Ep. 1244: Where we take a spa day Video
On today's show, Podfather Adam Curry joins us for gloves-off battles about everything from whether Apple should put out the iPhone for Verizon (Adam says no) to what Nokia used to produce (boots, turns out), and just what exactly is wrong with Nokia.
Outtakes from episode 1244.
Leaked from today's 404 episode: the original Apple iPhone will soon reach "obsolete status," an awful Gangnam Style parody at the Indian Samsung Galaxy unveiling, and Calls From the Public!

Bridget Carey just got back from the launch of the iPhone 4S at the Apple store here in Manhattan, so we pull her into the studio to tell us about all the kooks lined up for first dibs. Despite all the problems users are experience with iOS 5 updates, everyone in line for one left with a 4S, though Bridget tells us not many users were anxious to test out Sprint or Verizon's network. Where's Wilson today? Guess.
Jeff's visited the Bay a few times, but he's still blissfully ignorant about the City's love affair with the naked body. From Bay to Breakers, to the Folsom Street Fair and of course, the Castro district on Halloween, join us as we run down all the places to find public nudity in San Francisco, and why Supervisor Weiner is trying to shut it down.

In Jeff's absence, Wilson takes the reigns as chief engineer for the show...and runs it in to the ground. Just kidding! Today we invite host of The Green Show and longtime 404 friend, Mark Licea, to join us in a few stories about a handy iPhone app, traveling water bottles, Facebook jealousy, Internet addiction, and a hilarious Calls From the Public!
