Ep. 914: Where we hope no one gets died Video
The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet hopes to be a Kindle-killer this holiday season. The Nook Color and Nook Simple Touch also get updated features and lower prices.
It's a battle between two 7-inch tablets with their own ecosystems. The Barnes & Noble Nook HD gets updated with Google Play and Chrome, but is it enough to best Amazon's Kindle Fire HD?
Groupon starts selling goods, lawmakers seek FTC probe of Facebook, Nokia hands out more pink slips, and Amazon lights a fire under the BlackBerry PlayBook.
Natali Morris takes a first look at the BlackBerry PlayBook from CES 2011.
CNET's Bridget Carey breaks down the features and availability of BlackBerry's new Z10 and Q10 smartphones.
The Rev. Justin Yu is out for the rest of the week, but in his place, we have the always informative financial guru Jill Schlesinger in his place. Today, we talk about the new Amazon Kindle Fire, and how it changes everything in the tablet market (especially for Google). But we also quiz Aunt Jill about the on-going crisis in Europe, and she tells us about the sugary grab bag at the News & Documentary Emmys.
Believe it or not, the fourth host on today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast is the Nook, Barnes & Noble's e-book reader with a color touch screen and Wi-Fi. The device is currently sold out and on back order throughout B&N, so it wasn't easy to obtain. We had to walk 500 miles and battle a Nazgul to get it, but the in-studio demo was worth the wait. If you haven't seen a Nook up close, you're in for a treat.
Santa just might bring you the Barnes & Noble Nook in time for Christmas, Twitter plays with paid accounts, and adult apps are coming to Android.
A big Happy New Year to the entire 404 audience! Today we've got Bridget Carey in for Justin Yu as the crew chats about the holiday break and looks ahead to CES 2014!
