>> A round applause.
>> Oh man. I am very turned on.
>> I need to [Inaudible] --
>> Smoke in here?
>> That was amazing.
>> This is the 404, Ladies and Gentlemen, live from CES. I'm Jeff Backalar.
>> I'm Wilson Tanning.
>> And I'm Justin Hugh.
>> And this is the show where we celebrate good juju and bad juju. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> It does count.
>> This is like a yellow, white -- it's like a Twinkie going on here. Yeah. It's good.
>> What was that advertisement in the beginning? [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> That was nasty.
>> That's getting a little wild here.
>> Yes, that's the -- that's the type of show this is. Thank you everyone, live audience. This is very nice -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Chat room. What's going on, guys.
>> Day three of CES.
>> It's the last full day of CES.
>> It feels like four months we've been here.
>> Oh man -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Natalie said to me the other day, it's like summer camp.
>> Like tomorrow our parent comes and picks us up. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Yeah, absolutely.
>> So what did you guys do today, did you cruise the floor more or --
>> Checked it out a little bit. I saw the Panasonic 3 D thing. That was pretty cool. Brian was flipping out about it the other day.
>> You know what I saw today, I was over at the Toshiba booth and they had this crazy virtual screen just right out of the Minority Report, where a girl would be in front of it, she was like moving her hands and it was just like selecting stuff on the computer.
>> Oh, it worked well?
>> It was pretty cool. Yeah. It was not bad.
>> Actually I've got to say my favorite demonstration was the Casio [Inaudible] camera. This camera's got 1,000 frame per second recording.
>> Why would you need that?
>> They brought out the UNLV cheerleading squad. And they had them do back flips.
>> That's why you were there?
>> That's why it's my favorite one.
>> Now that's a demo I can roll with. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> That's dirty.
>> All right. So we've got plenty of stories we can talk about today.
>> But I -- last night, right, like something happened.
>> No, no, no --
>> Talking about [Inaudible] -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> There's a rumor going around that some booth was jacked last night. Has anybody heard about this, someone got robbed?
>> I heard that the AMD booth got robbed. I don't know. That it got broken into. And --
>> Is that a new computer?
>> Yeah, I just got this new processor chip. It was like 5 bucks. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> It wasn't --
>> Anyway, I was able to secure a very cheap processor this morning, on the strip there.
>> Five dollars. We've got a box full of them underneath the table. So --
>> -- people got jacked last night at CES, but people got robbed.
>> There's a rumor floating around. I don't know.
>> Yeah, did anyone hear about that? No? No. All right. Maybe we made it up.
>> Maybe we're off the hook.
>> Yeah. Maybe we got away with it.
>> I think the CNET crew is the only one allowed after the show closes.
>> I think it was all those porn stars at the convention next door.
>> They need that kind the processor. Absolutely.
>> Yeah, they do. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Speaking of porn -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> This one, not the other one. This is insane. Tell us about it.
>> And I saw something called the virtual hole.
>> Now we can't go into detail about it --
>> Oh, we're going to go into detail about it. We're going to go into detail about it. I have one -- no, just kidding. Have you guys seen this on the show floor? It's gross.
>> So explain what it is and what it does.
>> I'm a little afraid to. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Or what it does to you.
>> It's this giant tube -- that you --
>> With the -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> That you enter with -- you like, penetrate it's membrane, right? And then you hook it up to your television and the television sends signals to this hole that, like --
>> Yeah. It sort of like corresponds with what's going on with the screen. So it squeezes as things happen on the screen.
>> This is so wrong. I mean, like --
>> If you guys could see the audience's faces now. Someone just puked in the corner over there. Sorry sir, we'll clean that up. Don't worry about that.
>> Apparently comes up with a heads up display and DVDs you can buy.
>> It's 3 D as well, so there's like a wall of girls around you.
>> Available in your parents' basement, and that's okay.
>> I don't know how much we can talk about this. But we'll post a link in our blog -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> For those of you who don't know.
>> Surprise, surprise. It was made in Japan. No surprise there.
>> Now this is interesting, this kind of leads into something that's happening. Everyone's asking for me now, we're asking for money now from the government. So the porn industry needs money?
