Buzz Out Loud
Ep. 1352: Never forget ... that you actually own these songsThe Internet is profoundly underwhelmed by Apple's announcement that the Beatles catalog will now be available on iTunes. The more germane question, really: where the heck is iOS 4.2? Also, turns out the Kinect (unlike Apple's Beatle announcement) is...
This -- in November 16. Please send. And the need to resolve Simon forgettable grandson I am Molly loaded it's incredible. That'd buzz out loud -- doesn't really overlay and -- again a little other team -- to it and expert data believe for edible news from Apple today. -- on iTunes but I so -- -- CNET yesterday. -- -- -- Hope that's not collar work -- and I really hope that the only thing that there I really hope it's not true that -- -- they're going to announce tomorrow after all of that was simply. -- -- nineteen I really hope. It's more than that for -- For -- it's so sad at The Beatles are now and I can. Let sued three years later and you -- a you know how late it is. The original buzz out loud crew that was here two thirds of them are no longer on the show us how -- how old long it took for the announcement allowing it. I've -- announcement to come out so long in fact that most of -- I mean. For sure about the people who -- one of The Beatles catalog in MP3 -- purchased it on CD or in that USB drive but it fit inside the Apple and then. Have been on their computer or borrowed their friends copying Zander at dead or whatever or found other methods and the pot very possibly the largest demographic of iTunes shoppers. -- never even heard The Beatles yeah. Like I even they don't care about them I -- said the current generation ID try to sell the current generation on rock band Beatles. -- one of their worst selling rock band titles ever rock band Beatles -- yeah wow yeah. Yet it's I I I it's kind of -- -- the Internet take that was remarkable like about the commentary lengthy on off from PC mag wrote. I blame Apple only disparate logo company would have the hubris to make any event out of a press release. Yes seriously this is they paragraph blog announcement that Apple tried to turn into a mini event by promising us yesterday to -- -- just another game. That you never forgets. Can do then and then every you know I just got -- yeah and I didn't. Apple just win a lawsuit against the recording company Apple -- at -- open the beatles' records. They they came to any length of the data can get settlement about maybe this whole thing was just like a -- product them. Man I'm an -- It's just so. That so -- I don't wanna talk about it but I don't slowly bracelet the people will let the people can peek in any segment that I like to come. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Was that the canary at a little the -- And nick this was retreated back someone -- follow and -- that. I'll never forget the day I can finally buy something I already own in a format I already have from a -- I don't buy -- from. Out shrubbery it's named -- department one of cnet's own senate. Apple to PR kids Apple PR two kids now we have The Beatles The Who know The Beatles. Plastic -- made by any. And then Stephen Platt that if you play Apple's -- announcement backwards it says I -- -- don't know how to download music illegally. Or I would argue this for perfect -- And those are your top three about The Beatles iTunes that more than says how people feel about this'll I think really the the definite silent while Internet -- you really feel about The Beatles and -- Yes that's leg -- and other news there Microsoft -- some things in the game in world. Connect is officially -- hit. With a one million units sold in just ten days. Good that -- 150 dollar most control that we talked about in you know some attack sites -- giving them giving it lukewarm reviews but like I said. It's not about what the gamer sites who are hardcore gamers care about this is all about the means -- consumer what they tell their friends and clearly. It's resonated and a I -- I'd I didn't expect one -- and that is very surprising out -- though I gotta say that the that's totally -- he called it. Right off the bat like what his you know your bottom line and can actually let it on and now it is and it's a 150 but -- -- really think that the price point. Make the big difference for people because -- something new that they haven't been able to have on the Xbox support at it kind of like extends the excitement factor. On that console and it doesn't compliment and an even in the equal now that they have access to -- guys they're really trying to work out how to use these cameras and other things they were to show and a demo or someone. -- the connect camera and other talk about being able to manipulate photos -- with your hands. Like a digital photo with their hands using the connect sensors -- -- movie next artful like it it does say in the tech is hot it's the tech of hot. At that and that comes industry like hacking factor is. A whole other -- how many people bought it Jeff Hackett and opening -- -- -- -- yeah Microsoft is expecting. To sell five million units by an a year it's only ten days Christmas season. Black -- season. I think they gonna do it pick silent -- -- installed it's like 45 million put it on my Amazon wishlists allotment on Clinton and with connect