Sony got a boost in its image this week with the rumor that Apple is, apparently, forking over some big bucks to buy 'em. But Flo, Ray, and Nic think it's all bollocks. In addition, the three caballeros (um, two caballeros and one caballera?) talk about Dr. Raymond Soneira's study, and Nic even offers up his own Quick Tip of the Week.
Plus, we answered a few questions from the internet! The internet!!
We live in a digital age, so I’ve always thought that trips outdoors should be the perfect time to free myself from the tech I use every day. But I decided to put that rule to the test on a recent outing, and the experience of bringing my iOS devices along for the hike showed that it’s time to think again. By picking a few choice apps and accessories, I made sure my outdoor experiences were a little more Bear Grylls than Chevy Chase.
Normally we would expect any analysis out of the king of all things TV rating to be crisp and concise, right? Not so when it came to their recent comments about iPad app downloading.

It's the TV wars, but you know what? It's a repeat of the phone wars we've been seeing for some time. Google has decided to forge ahead into realms Apple pioneered. Who will come out on top? Competition is good for the market and for the consumer, so let's see some innovating.
Android users have already had the pleasure of making this app a staple in their mobile lives, and now iPhone users can, too! Google Googles is now available on the iPhone in the Google Mobile app. The application lets you search the world around you by snapping photos, and it also delivers relevant search results to you based on your location so that if you're taking a picture of the foggy Golden Gate Bridge, it will not show you a photo of a landmark on the other side of the country.
