The Buzz Report: Now with Chrome plating

Culture
>> Now from the number one on-air and online information source for the digital age. ^M00:00:06 [ Music ] ^M00:00:11 >> Hi, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the Buzz Report. This week, Chrome arrives, rocking out with Apple and science rap. But first, it's The Gadget of the Week. The Gadget of the Week is the Nikon D90. Due out sometime this month, the D90 is the first digital SLR that takes video. In fact, it takes HD video, 24 frames per second, 1280 by 720 video. DSLR that takes video and the body only package will be under a thousand dollars. Ring me up. And now for the news. As you've almost certainly heard by now, Google has a new product out called Chrome. Let's take a look. >> In a world, where people are crying out for change, a revolution for computing has arrived. It's a product that answers the desperate pleas of people everywhere who need a new beginning, a new way to live, a new browser. >> We'll miss you Dunlop Fontain [presumed spelling]. Anyway, yes, a new browser, yey! And by most accounts including mine, Chrome is fast, sleek and not even remotely ready to replace Firefox for daily use, but some pun to say the browser worse have been reignited by the appearance of Chrome. And indeed thank goodness we've got another option. It was downright pathetic before with only Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Flocks, Slim Browsers, IE variants like Avant, Su, MaxThon, which is apparently huge in China, to name a few. There is also OmniWeb for Mac, if it still download Netscape Navigator 9. There's Firefox variants like Torpark. Anyway, you see what I'm saying. We were desperate for some choices. Well, I guess if you're a Mac, you are desperate for choices, but there's no Chrome for Mac, so keep up the desperate crying out for change I guess -- good luck. In other news, Apple has invited the media to an event in San Francisco on Tuesday, September 9. The invite said, "Let's Rock." As a result, it's widely believed that Apple will announce new versions of the iPod including possibly the thinnest iPod Nano ever and a new iPod Touch. You guys don't know anything. Dollars to Donuts is Steve's big reveal of the Apple high-fi 2.0 -- yeah. Take it to the bank. Also this week, a man named Stephen Haywood offered up a live stream of his wife giving birth to the couple's child on uStream.TV. We have yet to confirm later reports that after Stephen's wife recovered from the worst she'd ever felt in her life and the physical and emotional ordeal that many have described as akin to running a marathon, she'd beat Stephen to death with a diaper genie. And now let's have a look at what's Clogging The Tubes. This week is the Large Hadron Collider rap. Kate McAlpine and Will Barras are tearing up the YouTube with this rap video about the Large Hadron Collider, which comes online next week and will according to the rap make discoveries that will rock your mind. ^M00:03:17 [ Music ] ^M00:03:36 >> Huh, funny, cute and educational. In fact, I wish it weren't quite so educational because now I can't make jokes about the LHC destroying the world by accidentally creating a black hole that sucks in the entire universe in the reverse of the Big Bang because I know better now. Stupid science. And that's it for this week's show, I'm Molly Wood and this has been the Buzz Report. Thank you for watching. ^M00:03:58 [ Music ]
