Ep. 1028: Where we go dumpster diving Video
Today we hear how the Del Conte's deal with their enemies, find out what kind of deposit Tong makes when he visits a bank, wonder why on EARTH Google ever even bought the slice of AOL it just dumped, and look forward to the Pre on Verizon -- but when?
Huge news day today, with Google's I/O presentation packing about a day's worth of news into a single hourlong presentation--and this is just the first day. We wonder whether Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Chrome OS can exist in the same world, and whether the music labels will ever again get a seat at the table. Plus, why Microsoft bought Skype, cellphones getting disaster notification texts, and the New Yorker comes to the iPad. --Molly
Aunt Jill Schlesinger joins the show today to talk about the value of bagels. That's right, for the last two days, Wilson has started the show by munching down on his new brunch fave: an onion bagel with lox and vegetable cream cheese. She makes her recommendations for the best bagels in town, and you might be surprised to find out that she's in love with a bagel made by a Vietnamese guy. In the meanwhile, she tells Justin that given his meager investments of 16 cents in his IRA, he should just file the 1040EZ.
Our special guests on today's show are Ariel and Bridget, two NY transplants that got their first taste of snow in yesterday's Nor'easter storm. Bridget brings the Apple iPad Mini and a cup of Starbucks cofffe for show and tell today, ordered with some trouble using Square Wallet. We'll also explore two new generators--one that produces energy through fire, and another powered by urine. Which solution makes more sense for the next storm? Tune in to hear more...
