Ep. 1079: Where we ban all the skinnies Video
It's back to the regular news stories on today's show, and we start off strong with talk about how the iPhone 3.0 may give sex toys a run for their money. See what happens when you give developers control over the vibration functionality?
Today we'll teach you lessons on how to be passive aggressive to your "friends" on Facebook. Also: vibrating tattoos from Nokia, vibrating steering wheels, Typography Scrabble, and how to spot an online dating predator.
It's the smart watch that everyone is buzzing about; Apple updates its MacBook Pro Retina line; and we teach you how to kiss your phone.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu celebrate annual Embrace Your Inner Geek Day by doing their normal and discussing YouTube's new Partner Grants program, gaming doubling kids' risk of ADHD, Star Wars characters like Yoda and Darth Vader reading you driving directions, and testing cell phone speeds in New York City.
Did you know that Dave Chappelle was in a "Home Improvement" spinoff sitcom show in the 1990s? All the episodes are on YouTube right now, and we'll trace its history on today's 404 episode.
There's all kinds of vibrating on today's episode, from the server farm I imagine sits in Rafe's bedroom, to the oscillations of molecular computing, to the vibrations of sound from our rant about Drive Safe.ly. And Molly's rant on Net neutrality last Friday also caused some vibrations, and we get to chatting about how much regulation you really need. Oh, and don't forget you have no privacy.
Apple bestowed an iPhone 5 onto CNET's own Scott Stein for an advanced review, and he brings it along with him on today's 404 episode. He tells us about his evaluation experience shrouded in secrecy, why he gave the iPhone 5 an Editor's Choice award, and where he feels the company lost their design footing. iOS users all received the new version 6 update today as well, so we'll take a tour of the new Maps application and lament the disappearance of everyone's favorite YouTube app.
It was a crazy week in cell phone land, what with the Droid Razr and the Galaxy Nexus making their worldwide debut on the same day. And it's not over yet, as Nokia and Microsoft have an announcement of their own coming up this week. Is there such a thing as too much of a good thing? We also talk about the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and all the latest reviews.
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.
It's a bucket of rumors for a potential iPhone Slim, Apple has to publicly say Samsung didn't copy the iPad, and I'll show you how to get a MacBook Air Jordan.
