Leaked from today's 404 show: why gay men are worth more on Facebook, Marshall amplifier beer chiller, Android phones and condoms, F-bombs, and HBO Go on Xbox Live!
Jeff spent his 31st birthday weekend playing Bioshock Infinite and writing the CNET review. I can't tell if that's fun or really depressing, but check out today's episode for his full report.
Is this the ultimate early adopter penalty? If you buy more than two iPads to send to your friends overseas or give to your family, you risk a lifetime ban on future purchases? That just can't be right. Also not right: the sweet little child who calls tell us how to get porn on the iPhone. Just upsetting. Plus: Palm deathwatch and Facebook's privacy untangled (er, sort of).
Leaks from the secret negotiations of the ACTA treaty allege that ISPs worldwide would be required to lose safe-harbor protections, implement three-strike antipiracy policies, and worse. We think this is outrageous. (Taken from episode 1099)
IBM is working on an artificial brain which it thinks it'll have done by 2019. And we figure once that happens the robots will rise and we will become your pets. And like cats we'll think that we're in charge. In other news Modern Warfare 2 beats Harry Potter to a pulp and Verizon and AT&T are a courting! Actually they're in court. Being sued.
Known for his controversial approach to the music industry Gaz Reynolds returns to the ever competative world of POP with his new single 'Some Forgive' on World Domination Records, which includes remixes by Matt Stedeford, Marc Barnes and Starlet DJs, who are currently riding high on the Radio One playlist with their single 'Can't Stop Dancin'. Gaz also has a storming video to match! The video shows Gaz at his best with the back drop of a beautiful city (St Petersburg, Russia) steeped in magical history. The female role in this video is played by Russian model OLYA who is rapidly building her own fan base off the back of this video and it was recently rumoured in the music press that the two are a HOT item both on screen and off. The combination of both Gaz and OLYA is quite explosive and at times very sensual and sexual. Gaz and OLYA will quite literately take your breath away! A recent web cast from Russia on his website Gaz World gave fans a better insight into what to expect from Gaz in the future - more action, more fun, locations, more special effects and more importantly - more GAZ! Gaz Reynolds has an incredible back catalogue of 'HITS' including; 'I Don't Care', 'In This House', 'Where Will You Go?', 'Plastic Girl','On Holy Ground' and the international smash 'Electric Kama Sutra'. 'Some Forgive' certainly has 'HIT' written all over it! This is backed up by Ben Smith of Pressure Radio who recently said; "Nice vocals quality breakdowns pumpin beat wikid!" Judging by the radio spins its already recieving around the world its already a big 'HIT'!! Whilst the track takes Gaz's music in a new direction there is no doubt his fans will be pleased with the end result! The new single includes remixes by Matt Stedeford and guest vocals by the legendary JT The Bone Crusher. Having recently signed several international licensing deals on several of his songs and having bagged major radio air play on an international scale and a stack of major television contracts including BPM TV (4.5 million viewers) in Canada, YMN TV (98 million viewers) in USA and worldwide, and MAV TV (3 million viewers) in USA, and the airing of the video on Video C in UK, it seems the world is in the palm of Gaz's hands. The recent launch of his branded P2P Software and the new video being licensed to Intent Media has certainly helped Gaz climb the ladder of fame. You could even say he really is dominating the world with his World Domination Records Label and his hard headed approach to the ever changing world of pop! A recent article about Gaz published in Boston based magazine SKOPE by Melinda Green, described Gaz as; "A rising music star unlike any other who is a methodic genius". A spokesman for WNOK FM in USA recently said; "Gaz is a very popular Artist on our station which is why we regularly spin his tracks. 'Some Forgive' is just as popular!" KG95 FM, USA have been spinning Gaz tracks since 2004 when he had a major HIT on radio with 'In This House'. A recent rise in requests for his songs has guaranteed air play for 'Some Forgive' Recent additions to My Space, VH1, Aol Radio, MTV, All Music Guide, Rolling Stone, & LAUNCH websites provides further evidence that the interest in Gaz's music is indeed global!
In our latest episode, we wonder why no other tech entrepreneurs have gotten big-screen treatment like Mark Zuckerberg; Scott worries about laptop chest-burns; and Joey dreams of a world where all consoles can play together.
What just happened? We thought it was going to be a slow news day, but right before our podcast was about to begin HP and Palm dropped a bomb and announced they had entered into an agreement where HP would buy Palm for $1.2 billion. The partnership caught us completely by surprise, but it's also one that makes sense for both companies. We discuss the possibilities to come out of this merger and more on this week's episode of Dialed In.
