The 404 427: Where despite all our rage we are still just rats in a cage Video
Today's show title is a little deceptive, and we should be clear that Alison Rosen's mother does not make an appearance on this episode, but Alison's all we need anyway because she's the future of television! We're excited to have her back after a long hiatus, and she updates us on everything going on in her life, including ALISON ROSEN IS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND, a new weekly interactive show on Ustream that features guests like Michael Showalter and Andrew W.K., in addition to an upcoming segment where Alison will explore the world of online dating. Be sure to add her on Twitter to stay updated.
Because if we do, awesome. Today is our 1,000th episode and we are so grateful that so many people came together to celebrate. Tomorrow we get back to regular tech news, but bear with us as we take several trips down memory lane, and entertain many well-wishes from various folks.
As usual, today's Friday episode of The 404 Podcast covers a random variety of topics, including the next Spider-man film, a software program that recognizes sarcasm, and our favorite subject: Chinese people.
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg joins The 404 Podcast for a special Friday episode all about the art of music appreciation. We love having Steve on the show because he actually comes prepared with topics of discussion, and today he launches right into a thoughtful point about how music has become background filler for the digital generation.
Dustin Drury of the comedy group DrCoolSex joins the show today to talk about their latest viral video about one of our favorite childhood show Doug on Nickelodeon.
Wilson is out today supposedly covering the New York Auto Show for CNETTV, but we suspect that he's at home still trying to get the Cheeseburger Dorito flavor off his tongue from yesterday's episode. We ain't mad at him either, because Natali Del Conte steps into his shoes to sort out a few stories on today's episode, starting with a short explanation behind that "PC Load Letter" message you've probably seen on your office printer.
It's my birthday today and Jeff is still making me write the blog, but I'm fine with that because today's episode is exceptional. Not just because Richard "Gems" Peterson lived up to his nickname on two occasions, but also because the stories are exceptionally strange. Join us for talks of Manti Te'o, infidelity phones, overachieving children, dusty donkeys, and adult toys from the future.
Welcome to Justin's penultimate episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast! Tomorrow will be our last show as a team, but there's plenty of special Yuletide episodes, contests, 404 merchandise, and CES shows to look forward to in 2010.
Wilson's especially giddy today because Apple just released two new MacBook Airs and a pair of new Mac Minis that all feature a data port for high-speed Thunderbolt peripherals. On today's episode, we're also talking about Rupert Murdoch's pie in the face, a social network for Anonymous hackers called AnonPlus, and the proper way to teach your parents how to use modern technology.
On today's show, Buzz Out Loud gets you a tiny bit high ... using a sine wave. Could it be!? Also, we continue our long slog through the Story that Wouldn't End: the iPhone 4 antenna issue. Press conference tomorrow! Also, will the Droid X self-destruct if you try to mod it? Maybe, maybe not. But it seems like the phone world is all about picking your poison these days.
