Ep 1071: Where we say goodbye to Hollywood Video
Mark Licea joins us on the show for a chat about television programming as it's affected by streaming content providers like Hulu and Netflix Watch Instantly.
Jeff's back and gives us a rundown of his minivacation to Atlantic City, N.J., and his love affair with pinball machines. A lot of other stories to talk about today, like the Zune HD, the new Chevy Volt, Spielberg taking over the Halo movie, and Hayato Shimizu's interpretation of Jeff as the superhero COMMODORE!
Polygon's Russ Frushtick joins Jeff in the studio to talk about the new Anchorman 2 trailer and the best food he had last week in Los Angeles.
With Justin Yu still arguing with a airline representative at LAX, Jeff invites CNET Executive Editor David Carnoy onto the show to talk about his new book "The Big Exit." Also joining the show today is CNET TV reviewer Ty Pendlebury.
Google launches a Facebook-like service in Gmail, YouTube helps block your children from searching for porn and violence, and Netflix is going to stream at 1080p but not anytime soon.
Some Gamespot.com editors discovered that the Microsoft Xbox Kinect seems to have trouble recognizing darker skinned players. Plus, it pretty much requires you to have a big, giant house. So, you can see how we arrived at the obvious conclusion in our headline, there. Plus, why Hulu is, in fact, destroying the TV industry, and we're ok with that. And Facebook Beacon returns in the form of Deals. Clever, Facebook. Very clever. --Molly
If Wilson is the brains of The 404, and Jeff is the brawn, then what is Justin? Aside from answering that question, we're also thinking of new names for Jeff's hockey team, talking about Adobe's new software rental program, iPad 2s coming to Toys 'R Us stores and Best Buy vaults, and the future of the Apple iPod Touch.
The 404 welcomes Jeff back from covering E3 in Los Angeles to which he explains why he's never going back.
CNET TV Editor Ty Pendlebury sits down with The 404 Podcast and dishes his thoughts on the the new Apple iPad, the return of Sim City, the Netflix channel, and the constant threat of Australian drop bears.
The 404 is complete once again, forming flying Vs and throwing knuckle pucks that would make Gordon Bombay proud. The first story to mention is the return of The Red Kid (not that one, Jeff), but this time to Twitter! It's about time, Conan, but you know you're a little late to the Twitter game when you get beaten by His Holiness the Dalai Lama himself. It's good to have Conan back, and he might even be coming to a city near you!
