You take the show edited and now that we're all about like can we take a flyer on computer -- beat he had this great idea. For offering like tech -- -- And it turns out you like it I the first after the show do little tech news and then the second at the show in a special guest special guest for you and then of cores that we're dedicating the whole feedback loop. Beloved buys because it is the day of love and we. We are cute but we also. Equipment in London -- that then at that. -- -- We we we really worth it alive work that like rolled in here at check -- the bikini but -- dollar math -- -- -- the link -- -- figures again. A let me be clear that I was not in the -- at the same time that didn't happen now and and -- -- the news report at the -- nearly let's listen. From little -- a little while so I -- it took the week off from the world and came back late Thursday night. Just in time for the big news on Friday that the Internet brought down the Egyptian government basically Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stepped down. On Friday would you guys probably all know by now because it is the -- story in the world but the aftermath of this story has been phenomenal mean. All about. How this was the a FaceBook and Twitter revolution and it's kind of thing you know I mean we. It started with Iran with with protest movements that were organized to -- but in this is the first time that really the protestors are giving credit to FaceBook. For being the place that they were able to digitally organized. And start you know the eighteen a revolution that toppled. Thirty year old. Haters shut down if you guys remember we had talked about him Google's executive executive while -- -- if that's Howard pronounce his -- properly he was first. -- you know according to people potentially missing because he got out to Egypt. To be a part of the cause in the revolution and he after he was found and after -- The turn over there going yes for yeah he literally Alia that -- he was released and cuts in after that he -- think the Mark Zuckerberg and called them out thanking -- for FaceBook for being such a crucial part. The other costs. Yeah I mean it was really it's pretty interesting and then -- it seems to be spreading. You know and I think we can expect to see more of this in the coming -- -- -- now I'm now. I'm seeing Twitter posts. Daily. That are like women are calling for you know certain regimes -- -- -- I can remember which one and I mean even started in the -- but it -- started -- neat idea. Its web site Italy yes yes that's right Italian women are calling -- told her blurb but but but Sony Berlusconi. And it -- photo let's go -- The step down thank you are totally out of pocket. But what's amazing about this more than -- they and the fact that. We all talk about faith that we -- joke about things that we alleys -- for social communications but never. Would we have ever imagine FaceBook to be able to really be part of utilized human rights. Government over -- -- that's one of the things that. -- it just took on a life of it so it and it really amazing to see how that can. Any kind of feel like this is you know -- as people have talked about the revolution will be tweeted that kinda feels like this is actually the start of that now the power. Is so clear. To everyone that -- if it can mean unstoppable force and -- it's pretty interest in this amazing stuff to and a very cool. I edit quick wrap up from mobile world congress and -- have to say that as slowly as possible impossible. Why they call it that. So okay okay I will want to be having -- product that -- -- -- Erickson finally unveiled their experience play this is the phone that we basically knew everything about already it was where -- and trade based on. It also has on the PlayStation controls on it with a -- touch pad so they finally unveiled its honestly. All the pictures I didn't surprise us it is rock and 854 by 480 pixel resolution screens sixteen point seven million. Colors processor wise -- it doesn't look like the in the article -- -- but it'll support Wi-Fi hot spot it runs on gingerbread Android 2.3 cell armed. Yeah but -- integrated into one big and little interactive snap dragon dragon are we actually have a really good side by side comparison MacKenzie wondering about the PlayStation phone vs the Sony and GP. That's the PSP -- -- it's a prototype name out today but anyway that we it would got to get like you know spec to spec chart there and so. That the and GPA is gonna have the four core arm cortex a nine that is gambling the mini version of the core processors -- in the PS3. Vs the one gigahertz Qualcomm center in processor and experience when I can't say considering how many dual core phones are now available the fact that -- area -- -- with 22 gigahertz processors kind of. -- potentially let down if it's really going to be gaming and I think I'd experience that comes with a dedicated graphics processors so it's not really has dedicated about -- attack. So I'm glad you guys had that -- three those that's -- but I didn't seem that article. I appreciate that's love right there that love that doesn't mean picking you up when -- fallen down -- be -- less than three year. Leo. You worry. Is that not the most romantic thing and you could make in the modern world. I mean I I hope everyone understands that -- I hope everyone understands that. Also at mobile world congress unveiled we talked about the rumors of it been released. The Samsung. Galaxy to have their ten point one inch version of this. Running honeycomb it'll be a dual core processing tablet Bonnie Todd got her hands on -- guys have a chance to check out our on CNET TV dot com. You can see you know how -- -- -- feels compared her tiny little hands. -- -- -- Does -- separate -- tickets -- quad band tablet sports -- just create less. Arm also has Wi-Fi all flavors of Wi-Fi AVG and -- and Bluetooth two point one but on -- that the you know Samsung putting in their entry for a ten point one -- looks really nice. It does and our -- we are starting to see some serious ten inch tablet competitors now into the iPad and that HP announced there is right on both content and really now the touch -- -- that's bad of a human thought but it's it's all right to missile I. It is such a negative imagery you -- -- in -- about this is like a lot of times like when the iPhone came out. All the cellphone companies are trying to come out with like. IPhone killers and I think it's interesting but also smart that they're basically embracing the design of the iPad yet I think we're gonna do it with our own flavor of OS and features but really that design -- it's because instead of trying to be different than people Bible -- -- -- they're not. -- really just trying to keep it it even makes it more identifiable -- general content like electronic yet how this design looks. And I'm glad to see that you because they it it really was a successful design. Implement and public can't remember its of aloha. They are take but they're taking that -- kind of -- -- improving on in various ways like you're seeing the dual core processors you're seeing that -- -- -- 1080 Ph.D. video recording O and I'm glad to see it because that first I was worried that everybody seemed to be like rim right when they have a playbook announcement. Everyone seem to be skirting. The head to head comparison even Samsung when they came out the original account the tablet with a seven it's -- -- -- -- So we're gonna go smaller tablet Arab business oriented tablet and then it took them awhile I think to finally -- right you know what the hell that we're doing it. We're going ten inch iPad competitor all the way yet that I -- over the weekend -- rumors that -- might be 1199. Yeah. There's another price there's another price to be not only that -- you might hit close to 12100 -- they said that -- -- the -- and -- -- -- in India -- before that we had 600 and and we -- that we had 800 area so I mean whatever will be isolating sound is going to be where this all you know it's like they've all been able to go head to head but not so farm price I think they're not asking me about it -- -- -- estate prices and his balloons. Out goes let's -- that look good she got 12100 dollar and I'm okay holidays -- Now -- foes say we are seen at mobile world congress. Kind of a fall -- -- the whole iPhone nano or the mania iPhone that. Apple's been working on behind the scenes and when -- you know that the story came out exactly during the time the mobile world congress than I have I suspect there is a theme that I know who we are there is nothing that had given the timing of that but. A -- what an article from a -- of Mac and also the Wall Street Journal is reporting is that the iPhone nano that everyone's talking about and again. As of last week the articles that this may or may not even. Can't be an official product in May not come to fruition they're working on something like this but the kind of main thing is that they're working on to drive the cost down. Of the iPod iPhone nano are accidentally on adopting the name mighty effect and there are trying to loot to get rid of its most expensive component they're looking to potentially. Remove. A lot of the internal memory storage. And use the cloud to deliver content to the phone. Yeah which dovetails a little bit with some mobile me rumors that also came out. In the wall street journal of course. That about Apple potentially turning mobile me -- to the -- entertainment and media hub where you maintain your digital music and video libraries. Which would fit with them finally getting off their Duff and doing something with a lot I purchased -- I mean it makes sense that that might be what they're working on but I can't say. I don't know I've been around -- this before but I feel like the iPhone nano rumor makes no sense to me and -- I bull market is moving toward bigger more expensive phones and nobody seems to be putting on the -- The only thing that -- that they could find success is that they could deliver and up to par iPhone experience on a much cheaper price point like a -- -- -- 99 and people know okay. People know whether they want the big debate in an iPhone everyone is familiar enough with that -- -- get a small one like for your kids I think real life that's not gonna that doesn't. Want now wants an iPhone but it needs and the money I think there is a market there's always been a market for cheaper phone whether it's an. IPhone or Android and Apple doesn't -- cheaper. Think that the -- and I apologize to the editor it with a cheap graduate but you can sometimes get like a free Android -- with -- -- with a contract now I think it's for them