The Stevenson -- is the deputy editor of talking dot com one -- -- best gaming sites out there you all -- you breaking news you guys don't sleep at all because he was reporting.
You know what you just.
This totally -- that -- Now that's a few different names -- and the like.
Stephen King you post them like Robert -- Sure that it's anyways we'll try to keep -- -- -- -- Politics here.
-- -- -- -- can't let this out.
-- -- -- -- -- on these blogs.
You guys spend hours and hours without sleep seven straight days covering.
Yes well we actually we we benefit from having a -- insular world that's kind of -- secret we've got folks in Japan folks in Australia.
On right now -- states Sweden -- handle time.
-- -- because -- -- and -- -- an hour is the editor in chief of laptop magazine fantastic magazine he's joining us for the first time -- Cinemark.
That and also you guys have a team of people out there because you guys have covered people copy tech's next week in Shanghai right.
-- and what is that -- it's -- it's basically the biggest computer show that's not in the US it's.
Certainly what you remember com contacts from the old writes that this is basically that where a lot of -- netbook vendors.
They sourced their parts you see a lot of designs before they get -- -- wins in the larger companies picked them up.
That's really big technology -- see wouldn't you want big news from Intel there and Nvidia so lot of guts but good side our next generation here.
So next week we may have some sense of some of the netbooks that are coming out I mean is is the major play right now on netbooks.
It is by a longshot that for two reasons one is priced at the other thing is portability and you look at some of the commercials that are going on right now with Verizon they had -- -- -- Another big trend -- yours you're paying 200 bucks but then you're paying the sixty dollar month -- Right don't know that.
Have but I think overall than that but it's going to be huge and I think next week if it ever is but -- -- you're gonna see a couple companies who are you today netbooks bases that on the sidelines.
-- gonna -- -- -- We're talking about this maybe making the last time your on here we're talking about media apple media netbook.
You know you're an apple -- I.
-- you get immediate had a -- -- -- 799.
I get it you get that it -- -- suggests that the Manila -- -- watching TV that's no laptop.
Apple -- -- and so -- he's the policies that regard from we don't see -- -- content would that we won't.
But at WW DC you know which starts June 8 and will be there for that -- We're going to see maybe some of the underpinnings and the next generation operating system and how that might interplay with the device like that if they even hit.
Answers touch capabilities people going to be reading the tea leaves there I don't think we'll see -- -- hardware announcements but hopefully -- last we'll tell us more about where.
The companies had anything you've seen the tea leaves now.
What happened here well I think you know everyone's talking about the rumors about you know sourcing and components and the fact that Apple's supposedly gobbling up -- inch displays.
I think tells you something about where the company's thinking for the latter half of this year maybe early next year.
And I wouldn't be surprised to see them partner with the carrier because they're exclusivity is really only with -- for the iPhone.
The media -- could go anywhere to go all right and -- and now.
I'd make is that on the show before.
We have a little easy -- here has attracted to -- on the show and that I did in Bosnia.
-- -- But if you get to techie and that's what happens.
That we have to pull you back off the edge have to bring it gently mr.
because I don't wanna.
Just it just be nerd watch it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- I was diving to somebody.
Now be filing a lot of reports and you'll see a lot of stuff that I find so the big stories that -- I think we're already seeing some of the rumors let's talk about Sony right now.
What went to C from Sony because they need to do since they need they need to do some important things we don't.
Yeah Sony's got playing much trouble right now they were the earlier the last three generations.
-- their last place this generation wants.
Liable personal Nintendo outmaneuvered everybody and crew that he didn't need to be enough powerful system -- -- -- successful right.
But -- -- Sony has just been slower to -- and they've been so expensive it means less expensive consul we've seen in decades.
Right into the worst recessions here so let's go into that a second hearing -- talk about they're behind on some things that they didn't get on board if you can name something that they they don't have and one of their gaming platforms that Nintendo has.
I mean what do you think what I motion mode and sent the hard -- -- cheap I -- the price the price.
Yeah expensive and I think the target audience to you mean when Nintendo did with that we is that they've targeted an audience that wasn't playing games or or had given up as as a father to I can sort of -- the games that I play with my four year old.
Is Wii baseball -- and it.
Hardcore gamers -- kids like that.
But the bottom line is I'm playing now I probably wouldn't have the time to plan first person shooter idea but by -- -- haven't gone away anywhere so.
That's huge crowds of people that were supporting the PS news and -- the Xbox.
-- is that they still want games and in fact.
Some of -- fans are very accent with Nintendo being in the driver's seat right now because they don't like that direction and it's taking gaming industry and and there's a lot filling it it's just a matter.
