Ep. 794: Where all we are is dust in the wind, dude Video
Mr. Natali Morris is on the show today which means we get to geek out with Clayton about tech vests, on-air personalities, comic book movie adaptations, and the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum!
Wilson mysteriously disappears on this beautiful Wednesday, but Natali's pulling a twofer this week and filling in to help us with today's rundown. To her delight, a new augmented reality app is bringing future tech from the Harry Potter series alive, a PhillieBot will chuck the first patch at tonight's game, and a new iPhone case protects more than just the device inside.
Our special guests on today's show are Ariel and Bridget, two NY transplants that got their first taste of snow in yesterday's Nor'easter storm. Bridget brings the Apple iPad Mini and a cup of Starbucks cofffe for show and tell today, ordered with some trouble using Square Wallet. We'll also explore two new generators--one that produces energy through fire, and another powered by urine. Which solution makes more sense for the next storm? Tune in to hear more...
We examine the next-generation Nintendo Wii, the double rainbow dude selling out, a guy trying to beat Modern Warfare 2 without killing, and a couple good voice-mails on today's episode of The 404 Podcast!
Today's story rundown includes the Boy Scouts of America staying culturally relevant with a new robotics merit badge, Cisco says goodbye to Flip mobile camcorders, a crowdsourced fundraiser pokes fun at M. Night Shymalan's dwindling film career, and Germany says "no" to Google Street View.
Wilson's out sick today, but CNET's Bridget Carey steps up to the plate in the bottom of the 9th and knocks it out of the park with a full story rundown that includes Facebook iPad announcements, the next iPhone's killer app, Google's 13th birthday, camera lens thieves, and more! Did I use that baseball metaphor correctly?
Jeff keeps complaining about the lack of gaming news on the show, so we're bringing Mark Licea on the show every Wednesday for your weekly video game update! It's like Pre-Game but with more dudes.
Bridget Carey makes her first appearance on CNET TV today. She's the host of an upcoming daily tech news show on CNET called Checked In, so be sure to follow her on Twitter so you don't miss the first episode. She'll help us out with our story rundown today and gives her take on Lavar Burton bringing back Reading Rainbow as an iPad app, an LA film studio constructing an underground "post-apocalyptic" fortress, and the resurgence of AOL e-mail addresses as a pre-Internet status symbol.
Unfortunately, Natali Del Conte is still posted up on the West Coast covering E3 2010, but the three of us are still in New York and today we're talking about a New York assemblyman whose mission is to ban the iPhone 4's FaceTime videochat application from the road.
Things are certainly winding down here at the CNET New York offices as The 404 finishes up its last two live episodes for the year. In the studio with us today is Natali Del Conte along with her CBS producer Will--so it sounds like the show is about to get some Early Show love on Friday morning!
