Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1471: Spoiler alert: Sony hacked againMultiple rage-fits on today's show, as we discuss poor Sony's PlayStation Network being hacked again, patent trolls going after the entire app store market, the Winklevoss twins taking their hurt feelings all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, and sweet...
Today is Wednesday may eighteenth 2011 -- -- The Beatles and Brian's song I am Molly Wood luck in a buzz out loud cnet's podcast of indeterminate length it's episode 14171. Where I just learned. That's thanks for the pre show and a little bit bigger delaying during the after the show up in that golden crew is considered good luck. In -- And we think it there isn't a good low. To get -- good luck charm charm city during a brief show we do a lot of things the guys have to come out to all -- check it out and -- dot cnet.com. Marshall supposed to start at 1030 but that's actually will decrease just hurts the other presets -- at the 1030 or and sometimes we spent fifteen minutes -- they're talking about -- its tests. It's the way we do it it just happens. Anyway the golden through. It's -- thing and there's a big one on a building in Tokyo now you -- And that's your trivia for today and I've seen it in person it's -- president. Japan is read about a lot of things. -- yeah oh yeah yeah I really might be read about the gold improved but they were definitely right not to allow the PlayStation network to come back online and then another are usable occurred here. A big turn a big giant need giant Sony hackers have taken a big giant -- on Sony's efforts to turn back on the PlayStation Howard because apparently. The platform has been hacked yet again according to multiple reports. Yeah this is less than two days after Sony started bringing it back online and what happens is. The hackers were able to acquire a lot of -- data are email information. But when you re going to their website through Sony's website you can you know it. Entrance and information to retrieve your passer and there are a lot of web sites that ask for things like your email your birthday -- so happens that. Hackers don't have that information yet -- -- these hackers are using that information to then potentially have the ability to reset. Your information and recent change the email address of your account and get back -- Europeans and network -- that is beautiful. That is beautiful awesome. Apparently if you I know it's like I think good cure is worse than the disease -- -- -- -- fix everything on the back in the didn't fix the system of how to retrieve your password. And a bit about the so they kept -- president and even worse how to reset it. -- they had to take down the login page that lets you reset your password. And now if it's gone and they say. Unfortunately Sony commented on the takedown of the log in type thing unfortunately this also means that those of you were still trying to change their password via PlayStation. Will be unable to do so. For the time being I think it's because of essential maintenance -- actually not passing up to the -- about multiple security researchers say that they've been able to demonstrate -- been able to reproduce it. That they think there's you know it's a real beyond a shadow of a doubt. To me it's not even -- they just didn't change their password retrieval authorization system via. That's what it is because hackers have the data yet they have the data and they're able to -- that. Yeah if you change your email address when you re gained access to the PlayStation -- states PlayStation network last time you're most likely say from the exploit although I'm sure that very few people that. Because what they're able to do is put in like we said your email address and then -- the password retrieval information. If you left your account email the same you may have been vulnerable police before Sony take analog and. Yes so this is if you go to Sony I went to Sony's website and tried to -- with my profile is completely down right now. Right so they just have that we are sorry for an inconvenience but shut down for use -- maintenance. Fix it. Test thick Erie and -- you called it when Japan was like were still not happy and satisfied with what you've done. -- -- I'd obviously depended know this was still there but they were -- careful to have to say we we don't really trust this right now again to show us. Show me what to working with before we put everything online -- Japan. I'd I'd really don't I mean maybe it's not -- the us government doesn't have that kind of authority to just be like no no no no no you're not turn -- -- back. And -- Sony was like -- restore for the but really. I can't believe that there were significant concerns that all of the ducks may not be in a row and Sony flipped the switch and -- back on. Because this just. Now they're basically starting all over again and indeed create date turn back the network without realizing the premise that. These hackers had all the data that was. Still in the system -- so they're saying it -- lake. So you have huge breach people break in and they steal a ton of personal information about users and then you put up a log in reset page that requires -- requires users we relies on users entering the exact same personal information that was stolen in a massive data -- so that that they can change their password and