Time for the history that 360 to get down price that they can start bringing in a lot of us hardcore gamers that this may be having come into this generation.
So we may see the slimmer PlayStation 3 perhaps -- we've seen -- he's inside us believe we have some -- shots kept me throws them there.
The I mean these are some grainy spy shots of this thing why -- Why Sony -- do this okay they have the PlayStation 3 to bring a smaller version and they're gonna make it a different color I mean if it's pain commitment to.
A by the sound I'm not not that I will buy it but -- but it -- few games I can click if you can't history that verdict they used to have that it -- very taken that how they what they can get an email about this.
That group I mean did you think that -- -- and again that could -- launch of history at at it was a 600 dollars for it and it it could play PS2 games and it didn't help them a couple years ago.
Since then they've been taking -- that it hit 31 by one in order to get that price down.
They've always introduce smaller and more -- versions of their consoles.
Every generation it usually is being command of the generation before it started doing hands of the sustainable forests of defensive maneuver.
Then any sort of final -- for the competition -- he's -- -- -- I think I'm wondering is whether you know.
Blu-ray really needs to be a part of that history experience because I think a lot of us in the tech industry and I think even people who are starting to download movies on apple TV and things like you do it.
You know other set top boxes that are out there is -- How long do we need that form well this this is YE -- Steve Jobs called Blu-ray a bag of hurt you.
Because there's so many issues with it why why do we need to have Blu-ray in a laptop and on in a MacBook pro or MacBook.
Remember here that and it's a perfect segue mark to the other big Sony rumor which is that they would be reintroducing appears theater portable.
With no distract from moving to distract from the system and having it just be an all digital -- right service which and plot for.
Which minus on extraordinary anybody -- an iPod and hasn't yet he's tech sector it's easy in -- years.
But for gaming platform to not have any sort of this drive is unheard of and today maybe if they're releasing that at the forefront of moving that direction away from a physical need.
And so according to some reports it may be called what the PSP -- I everyone's -- -- all about well I think it's funny because you look at.
Oh what's his name from Sony admitted as much that they shouldn't be -- -- Right it needed back in 2005 that if they had gotten jump on apple with the with an iPod or iPod touch.
This it's almost sort of their answer but it's a few years too late -- think this thing is going to catch story catches world -- -- because -- vicinity slide out keyboard Forrest wells flat out control.
It's gonna get rid of you and -- -- -- things the PSP is.
Not the failure that a lot of people seem to think it is just it's just tough to measure success when your competitors and independent yet when it sold 100 million worldwide in the few years that's been out.
But his family has more than twenty million units out there which is -- healthy amount units and better than any other competitive Pennington has ever done that portables.
And what they're talking -- the system sounds really cool.
I just wonder how much backlash there again from people who have a stack -- you and he hits through their games and knocked in the other cram an insidious.
-- without the edge of the Nintendo Wii I am yet so you like the motion -- games love them.
And would you buy a platform that wouldn't have that these days -- actually I wouldn't because that's all yeah that's that's the that's.
It's it's more apparently more a group sort of cracks I'm not a huge -- that while doing it yeah.
One compliment yes you're want to -- glamour of fancy I would do you know I would love to have the graphics I would love to have the processing speed and power PlayStation 3.
With that we controlled well we may have that answer right with if they're gonna -- -- going to release these motion control apparently like remote control right.
Right and and Dallas they've been working on motion control prototypes there's been planning and reporting it including with reporters -- -- with.
-- from the past and current -- McCain has been aggressively covering motion controllers and it's been working on.
That -- murmurs of a controllers a year ago in two years ago and mystery on the Microsoft's and finally I think that working with this little camera right here right now.
We have some video here of what the Microsoft's been jumping into Microsoft here -- enough to throw in the bus.
This is the this is some video what it actually looks like we had some spy shots of what we thought the actual white box sitting on top -- -- platform would look like.
But this is actually some video what it looks like to play -- you'll have to hold anything in your hands -- -- there.
No no controller in his hands and he's punching.
Stephen what are we looking at here -- is this.
I understand too that it's apparently you're able to sit on -- -- behind this guy and it'll only recognized the guy him in the environment in front of it right.
Yeah -- and I'm not sure this is the technology the people talking about now that 3-D V dragon's camera.
But if it's that camera and and -- one person that we wanted technologies he's actually use that congress -- years ago where the I mean people behind it.
Came to my office and they were -- me.
And the difference between that other cameras that we've seen for gaming -- another camera -- recognizing collar or they were recognizing at.
Hold yourself and a freeze frame and it -- -- memorize.