>> Now I saw this a couple of days ago, was this legit or -- I don't understand how that happens, how does the porn industry needs money?
>> I think -- well obviously they're doing fairly well. Their attendance -- everybody here goes over to the other conference after work.
>> So explain that. I know you give that --
>> I saw this actually on Anderson Cooper, and he had someone on to talk about how apparently --
>> The two guys who are doing it are Larry Flint, the CEO of Hustler, and Joe Francis, the guy who made Girls Gone Wild video series.
>> He's a classy guy right there.
>> You know what, I don't know if the porn industry needs a bail out. I think in this floundering economy, porn is the only thing that people are going to spend money on.
>> It's like Jack Daniels needing a bail out.
>> No, but they --
>> They gave that up. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> All three of these companies -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> And the virtual hole. Why not. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> All right, moving along. So we're big movie fans, big comic book fans.
>> Especially Justin over here. Justin introduced us over to the graphic novel.
>> Yeah, I'm the king of the nerds, if that's what you're implying. Yeah, I'll take that.
>> So tell us about what's going on with Watch Man. There's a legal battle going on over this movie?
>> Right. Well what's going on with Watch Man this movie is supposed to come out in March, exactly, but the WB and Fox -- Fox is putting it out but the WB recently --
>> It's the other way around.
>> It's the other way around?
>> Yeah. Warner Brothers produced the film.
>> Right. And then Fox came out and said they originally had the rights to the movie. So there's this big legal contention about the movie coming out, and they were talking about maybe pushing it back.
>> Yeah, Fox was threatening to sue -- well, they did sue Warner Brothers, and they did manage to stop them, initially anyway, from releasing the movie. Warner Brothers decided to get into talks with them. Now it looks like we've got a good chance of the movie actually coming out on March 6. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> You even read that graphic novel? [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> It's the Bible of graphic novels.
>> You should swear on the Watch Man.
>> Have you guys read it yet?
>> I read about a quarter of it. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> You guys have had two years to read it -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> -- anything you say.
>> What? [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> What can I throw at you on the stage. Is this digital --
>> Also we just found out that the new terminator movie is going to be scored by Daniel Elfman. So we're going to have a Pee Wee Herman theme.
>> Jack Skeling tone will make an appearance in this movie. I don't
>> It just blows my mind that there's still A Terminator movie coming out. With, like, the TV show going on.
>> It's crazy. People apparently love this nonsense. I don't like it.
>> I know you guys aren't that interested in it, but I kind of am, mostly because Christian Bale is in it.
>> Right. He can do no wrong.
>> Well, I have a romantic thing for Christian Bale.
>> He's in the new Terminator?
>> He's John Connor.
>> Right. Beating his mother in the movie. Art imitating life.
>> Oh, that's tasteless. All right Ladies and Gentlemen, we're going to take a break. We will be back in a second. But first, we have another special announcement.

>> Oh my goodness.
>> Well, thank you very much, heavenly voice. That was amazing.
>> I can pretty much die now, having heard that.
>> Seriously. We could end the show now. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> All right, let's get back into the stories. This is really weird. This is -- did you put this in --
>> Yeah. I put this in.
>> Yeah, what's up.
>> So this guy, this is [Inaudible] dot-com, I was reading earlier this guy apparently got his car jacked. It was a BMW. And he left his cell phone, his cash in there, these guys just show up with a gun, carjack him. Okay, so he's feeling really bad, he goes to the police station, files a report --
>> This happened at CES?
>> Didn't happen at CES. There's a tech angle to this.
>> Why are you telling the story.
>> Gets his car jacked, goes to the police station, files a report. And he's out with his buddies getting a drink because you know, we just got his car jacked. It was a brand new BMW, I think.
>> Yeah, you think the first reaction would be to call the police.
>> No, he's like --
>> You're an alcoholic if that's the first thing you do when you get your car jacked is go to the bar.
>> But what he decides to do with his buddies he gets his best friend to text his cell phone which he left in the car, hey, I'm out with some hot chics, and there's some drugs. Okay? Meet me here.
>> Don't tell me --
>> The carjackers show up at the place and the police arrest them.
