Material 208: That Was Genius

Flo is working on adopting a new hobby this summer, and Andy tells us how he missed out on that Android-based netbook.

We also talk about how indexing video is the next essential step for search, and how fun it could be to make a game with Google’s drag-and-drop Game Builder.
