>> Hi everybody. How are you doing? Are you having a good day? That's good. Well I'm so excited to be here and like Jimmy mentioned I was working with Bono on Red for his friend's birthday party and I changed the words for Acoustic Poker Face to be about the organization and he's really changed the model for how charities function with large corporations so what's very exciting about this is that all the money that Red will make off of these headphones will go directly to helping people that are affected by the Aids epidemic in Africa and I spoke to Bano specifically about this at Vivo and I said I would really really love to do a Red Headphone and so that's what we're working on a red headphone and the red headphone that will also be in heartbeat form so I'm here to announce that to you today that there will be a red heartbeat. [ Background music ]
>> It will also be packaged with a version of Acoustic Poker Face, the red version for Bono. So I'm so excited to be here and thank you guys so much for coming out. We really appreciate Indigo Monsters ^M00:01:59 [ Music ]
Before we get into the stories on today's episode of CNET's The 404 Podcast, let's spend a moment on the magic of Lady Gaga. In this morning's pre-show, Jeff admits he's finally fallen for the incendiary pop star, and it's all because of her newest video, "Bad Romance." We all agree that the diva is definitely the most talented pop star, but the nerds inside of us have to ask: does she have to constantly pimp her Monster Heartbeat headphones in every single music video?
At CES 2011 in Las Vegas, Lady Gaga unveiled the new Polaroid Grey Label.
Dell shows off its tablet in a new version of the Streak, Lady Gaga releases a line of Polaroid printers and cameras, and Skype announces that it has acquired Qik.
The Heartbeats by Lady Gaga Headphones are undeniably unique and there's little doubt that they'll attract fashionistas far and wide, but prospective buyers should be wary of potential fit issues and the overpowering low-end response.
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.
We get our hands on one of the hottest tablets of CES 2011. Molly shrieks, and I cry. Plus, Verizon announces a boatload of 4G LTE devices, Lady Gaga debuts her Grey Label product line and Jar Jar Binks comes to Blu-Ray.
Tune in this week if you want to hear Donald and Jasmine talk about pretty much nothing. Also, Donald huffs bourbon throughout, Jasmine rants about Lady Gaga headphones, and both try to insert a little bit of news before the holiday break. But mostly, it's nothing. Be sure to check out CNET the week of January 4 for all the CES goodness, including a live podcast broadcast at 3PM on Friday, January 8.
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.
It's almost the end of the work week, so Natali Del Conte is on the show and she's bringing the dirty starting with the queen of filthy pop, Lady Gaga. According to video analytics company Visible Measures, the diva has just become the first artist ever to achieve one billion online video views thanks to her three hit singles: Poker Face, Just Dance, and Bad Romance.
For our last day at CES 2011, we're poking fun at all the ridiculous show antics we've seen, including Samsung's extravagant press conference, Lady Gaga's Polaroid glasses, an anti-teen sexting service, 50 Cent arriving at the CNET stage, a Christian game scoring site, and more!
