Ep. 1185: Where 50 Euros go a long way Video
Our special guests on today's show are Ariel and Bridget, two NY transplants that got their first taste of snow in yesterday's Nor'easter storm. Bridget brings the Apple iPad Mini and a cup of Starbucks cofffe for show and tell today, ordered with some trouble using Square Wallet. We'll also explore two new generators--one that produces energy through fire, and another powered by urine. Which solution makes more sense for the next storm? Tune in to hear more...
Jeff is back from honeymooning in Hawaii, and it feels really good now that The 404 is complete again. Follow along with the slide show as Jeff tells us about his trip!
They said it would never happen, but the day has finally come for Justin to get some much-needed tail....as he dons a skunk costume and becomes Justin Le Pieu for today's very unspooky Halloween episode of The 404! Be sure to check out today's video for all the details. Since Jeff is out today and this coming Monday for who-knows-what, the guys ask everyone's favorite Kenley and Alli to help co-host the show.
Natali Del Conte makes her triumphant return from E3 and joins us on today's show. After suffering through two years with an HTC Mogul, Jeff finally upgraded to the Palm Pre this weekend. Tune in for Jeff's personal review as well as some unfortunate news that has us all reeling...with laughter.
On today's show, Jeff and Polygon's Russ Frushtick will speak the unsaid about the Xbox One and predict this year's hellish Black Friday, then Justin will read an excerpt from the worst fan fiction ever written.
Longtime 404 listener Ammi took some time out of her busy vacation from Sweden to drop by our studios this morning, so we invite her on the show to tell us about her first trip to the United States...and also to help us locate Sweden on the map, because we're geographically hopeless.
Our flexitarian producer Ariel Nunez is back on the mixing board, and he'll start today's show with a gastrointestinal story about his first meat-eating experience in over six years. We'll also talk about Tuesday's Groupon earnings report, why the bad news signals the death of daily deals, and an alternative that uses video surveillance and your Facebook profile to send you custom coupons.
For our final show at CES 2013, we're showing off a trip to Insert Coin(s), a video game bar and lounge in downtown Las Vegas. We'll also highlight some of the ups and down of this year's product showcases, examine the trend of overbuilding gadgets for toughness, and more.
Tune in to today's 404 episode to learn how to enter for a chance to win one of three Threadless t-shirts and a $30 gift certificate to Threadless.com! Richard "Gems" Peterson fills in for Ariel and tells us about his trip to Seattle with Affirmation, an organization supporting gay and lesbian members of the Mormon church.
Veronica Belmont and Ben Huh join us on stage to talk about the brewing war between Apple and Google, pay walls on the web... and we also wage tiny cute little wars on each other as well.
