Buzz Out Loud 1495: Lytro: the "magic camera" that's blown our minds (Podcast)

On today's show, we fall in love with Lytro, the game-changing photo technology that we can't wait to get our hands on. Get in line, geeks. Also, will Yahoo buy Hulu? And can we call it Ya-Hulu if they do-do? Plus, Apple scores the broadest patent ever, which makes us wonder if the patent office is even trying anymore, and Shazam is coming to your TV.

Buzz Out Loud 1494: We Like + 1 Yonanna (Podcast)

The otherwise staid and professional Jason Hiner joins us from TechRepublic to discuss important issues like the amazing Yonanna machine, which turns your banana into froyo just like that! Ok, ok, in tech news, a 19-year-old is arrested in the UK, but LulzSec says he's just the IRC moderator. Sounds important to us. Plus, your Facebook and Twitter posts will haunt you for seven years, just like your bad credit card purchases.

Buzz Out Loud 1493: We're all screwed. Drink. (Podcast)

It's both a fun game and a sad commentary on the state of our existence! On today's show, the average user is caught in the crossfire of the hacker wars, but dammit, even LulzSec agrees that Sega is off limits. Speaking of which, Donald might have been right about Bitcorn, rather than Bitcoin. Ouch. And how to restore the memories of really, really stoned rats. Poor little rats. --Molly

Buzz Out Loud 1492: The streaming movie crack cycle (Podcast)

We are back online today and explain exactly what happened to the show yesterday when it blew up. We discuss Rims demise and the Senate passing a law making it a felony to stream copyright protected material on the interwebs while at the same time day dream about Spotify coming to the US in all of its music streaming glory.

Buzz Out Loud 1491: The lost episode (Podcast)

A power surge mid-show knocked us, Donald's birthday celebration, and the rest of the episode offline. Here's what we managed to salvage from the wreckage ... at least you can read the stories and emails for yourselves! See you tomorrow!

Buzz Out Loud 1490: Generate odor at will (Podcast)

CNET's Declan McCullagh reports that Google's access point sniffing ways may also be slurping up Mac address information on mobile phones and laptops ... and can be used to track your information. This is sewious. Also, Pandora's IPO is bubblicious, we go deep inside the psychology of Apple's retail experience, and smell-o-vision coming to a TV near you. Geez, Tong, what are you eating!?

Buzz Out Loud 1489: 7073, people, keep it simple (Podcast)

The most common iPhone passcodes are revealed on today's show (no, not by LulzSec), but Tong has a pager-callback suggestion for all of us. A proposal in Congress would force U.S. companies to actually tell us when they're hacked and our data is stolen (yes, please), and Rojadirecta becomes the people's hero in challenging the government's domain-name seizures. Go, Rojadirecta, go!

Buzz Out Loud 1488: Sharks with frickin' lasers on their heads (Podcast)

On today's show, it's the Summer of Hackers: Anonymous hits the Spanish police website and threatens the Federal Reserve (which, frankly, we find to be a target that's probably worthy of a little DDoS action). Plus, a nation-state may have hacked IMF, but they're not saying much, and the Bitcoin market crashes (buy low!). Plus, scientists create jellyfish that can shoot tiny, weak lasers ... a stepping stone to the scariest sharks ever.

Buzz Out Loud 1487: What, you don't Beluga? (Podcast)

Carriers are freaking out because they might not be able to keep charging you exorbitant rates to send tiny little data bits over the same network all the other data goes over--i.e., texting is dead. Hurry up and die, texting. Also, how Windows Phone 7 might catch up to iPhone by 2015 (we're skeptical) and why not to tag yourself in 250 pictures of you and your ex-girlfriend. We'd have thought the answer was obvious.

Buzz Out Loud 1486: Franken-mouse and up-skirting Roombas (Podcast)

On today's show, scientists discover that shocking tiny artificial brains with electricity produces the equivalent of short-term memory. Apocalypse nigh. Also, the Supreme Court rules against Microsoft in the i4i patent case, Apple goes Calvinball with a NEW RULE that says they won't take a cut of in-app subscriptions. Plus, Citibank got hacked ... a month ago. Thanks for the heads up, guys.