Where you war and then I'll.
The 3-D V camera that I saw it was looking at her facial recognition basic.
-- -- to a nose cone now.
Which remained fixed and relatively unique to -- given her so that -- you could stand behind.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And have something that I -- stated he would one up the week -- it didn't have.
Controller but that's if you believe that motion control of the most important thing rather than the overall aesthetic and -- -- costing him at what point that what's the difference between an.
They cost between an accessory an awful news -- at what point does not -- have an upgrade I mean would you buy.
As a gamer and you play a lot of PC games you cut some especially we.
We test a lot of gaming -- -- the latest in that area.
That you play Nintendo with your kid.
But I mean is this something that appeals to you -- this billion.
I think it would -- actually have an Xbox-360 on myself network and it's.
In that part of the reason is because I have this other council.
I think any effort to me you're consul more mainstream and have more mass appeal.
It's a good -- -- is the question is what is the right price and what gains -- you can -- -- -- -- really do you think with him -- sports I think was as important.
For that we taking off as well as it was the most and what gives you find yourself playing a lot when you -- the week because this is important because it's it's it really tells us what we're in the -- this industry is going.
Like I mean the paddle ball Altman if they fall out -- all just basic ones that are at work group oriented.
Yeah what I I would totally.
-- -- The way that you're talking about average sounds right so so.
Summit that it.
Would you -- you use the Wii balance board.
And yet have the Wii Fit Wii Fit and -- balance -- and I you know I did a few pieces on that of course on the show.
If you can check on YouTube but I am I love that thing.
And other other games of course have come along -- EA.
Challenges your tactics and -- active because of -- that you put around your life we touch that remote right -- demo got on the show when it shows it's a little bit more.
Little bit more intensive than the the original Wii -- Yet but the -- -- right now facing play about you know what what game I think it isn't it because that's what I'm teams do you find that most people.
Purchase -- game consoles because the first game that comes out hurt.
Expert or it will mark the spot notable aren't yet saying that it's a lot of us do what -- comes with it.
And it to those who might be skeptical that it's too late but it add -- a platform just look at it harder rock.
-- they're able to sell.
And he games and -- and we'll sell these.
Couple hundred dollars you know -- -- the drums -- -- they're doing again through The Beatles rock band right and all the different partners announced.
And people of -- -- I don't know we'll -- -- the action on the plastic in it that's what people are doing because.
The hunk of plastic comes -- -- -- combined to make an experience that you've ever find yours and it has tire marks right.
Absolutely and I saw how many you couldn't you know first it was the Nintendo Wii that you couldn't find in the stories -- for the holidays and it is the Wii Fit that you couldn't find anywhere in the source for the holidays.
Editor writes this -- go to pieces and give us -- economy.
Cost development platforms and growing disdain the traditional fight your console life cycle you seemingly practices that the console manufacturers might be adopting an -- and his life cycles.
Five years it seems personal -- long to me anyway.
We're we're used to now getting into my phone that we used to waiting for these new gadgets come out of the union laptop upgrades and so -- Find your life several teams -- -- to me now in in hindsight.
I guess how many years -- gonna get -- Yet I have -- And now and that's how we got some -- things on the table are here.
One of the you have refresh -- quite a few years the other one -- -- in the 106 -- right.
And that things -- the portables they are refreshing very quickly it is and you.
We're game boy advance before that every year a year from now rapidly put it out -- -- we've gone from.
Different generations and that's that's the 1002003.
The home consoles like the publisher's expense one million dollar making game.
They're trying to learn how to -- you know making within the context of the 360 architecture history and one -- -- -- -- opening machine don't know what's gonna surprise you that there with to talk to you guys.
You guys are talking behind the scenes something exciting to be surprised we -- you Hitler -- well you know everywhere heavy what do you think about noteworthy is it.
Well I think that these these much controllers if we see him the microphone much because it works factor than on motion controller.
That that and whatever Sony's doing.
-- back everything there's a big question this victory and that is.
Whether or not we can finally count Microsoft and Sony out from this generation where they still have a fighting chance they're not that way.
-- in a way that is for sure for this generation but.
Sony and Microsoft had enough time to react.
To adapt to finally show us something more than just so here's one little game on the side that we're doing for the new Nintendo audience but what can -- do full force.
What kind of most central and bring them coming in mainstream activities in -- -- This is that you -- -- to do and they don't do it and it that you think they show fall flat.
Then they better -- in the next generation they're pretty much count out terms of coming from the lead.
Hey -- what video game that I send you.
Tony -- that was -- have a license to.
Yeah mark modern warfare two down.