regain access to -- -- -- they count page and has the credit card information and it never occurred to them that hackers might -- also like piggyback on that little process. -- deep they can -- a little extra blood from maps don't. -- -- I think Sony should change that -- this little slogan catch -- because right now it says it only does everything it only does offline. Down the hall with the threat to its. Bad. The security researchers. Are. Suggesting that everyone regardless if they have been affected or not. Create a new password whenever that -- -- -- comes back up. And change their account email to one they don't use anywhere else and will not be sharing with anyone else for additional security and or. Just dump heckled him through and get -- All or nothing about it to say forever either but our -- and -- if you love uncharted two and a variety of a Sony games they'll play yourself -- -- and basic and do it but maybe just do not put your credit card information I mean I think at this point it really is just incumbent on people to like be as. Careful as they can rightly. If it's if it's. A network like that -- where it's a big database of information but it's not your bank site. Then assume that it's a really high target for hackers and it might not be as well protected and just use a one time throwaway email address and use -- you know. A pay as you go or by those little gift cards instead putting your credit card information. Yet just to be -- guys the it's the authentication email page that allows a hacker to potentially retrieve your password information re gain access your account that's what is down it's. Just the log -- site that is used to reset passwords and so the bad part about that is that right now you can't join in reset your password or your reseller -- email or -- may not to do that. Exactly so that's gonna be a problem considering that your password -- What hackers may already be -- An earlier -- -- -- an early before this is revealed see its Chief Executive Officer Howard Stringer. And recently talked about how their online service was attacked and you can describe it as a -- -- in the road to the network them to a network computer. Movement is that nobody system -- -- like painfully ironic in retrospect nobody system -- -- 100% secure he says. This is -- this is probably about a day or two before it. This was revealed long the most and fail though is having a -- -- bad. They're opposed to going to be a way to there -- gonna be the whipping boy for the. -- on -- then Sony like everybody and as this Bloomberg story points out is trying to link. That -- create one of those sort of cloud based. Gadget ecosystems where they Ice-T V is mobile devices and computers all linked to the Sony entertainment content. All through the Internet all as part of the cloud like they're trying to create a sort of cloud based content and device ecosystem like everybody's going to and now they've got this huge. Huge a huge. I turn in the room but yes I know -- entertainment have allowed this quarter is -- didn't more than a little rough for Sony. Well I've always been curious to see who's going to be the next big player that's really gonna be able to compete head to head with Apple we've talked about Amazon Microsoft and Sony mean really the three big players -- potentially do that but with this debacle it really is it really turns off consumers even want to trust them or use them as an alternative really helps out. If Amazon does -- something like this in the future if Microsoft which which has -- ecosystem as well that are really going -- it works in those two companies favor and against Sony. I'll tell you but it also works -- -- but one that's waiting in the wings a pink on my desk and mr. burns it is excellent -- -- The Samsung is also trying to create that device ecosystem they've got the Samsung TV this Smartphone software all their apps are trying to roll out of -- the services. Like they're trying to become the next Sony and if I order a conspiracy there's do they were totally amendment act is getting totally -- that -- biggest jump ever. Just a joke. They definitely weren't but they probably do benefit in or -- or nobody benefits of everybody's like out of the -- -- amount to carry out. We have a little audio video to show you. Shortly because Microsoft's founder Bill Gates says that he advocated. The Skype takeover. And we thought we would I hear from him in his own words -- Steve directly proposal together doesn't. Makes sense for Microsoft by over eight billion dollars for a company -- product Skype which. In essence is that is a free Internet phone system which -- of the moment on -- profit. I'm which was valued did something like three times lasts only two years ago but does that make any sense to you. Absolutely I was that strong proponent. At -- record level for that the deal being done I think it's a great great deal for Skype I think it's a great deal from Microsoft. Data and video conferencing. Is going to get -- much better than it is today. -- Skype actually does get a fair bit of up revenue. -- selected as an annual -- when you -- -- titan at a purchase price the operating business is a fairly good business. An opportunity to take out. Brought consumer and community. Connected about the future of what they keep the -- will be how corporate communications works -- it'll it'll be fascinating to see. How