Ep. 919: Where we say farewell to someone insanely great Video
The show is shorter than usual today, but we have to get out of the office before Nemo takes over the city. The stories of the day include: the George Bush family photos exposed by the hacker known as "Guccifer"; the rumors of a Portal movie directed by J.J. Abrams; snow panic driving Weather.com completely insane; and a patent troll claiming to have the rights to every podcast on the Internet.
On today's show, CNET reporter and 404 BFF Caroline McCarthy directs us in a live read-through of the actual script for the upcoming Facebook movie and also joins us in talking about 4Chan, Comic-Con, and this weekend's insane hailstorm.
Warning: today's show is slightly shorter than usual, thanks to our live coverage of Google's Honeycomb, Android Market, and Lady Killer event. But it's worth it: we break down the big announcements from Google, talk about the launch of The Daily, Egypt's restoration of Internet service, and the TSA planning to show slightly less junk than before. Thanks, guys. --Molly
All week long we've been talking about the popularity of 3D technology, both in the home and in the theater, and we've finally decided to invite someone on the show to answer our questions on the future of home theater. David Katzmaier, senior editor of TVs and home theater for CNET, joins us on today's episode of The 404 podcast to fill us in on the latest developments in the world of 3D TVs and what we can expect to see down the line.
Scott Stein joins Jeff Bakalar on this episode of the 404. The guys geek out over the plot line in The Last of Us, roll their eyes at today's insane weather coverage and hypothesize about the next Star Wars film.
Steve Guttenberg joins us on the show with his usual list of irreverent talking points.
Another Natali Del Conte Thursday is upon us, and, as usual, her timing is perfect because all this week we've been talking about parenting! So far, we've only talked about how frustrating it can be to teach parents how to use technology; however, today's episode exposes all the creative ways we got into trouble as children.
On today's episode, The 404 guys bond over their disgust with self-professed "gurus," "ninjas," "masters," and "mavens" of social media. They'll also talk about why the next DJ will likely be an algorithm and what it's liked to experience modern technology after spending 25 years in prison.
Amazon's Cloud Music servers cut out for a brief period yesterday after the world's Little Monsters flooded the site to download Lady Gaga's new album "Born This Way" for just $0.99. Jeff and Wilson are two such fans, and we love it when Wilson gets all righteous about piracy because we get to throw it back in his face. Today's episode of The 404 deals with Jeff's addition to Reddit, digital projectionists in Boston AMC theaters purposefully making 2D movies dimmer than usual, and the debut of everyone's favorite PB&J in a can...yes, the Candwich.
Today we'll tell you exactly what you can learn about technology from watching all 456 episodes of "Law and Order," what's so great and no so much about the new Pebble Steel smartwatch, and why South Koreans are paying money to watch each other eat through a computer.
