Ep. 827: Where Lady Gaga makes Amazon's Cloud cry Video
It's Natali Morris's penultimate episode and National High Five Day! Wilson's back on the show after yesterday's trip to the NY Auto Show, and today we're chewing the beef between Lady Gaga and Weird Al Yankovic and chatting about a 3D porno topping box office records in China, a dispute over Apple's environmental footprint, and a pair of 2D glasses that just make things more natural.
Lady Gaga debuts her newest headphones by Monster at the Consumer Electronics Show 2010 in Las Vegas.
Before we get into the stories on today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast, let's spend a moment on the magic of Lady Gaga. In this morning's pre-show, Jeff admits he's finally fallen for the incendiary pop star, and it's all because of her newest video, "Bad Romance." We all agree that the diva is definitely the most talented pop star, but the nerds inside of us have to ask: does she have to constantly pimp her Monster Heartbeat headphones in every single music video?
At CES 2011 in Las Vegas, Lady Gaga unveiled the new Polaroid Grey Label.
We're back! Jeff and Wilson are joined in the studio today with "Kenri," and Justin chimes in from San Francisco via phone. It's back to our usual shenanigans again, and we recount our holiday break. Plus, we have an apology to make to James Cameron.
We usually scold Wilson for eating on the air, but we're making an exception today for a taste test of Jeff's horrific supermarket wild card: Cheeseburger-flavored Doritos! Who knew that harnessing the sinewy flavor of cooked beef and artificial cheese would be such a catastrophe?
Today we're joined by Ilan Zechory and Tom Lehman from RapGenius.com, a site that offers historical context and trivia to lyrics from popular rappers like Odd Future, Jay-Z, and Kanye West. Right now they mostly analyze rap but there's also a few pop music deconstructions like Rebecca Black's "Friday" and "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga.
Dell shows off its tablet in a new version of the Streak, Lady Gaga releases a line of Polaroid printers and cameras, and Skype announces that it has acquired Qik.
Jeff almost didn't make it out of court this morning to be on the show, but he squirms out of Lady Justice's grasp just in time to join us, maybe with a few minutes in between to update his Facebook.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar, Wilson G. Tang, and Justin Yu discuss Apple slowly turning into SkyNet, learn about Sharpie's newest liquid pencil, discover a new online dating site for virgins!