that brilliant -- is -- -- Microsoft research coming together with Skype but what they can make about. I agree with him that it's an awesome deal for Skype. But you don't -- about you only an idea part let you know whats gonna set me when you see him talking like that today. He's doing bigger even bigger world social change things. They need is bringing back at Microsoft they do need is -- and his vision on his vision is as always -- Bill Gates is the guy who. Who had the idea for IP TV ten years ago and nobody was talking about that at the -- -- was Oliver tablets fifteen or twenty years ago. He just has never been able to really. Leave the company in a way that can translate that stuff directly to the consumer without like Microsoft getting in its own way his hugely visionary. So I think from the purely technical standpoint he is thinking like hell yes. I mean the idea of having Skype in being able to integrate that into windows and connect and all the things that we talked about the potential and having an embedded into windows phone. Is like. I mean that make sense from a technical perspective. It will they screwed up -- We will we will see. But he did say he was strong opponent at the board level for the deal being done and now -- you know -- a few years before they actually did that and even know that had to help push -- It definitely -- -- a point between the -- you had bet that if anything shows that the board -- like. Are you serious bar that -- thing ever and then bill would like EP. But -- really still hasn't been that. We talked about video -- -- seen. -- and I was an elementary school they would talk about how the UConn team was the way we're gonna communicate in the future moon there's still has never really been a standard that has brought -- altogether -- And if Microsoft and Skype can pull it off. -- -- I would be amazing. I agree with gates I think there's a ton of potential there really do -- think it it it's hard to imagine -- it makes sense but it because it's so much money and because you don't know Microsoft is gonna do with -- but. Skype could potentially touch and power just about everything that Microsoft built in now if they if they do it right. Those little windows phone seven phones are still around that'll hit in a few years they were saying. -- -- -- -- About how it five years the windows phone seven will be the number of windows phone will -- the number two operating system will see -- -- the meanwhile it's a good news from Microsoft day. Because apparently Microsoft customer satisfaction. Is at -- new highway mainly due to Windows 7 which people. Love the end -- it is and this is a good thing now this doesn't really. Translated to sales but you've gotta start somewhere and people are happily pay it if people are happy with your product that's a good thing but. The you know what the whole Windows Vista Windows Vista debacle. Not hurt them a lot -- -- I I think windows Windows 7 is a solid product. -- -- I really like Windows 7 actually I wish it booted up faster. Still even on like -- Solid state drive machine but -- it is a really very solid operating system so there an American consumer satisfaction index was down to 69. In 2008 out of a hundred point scale. And it has satisfaction makes -- software has reached a new peak of 78 now it's the third straight year of gains for Microsoft and index although as Brian pointed out. It doesn't mean. That they're selling more software as particularly. Windows which has -- surprisingly Microsoft Office revenues up despite the attempts by Google docs nanotech -- eat away at that market. But the windows division fell 4% last quarter. Mainly because they they they speculate. Windows PC sales fell victim to the rise of the -- the rise of the tablets also I think honestly because most netbooks have -- -- them. I think a lot of people bot net books and and tablet so -- -- -- whole like market -- have really low power machines but those low power machines were all running XP. So that it in their hands on more went -- Also results from that same American -- customer satisfaction index AT&T and T-Mobile. Customer satisfaction. Is on the decline. According to group AT&T'S mobility. Their score. Was 66 out of a possible 100 dropping 4% year over year -- -- -- was their lowest -- been. Since 2005 -- -- 62. In the study its high over the last eight years with anyone that thing that's more disturbing about this. Is that. -- company that runs these surveys say typically. Once a merger happens the customer. Satisfaction drops but in this situation both T-Mobile and AT&T. Has already dropped -- before the merger has even happened. It's like they're going into it riding a wave of ill will -- T-Mobile saw its score drop by 4% year over year to land at seventy. They have up. Not that they're saying assuming that the deal is approved at all it remains to be seen if a much larger AT&T can regain the strength of its customer relationships AT&T in response. The continues to say. That customers that -- doesn't matter as long as they are still customers. Seriously that's their argument they say that -- rates is more important -- the rate at which people actually leave AT&T. Is more important to them than customer satisfaction and so they feel like you know all. They're basically and this is. If you've ever had any dealings with AT&T I'm sure you're very familiar with this