>> That is amazing.
>> Did you read this on the onion.com? Because that is not a reputable news source.
>> I cannot believe that -- like, what -- I just stole this car. Let me -- you know --
>> That sounds like something Wilson texted me earlier. He did the same thing -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Got mad drugs and hookers here, if you want to come -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Lovely amenities at the Residence Inn.
>> Wow -- these burglars --
>> [Inaudible] -- a barbecue pit every 30 feet.
>> Shut up. Shut up.
>> God, those are pretty dumb burglars. If I burgle the car I probably wouldn't --
>> You wouldn't pick up the cell phone.
>> I probably pick up the cell phone.
>> And go to where --
>> Call me back, dude, the number is 911-545. Call me back right now. I'll tell you where the location it.
>> But can they track them down? You know, they have the cell phone, like, [Inaudible] stuff.
>> They actually had a product here that -- it's like a low jack system for your laptop. They were advertising it over here. Did you guys check that out? It's pretty cool. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Maybe this guy had that -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> All these kinds of stories, all these people who steal laptops with cameras built into them --
>> Right, and then people just take photos of them
>> And they're like -- check out this laptop I just stole -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> The kid who got his Xbox jacked, oh yeah, and they just used the wireless connect function to find the room.
>> And then he stole it back.
>> That takes some --
>> I don't want to live in a world where you can't burgle a kid's Xbox and not have to worry.
>> It's amazing how many dumb criminals there are out there.
>> I agree. You know what else is dumb, MTV.
>> Oh God.
>> I've got a bone to pick with MTV.
>> Apparently they have a new TV show called Bromance. Have you guys heard about this?
>> Has anyone heard about this nonsense?
>> Like, MTV puts out quality shows like The Hills -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> That's an amazing show. Really educational.
>> They're up for an Emmy. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> So tell us about Bromance.
>> Bromance is a new reality television show. It's based on love, but not the kind of love between, you know, a couple. It's a Bromance. So it's a guy that's just looking for friends.
>> So it's kind of like the love we have for each other.
>> And what they do is they have contests, right? They have contests which friend would bail you out of jail or you know, who can you fire bomb a house with.
>> How much of a freaking loser to you have to be to go on a reality television show on TV just to find a group of dudes to hang out with? And they're in a Jacuzzi, too? Come on! I would not go to a Jacuzzi to find friends. That's just -- you do not -- that's not -- they're going to go to a bath house next, and then a sauna after that. [ Laughter ]
>> You guys --
>> Guys, let's go watch [Inaudible] -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> I don't know.
>> Do they have tickets, like those reality dating shows, like, it's always two chics. Is it two dudes, and you've got to hand one a ticket and they've got to leave for 15 minutes?
>> Guaranteed, the sequel to this television show is going to be bro-jobs. The after math. And then wedding. Brodio or something like that. Bro-jobs and then the brodio afterwards to celebrate.
>> All right, I think that's good. I think we've -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Getting pretty bad.
>> [Inaudible] coming out of nowhere are going to help us out. [Inaudible] everyone, hang out after the show. We're going to give out a bunch of prizes. We have a hundred dollar gift certificate to Best Buy you can win. Just throw in your business card. Talk to Charlotte. You might have heard her maybe -- but that's going to do it for today from CES.
>> Be sure to check us out though. We also do the morning radio show, every morning, 11 a.m. eastern time. You can watch it at the 404.cnet.com.
>> We do a lot of voice mails, a lot of listener interactivity. 1-866-404-CNET. That is how you get in touch with the show. That's how you get heard. We're on Facebook, we're on Twitter, we do all that stuff. [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> That's going to do it. We have one more show from CES tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. so come down to the stage -- [ Multiple voices speaking ]
>> Tune in to that show.
>> All right. That's going to do it for today. I'm Jeff Backalar.
>> I'm Wilson Tanning.
>> And I'm Justin Hugh.
>> It's the 404. Good night, Las Vegas. Round of applause, Ladies and Gentlemen.
>> Bromance all around. Happy birthday [Inaudible] --
>> All right. ^M00:15:00 [ Music ]
