Ep. 1023: Where we go one step beyond Video
As difficult as it is to name our "favorite Ashton Kutcher movie," the first official picture of the actor playing Steve Jobs for the upcoming biopic "jOBS" is pretty convincing.
Today we're saying goodbye to a CNET colleague and frequent 404 guest host Tim Geisenheimer. No, this is not an April Fool's joke, but guess what? The Shock Top is. Tim's here to help us show off our favorite Internet Aprils Fools pranks, starting with Hulu reverting back to 1995.
Google's April Fools jokes aren't what they used to be, AT&T pro-rates early termination fees (no joke!) and the first Open Social social network launches in Latin America.
The next Edge promises a big new dose of self-driving tech.
It's Friday the 13th, but nothing is creepier than this morning's news about Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, we're talking about the list of other potential castings for the slot, the Library of Congress launching a National Jukebox, a pricey out of court settlement from Limewire, and a user-submitted picture of Natali Morris that's too wrong not to show.
Scott Stein fills in for Wilson, who is spending a sick day at home crawling WebMD on his iPad. Today's show discusses a phenomena known as "Netflix hoarding," a new service called Cloud Girlfriend, and we suggest a few April Fool's day pranks for nerds.
At CES 2008, Brian Tong steps out of the convention center to check out "Boss," a self-driving car.
Once again this year, we've had it with April Fool's jokes. Except for one. You'll see. If you're more tired of iPad than you are of April Fool's, skip the first half of the show where we recap other people's reviews since Apple refuses to give us an iPad early. Also, we debunk Microsoft's claims that Chrome is fundamentally insecure, which almost ought to be a joke.
Today, we're joined by two ladies, Ace Reporter Caroline McCarthy again and "Allie" of Heavy & Flo fame. This makes the two remaining boys of The 404 very happy. On today's show, we've got sex offenders, speak easys, 1920s Prohibition and Ashton Kutcher. Excited? We are.
Your thoughts on self-driving cars, why humans can't drive well in the best of conditions, the ultimate car security system and the price of diesel is tough all over.