attitude which is like you have the -- of the Ke -- and early care -- up here. You know it AT&T'S Damon is reflective of when they say -- churn rate matters more than customer satisfaction that is the iPhone conditions. Because before it was on. Verizon and people haven't really left Verizon in droves they went to AT&T to get the iPhone yet but they weren't happy that they were -- AT&T right there's still on the iPhone. There's still upgrading their locked in their contract for about another year sold six months here and if they don't like AT&T'S deal. It is absolutely hilarious to me that AT&T would attempt to portray. Being locked into a contract. As customer loyalty. That it what I find so I. Horrible about their -- -- They're turned metric which they actually character. As customer loyalty I mean. You could also say it's extortion. Because they would have to pay hundreds of dollars to leave AT&T but they prefer to characterize it as customer loyalty. So. -- it also ahead of getting from that Spain. In good news for Verizon and Sprint Nextel they lead the way among major carriers -- scores -- 72 Wednesday Verizon -- Dipped to 1% while Sprint's was up 3% year over year. And a whopping sixteen points over it's a low in 2008 so sprint has really. Made huge gains. With their unlimited did is that there -- unlimited data plan idea that -- -- -- that's a that's a big deal well they have that hall evo four G was the first four -- -- And they are the cheapest all you can eat plan basically -- they have that everything planets like 69 dollars it -- -- Crazy T. Also I wonder how much some of this is just it is literally just the psychology of the marketplace right this second -- can't really see sprint that the hero because there. Against the merger and nobody wants the -- -- happens -- there like anti AT&T and T-Mobile. And again at the end of the day this is just comes out of satisfaction it doesn't necessarily translate into dollars and because Sprint's you know third fourth I don't know where they rank right now but. The report though the carriers are out there yeah. In fact -- -- there are customers are really happy doesn't mean they're making. The same amount of money that AT&T and this is all about. Links and you conveniently means not only mode then fleeing. Is that -- I -- break. And trust the -- of the kids that get released by Aileen Xena -- -- -- right out of control. Literally come back patent trolls -- Lar new MacBook -- to fill me with buyer's regret. -- -- The best it would have been anything and we. Welcome back to buzz out loud -- -- the -- -- Bollywood. Never mind as we apologize following IOS and dvds of -- -- we really apologize because if you are here on the live chat. That happens -- in the show. Basically the -- of the live chat genie who deserves nothing but the utmost respect. And give us nothing but love road in the chat room. I hate that -- that. We apologize to Jeanine we apologize. You the listeners we apologize for hurting your. Feel. Yeah and it's not -- -- would be a good case and the -- I doubt I'll. I -- more stories government. If you're familiar with how -- in his. Taken off its -- needed to be mobile app world more app developers are being sued over patent. Planes this time this is from macros saw -- -- the US based company that is -- ten app development companies claiming they've infringed on patents seven. Eight QQ they -- six which is -- titles as assist them. And method for data management specifically covers the collection. And transmission of data for questionnaires now earlier you might have been earlier this week -- this which is another company. Was -- who recently personal portfolio of patents started -- -- app developers as well because there -- using an in app process that they said they had the pad to. They aren't suing Google or Apple explicitly targeting each individual developer. And then and this I mean. Setting aside the awesome ness of the fact that you can patent a method for basically collecting and transmitting data for questionnaires and putting them online 1003. In 2003. And the discussion and specifically -- related to hand held computers. So the -- that has now been extended to include Smartphones a category that did not exist when this patent was filed. All of that set aside there. This is where Apple and Google should seriously stop -- with their own little patent fights and and start helping out because this is a hugely chilling effect you -- for the entire app market because -- -- saying that this you know Jim McGill the chairman of macro solve the patent -- company I mean company. I don't know what else they do but. Let's not I I guess I won't call names he has said that the patent covers thousands. Of exit existing apps that collected and send it to a central server and also the company has chosen to -- the app developers and of course the rocket docket. Jurisdiction of the Texas eastern district in Tyler where patent companies -- patent owning companies frequently file cases in the expectation that the courts and process them quickly. And in their -- -- classic troll material. Huge chilling effect for Apple to donors. That shows how the C that's as of anecdotal how low macro macros salt is going to go it's the -- -- court they're only suing companies in that jurisdiction -- that recently got. Exclusively -- -- it's not Apple's legal department. According to