Ep. 900: Where we have sweet dreams of rhythm and dancing Video
Japanese pop star Leah Dizon joins the guys on today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast, and Mark Licea also joins the fun to talk about his personal history with the international sensation.
RIP Holo-Pac. 2Pac fans hoping for a worldwide holographic tour are out of luck as its parent company Digital Domain ironically filed for bankruptcy on the 16th anniversary of the artist's death. Mark Licea joins us on today's 404 episode to re-cap the Nintendo Wii U and TVii announcements. We'll also talk more about Apple iPhone 5 hype, the worst accessory for your smartphone, and the rise and fall of the emojicon.
Jeff didn't get the memo about daylight-saving time and misses today's episode of The 404 Podcast, but luckily our good buddy Mark Licea of The Green Show set his clock back and helps us out with today's Halloween recap, as well as a few stories from around the Internet.
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast starts off with a intimate glimpse into Justin's mind, so we recommend throwing on some goggles before watching. He reveals that his name was initially supposed to be Jonathan, but due to complications surrounding the pronunciation of his name, the doctor just shortened it to the simpler-sounding name, Justin. Jeff also has a funny story about his father's name, and it turns out that it wasn't always Sweet Lou!
CNET TV's new video game show preGAME has just launched! Make sure you check out today's premiere episode where hosts Jeff Bakalar and Mark Licea take you through an early level in the highly anticipated game BioShock 2 an entire week before it releases!
This week's episode is inspired by Natali's incredibly appropriate (if not unintended) comment from last week's episode. Really, if you haven't heard it, check it out. Then listen to today's show where we discuss a wide array of chairs on which to sit. That's right, chairs are the "it". Why, what were you thinking?
It's the penultimate episode before our 404th episode of The 404. Yes, the Internet will exploded when we run our live show tomorrow. Today's episode, though, might keep us from ever reaching that magic number. In our first half, we discuss our recollections of learning about the birds and the bees. In the second half, we have a great Calls from the Public section, and we mention Best Buy's latest snafu.
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.
This may be the last week of live 404 episodes, and it's also been the most hectic. With Wilson missing his second day in a row and Caroline McCarthy being bedridden by a holiday cold, Mark Licea and Bonnie Cha help me hold down the fort.
It's the last live episode of The 404...of 2009. Russ Frushtick, chief gamer at MTV Networks, joins the show today along with Mark Licea of The Green Show to discuss the tumultuous, but exciting year in videogames. Finally, we get to the winners of our "Hangover" contest.