them mean I have it but. I think I'm going -- -- -- -- -- and it is -- absolutely it's. I this to me this holiday season now just became a faceoff between the PS3. Neither has any mistakes in Manhattan like -- no -- and all of no love no love for IB HD. It's like Ph.D. it's -- three. I. DA what how and how it -- -- and Xbox we sixty. -- read that. PS Eliot's verses connect. Like who is gonna get who would buy if -- and it. They got that the PS3 with going to be a big seller. This polity -- and it looks like -- and now it's gonna it's gonna bring -- -- Other top news before we take a break it's official AT&T T-Mobile and Verizon are launching their mobile commerce network finally. We -- catching up. With Japan and yet so instantly on mobile wallet -- Isn't CNET sprint. Is an on board you would think that that the good thing about this though is the fact that three of the carriers actually decided to come together. That helps us the consumer now. Also another thing about this is that over and you'll definitely then now see phones in the next -- coming out with an FC chips in -- near field communicate digits without a doubt that's going to be. A standard feature with phones -- on the future now all these carriers yeah. It's -- and the goal is to make mobile -- -- -- united and the preferred method of payment for consumer point of sale transactions though. I'm very -- by and -- -- just like the phone yeah I was able back all the way in 2000 into 1000 Japan. I was able before us here it's you know -- a cover story and we used. Are you know we used herself when as -- -- karaoke joints at AM PMs at restaurants at arcades and it's amazing how seamless it is -- a lot of people one of the concerns that people -- opting in battle -- what about the security on these things bull alleys in Japan you actually have a fingerprint scanner. That scans or fingerprint before you're authorized to use it in a transaction -- So. There there's all of the company -- which is the national mobile commerce network that powering all of this says our plan. Is to create a mobile wallet that ultimately eliminates the need for consumers to carry cash credit and debit cards reward cards -- ticket and transit pass can you imagine the only thing you're ready carrier and you're I mean it felt like. Demolition and act like its vision of the future is -- awesome stuff this is the moment when. If you just started to happen on -- -- -- that's -- yeah yeah. Yeah -- gotta keep. Good reference. And that now it. We're gonna take a break and wallow and often that was that -- -- -- when we come back Eric Schmidt that it might just after that news. Molly Wood and practically inviting you to join us for the 2010 edition of cnet's holiday help -- that happens every Monday at 1 PM Pacific 4 PM eastern starting November 22.

Holiday help desk Mondays at 1 PM Pacific time starting November 22 at cnet.com slash live. In his -- you know right now so that's it will be again will be here Mondays Mondays Mondays. Monday -- Monday and Monday if I Eric Schmidt was speaking at the web 2.0 conference and you did a little -- -- is actually -- usual for a CEO appearing in public. First of all not very surprising news he says. I'm not worried at all about Facebook's new messaging Dili and it has been -- -- The kind of generic statement more competition is always good it makes the market larger bring it on. But I gotta say. Oh there at least you're going to war. And what and part of the reason is -- These are gonna like Eric Schmidt also showed off the -- I am off the rails today like I just can't are you are used as the -- and -- I'm pretty glad about that little beetles and it's just like for an even worse. I have -- page you'd in my head. All -- my head which is frankly no way to live. -- idols sing it or home or not -- not so you will keep that atlases -- little. Nine nine. Eric Schmidt showed off a -- at. Nexus One if -- Q and now nexus at that the web two -- -- summit. And it was running gingerbread which is the hopefully integrated version of Mandarin like you take everything and put down one nice happy packaged. Although presumably that package will need this on the nexus at that which you said -- reason gingerbread would be out in the next few weeks. Yet so running on T-Mobile and another thing kind of just what we if we go back -- these stories in the phone itself also have an FC chip in it. Oh this is -- yes so. That's just another indicator of how things -- -- Maria absolutely this will be the phone. Now also at at the web and I don't -- -- by the way via Tivo season gadgets are good at can you hear me now but at. -- -- -- Eric Schmidt talked about. How Android and Chrome are gonna differentiate themselves from each other and in a question posed by reporter he basically said that Android is going to be used Arnold touch platforms. And the Chrome OS is gonna be used ports with keyboard so obviously your laptop OS and maybe. May -- a desktop -- let's but. See why it. Yeah you know what I I'm just kind of confuse that. The -- -- cattle which is running the Android alas -- he didn't address the fact that. They were working on any sort of differentiated tablet alas it is different from. The phone -- yeah. Which should be at least less than trying to say that Android is not yet optimize