sources is looking at the claims by lots is because lots is really is the first coming out we've seen that is targeting specific app developers. So we don't know Apple's also looking -- looking at what -- assault is now doing I'm sure -- clearly the big companies have to addresses. And good idea find out what they need to shut this stuff. I mean anyone who is trying to make their their name on an app market like the app ecosystem is the most knots of course -- -- the story points out the guardian story. That it points to Smartphones as being basically that market is the new hunting ground for patent trolls which of course that is because it's. Super vibrant market right now so trolls come out of the woodwork and tried Alex scam money off the accurately articles on a -- But that they write this is where you -- you -- the back -- -- Yeah they're more like -- -- -- fish. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But it is it is the -- it's the kind of signal basically stop app development in its track event at every app developers like I am sorry -- too afraid to develop any kind of app because there's some troll out there. With patent. Who's gonna charge me money like. The economics -- -- are already know he's gonna considering the -- have to give up like 30% of your proceeds to Apple that. I think Apple will probably spearhead. Attempts to knock these lawsuits down Google should get on board as well and also can. I am sorry I am not trying to -- -- that one nice guy who wrote to us about patent office but really. The case that let -- this quote from the guardian. The case is highlighted a problem with the US patent office which has already been criticized for awarding patents that are too broad or even cover impossible inventions such as anti gravity vehicles and did you hear about Disney tried to trademark. Seal team six. Today it's. After seal team six took out a summit and on actual the name of the African navy seal military team that to gotta solve kidney attempted to trademark seal team six I -- -- battle Hollywood reporter -- -- and -- and -- I can't I'm ready Michaels or ownership but this is the year linked to it that's just absolute. -- -- You'll hear more absolute incidentally any come into the course for our favorite friends of the Eagles lost winds don't remember the guys -- guys -- So that they created FaceBook in Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea on the Harvard on Harvard's campus. They're taking FaceBook or planning to take FaceBook to Supreme Court. The antenna file position with the US Supreme Court asking the higher court to hear their case against FaceBook and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg now they've been. Turn down. Three times already -- Because they've appealed the fact that they did not know or FaceBook did not give them their true valuation when they are awarded. -- 65 million dollars 65 billion dollars was based on the valuation at that time that they felt was inaccurate. Now actually they say that that valuation is worth a hundred million dollars. The one that they were originally awarded to those bits on the valuation at the time so to be a perfectly accurate possible -- deficit not a hundred million dollar judgment. But they want the US supreme court's. Which I assume is not doing anything else. To go ahead in weigh in on this case. Where they've been struck down three. Times and the last guys time the I -- what it what that -- three strikes you're out you're out. And backed the US ninth circuit court judge who ruled on it last time last month said. This past just stop. The judge said it last month ruling at some point to quell it at some point litigation must come to an end. Said the judge that point has now been reached but it has not. Because it did this puzzle what also the -- drives me crazy rate. You can pretty much pushed things all the top as long as you have the money to which these guys do it there it's not -- They are well -- before even this whole FaceBook -- it wasn't like you know. They came off -- you know. -- don't -- the back Alley or anything like that they were well to the already. And so they're unit you know they're positioned has enabled them to continue to throw this in the court and try and try and try and you know what we're gonna have it -- -- regardless Supreme Court I'm sure there's a lot of less important things going on there. I'm sure I'm not gonna let -- look at. -- docket and -- -- fine take some time later today look at the current US Supreme Court docket some of the things that they they might be working on there in the Supreme Court. -- loved the ruling that overturned in -- segregation in schools and gave equal rights everyone you know the they should definitely is should help not evil rich white plates. That's a cool to have their feelings hurt. And 65 to 100 million dollars in their pockets. Oh I'm sorry they had to split that between the two of them. Portland and I bat -- -- spent that much and 32 point five is an -- and -- and I'm so sorry. Go away go away even though they could break me over their -- I don't care -- Ultimately like six. 65.

Also let's look at the -- Lilly doesn't make -- that bad because full exhausting appeared. -- -- poverty is actually but am Microsoft reports that apparently one out of every fourteen programs. -- -- it downloaded by windows users turned out to be malicious.

