Buzz Out Loud 940: The legend of black fart

Rafe coins a new term for a port of the iFart application to a BlackBerry. But really the show is much more about variable pricing coming to iTunes, The Pirate Bay rolling out VPN for you, and robot soccer teams one day killing us all.

Drops of Water on Mars - “…superheated exhaust [from NASA's Phoenix spacecraft]… splashed small bits of mud onto the craft’s landing struts -- little beads of material that grew, merged, and even dripped over the next few weeks. Those dynamic blobs must have been drops of concentrated saltwater, concludes a large scientific team led by Nilton Renno, a Phoenix investigator at the University of Michigan….”

Hey Buzz Out Loud Gang,

This is Silas from SoCal, and I just wanted to let you know that there is more than one high school robotics team which listens to your podcast! I am a Junior at La Canada High and the Drive Captain for team 2429. This was only are second year competing; however, in our first year we won the Rookie All Star Award and went to nationals in Atlanta, Georgia. This year we tried to win the Chairman’s Award, but our relatively young age as a team held us back. Maybe next year

Our whole team listens to BOL as we work on our robot after school everyday, and I must say, we were all very shocked to hear another team listening. So in the spirit of “gracious professionalism” GO RUSH 27 and 2429!

love the show,

Silas the Pyro

P.S. If you read this on the show, we will put a sticker for “Buzz Out Loud” on our robot and send in a picture!


First off I would like to say you guys are the first podcast that I have listened to(and I am 16) and you at this point seem to be the best I would say so far. So thank you for supplying something interesting while doing my homework. Also the tangent of a circle is the point where a line intersect or touches a circle. So yeah I hope this wasn't to stupid of an e-mail. XD
