In today's news, Rafe is offended by the lazy criminals who just use Facebook to find out when people aren't home. Also, Nokia gets a new CEO who's apparently a "fine steward;" but is he a visionary? Especially with Android coming up fast? Also, Adobe brings back its Flash-to-iPhone app development tool.

I’m hearing lots of trash talking about Ping and frankly I think people are not using it the right way. As has been mentioned countless times on the show we have plenty of social networks do we really need another one!!???
Ping is not a social network – it’s a music discovery tool. When you sign up for Ping find some friends, (yes – that part could be easier), follow music journalists you respect, or even selected musicians who don’t use their social networks to always sell their latest release (if you insist on following artists stick to Facebook or Twitter).
Now each time you sign into iTunes just see what your friends have been interested in listening to or buying. It’s an online dialogue about music from people you respect.
If you look at Ping as if you were browsing your friends record collection I think you’ll get a lot more out of it.
Back to the music.
To the Buzz Crew,
I want to say thank you for saving me about 200 dollars. I am a marketing major at Slippery Rock University in PA and currently enrolled in an e-commerce class. The book that we need runs about 200 bucks would be worthless for me to buy it. Listing to your podcast for the past 3 years has made me knowledgeable and up to date to the point that the book is useless for me to purchase. With all of the discussion about online businesses successes and failures I am able to hold a conversation with my proffessor about current events and also pass the tests pretty easily. So thank you buzz crew for saving me some cash so I can buy other super overly prices expensive books and software
Keep up the good work, no seriously keep doing a good job my grade depends on it.
I can’t spell either. But fuchsia does start with f-u-c. So, point to Jason.