Someone anyone know. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- times reporting that new MacBook Air models will be shipping in potentially June or July are launching in June and July. And they will include Intel's sandy bridge processors and thunderbolt high speed interconnect excited of what. BT has been -- parties they were gonna buy an air until they have an about area. Yet there are there at Cambridge it's -- leverage other rumblings that they were coming in June or July that this is another piece of the puzzle that. In -- confirmed that if they're going only production is mark this maintenance shipping now. Takes about you know twenty days to -- icy will be here it would be -- -- -- to you which is a disease that pretty infuriating -- standard for them. It isn't that -- of the PC market -- general a year.

Okay. So it does so if I like wanna upgrade if I buy my Samsung theories nine in the Simpson through ten comes as just another winner of laptop like it's -- or whatever but it's not. It now I I guess I think we're what they would -- plants -- -- less -- I buy my -- of -- five years ago still works I'm just -- for the next. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Okay now I agreed the whole planned obsolescence here without a doubt. Apple's now also according to -- -- times their source claims that the -- enabled iPhone that we've been looking for is unlikely to launch until 2012. The time is really locked in with the supplier chain -- the components are so they've over the past year and a half they've had a lot of stories are pretty much been on the money for the most part so. -- like they say -- Apple's likely to deal deal label launched the 2012 for the LT phone. Saying that the industry as long it's got to about it also the main thing is that the chip. For LTE chip right now that's in current phones is too large to fit in the form factor that the current iPhone apps so that's as from a design perspective can also they talk about production of what is now being quoted caller claimed to be called the iPhone four -- Well to begin production in August early -- be in September which is what people insane so this next iPhone non LTE. But does. -- got a little -- and a half. I -- that he got a house like three years. To -- in the. You're nothing in life. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The media. Buys it in a blip on the -- including amnesty -- you. This facility to other ways to reduce -- -- designed part of it this actually we. When it beastie but if we agreed on everything below -- named lame -- Google is rolling out its awesome super -- fiber network to not just Kansas City, Kansas but they are in fact going to pop the river. And bring it to Kansas City, Missouri also which is another 450000. People and a pretty good size town college town in fact oh yeah about to get some seriously -- and turn it. While the epicenter there are yesterday we didn't did you be -- about -- Netflix is the number one use of bandwidth in North America you -- But I -- I'm nothing -- not only during peak times but -- number one overall idea yet as he -- on Netflix on them and a lot and have clicked on also the mayor of Kansas City, Missouri says. That as a result of the announcement Kansas City has become the most attractive city are on the planet entrepreneurs. I don't you know but that's a little that's. Sometimes you know government officials aping the word of the day that hyperbole. -- the look at it it acts. It's just like plastic man up and now. Think also in cells she says they don't need arm for their mobile chip platform. Mr. Paul Alton -- Alton will ultimately -- mean -- -- Levy Otellini. Something ravioli can pursue that times -- -- -- is he rejected the idea. The fact that it's a licensed -- -- -- -- their annual investor event in Santa Clara California we know that Intel's really been trying to push to get into the mobile market arms. Technologists -- -- up with their you know their power and efficiency. So Intel did say though that their new chips for their tablets code -- oak trail will be used in more than 35 upcoming tablets and hybrid computer devices including Fujitsu Lenovo. Yet Intel not going to switch of it would be like a kick in the balls. If they were like you know -- guys -- not good enough to make processors for mobile device. Said he's pretty bad although I have to say that at this point they have invent the right now is really best in the mobile market eventually see what they do then. The Hulu for magazines project that we talked about last week that is now available for. IPad the next issue media thing where they got the ten magazines are all available -- encryption on the iPad. Is now also coming to the Android market and has opened up the Android -- and so thank goodness you can finally get Esquire popular mechanics fitness and parents. And the New Yorker fortune and time. On your Android device as well. There is one little -- -- there's picked up not think there's one little thing here though that's kind of a catch in order for you to get download this app. You have to be a galaxy owner that's bought a Galaxy Tab model with the wireless service from Verizon -- when you look -- the third bullet point.
