Buzz to Yahoo: Take the deal

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the Buzz Report. This week Microsoft is still wooing Yahoo, Politics is in the tube and hackers attack the iPhone, but first it's The Gadget of the Week. The Gadget of the Week is the Nokia N96. That's right. The most feature-packed phone in the known universe now has a successor that packs in just a couple more features. The camera gets a flash, the internal storage goes from about 150-megabytes to 16-gigabytes, plus there's a microSD card slot that can take an additional 2 gigs and you can see from the video that it looks pretty cool. >> First of all the design is new. We've got a sleeker interface here and you've got a larger screen 2.8 inches. You can slide it up this way and you get your dial pad as usual and you can also slide it down this way and get your media keys here. >> Hang on a second. Is that Kent German back there? [beep] Wow! If I'd known that Kent wasn't to get so bored hanging out with the GSMA Show in Barcelona, Spain, I would definitely have volunteered to take his place. And now for the news, happy Valentines Day! This week Microsoft is still stocking Yahoo, which is kind of acting like an ex-prom queen with fading looks, just playing hard to get. Earlier this week Yahoo rejected Microsoft's take over attempt, but Microsoft won't go away and basically said that Yahoo isn't gonna do much better. Meanwhile, Yahoo's thinking maybe News Corp might be a better suitor. You know the kind with the cooler car. But, Yahoo honey, can we talk in the bathroom for a second just us girls? Ok honey, I'm not trying to bring you down but, you're not getting any younger. It might be time to settle. I mean, Microsoft can take care of you. It's smart -- smart to ask for a bigger ring, but you should take the ring. >> Yeah girl, take the ring. >> In other news today, the 17 year old hacker who was among the first to unlock the iPhone has unlocked the iPhone again. George Hotz cracked the latest iPhone firmware in a marathon 24-hour hacking session, even though other hackers have been trying for weeks to breakthrough the latest Apple firmware update. Do that kid is a prodigy? Apple, are you watching this? You should seriously hire him or you know just unlock the damn phone. ^M00:02:13 [ Sound effects ] ^M00:02:16 >> And now it's time to find out what's clogging the tubes. Politics, still. This week everyone's watching the Yes We Can video by Will.i.am, where all these famous people sing along with the Barack Obama speech. ^M00:02:28 [ Music ] ^M00:02:37 >> But a lot of other people are watching this parroty of that video called John.he.is. ^M00:02:43 [ Music ] ^M00:03:07 >> Hah! Yeah! 10,000 -- that ended sad. Okay then. I'm Molly Wood and this has been the Buzz Report. Thanks for watching. ^M00:03:16 [ Music ]
