It’s time for another episode of OMG/JK, the weekly TechCrunch TV series that features fellow writer MG Siegler and me discussing the latest news in tech. It’s been a big week for Microsoft in particular: the company announced an expanded partnership with Facebook to integrate your social graph into Bing, and it also officially launched its mobile phone OS Windows Phone 7. We also talk about next week’s Apple event, and give our take on The Social Network (which we finally got around to seeing).

Here are some posts relevant to the topics we discuss:

Electromagnetic Pulse Gun To Help In Police Chases

adeelarshad82 writes “In an attempt to put an end to dangerous police high speed chases, scientists at Eureka Aerospace have developed an electromagnetic pulse gun called the High Power Electromagnetic System, or HPEMS. It develops a high-intensity directed pulse of electricity designed to disable a car’s microprocessor system, shutting down all of its systems. Right now the prototype seen in a video fills an entire lab, but they have plans to shrink its size to hand-held proportions. Some form of this is already featured in OnStar-equipped vehicles though the electromagnetic signal used to disable the vehicle is beamed via satellite, and doesn’t cripple the in-car computer, but rather puts it into a mode that allows police to easily catch and then stop the fleeing criminal.”