like this it -- an -- on him not to one -- on the phone. And is the same thing with that with the -- nano at the time it was a cheaper iPod. Is it cheaper and smaller iPod -- evident had a different use -- threat it was like you to take that cheaper I mean I have that -- -- go to the -- with it -- teeny tiny -- group that can manipulate. If the use case is smart phone and an Apple IOS I mean I get it could be that they're tiny -- in the hands of everyone but what functionality with a potentially lose. I mean that at -- -- why -- -- -- doesn't -- -- the idea of Apple doing something cheaper just to get into that segment of the market that's not -- segment. A net debt as sort of silly. Feeling more like -- like -- -- I feel more than anything is just all about a marketshare thing. Yeah it dead like that that there would be the motivation for them to do it more than anything. Because you know now wields a mean it could go with me hasn't done it really curious -- -- what's gonna happen I don't think. But it is and if anything pretty persistent rumor and also AT&T and the tech news seems to be. Freaking out a little bit more everyday about hidden at the Verizon iPhone situation even though there we're not necessarily lines at the store. And -- mean keyboard snapping them up on Internet. Now AT&T is offering 1000. Free minutes. To iPhone users. Defending them texts. Thanking them for being loyal customers. And operate them 1000 free year old -- -- Alia that view is reply. Likens -- I was an iPhone owner from the very beginning even I was an ETT user before the iPhone. I have now receive their messages you have not I'm a parent can do it without saying yeah I have to get a message you can just send the word yes you. 1101130. Through zero. For all you listening NN that nearly I think we'll have that in the coming -- -- on -- better at that -- -- -- the senate letter -- tax that. The word yes to that number and then get your -- thousand -- I'm you know what I'm glad AT&T is finally stepping up because now all the -- they're offering unlimited. Unlimited data for a few for a few users and elves and we got a thousand minutes while. Oh that's right -- Verizon iPhone in they decided to do things they could've done a long time I don't think yeah I think you call that too little tunes with too little too late. Also -- diving and okay it's Tuesday it truly -- me. Not -- -- will -- at the pronoun you ramble a tiny bit to wallow to soak in the irony. Of AT&T offering -- -- within -- voice -- Do the people who are switching to Verizon because they can't make -- -- home while I. -- -- -- -- That's hilarious -- after admitted don't email me all I know the new you have -- -- -- your angry words assay and IRA that is that really honestly we have to tell you that the bulk of the big tech news today luckily for you know and because that gives us more time. -- We're gonna take a big regularly come back some Valentine -- stories as well as our special guest and our big time love advice for you. And powerful it's. -- Welcome back the buzz I love everybody on our special Valentine's Day -- addition join us we have a special guest in a few moments. Doctor Wendy Walsh. Author and writer of the boyfriend tests and the girlfriend test and also she's working on in new book about love and technology we will get there in a moment but first. Let's get to the stories where love and technology. -- -- -- Inserts that he can make anything then come -- Group irony that they and Abbott OK -- I knew that he was thinking it appeal to ethnic. Group -- -- are freaking out there are revolting over ideal on FTD flowers although I will say. People you know -- he knew the -- opening. Seriously. They both crappy like domestic -- roses really need to -- and 420 dollars. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- anyway. -- was offering twenty dollars off of forty dollars worth of flowers and gifts from FTV dot com. Users then about apparently 3300 people bought the coupon because nobody knows that tedious attempt. Went there and and found that the prices on the ftp flowers were higher. On -- special group on flight that they were on the regular site. The -- and FTV dot com slash group line. You would find flowers you'd find crappy domestic roses priced at 69 dollars for example. Whereas if you Internet TV dot com you'd find those crappy domestic roses -- reporting that out yet ended and mark them up the amount of the discount. So basically did the discount with forty dollars off a forty dollar for the flowers but because a group ponds discount was priced higher as a three -- only saving ten dollars. So while that's also mindful that people worked. -- -- And -- -- mean again did you guys think that nobody has a plan that -- -- the Internet would -- opened two tabs open. And compare prices. And then -- also noted that bus service and shipping charges and as you near the biggest problem -- TV like they are ridiculous the shipping temperature. Deleted them vouchers value completely even if you were able to find a comparable price and then other people found that the -- is we're going to be delivered. A -- February 15. They -- -- to get there on time. Group on an -- in -- the feedback closed the deal a day early that it was too big headache -- our customers and that's not how we treat people like they actually -- the -- the end of the -- -- you know this is one of those things were -- -- -- trying to like build a brand build an image when you have things like this this doesn't help them they -- -- had to snafus they have tasteless Super -- lives. I don't know if he -- -- -- -- -- -- and -- -- have a thing where after you generate the momentum or whatever came out of those who provides the you have a deal like this. But just falls flat on it's face again doesn't look good because then people that have never used group on ever before associate with would do is -- the Internet deals. -- meanwhile you have living social again all that Amazon love. And look at group -- -- now we -- -- Don't give tricky to -- We have -- look at news in the world -- -- actually. It's not Kevin Rose dating gothic it is OK cupid. Looking up -- -- dot -- owl. It actually happened earlier this month from Ask.com apparently -- the place where fifty million dollars. But OK -- the reason OK cupid is so popular is that for one thing its pre. That's not come yet to pay to use and then it's more kind of social networking needs though it actually because -- little recommendation engine link you can review people only when outlet. And then if they actually garner all of -- data as they asked you these really veto question is and then they put out. Little report and yes so it's like -- pull out little surveys which we will get you don't worry about it that. Quizzes blogs but it does I mean it really is the dating site for even more tech savvy people wanna have fun with that's it -- -- like dating partners but now people are really worried. About what's gonna happen to that state -- out about match dot com spot them because they range from everything from just like -- -- kids. To questions about -- drug use in the U. Sexual practices like you can mark answers as private and make them inaccessible makes sure that -- -- it but yes by -- their public. And now like -- -- that's one thing because I chose to trust OK cupid. But now I'm a little worried about match dot com to match dot com reserves the right to share personally identifiable information with other -- businesses that interactive art. And that includes Ask.com. Let's search and and the Daily Beast college humor city search -- spark which is a marketing. Site -- markedly market like tool bars and current birthers and emoticons like crap you know one. I'm a little editorial and heat. And it's fine I like aloha it's. Better bring back some of that -- -- -- -- -- -- I did is tightly covered macadamia that there are over here they would get the opening of the life cycle it. Not really -- another good other organ how to act so it to die anyway -- you -- a little concerned about but to give you an idea of someone like the data that. Okay -- in -- which we appreciate so much so. They'll throw out you know based on what people -- in days -- throughout these surveys but. Here we go this is -- one of the most important things you guys wanna know men and women but probably more like guys -- -- the best this is this is from -- cupid and from all the didn't mind. If you want to know for example in your head. Will my -- have sex on the first date. And -- questioned -- asked. The single best predictor if he or she will have sex on the first state is. Do you like the taste of the -- -- through. It's of the data they said then that for whatever reason isn't the single most. Highly correlated. They like to be like it needs to -- here you are also very likely in their info graphic showing would you consider sleeping with some on the first -- that they had. Every one and those who like the taste of beer those who like the taste of -- ranked the highest -- -- And there's all kinds of other questions. But there but they -- if they like. There's a range of questions that might -- that answer but my nagging -- a second date that they they -- Credit they try to correlate not just the actual questions the questions that are -- -- and a birthday as opposed to like. You know in a certain light -- nuclear war be exciting. -- like if she says yes. You are likely to have -- on the first date however. It's not that likely that there will be a second. If you want to know do you Mike -- I have long term potential some -- -- -- -- include do you like horror movies. Have you ever traveled around another country alone and or wouldn't it be fun to chuck it all goes live on a -- -- that's a great way to show someone -- careless and -- in adventurism and really you would never do that. Via you know month you know how -- hunt I'm not yet final -- data is as -- Iraq is that the chat -- data is marvelous. It's good the bad about it -- -- -- -- is a little scary -- whatever bank. It's really awesome its costs down. Even then -- late summer dusty old rule -- Our old buddy wolf from -- from alpha -- from awful album and really -- thing when -- me being told him tong was there and now aren't. And you. -- -- -- -- dead -- dead I had left what has happened there's apparently and I don't like you like that. Did you don't even have a -- -- your -- you're you're not sunburn in your bright red right now Molly. What is going on here. What is the point. Anyway we'll -- -- Have gotten into the act with twelve of the year and it Valentine's Day Easter egg question -- -- and enthusiasts. Will feel like a -- Map based sort of