Ep. 1184: Where we'll kick you apart Video
While you're enjoying the holiday break, check out this very special pre-recorded Yuletide episode dedicated to the most inaccurate cyberpunk movie ever to tumble out of Hollywood. Of course, we're talking about Hackers, the cult classic film that first phreaked its way into our hearts way back in 1995.
CNET's Social Media expert Caroline McCarthy joins us on this 404 Podcast Yuletide episode where we're wrapping up the year in tech!
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.
If you've ever wanted to go behind the scenes at The 404 to see what it takes to get the show running every morning, this Yuletide episode has your answers.

Today's special holiday edition of The 404 is dedicated to The Fifth Element, easily one of our favorite movies of all time. From the epic vision of the distant future to the colorful characters and of course the operatic techno scene, this movie retains its entertainment value after almost 13 years.
We've had a productive year on The 404, so before we hit 2011 we're glancing back at a few of our favorite movies from the show in 2010.
