Ep. 995: Where the damage has been done Video
It feels pretty weird to say it, but we've come to Wilson's last episode as a co-host of The 404 Podcast. It's been an awesome journey with this guy, but we'll send him off with a proper farewell from listeners that have been with us from the beginning. "Uncle" Henry Tapchus joins us as the chat room liaison to help us screen voicemails and get through Adele's "Someone Like You" with our dignity intact.
Cooley dishes on the coolest cars from the LA Auto Show and reveals his dirty little iPhone secret.
We've utterly given up the concept of "on-topic" today, as talk of Apple's Developer License Agreement suddenly turns into a conversation about patent law and nuclear arsenals and our one voicemail is a dirty anagram. What happened!? Also, some bad words.
The end of the year wouldn't be complete without a penultimate appearance from CNET Audiophiliac Steve Guttenberg. In this episode, we'll check in with the new Rough Trade record store in Brooklyn, sample a variety of hi-fi gear from Sony, Koss, and U-Turn, preview a movie about the best-selling band you've never heard of, and explore the future of digital music.
It's Natali Morris's penultimate episode and National High Five Day! Wilson's back on the show after yesterday's trip to the NY Auto Show, and today we're chewing the beef between Lady Gaga and Weird Al Yankovic and chatting about a 3D porno topping box office records in China, a dispute over Apple's environmental footprint, and a pair of 2D glasses that just make things more natural.
On today's episode of The 404 Podcast, hosts Jeff Bakalar and Wilson Tang welcome Justin Yu back into the studio. He chats up his skydiving adventure and life on the West coast, and the crew also discusses the usual stories from the Internet including Paul the Octopus predicting the entire World Cup, the recent never-ending heat wave, and a Japanese senior citizen arrested for hitting a student who wouldn't give up his seat on the bus.
Natali Del Conte is back to reveal even more great news about her growing family! We also debut a batch of video voicemails, chat about Apple's Mac OS X Lion/Macbook Air news, and more!
The secret's out about Mountain Lion; we'll break it down for you. Plus, Apple wants to bring us "5D" TV. What the heck is that?
Robots are slowly taking over the world, and a startup in Illinois called Narrative Science is targeting journalists as the next profession to go extinct. Well, maybe just the journalists covering local youth sports and number-crunching quarterly earning reports. We're safe for now, but let us know if they come out with a robot that can podcast and tell dirty jokes. This and more stories, plus listener voicemails on today's episode of The 404 Podcast!
Don't dump your Apple stock before you listen to today's episode, because Wilson's going to tell us why Apple will survive the resignation of Steve Jobs. Wilson lets go of a couple tears before we lighten up a bit with a slightly less upsetting fact: the Web is older than incoming college freshmen.
