Ep. 995: Go to a bloody coffee shop Video
Your registry is probably a mess, but you don't even have to know what a registry is in order to clean it. Your PC will thank you and probably run a little better.
Welcome to our first Buzz Out Loud Weekly, which is, ironically, our third show this week! It's a stair-step approach, really. We're recapping and analyzing Amazon's Kindle conflagration, wondering what the new iPhone 5 will look like and whether hidden retail skus do indeed point to a cheaper model, and pondering where to get free coffee on this, National Coffee Day. Plus, your calls and letters -- keep them coming!
This is the story of two reporters who don't really know what they're talking about because the content is random.
CNET editor David Katzmaier shows you what features and TVs you should be looking for when shopping for a HDTV.
On today's show, Brian Cooley kindly drops in to keep the streak alive -- with bourbon! Also, to discuss one analyst's counter-intuitive assessment that the Nintendo 3DS is priced too low. Well, I suppose it is, if you're a shareholder. But we're happy. In other news today, the iPad 2 will have a camera (duh), Google Voice might let you port your number for $20, and Angry Birds is probably coming to TV. Why didn't we think of Angry Birds, is what I want to know? --Molly
It is Monday morning - a golden beam of sunlight illuminates a bedside table. On this table we see a stack of prayer cards, books about the lives of the Saints, a Child's Catholic Pictionary, a picture of St. Rita, a rosary and a small statue of Mother Teresa. This room is Jessica's - she is 12 years old and wants to be a nun. Her alarm rings an electronic version of "Jesus, Joy of Man's Desiring". She gets up and today, like every other day, she goes to St. Mary's church to say her prayers before school. As she's walking to class, she sees a boy she has never seen in her neighborhood before. He...is beautiful. Her eyes are locked onto him as she walks right into her friends. Her prayer cards go flying into the air. The girls stop to help her pick them up - all the time poking fun at her for wanting to be a nun, as they usually do - and of course all nuns are virgins - so she'll have to stay a virgin for the rest of her life. They tell her what they think she'll be missing, but they really don't have a clue about sex and she doesn't believe them...they can't possibly be right. Jessica's friends run off when the school bell rings, but the young BOY comes over to help her pick up her prayer cards. He is more beautiful than she thought; she finds herself staring at him. He touches her hand; Jessica doesn't know what to do, so she runs away. The next morning, instead of going to church, she walks to the bookstore. She purchases a book about sex and brings it to the playground. As she's showing her friends the pictures in the book, the principal walks up to them. Alarmed, Jessica's friends run off and the book falls to the ground - the principal, seeing this interesting book, quizzically looks at Jessica...She is busted. Now go watch the movie to see what happens!
Alison Rosen is back on the program today, and no she's not really shrinking. That said, she is mystified by Craigslist missed connections, so we debate about what sort of scenario would lend itself to the use of the site's bizarre feature.
The eMachines T5224 has a sleek new look, runs Windows Vista and delivers respectable budget performance with most of the features you'd want, but we think you can find a better PC for the money if you shop around.
Want to know what IBM, Palm, and all the other tech biggies will be up to next year? Tom thinks he knows.
