Ep. 1243: Where clouds are for the weak Video
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg joins us today to discuss the Back to the Future video game trailer, Steve's celebrity encounters, 3D surround sound, and more headphone advice for Wilson!
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg (not that one) is back on the show and telling us why iPod docks, Beats Audio and Spotify are ruining the music industry. Steve also has a few ideas on how to make one last buck off the music industry, and advises us on the rules of listening to music in public.
After 2 solid hours of live coverage of the Steve Jobs keynote at WWDC, we dissect the announcement and offer you all the takeaways. Oh, and that's not the only tech news. How about HTC Evo's record breaking launch, HP printers getting their own email addresses, and a look into the mysterious insignia printed inside Mark Zuckerberg's sweatshirt.
We have no idea what today's show title means, so we're happy to welcome Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg back on the show to spell it out for us. He's also here to officially kick off "The Audiophillie Music Awards for Excellence in Recorded Sound" contest! Read Steve's blog on the contest here. Keep in mind that this is not "American Idol," so entries won't be judged by musical talent, but on the quality of the recording itself.
If you're even remotely interested in the Beatles, today's episode of The 404 is a must listen. CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg helps us out today for all things Beatles. To set it all up, Steve gives the three of us a lesson in how the band essentially shaped a decade of music and culture and how they became innovators in the way that bands record music. For example, did you know that it only took the band 4 hours to record and mix the song "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band?" Later on in the show, Steve tells us about how the Beatles used a vacuum tube-based machine to record their earlier albums and later switched to solid-state, with adverse affects to the low-end sounds. Lots more Beatles trivia on the show!
Our guest today is Steve Sphere Guttenberg, the man behind CNET's Audiophiliac blog. We'll talk to him about the immortal LP, the return of music videos sans VJs, Steve's interview with Young Guru, and more.
Sphere's Law of Recurring Subject Matter argues that, given enough time, all conversations with Steve Guttenberg will inevitably become audiocentric. As usual, The Audiophiliac brings a ransom list of talking points today, including Spotify robbing musicians, Benford's law, Say Yes to the Dress, and a Monoprice controversy.
CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg is back, and he's wearing a shirt made of grapes. His list of today's talking points include how to dodge a war, when and why the Internet will end, an interview with Steve Albini, and the story of simple haircut that turned into a disaster.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu discuss initial reviews of Chris Nolan's "Inception", attempt to predict Steve Jobs' pending announcement about the Apple iPhone 4, and talk 3D TVs with Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg.
CNET audio expert Steve "Sphere" Guttenberg samples some of his favorite reference tracks, dishes advice on what to do before buying a sound bar, and wonders: are the Beatles are groovy again?