for tablet but how would it not be if it's meant to be detects. Screen OS does Billy gates speaking about the real thing are -- coming off the rails -- that. Android -- -- I don't I mean it with with just as comets in the way what he said. They don't -- no he didn't give any kind of clear definition of what direction they're heading they don't even know what they're doing -- -- -- -- have them well they certainly -- that all on the Chrome OS was going to be in netbook operating systems and that's not it's not particularly -- see that he's saying. That it is meant for keyboard except that. Now that tablet. Are are looking like the obvious successor to -- We thought or there was some indication that they were moving Chrome OS in the direction also becoming tablet OS and there have been rumors that they weaving in and do. Their own Google tablet would come my assignment and so then this idea that the kind of still thing. It's based on -- earth for keyboard like. I will then why is it better wife an -- better for tablet a and then be okay. That. And be the same and your candidate and -- Hey most frustrating about undated Ryan went a little okay but that's the thing -- question about the galaxy tab is that when use that you don't feel like it's any different experience and well. The devices cotton but the actual usability in the OS it's the same as on your phone -- into all the way -- you know you just don't feel via an interesting. I and other news app from Google before we move on Google's dislodge something called hot pot. -- -- A name it's impossible thank you just once they hot I. I I love hot you know what are the little restaurant and the withdrawal those ingredients and -- milling -- when you come out of the restaurant is more and that prevalent. Anyway. Hot pot is. Kind of it's like an overlay on Google places that gives you reviews and ratings from you and your friends -- it actually gives you recommendations based on. What your friends have reviewed. Assuming that they're using Google. To do -- right. And this is also another -- -- -- when you wanna talk about fragmentation. So hot pot. Is actually entirely different. Then Google places it's also separate from your buzz layer on Google Maps and it's also separate from Google Latitude. But it's still have to do with location where you are. And how you review things and you have to create a separate profile and friends list from what you already have as part of your Google account through Google profiler buzz -- Gmail and -- you get all new hot pot thing. They need to work on just -- -- Visit -- can Google loves ago -- Google is releasing these things we like to get their hands of a popular look at here located on -- we got four hot pots. We need to put a middle. It's is confusing yet need to -- other ingredients and put him in one big -- the top of that. And also get control of -- This -- it does start to go like that is there this is the theme -- Google it like it -- kind of happy chaos right where it is that all about good ideas and it's not. They're not so off -- -- -- And that melting them together and executing kind of cohesive. Products. If anything under it is like the poster child at a -- now. I love and Internet campaign. Especially when -- campaign is about something is near and dear to my own heart which is the part where the -- wants -- either the -- naked or feel appeared junk. They like to called an enhanced -- -- -- the enhanced pat down the pilots' -- the airline pilot through union referred to it as basically the grope your junk. Law anyway bit there's this John Tyner I don't know if you read -- -- -- -- -- -- -- blog post about how he had refused to go through the full body scanner. And and with port to go through an enhanced pat answer to -- that I refuse that I refused. I'm not going to allow you to touch my job that you touch my -- Javier -- yet it that it sexual assault and the fact that you're wearing gloves that'll TSA that does not mean it's not -- -- and he refused to -- and now. It's kind of -- Viral yet and so venture beat dot com as raising the question could the Internet bring down the new -- -- -- -- That's because the awareness of what it's done he also. Had his phone recording during the entire time yeah now he was asked them he's been on interviewed on the news and asked him if he deliberately. Turned on his phone -- that's -- -- he just said that. He wanted to record the event so that the conversation. Would be word for word actors of what happened instead of him trying to retell the events and he just knew he didn't wanna go to them the detectors scan. And that he if anything. You have to go to this process and it would become -- tape and so it's on the Internet there's on several of his video links and -- -- the commerce station Al one point he said. He asked the person or that TSA. Security person I don't understand how sexual assault to -- made it on and on amid a condition of my client them. They said this is not a sexual assault and he replied it would be if you -- the government. Exactly and the which is exactly what it is I mean at this point so if you add it all up brightly have been working on a column in my head about it you've got the guy the head of British Airways saying. Look the US security rules are ludicrous they're