The Twin Titans of Tit{censored} (Damned SOPA!)

Culture
Hey, everyone, I�m B.C. in for Molly Wood who�s out on jury duty, even though she told the judge she considers sneezing a hanging offense. That didn�t get her excused, so some poor bastard�s sitting at the defendant�s table in a pool of sweat...wondering if he�ll get the death penalty or a personalized Molly Rant...and wondering which would be worse. First, the Gadget of the Week. The Gadget of the Week are the twin titans of titillation from The duelling 55� OLED TV�s from LG and Samsung. The LG won our best of show award but both made people stare and grin like they just saw a three-breasted stripper. The image quality coming off these guys was good enough to make you hate whatever�s on your wall now, but the the best part was round the side yard, where the cases are as little 1/6th of an inch thick! Yes, at CES 55� OLED made the biggest impact and when the LG arrives in Q3 it may do the same to you checking account at an expected price of around $8 grand. I�m in. Now the news. The SOPA blackout is happening as we�re on set today, with sites like Wikipedia, Reddit and Mozilla going dark for a day in protest of the proposed law that would use some pretty heavy handed tactics to shut down alleged pirates outside the jurisdiction of U.S. laws and do so in ways that seem to have few if any of the checks and balances afforded by due process. I don�t know, I don�t download pirated movies can�t imagine it would affect me. Right? Bill Gates is ending malaria...and Apple is ending scoliosis. As we tape today we�re awaiting an announcement from Apple that is expected to to be one of the biggest moves to digitize textbooks, relieving kids of 40 pound backpacks full of books with 40 year old information: The irony here is that Steve Jobs was the guy who said whats wrong with education can�t be fixed by technology! Jerry Yang has departed Yahoo! where he stubbornly held on to the title of Chief Yahoo!, even after the 90�s ended. Now that he has a lot of time and lot of money on his hands, it begs for a special lightning round of... Cliche Things Tech Big Wigs Do Next #5: Build a new home with a studio so they can jam with John Perry Barlow. #4: Join a V.C. firm and stroke their chin. #3: Launch an incubator and inflict the next Sean Parker on is. #2 Start a rocket ship company. #1 Do nothing as big as the first thing they did. Please, Jerry, break the mold. And finally, the Zappos site got hacked this week, exposing some 24M users records, probably to some shoe fetishist who is also an IT admin who gets off on scale. Not only is the Zappos culture a little funky, but so was their response: They shut down phone support and went all email...they set up a special site for changing your password, which didn�t work, at least not at first...and every on the support staff was issued two joints per shift. Well, not that last part, but they�re reputation as the tie-dyed side of Amazon didn�t exactly serve them well when this very real, boring and serious crisis came down. That�s the Buzz Report for this week, everyone. I�m B.C., Molly�s back with the verdict next week.
