Ep. 1161: Where we don't eat the snow Video
Today's BOL ushers in the dawn of...a new drinking game! Whenever you hear us say "definitely" on today's show--and it's going to be often--take a swig. Also, we Monday-morning quarterback the Super Bowl ads and explore the many reasons people don't want to buy an iPad. Oh, and my Droid is definitely crashy (drink!)--Molly.
Jeff and Ariel are both away so it's up to Richard, Bridget, and me to kick off the week. We're all over the place today, from fireworks complaints, pulling a Houdini at parties, Google Glass Arrests, and the new Radioshack "concept stores."
The eMachines ET1161-03 delivers fewer features than its competition at the same price. Stretch your dollar further, and you'll find a desktop PC with significantly better components for only $50 more.
At first glance, the eMachines ET1161-07 seems like a decent setup, but a laundry list of subpar components running on 32-bit Windows Vista just can't keep up with other similarly priced systems that give you much faster performance and higher-quality components for just $100 more.
Starbucks dips a toe into the Square Wallet app, Pinterest lets you keep secret boards, and Airbnb users offer free rooms for Sandy victims.

Aside from today's show having the best title ever, we're chatting with Bridget Carey about Google I/O 2013 and nerd fights. All this plus a new contest giveaway!
Gems, Bridget, Ariel, and I sit down for a 404 chat about Facebook baiting users to share more mobile data with Instagram 3.0, Buzzfeed's newest rubbable GIFs, the rise of cinemgraphs, eBay banning the sale of spells online, and regional stereotypes seen through the eyes of Google auto-complete.
Cybertronic Bridget Carey guest stars on today's episode and dons her newly purchased Google Glass Explorer Edition headset! She'll give us her first impressions and we'll try on the future of wearable technology.