unbelievable the difficult to enforce overseas and their. Security theater -- they've been -- many times. There are serious warnings from University of California researchers about the radiation risks of those full body scanners. Never mind the fact that they show a picture of you naked that is then stored on servers remember locally that could easily be hacked and it's very detailed and it's very detailed so in -- -- -- -- through that and -- if you don't want that to happen you have to submit to an utterly invasive. Personnel searched. That doesn't include though there was one whole other blogger wrote a thing about how it doesn't include a body cavity search -- -- out -- that's not really even gonna though. It's this. It's become now it's now to the point where there it there appears to be at least online a traveler mutiny. There's this the one group has declared November 24 the name for Thanksgiving to be a national opt out -- Where everybody says Amanda I'm not -- -- -- -- it's not I don't believe -- state announcing the good idea and by the way am standing from direct and thing. You can't strip search me. Art you know beat the hand equivalent and it plus I'm sorry I think -- unconstitutional and search. I don't what is the probable cause like I would like I. I wanted -- from a constitutional scholar what is the probable cause that allows them to submit American citizens to this answer because we are constitutionally protected from unreasonable search and I recently went to -- a phone they were not. Do -- you know not all airports have officially -- this procedure out. Yeah at them yet not everywhere thing and about 385. Different scanning -- the airport John Tyner was in this San Diego I believe. Is where he's from soda and who knows if you're gonna come across this if -- -- Let us know -- -- what you did also if if everybody actually I mean. There are already saying that the new security features are gonna make it a nightmare for travel on the TRY anyway and then -- opt out thing happened also. Well I don't know I've been treating at the White House went out like that because unacceptable and -- -- -- to put -- they haven't they haven't addressed that up to my knowledge but now think -- now. -- slim limo. I think those you know but but -- happen again but this actual thing act is gonna do is probably not that people bring their own. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That's got eight outlets and they're not gonna stop any of the enhanced pat down or the -- body scanning they're just gonna they can't bring your phone definitely like a -- things that I open my phone -- a place that they cannot get you know I'm might opt out of going to be it deriving. Like airlines need to get on board that actually is the libertarians -- -- know furiously now anyway. Anyway let's go let's get back and -- -- -- -- -- -- an email we're just watch it wears watches he was the Internet can actually -- Now what we're also watching is what some of the Blackberry Playbook. And there's a video out on the on the Internet that compares -- video performance with the iPad it's loading time as well that's last performance. And it it does at the moment it looks impressive it's a lot faster loading pages the inner activity of flash web sites. Is available and you can you can watch -- there on the link on our show notes. But one thing that is always suspect for suspect for me is -- fact that this thing is still coming out -- when he eleven they have yet to give us an official. Official release date it's -- -- basically the latest a tech freaks. Dream inside it it -- like dual core process seen. 1080. 1080. It's -- screaming machine. But by the time it comes out whatever does what's -- what else. And of Yahoo! and and it's not an air conditioning and to go up against the iPad apparently except in this video that it -- -- I have to admit that when you watch it in his video go up against the -- you like it and yet. I'm thinking that pretty -- And a although it still is unicorn with -- skillful -- you have total 100%. I shall we move line from the hard news to the quick -- look Al. You and threaten. That's part of the sound effect that I'm the -- -- and I -- -- -- -- -- yeah. Apparently even related the new guerrillas album. When it comes out is going to be produced entirely. On an iPad and what I like to call the guerrillas. -- PR extent of the or or Apple -- the guerrillas to do it and have had so haven -- and he's pretty -- it on the iPad. It tried talk about how it's more than a consumption device. I think is that the total -- yeah it's also I think it's still kind of cool that is decides that it's like now everything that's. Done with the iPad is like a total -- -- look at that picture that Apple does do the mock up for them. That's totally that -- and -- -- -- he is. Actually actually no it unfortunately we did that a let's get paid at the picture -- it's a writer. Well then well Diana. Diet that -- but anyway -- -- drilled album game I think it's you know at the thing about at the end of the day no one really cares what device you made it on. It has better sound good. Let activist and then you bit them massive sellout at this point if they Munich and help them had so much to tell you it's either gonna have to be off. This album or it's