Ep. 654: Where Jeff is elbow deep in poutine Video
Apple's September music event comes early; we'll show you an iMac you can touch; sumo wrestlers get iPads; and we'll get a first peek at Apple's "Bri-TV."
A spoof on "Raiders of the Lost Ark"
Say what you want about Vin Diesel's current choice of movie roles, but we have to give the guy credit for his performance in the film "Boiler Room." One of Jeff's friends found a peculiar flier referencing the movie at a job fair at Rutgers University, so we spend the first few minutes of today's show chatting about that, then move onto the strange phenomenon of Opera Software receiving e-mails from Oprah fans that can't get the spelling correct.
Kenley and our new friend Stoopid Andy join us today to chat about Apple copyrighting "There's an app for that" and the controversy of the iPhone coming to Verizon.
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.
Something ain't right about Punxsutawney Phil's prediction this year, and today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast is spent ripping apart the little marmot in lieu of our own Staten Island Chuck. We also chat about The Daily, the dangers of cloud-based storage, and more!
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.
Until you have these, you ain't got apps on your iPhone.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu discover how to run Flash on an iPhone using Frash, reminisce about Tetris and congratulate the first ever Tetris World Champion, and examine a VW beetle that runs solely on methane gas, aka farts!
It's easy to get lost in all the new Android and Windows Phone handsets coming out soon, but CNET's Kent German, Bonnie Cha, and Nicole Lee have us covered. We chat about a leaked shot of the Google Nexus Prime, a first take of the HTC Titan, and a Microsoft patent that encourages you to access touch screens through your pants. Too easy! This and more irreverent stories on today's episode of The 404 Podcast.
