Ep. 56: Mixed news for Nintendo, plus the social utility of the iPhone Video
In our latest episode, we wonder why no other tech entrepreneurs have gotten big-screen treatment like Mark Zuckerberg; Scott worries about laptop chest-burns; and Joey dreams of a world where all consoles can play together.
Episode 41 of the Digital City, where we discuss Apple's falling market share, Scott's love affair with the Game Boy Micro, and whether Alienware's $5K M17x laptop means the death of gaming PCs.
This week on the Digital City, Joey tests the new Netflix/PS3 BD Live disc; we talk about all the cool new luxury laptops you'll never buy, and how everyone in New York seems to have gotten their hands on a copy of Modern Warfare 2 early.
It's episode 59 of the Digital City, and if our cast looks a little different today, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Joey, Julie, and Scott all called in sick, so we recruited some of our CNET colleagues to step in and offer their holiday shopping advice.
This week, we're all back from CES with a list of the coolest laptops of the show. Plus, the Verizon iPhone is seemingly imminent -- find out if it's worth making the switch.
Apple bestowed an iPhone 5 onto CNET's own Scott Stein for an advanced review, and he brings it along with him on today's 404 episode. He tells us about his evaluation experience shrouded in secrecy, why he gave the iPhone 5 an Editor's Choice award, and where he feels the company lost their design footing. iOS users all received the new version 6 update today as well, so we'll take a tour of the new Maps application and lament the disappearance of everyone's favorite YouTube app.
Episode 58 of the Digital City, where we wrangle with the legal arguments over Apple vs. Psystar; show off the latest super-fancy laptop to hit our desks, the $2,000 HP Envy 15; and find the world's best laptop backpack in the Booq Boa. Both Modern Warfare 2 and New Super Mario Bros. Wii gets some praise, while PSP Go sales seem to hit a wall; and we compare the original God of War games to the new polished-up versions in the God of War collection for PS3.
Episode 32 of the Digital City, where we discuss the hurdles for electric cars in NYC, read the tea leaves on new iPhone hardware at WWDC, find out why Craigslist is (sort of) dropping sex ads, and ponder the improbable physics of Star Trek's black holes.
With Scott and Dan back from E3 in Los Angeles, we get a full rundown of all the new video games and game hardware. Then, Joey and Julie talk about how they devised benchmark tests for a laptop using Google's Chrome operating system.
On today's show, I tee off a little bit on Internet haters who just can't let it go ... in a way that might seem to suggest I can't let it go. Hm. Anyway, in tech news proper, Apple shareholders demand a succession plan, Verizon users demand their iPhone 4s, and AT&T demands $499 and a two-year contract for people who want an Atrix 4G with the laptop dock. Plus: Computer Love! Aloha, everyone! --Molly