gonna be forever known of that and he felt about the horribly mean if -- play if you create a song like -- happy with flu like bong bong and bang bang bang. And I look at one might my favorite but but given that that happened but I don't think -- comment is what they can get black at. -- -- the Black Eyed Peas and just take a cut song from the eighties and then has put a little bead on it is our capital on top of it. They need to video killed the radio star and now I hate it. There now there Apple if they do -- doesn't mean that off has been palpable and botnets listed. Colin how money hundred -- Since when handed think IQPs and they'll call -- number as may have happened is probably an. -- that I guess those along -- the neglected -- right. So the next one we're getting a little faster -- is going to be announcing -- -- Samsung announces global enabled TVs coming sometime in January. I'm excited yeah. That I -- policy -- is how this product of all's I don't -- TV gets better and better Newton. An exclusive -- and now I'm I'm keeping it cricket I injury. Word EM -- I'll go skating answering to you or whatever that -- and 100 sold out. That's why you tolkien's the -- and you -- the player. -- and it could rename gadget Valdez four inch Android let. All our integrity you and 1080. 2011. -- -- -- amber -- -- line. Also an eight megapixel camera in addition to 1080. 119 minute battery life. But -- you keep it plugged in constantly it's gonna -- thing. Eight megapixels eight minutes but I'd -- split -- math book they say exactly FaceBook messages who also gets office integration. I don't know if Google's well this is also little suspect because it's that -- -- -- -- -- your documents from Microsoft. Directly into Facebook's messaging platform like no group. The Google. -- why -- -- -- such a thing. Anyways that's what's common and those are equally. On few reviews today no gadget segment we do have a review we waited to check out over at cnet.com we gotta look at -- Barnes & Noble nook. Cutler. In the video. That -- the DJs Aaron. I think -- cool this is great so David -- breakdown is basically for those of you looking for color. This fits exactly in there and that's exactly what can we can instantly first heard about it yeah. It's like a little baby iPad and -- and he also really appreciate that little hook on the side but you can put -- on it to personalize it -- units at that -- -- -- able to cellphone charms and panic on the keypad all of us like Flickr like nobody here it -- the Internet but that Apple knows into the English. Indeed yeah. Anyway I think -- -- -- fixing it did get or sadness and the president got like the excellent rating because there's that question of isn't a total -- yeah. Anyway -- -- there is an interesting. You know he never now grandma might want this one for an the biggest thing. I mean subtle but big zippy performance than earlier note and a -- -- this one zippy via the -- but only an hour battery. I am very. -- and our -- that that's the thing that's the tradeoff is the way she science news. You know who's news -- my cool. You see a cardiologist at -- field hospital -- England will tomorrow apparently try to perform the world's first heart procedure using a robotic arm. Paired with an advanced 3-D mapping program. And then -- -- in 63 year old patient with atrial fibrillation. Wow that's that's a lot remote control. -- EB. Heart surgery so on the procedures surgeon inserts -- -- catheters into the heart that directs energy. The the parts of the heart -- your opinion thereby burning the -- tissue and disconnecting. That -- all in 3-D robotics. Yeah very easy I think that's isn't I think that here he did actually he he performed her remote catheter completion of an -- -- And just subscribe and actually burned tissue. What he's gonna do with that that it will be slightly different thing. -- RD Dan -- successfully. And then this will just be and new procedure in. Perhaps lesser amber -- Lester for crying out loud it's spelled like tester. That I could've been worse. I got -- at all like Chester the molester. Oh that's the TSA attendant at the -- -- -- and all up on me. -- had actually on that note. It's a good time where are happy and happy and -- Now a letter according to -- done over in the UK commissioned by the UK TV channel okay but we'll see how on -- -- 11%. -- people have had sex with someone. They met on FaceBook yet met. And -- on basically they said 46% of circle of so of these people polled 2000 adults male and female 46% of some illicit text. There it by -- included nude photos of themselves and -- as someone other than their partner but probably the best more entry -- and in the part of a little more intriguing stats 10% have had sex with a coworker. 50%. Of those while at O Eric. All good. It was a study that they connected for the revamped British airing of sex rehab with doctor drew. It's with collateral it was needed. 46%. And illicit text that someone other than their partner Matt I gotta say like I I upon hearing this news now controlled -- these things are endless and and clearly I have branded all the wrong people. -- -- -- And that net the last the last line of the story of what do you think have you ever made that sent -- little friend requests. 11% that's actually. -- maybe a little.
