who will never own the stock, the best part of it them going public is that they have to �go public�: Formally and regularly report to the world what they do and how they do it. That may lead to greater transparency when it comes to our privacy, or at the least greater pressure to do so. Anti-corporate group SumOfUs started a petition this week for Apple to make iPhone 5 the first �ethical iPhone� by demanding its manufacturing partners like FoxConn in China improve working conditions. Some 35,000 people have signed it last we checked, about the same number of Chinese who lined up for jobs at for jobs at FoxConn this week. If you saw the leaked photos a few weeks ago of the supposed new BlackBerry designed by Porsche and realized the Panamera isn�t the only ugly thing with the Porsche name on it, take heart. A new leak suggests THIS is in fact the new BlackBerry, blessedly devoid of any Paul Revere pewterware design cues. But as you can also see, it�s a touch device - no famed BB keyboard. And the rumor is it�s the single new phone they�ll be rolling out late year. What sticks out further than Pinocchio�s nose? RIM�s neck. But that cure beats being long on yesterday. Speaking of phones, new research out this week: If you carry an Android phone, you�re a whore. This survey was done by Match.com, beating MIT to the punch, and found, in a nutshell: - iPhone users are most likely to fish off the company pier but also to call you the next day after a first date. - Android users are most likely to have a one night stand, do it on the first date, or both. They ain�t never calling ya. - And BlackBerry users are most likely to get drunk on a date. They are carrying a BlackBerry after all. And it gets better: Another survey this week tells us BlackBerry users are most likely to continue their call when they�re on the can. Don�t do that. Don�t leave that damned stall door unlocked. And don�t make noises like you�re having geriatric sex. JUST STOP ALL OF IT. And that�s it for this week, everyone. I�m BC. Molly�s back next week, all wealthy and smug.
