If you didn't see Shaun White destroying the competition at the Men's Olympic Halfpipe Finals in Vancouver last night, check out the video and prepare for a face melt, and don't forget to watch our interview with the man himself!

It's Natali Morris's second-to-the-second-to-the-last appearance on the show before her departure from CNET on April 29th, but today she turns the studio upside down when she tells us she disliked Batman Returns.

Today's episode of The 404 Podcast deals with a lot of movies, which makes sense after last night's utterly forgettable Academy Awards, or so Wilson claims, because he forgot to watch. The awards committee certainly isn't lacking a sense of irony after selecting Sandra Bullock for the Best Female Performance in "The Blind Side." The actress also won the Razzie for Worst Female Actor in "All About Steve."
It's our first day back from CES so we'll give you quick recap of last week's shows, but you should really go back and hear them yourself!

More than 125,000 people are expected at this year's Comic-Con, the pop culture expo that's been held in San Diego for the last four decades. And as CNET's Kara Tsuboi shows us, a large chunk of them turn out in their superhero finery.
