Ep. 1241: Where we rip from the rich and seed to the poor Video
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!
Happy belated 4th! We're back from celebrating on Independence by blowing up a piece of it, and we spend the first half of today's episode recounting all the BBQ we ate yesterday. We're also bringing you results of the annual Nathan's hog dog eating contest and breaking news about one of our favorite shows on Comedy Central--and of course we wouldn't let a Monday go by without Tanging that Tune!
Wilson's made a full recovery and is back on today's show, just in time to help us celebrate St. Patrick's Day! We're celebrating the best way we know how without actually drinking alcohol on the show--anyone else notice that Jeff looks eerily Irish today?
On today's show: How Flappy Bird is holding you back from the good life; why the George Zimmerman vs. DMX story is actually a pitch from a failed episode of "South Park;" the story of a modern Jeopardy demigod; and which celebrities we're begging to be on Twitter already.
Today is the 600th episode of The 404 Podcast, and we're celebrating the milestone with Andrew Mager, a close friend of the show and former CNET employee! He's in New York covering Internet Week for ZDNet and gives us the scoop on the latest face-melting announcements from the tech world, including the FUTURE OF PRINTING, with a little help from yours truly, of course.
Do yourself a favor and watch the video for today's episode because we're broadcasting from our new studio! We'll show off our Halloween costumes, tell you about the first ticket for driving with Google Glass, demo the Pax Ploom vaporizer, and more!
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.
Leaked from today's episode of The 404: James Cameron goes for a swim, Windows Phone Challenge cheats, sleeping in class, and walking face first into the Apple Store.
Today we're joined by Robin Yang, a gamer that made her first CNET appearance on preGame last year and will soon move to Seattle to work for PopCap Games, the creator of online casual games like Plants vs. Zombies, Bewjeweled, and Peggle. But before she heads out West, she's guest hosting today's show about the Playstation hack fallout, a man arrested for singing Kung Fu fighting, the next Terminator film, and a Google survey about smartphones in the bathroom.
Poor Mark Zuckerberg has an almost-literal meltdown on-stage at All Things D and it makes us wonder: is it time for a grownup to take over there? Or just time for Zuck to throw his privacy boss under the bus? Also, HP doesn't want to make smartphones with its new WebOS toy, the Dell Streak continues to baffle, and hey! Globular rovers!
