Ep. 1131: The last Word from Microsoft? Video
On our 1200th episode, we give you special, unprecedented access inside the inner workings of the show. Or, put more accurately, we screw it up a lot. In the news, what little there is post-iPad hangover, a federal appeals court ruled that the FCC lacks the authority to regulate ISPs, Microsoft's Pink project is a collection of cute words coming out April 12, and it's raining tablets.
We are on our way to CES in Las Vegas so there will be no new episode today. Instead, here is an excerpt from episode 1131 where we preview the type of tech that is expected to be found in abundance at this year's CES.
Microsoft has been ordered to stop selling Word, we have tentative pricing and a release date for the HD Zune, and your kids may be turning to YouTube for sex ed.
Goodbyes are never easy, but it ain't so bad when you're leaving for a three-week holiday vacation to Huntington Beach, Calif. On today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast, the dudes celebrate Justin's last show in 2009. To everyone's disappointment, he'll back back in January 2010 for one episode, and then the dudes are off to CES for four shows from the CNET stage!
Not only are the gifts covered in today's episode perfect to meet the mediocre expectations of a white elephant party, but this episode itself is in essence our very own white elephant gift to you! Interpret that as you will, and have a wonderful holiday everyone!
On today's episode, we discover that frenemies make for great collusion, everyone at the White House is suddenly sorry they bought all those iPads, the iPhone 4 doesn't actually have an eyeball, and only birds are now allowed to "tweet."Oh, and everything's better if you're naked.
Follow the drama when the government is temporarily passed from a Democratic Administration to the Republican Speaker of the House, as President Bartlet copes with the kidnapping of his youngest daughter Zoey. All 22 episodes from the Emmy Award winning fifth season are available in a 6-disc collector's set, including never-before-seen special features.
Tune in this week if you want to hear Donald and Jasmine talk about pretty much nothing. Also, Donald huffs bourbon throughout, Jasmine rants about Lady Gaga headphones, and both try to insert a little bit of news before the holiday break. But mostly, it's nothing. Be sure to check out CNET the week of January 4 for all the CES goodness, including a live podcast broadcast at 3PM on Friday, January 8.
It's hard to believe that 2009 has already come and gone, but with the holidays over and 2010 around the corner, we've decided to record a special wrap-up episode to finish off the year. Lots of big changes that happened in the past twelve months, but the most momentous for the show has to be the introduction of the Tricaster and the subsequent evolution into a full-fledged video show. Of course, we have to thank Jason Howell, the man behind all the CNET Podcasts who helped us set up and troubleshoot our new equipment.
