The Buzz Report
Buzz Report: Dance, ladies, dance!Internet videos should not have to resort to hot, dancing women in order to get viewers. (But, uh, we have some!)
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hi I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the Buzz Report. This week, hot dancing girls and you just stopped listening but you're gonna have to wait. The Gadget of the Week is first. The Gadget of the Week is the new Samsung Blackjack 2. Samsung and AT&T announced the new Windows mobile Smartphone this week and it's actually pretty cool looking. For one thing it's got built in GPS which I predict will soon be the must have feature of the phone world; other than Wi-Fi which the Blackjack 2 does not have. But it does have a much better battery life and it now comes in a lovely burgundy. Personally I think it looks like a cool phone, but I would have preferred a more updated name. I mean Blackjack is just not really the cool game anymore. Texas Hold'em maybe, but that's pretty 2006. Sudoku, Brainage, oh what am I thinking? They should have called it The Crapulous [assumed spelling]. And now for the news. This week My Space launched its first original series exclusively on My Space.com. The show is called Roommates. And here's a little taste. >> I'd like you to meet Violet. She's our web inspection expert. >> Hey oh my God she's not [inaudible]. >> Bill, up, run. >> Living in a house with these girls is gonna be wild and sexy and. [ talking in background ] >> I think we should cool down, light a candle and I think we should have a girls' night end. >> Are you kidding me with this? That's your show--a collection of stupid women fulfilling stupid female stereotypes and/or fantasies? Would it kill My Space to do a show about like guys living together? [ Laughter in background ] >> Guys, guys. Let's just all relax and light a candle. >> See now I would watch that. In other big Tech news this week Comcast is busted for actively interfering with file sharing activities on its network. Now Comcast says it didn't block downloads from BitTorrent, Sizer, or other file sharing networks, but anonymous executives do say they did fillet downloads to prevent bandwidth hogs from slowing things down for everyone. The problem is other reports say that this practice is affecting legitimate programs like Lotus Notes which can be used to share files in offices; and it's just sketchy business anyway because it means Comcast is messing with its own network and discriminating against some kinds of traffic, and that my friends is exactly what net neutrality advocates have been waiting for a major ISP to do. See those fans say that if Telcos [assumed spelling] were allowed to cheer the Internet they would discriminate against certain kinds of network or shape traffic on their own networks. So pretty much Comcast just handed them the smoking gun they've been waiting for and the incident is likely to reignite the entire neutrality debate which it pretty much almost died down because there wasn't any good example of a big ISP acting in an untrustworthy fashion. So to sum up, Comcast is not invited to the tiered Internet Christmas party. And finally, let's have a look at what's plugging the tubes. This week, it's Dancing Girls. The hottest videos on You Tube this week are Mel B dancing the Somba on Dancing with the Stars. ^M00:02:59 [ Music ] ^M00:03:09 >> And something labeled as ridiculously hot Cuban girl dancing. Okay, okay, that is enough. What is this, My Space? I'm Molly Wood and this has been the Buzz Report. Thanks for watching. ^M00:03:24 [ Music ] ^M00:03:29 >> Oh and by the way in other Dancing with the Stars news, Mark Cuban got the boot. Guess a billion dollars can't buy your moves.
