Ep. 885: Where we we weez the juice Video
Two Natali Morris appearances in one week? It must be Friday. She joins us for the first half of today's episode, where we discuss today's top stories in tech and culture, including new terror alerts coming to Facebook and Twitter, a Vatican magazine that says hackers are doing God's work, a study linking physical pain to social rejection, and "LOL" earning its place in the English Oxford Dictionary.
Apple's WWDC announcement could signal the iPhone 5 is coming later this fall. Facebook's movie model is working, mobile phone payments will be the new black, and Symbian phones will be discontinued in 2010...*tear*. Plus, thanks to the Oxford English Dictionary "muffin top" will live forever.
It's the Apple Byte's 100th episode and we celebrate with a Mophie Juice Pack Air giveaway; the new MacBook Air could be just around the corner; and we find unique ways to charge your iPhone.
The Oxford dictionary gets a contemporary update with a new entry for an old concept: "Friendzone." We'll show you how to ascend the madness and introduce you to something called the "Dongiverse" that may help.
On today's show, it's the Summer of Hackers: Anonymous hits the Spanish police website and threatens the Federal Reserve (which, frankly, we find to be a target that's probably worthy of a little DDoS action). Plus, a nation-state may have hacked IMF, but they're not saying much, and the Bitcoin market crashes (buy low!). Plus, scientists create jellyfish that can shoot tiny, weak lasers ... a stepping stone to the scariest sharks ever.
BlackBerry data disruptions now impact the U.S. and Canada, Apple devices can update to iOS 5 today to get iCloud, Wall Street protesters leveraging a new messaging app, and Sony locks down accounts to defend against another hack attack.
Stoopid Andy highlights today's episode where we question the very existence of the US Postal Service.
Want to get the most out of your laptop's battery? On today's Tekzilla Daily, Patrick shows you how to optimize your computer's settings to wring every last bit of juice, without any third party applications!
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!
