Buzz Report: Apple is my bad boyfriend

>> Hi! I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the BUZZ report. This week Craigslist turns on us, Apple turns on us and white people turn on themselves. But first, it's the Gadget of the Week. The Gadget of the Week is the International Dance Party. It's an art installation in Berlin created by a guy called Nicholas Roy. It uses radar to sense dancing near it and then it opens up to reveal a disco ball, flashing lights, loud electronica music. There's even a fog machine.

>> The LED sign displays instructions in over 20 languages. What are the instructions? Simple, dance to start the party. Now if you keep dancing, the International Dance Party will reach it's highest level of intensity rewarding you with a blue beacon on the top [siren wailing] and ground effects below.
>> It's a pretty crazy. The only problem I see with it is that you have to be dancing near it in order to activate the music, so somebody had to be dancing before the music started which pretty much means that you're throwing a party full of crazy people. And now for the news. The Department of Justice this week approved a merger deal between XM and Sirius meaning the two struggling satellite radio companies can now become one giant struggling satellite radio company. An organ man lost almost all of his belongings this week after a nasty Craigslist hopes. Someone posted a phony ad saying that Robert Salisbury [phonetic] had moved away and left all of his stuff including his horse for the taking. Salisbury got a call about the ad, drove to his house only to find people hauling away his stuff and refusing to give it back. He said that when he tried to stop them, they actually just showed him the Craigslist ad as proof that they were on the right. And yeah, I know, the same exact thing happened in Washington State just last year. See this is all because the Pacific Northwest has this little known common law. It's kind of similar to possession as nine-tenths of the law. It's a Craigslist post is seven-sixteenth of the law and that's good enough for us. This week, Apple has been taking a lot of flock for including Safari in its Apple update program. They're basically attempting to install an entirely new browser on your system and kind of pretending that it's just a software update. Not cool and you know all this call me thinking about Apple again and I think I finally figured out my problem with them. Apple is my bad boyfriend. Check it out. Here's Apple. He's like this crazy hot really good looking bad boy rebel type. He's got money, drive a fabulous car. We go to this all great parties together. He knows all the coolest people. He's like the guy I always wanted but the longer we're together, I just kinda feel like, he's kind of jerk. I mean he's always telling me how to do things like, "No you can't transfer one photo at time in iPhoto, you have to do them all at the same time, what are you stupid?" It's like pushing me around, tell me what applications I have to install, what cellphone carrier I have to use and he only cares about how I look like he wants me to have this fancy outfits but he does not care if I have enough accessories or if am too cold or if these heels hurt my feet as long as I look good. You know, it just doesn't feel like a healthy relationship. I just think I have to start doing what's right for me and I'm gonna have to dump that jerk no matter how hot and rich he is. Sometimes, it's better to go with the ugly, nice guy and now it's time for What's Clogging the Tubes. This week, it's everybody's favorite new blog Stuff White People Like. This blog first appeared about 2 months ago and it is all the rage. The author has even landed a book deal already. The side is basically a vicious satire of the stereotypical white person. He's got this list as a pristine of 92 things. I don't know, I mean I haven't read it. I'm not sure how accurate it is like I went through the list and I only matched up with coffee, farmer's markets, organic food, West Anderson movies, tea, oh, guy get the children, traveling micro berries, wine, wriggly fields, snow boarding, daily show, Colbert Report, breakfast places, press development, network issues, public radio, Asian fusion food, whole food and grocery co-ops, catching gadgets. Oh God! Japan, knowing what's best for poor people, I totally I just do, expensive sandwiches, recycling bin, the only white person around Oscar parties, bottles of water, musical comedy, multilingual children, hating corporation, outdoor performance, close dinner parties in San Francisco. Oh God! It's my shame on display. I'm Molly Wood, the whitest women in America. This has been the BUZZ report. Thanks for watching.