if you type in previous search engine that gives you like all of these numerical -- references like it's the Google for numbers. But even better yes. But now -- -- They have -- district -- you type -- will you be my Valentine. Then will you -- on certain you'll be mine especially if you like Valentine who's proficient computational knowledge. This one if you type in what the world needs now -- from alpha response. Is not alone. So we the. Instant home and OK if you type in are you in -- you'll get the response yes I love the Internet. So you know just go play with bit -- keep their -- problem and their they're pretty adorable -- Any type in what is low enough and whether they all did. Baby don't miss off of -- -- -- positive emotion of -- and section of the kind humans sometimes expressed towards one another and computational knowledge engine expressed towards the Internet. That I've been. All the idea that baby don't hurt me down here anymore but I and according to the phone when it what is. -- cute. Good job will be your normal and also if you guys are looking to find out in a lot of people runs of the hottest sites these devices that are out there and they think. It might increase their game. Well here's here's a new likes that's from retrieve -- They're showing their from the Mountain State team's study you know. If you had like in iphones -- -- -- cool laptop. Or reading a book he's an iPad does that make that person. More likely to be -- that or is it are they more attractive to -- so. And it said it basically this is of the -- -- well if men saw a girl using a cool iPhone they were 50% more interested in her. And ankle laptop 46% more adjusted it now. A reading a book still means something these days 42% guys -- Soviets did the women -- more 30% but the -- in line it's. Clearly it's not about the -- it's what's behind the book. If you're reading about. In a bikini and yet they're -- -- Britain using an iPad and not so cool 36% for males 29% for being an iPad still -- a high Kennedy and actor L itself it really does up there in the world via. -- and then I'm sorry but for all you artists. If your pain or dry and that actually scored in the lowest numbers for men and women in attractiveness and I mean it's yet they're like with -- and if you have an iPhone you've got money away you have if your -- you're trying don't c'mon. No -- it's intellectually -- absorbed -- something -- QVC they got a guy like -- -- the beautiful building at -- as it's like a free contingent. It hasn't -- out -- -- along -- the goes over -- years now most of them are art students. -- -- -- There's play their -- stay here okay just I've said they -- and they're all about the email me you know you're going down I am we've just lost. Dedicated loyal viewer -- just -- -- the -- -- in. Where's the yellow -- -- very interesting and that was not Arial a higher right. The interesting thing though is that it doesn't correlate right like what I find attractive intact -- not the theme for women and girls not that interested in people who are using -- -- only 38%. Of -- that they would be interested in attracted to someone at -- laptop 36% that they feel the same way about a cool phone. Only 29% -- an iPad would be attractive. Which is actually less than the people who like the books and also though I gotta say that that one that's the most interesting is they deal breaker chart. I'm naming it. The big it really seriously I've. Please pay attention to this chart really obvious that basically be number one and -- -- deal breakers on the list. Our Bluetooth headsets. No surprise there us and a phone holster. I'll get rid of the holster. That's all I who doesn't and I went on out -- and Italy. I mean we've echoing the thoughts anyone who wears a Bluetooth headset and public and is not even on a call button like they're eating dinner and they got the little blue light the gap that is a -- tool and edit delete all your partner are you an idea and I think I'm glad nearly 700 people wear them in the -- -- -- All -- are you serious. Can we just put an end -- Bluetooth -- like I don't even care if they're safer like come up with a new technology -- know ole buddy. Looks cool in a Bluetooth and -- period. Now I have to I have to do disclaimer on my mama she has like kind of -- curly like a little like little -- Asian Afro -- going on. And she wears -- -- I didn't even realize it and one day we were out and there's a blue light blinking through her hair. And I'm like what is that this is like. -- -- -- -- like take it off. -- -- -- You know this is a bit like it's -- bears in my mom wears a Bluetooth headsets the -- cool ending. But I -- I -- -- more and -- and -- tool that's that's horrible okay China also whether I was surprised that tattoos and piercings were so -- that -- -- Depends on where they are you know what now advocates with content and development -- -- that but I -- -- -- -- you know -- world. Let's -- Bruno Mars. Yes to world of winked at and skinny tag and note -- world public dirty hair and -- -- the ashes and transcend. Although they can sometimes -- varied interest. Are right we're -- chances -- we sold you have a special guests seated ladies so patiently forest. Doctor Wendy -- author of the boyfriend test in the open test the PST in clinical psychology and specializes in human attachment don't we