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...
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.
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.
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!
Bridget Carey is filing in for Justin Yu on a show where we weigh the pros and cons of an actual real-life Jurassic Park -- because there's an Austalian billionaire who's noodling the idea. We'll also check out some of Jeff's interview with Broken Lizard stars Jay Chandrasehkar and Kevin Heffernan about their new film, The Babymakers.
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.
The new Focus is finally here and looks like the Euro Fords we've wanted.
Our little Dialed In family is back together once again. After enduring some technical difficulties and travel nightmares, Kent and I are back from Barcelona to join Nicole in the studio where we reflect on all the news from Mobile World Congress 2010. If there's one takeaway from the show, it's that software will play a primary role in this year's smartphones, while hardware will take a backseat. In other news, AT&T is finally getting its first Android phone and Sprint's WiMax devices are coming but not as early as some say. All this plus the latest cell phone reviews on this week's episode of Dialed In.
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.
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.
