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.
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.
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."
Bridget Carey is back in her first appearance of the year, and we're torturing her today with tales of meat made of celebrities, weird food from IBM's Watson Supercomputer, dog-to-speech translation, and facial hair transplants!
Starbucks dips a toe into the Square Wallet app, Pinterest lets you keep secret boards, and Airbnb users offer free rooms for Sandy victims.

On day three of CES 2014, Donald and Bridget discuss T-Mobile's big announcement and some of the more intriguing, lesser known products from the show.
Leaked from today's episode: Bridget Carey previews her new show CNET Update, dissecting the 1991 "Super Mario Bros." movie, and a collection of the most outdated technology you can still buy today.
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.
