It's not your regular Buzz Outloud today. From New York City, Wilson G. Tang, Jeff Bakalar, Dan Ackerman and Rex Brian (AKA Scott Stein) take over, and needless to say it's a very different BOL. In this topsy-turvy world, Google's Dr. Eric Schmidt is forced out as CEO. HP joins the fray by rearranging its board of directors with four new members, including former California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman. Verizon files suit against the FCC for rules they proposed, and no, the iPad 2 won't be getting the Retina Display--much to our dismay.

Hello All you Wonderful People!
Just a note about the girl who fell in the fountain: I used to work at this mall (Berkshire Mall, Reading PA) and this same mall had a huge protest concerning a mother nursing her child on a public bench. A mother notified security about the public display of nourishment and security asked the nursing mother to kindly cover up at the request of the offended mother. The nursing mom threw a fit because she had her rights. The next day there was a large protest outside and the security officers (some friends of mine) we’re suspended and later fired. I was told that security was no longer allowed to approach any customer unless they were doing something obviously illegal. Perhaps that is why no one came to the girl’s help.

Hey Buzz Crew,
In episode 1390, you guys talked about Apple’s Pentalobe screws going into the iPhone 5. This wouldn’t be Apple’s first device to have them, because apparently, the new MacBook Air has them too. However, there is a fix! There is a kit that will allow to open the computer and access the battery.
Love the Show!