all now. And she knows about. But he's currently writing a book about technology relates to call love ver 2.0 again -- love version 2.0. And Andy kind of like leverage 2.0 love it and you guys can call her on FaceBook -- when he lost and also owner Twitter at doctor when he lost missing Wendy. Thank you for joining us are so today doctor -- can now how. Can you have Brent on theory they may play I don't have. And I don't have any of them out of Wendy the thing that write up about the wanna talking about is we know attack is here tech is taken over our lives and so many ways but. From what you've seen. How is tech really changed the whole dating relationship seen them. There are acting like they're really two major areas has infiltrated and content -- shift in how we. Date may -- we -- and the earth is just provides. It's and lots of opportunity. To meet someone you know if you -- a hundred years ago you're gonna marry somebody who live within one mile radius of EU. And she might have been. -- -- best friend's cousin and when I'm on their she was what was left -- right so now we have a -- And find anybody anywhere in the world and we can actually use our romantic projections to the -- -- it. The problem is it's create -- -- ADD and attention deficit disorder where we won't get very few young people are spending the time. To -- intimacy and in all the concert commitment well because their eighteen people waiting for them on match dot com another twenty on their FaceBook page and they just got a new tweet from somebody. So that's the danger that I opportunity but it creates a kind of -- ADD. And because eaten it looks just like the world of choices in the grocery store right you can't it's -- it's hard to commit. When you think it's like it's hard to commit to a Friday night plan if you think better and employment among when he -- -- look at my FaceBook profile when you mention those numbers. -- -- Oh -- so it's not you've basically stock -- iPad. Usually does that -- -- and now hello Wendy and. There -- another big thing them and that is that. Well you know we created -- technology so we keep keep in touch actually not touching anything very tender. So the digital world digital communication. Has. May not have the lack -- -- Text is about the same -- imagine what an emotional content of the tax. It's about this thing was listening to your favorite and without the drummer or the vocalist. That's really what Jonathan. We communicate we're getting we're getting -- content information from -- blankets from eye contact from -- out. So -- end -- -- so. Tax is what a joke I reduce our -- dangerous. -- -- -- -- Ways I -- -- -- I mean I think it. That there's a whole new world of communication and we actually house and emails to the sit back in and one of the problems right is that you're getting these. Messages that are text only a lot of times and the meaning can be stripped out -- them. -- In fact -- we haven't yet like the government and rules are growing love technology but remember -- is actually that. -- have to. Outnumber all in them -- they're trying to have a real relationship you gotta pick up the loan and down the digit lead got to meet. You can't be just in its relationship has not who won a penthouse. I don't seriously you know I got a lot of credit out. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Eating is that when. What's actually happening is like -- People living out their own personal -- -- but they're two separate relationships. With their own projects it's not reality. No doctor -- when you talk about living -- your fantasy is one thing that you know everyone here can probably -- and and you know. There's there's a lot of sexting going on and does now not not for my phone I mean you can -- look at all my -- -- -- Before I don't have them but -- is that. You we've all we -- you know people always been -- reference -- men are emotionally like dysfunctional a lot of times and as this almost. Pile -- the fact that now they're using this as a tool that our men and women -- them procure like sexually abused and nothing like beyond that. Anywhere in a place where people are trying desperately hard to separate sexual -- from the emotional act and so they're using technology to do that but in truth. Effects on people -- builds relationships you can be in denial. And plenty of guys by the way they don't have that -- it's arsenic that female bonding hormone that gets released when they have orgasms but women do. So -- women say to me. Me call me back and sports acts as a nation he's coming back. Her body is -- -- and she also we after. That women are you know I'm a big feminist of course I'm here and I have the freedom to say what I wanna say because of feminism and very indebted to you it. But the problem is we are certainly far from eat while. And women are wired differently and you remember that will do -- -- list that she came out with the member of the chick who graduate and a power. It's on top used during the well you know I've read it I saw a lot of -- association. You know she was really behaving exactly -- might. And that's not a woman strongest power women have a lot of other powers of learning how to -- and an used to be that he can't -- In emotional -- but I think women have sort -- stopped working and then wonder why they end -- in my top isn't years.
