Ep. 1389: Where the llama gets the last word Video
Bridget Carey is in again for Justin Yu on a show where we try and wrap our heads around the fact that we've sent a robot to the Martian surface. Plus, we'll look at the first headphones for cats, how to pack an emergency drive, an over-the-top Batcave home theater, and a story about the current worst word in the English language
It's Ariel's last day of freedom before getting married next week, so we're throwing him a proper farewell with a bachelor party in the cramped podcast studio. We'll also cover tech antiques found in Walmart and homemade Nintendo 64 Lego Transformers!
The Huawei Ascend G6 is an Android Jelly Bean phone packing 4G LTE connectivity and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera to make your selfies look better than ever
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast deals with a lot of movies, which makes sense after last night's utterly forgettable Academy Awards, or so Wilson claims, because he forgot to watch. The awards committee certainly isn't lacking a sense of irony after selecting Sandra Bullock for the Best Female Performance in "The Blind Side." The actress also won the Razzie for Worst Female Actor in "All About Steve."
If you've ever wondered what a Playboy magazine looks like in braille, you'll want to check out this 404 Podcast, because today the Internet Archives is showing us how they're endeavoring to scan all books and magazines (including Playboy) for posterity.
We kick off today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast with a fun story about the Nestle Crunch Hotline number. The company's latest viral campaign offers a series of hidden menus within the prerecorded call center that lets callers choose between English, Spanish, and Pig Latin language options.
It feels pretty weird to say it, but we've come to Wilson's last episode as a co-host of The 404 Podcast. It's been an awesome journey with this guy, but we'll send him off with a proper farewell from listeners that have been with us from the beginning. "Uncle" Henry Tapchus joins us as the chat room liaison to help us screen voicemails and get through Adele's "Someone Like You" with our dignity intact.
Blackberry users have always hated fun, but today we'll discuss why the company's market share dropped 50% in the last three years. We'll also lament the end of Newsweek's printed magazine, trace back the life of Game Genie, and bid farewell to Flamin' Hot Cheetos from our daily diet.
On today's 404 show, the guys take you through the Winamp timeline, from its DIY roots to the AOL buyout and where it currently stands.
On today's show, we've got a new meme, new details about the Comcast/NBCU merger, and new comments from Apple dismissing Android tablets as both "bizarre" and "vapor." Ok, guys, whatever you say. Verizon offers $200 off iPhone 4 upgrades, in case that takes the sting out a little, and we discuss the rise of universal app stores, consumer confusion over 4G, and sharks in the streets of Australia. It's a wide-ranging show, folks. --Molly
