Ep. 1082: Where it's rude to point Video
First, apologies for the song that will be stuck in your head for at least a week. Blame the chat room. In the news today, the T-Mobile Sidekick outage, the ongoing Facebook outage, the IBM outage that briefly crippled Air New Zealand, and the unbelievable failure that is the PSP Go launch. It's a fun show.
Kent German shows you where on CNET you can check wireless coverage for your area. Also, you now can download an app from Root Wireless, CNET's partner, for select phones to gather data for yourself.
I hope you are sitting, and not standing. For this is in fact the final episode of Gadgettes. Yes, it sucks. But the show will always live on in the archives. Before you start re-listening to every single past episode, enjoy our final sendoff where we (appropriately) cover nearly all of the segments from the show.
We take our tech gambling show back to its roots, and come at you live from the CNET stage at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. Apple rumors abound (of course), Angry Birds has basically jumped the shark big time, and where was HTC's quad-core phone? Also, Humiliation Day!

What are they good for? Where are they going?

Don't miss this look into current and future state of the blogosphere.
The outer space horror franchise is back on preGame, a week before its release! Tune in to today's show where we check out an action packed scene from Dead Space 2!
Even though I definitely messed up the title format and everything else for that matter, today's show is still "Where the cheese stands alone," because you get to witness the pain as I try to record a SOLO podcast. That's right, Jeff is out and Wilson called in sick, so I'm left to fend for myself with the generous help of a few friends along the way.
Discovering where the folder or file you're currently looking at is located, or backtracking through a Web site's directory can be a tedious affair. Thankfully, Veronica has the solution, and it's as simple as a click of a mouse.
On today's show, we visit the horror that is the We Dare game for Wii (really!? REALLY!?), celebrate the expected disappearance of content spam from Google search results, and geek out on the details of Thunderbolt. Plus, bigger ads on HuffPo that might not be a bad thing, the Xoom rooted in two hours flat, and Computer Love! --Molly
