Buzz Out Loud 1326: Coming soon to WP7: Passive Aggressive Birds (podcast)
On today's show, we take a look at all the Windows Phone 7 news, all the phones, and the sad little battle between Microsoft and Rovio (makers of Angry Birds). Also, more talk about the Verizon iPhone--including the rumor that the rumored phone won't go 4G for at least another few years. Plus, self-driving cars will save us all. --Molly

Boston: I want my streaming!
We were sitting around the office on Friday converting Binary into numbers for NAT usage when I realized that one of our numbers was 101010 (October 10, 2010). Well, when I converted it over it came out to be 42. Interesting because this is the “Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything”. I just thought this was very interesting and I wonder if someone thought of the question to this answer yet. And unless my math is wrong this won't happen again in our lifetimes.
I’m a long time listener and 1st time writer. I’m surprised that a new TiVo update was released ( at least on the Premiere) and nobody has said a peep about it. I looked all over the interwebs and didn’t see anybody comment on this… Am I the only one??? In this update they kinda reverted back to the old TiVo look and is super snappy! I’m unaware if they activated core #2, as some said they would, but it doesn’t seem like it needs it. I’m hoping Molly has gotten to play with it because she made it pretty clear she wasn’t a happy camper with 14.4. Lets see if this will make her wear her “happy camper” badge because my premiere is making me wear mine. Well as many people say… LOVE THE SHOW!!!

If you really believe WP7 has a chance, look at the disadvantages so far;
No system-wide file manager
Limited third-party apps
No Bluetooth file transfers
No USB mass storage mode
No memory card support
No copy paste
Too dependent on Zune software for computer file management and syncing
No Flash or Silverlight support in the web browser
No sign of free Bing maps Navigation so far
