Ep. 1183: Where we shut up and take your money Video
Patent wars reignite, the Internet is nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, and multitasking may be coming to the iPhone. It's an epic sort of show today. Also, PS3 gets in the game with a motion-controller, and employees like us knowingly violate IT policies like crazy people.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu welcome Moneywatch.com's Financial Decoder Jill Schlesinger on the show to answer listener-submitted financial questions, the Amazon and Facebook partnership, and Facebook's new Instant Account Destruction button.
New rules in Europe prevent Net advertisers from tracking you sans permission, you can now control your Netflix queue via Microsoft Kinect, and Toshiba announces hard drives that self-erase in the wrong hands.
Mark Licea transports us back to the 90s on today's 404 Podcast, which also happens to be our 900th episode! How appropriate that the penultimate episode would also fall on Jonathan Taylor Thomas's 30th birthday!
It's the penultimate episode before our 404th episode of The 404. Yes, the Internet will exploded when we run our live show tomorrow. Today's episode, though, might keep us from ever reaching that magic number. In our first half, we discuss our recollections of learning about the birds and the bees. In the second half, we have a great Calls from the Public section, and we mention Best Buy's latest snafu.
Somehow we make it past the wild tesla coil in the room to bring you an awesome (if not kind of late) show! Today we show you how to self-destruct your private data, discuss how 3D is totally lame, and why we think Jon Stewart should run for president.
It's Natali Morris's penultimate episode and National High Five Day! Wilson's back on the show after yesterday's trip to the NY Auto Show, and today we're chewing the beef between Lady Gaga and Weird Al Yankovic and chatting about a 3D porno topping box office records in China, a dispute over Apple's environmental footprint, and a pair of 2D glasses that just make things more natural.
It's Wilson's penultimate episode on The 404 Podcast, but his departure just wouldn't feel right unless we let him carry on today about the Apple OS 10.8 Mountain Lion announcement. We'll also reveal Apple's dirty little PR secret while we're on the topic, and of course play a few voicemails from listeners lamenting Wilson's desertion.
It's episode 59 of the Digital City, and if our cast looks a little different today, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Joey, Julie, and Scott all called in sick, so we recruited some of our CNET colleagues to step in and offer their holiday shopping advice.
Welcome to Justin's penultimate episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast! Tomorrow will be our last show as a team, but there's plenty of special Yuletide episodes, contests, 404 merchandise, and CES shows to look forward to in 2010.