Let's take a look at that that's enough that's a big game actually know -- wanted to know some details about this legacy that particular here's some video of modern warfare Steve what are we -- here.
-- -- Siegel called it a modern warfare can a couple of years ago and -- let people infinity ward for Activision the first person here yet and they did big thing with this is that.
People -- halo was going to once again be today's first person shooter franchise this generation when this called him on workers' personal you know.
It blew away payload in terms of the steel net underneath -- and now it's neck and neck with -- going back for him in terms of most popular for -- -- -- line.
On the on the Xbox-360 at least mean these guys.
Cutting edge graphics.
Very cinematic feel like you're an action movie kind of feel to it and it's just it's that top line gaming likely -- one -- the best for you game and I saw him here.
You -- Beatles fans.
It on all love.
Beatles -- that obviously villas -- you he'll spend.
I'm a parent your parents may help yeah yeah.
Well of course the big news everybody's been waiting for this and what's amazing about Beatles rock me.
Finally we're going to see the announcement.
Here's look at the box on the team.
And even the guitars are you know.
Here here's a look at here's a look at Paul McCartney's is at a base.
We have the left handed one -- going to -- any guitar and -- of George Harrison's -- barker also.
This'll be part of the view of rock in addition to the whole new platform built from the ground up -- -- understand right so this is not going to be something to battle and you divide us.
A whole new game they'll -- -- uneasy look now Cassel has already history 360.
But it it's like initially land the folks -- our minds are developing game we're talking about it if they.
Really trying to separated from the rock band franchise.
But that it has references to connections and come back again.
Bit -- bit so I think people who have played rock band and play Guitar Hero can expect that similar experience if the going to be.
On the microphone on the cars on the grounds -- -- -- them I don't think that deals invited to this this feels we're.
Both of that fielding your best okay -- really war it was a George Martin who want you considered evil so anyway.
But but it's going to play like that but they're saying that -- -- game system behind it may be.
A bit different we'll see I'm expecting some neighbors -- Iraq and so Paul McCartney will be there for the announcements are you a ticket you just still assignment.
And you're gonna go yeah -- intimidating being around -- gamers -- at the mall I'm not my and I'll do.
We have -- besides that the witness here the gamers now I thought I glitter -- -- -- -- scared the women.
I think yeah definitely the gamers get -- because you what's funny at these events is you can have a beautiful women walking you can have beautiful women walking by.
Nobody cares everywhere play it anyway but that it can -- today.
But yet made the thought about the Booth.
This is what -- great things about trades it.
Mark tells about -- -- I'm gonna put this -- Apple.
Three -- you can correct me if I'm wrong here it take it down more they could wear it.
-- yeah yeah yeah a year ago our news editors -- -- -- to -- -- either you some who -- been with them on their technical college which he's got some money with great when you're headed to at a time when you see these women there ahead of time they're all way up 21.
But when they come from do you know where these girls come from what local model with a -- a -- And so they bring them out and they hand them but this fact sheets like that morning.
But -- -- Modern warfare two.
First person shooter we go through if you want to hear any more deep information.
Do you even talk to the -- behaves well I.
See of the game.
-- -- It's part of my I think about it but if you photos on the power.
Yes a lot of fun out there -- is nothing will be surprises that you're going to see that you think might shock you come out of nowhere I mean.
This is we've seen some of the pictures we've seen a lot of spot shots we talked about Sony Microsoft what about Nintendo -- -- -- from Nintendo.
We mind that of the questions is that what people are gonna want from Nintendo that's been a pain that Nintendo has their fortunes have risen.
They wound up upsetting a lot of bare hard core -- snap -- -- -- -- those.
If you're saying let me I'll I'll go back to an article and and quotes from -- -- -- -- -- She's one of the executive for Nintendo as -- says he's going to be up on stage and I think duties Kate was going to be there.
That -- released before hopefully these going to be candy says he's going to be up on stage she's gonna be.
She says she's not going to try to snowboarding but she's gonna be talking about some of the the new games that are conference and go.
But as you and I was -- yesterday.
They did a good job in targeting.
Marks children to break and Andy and we've seen a lot of video at the senior homes with the people pulling her and -- electable.
But it's those hardcore gamers who really liked you know natural way to who like to some of the games in -- is on the -- what.
Is -- enough for them to just release a new Mario game and that sort of what's our appetite and keep this around but it really.
Most people -- would -- to audiences for him kind of it.
I think it's three potential audiences there's the the folks you just talked about the more than mark -- on the -- -- -- -- -- -- find -- playing games.
There's there's Mario -- -- fans who is much is intent of hates them as soon as and you Mario resolved as intruders to attack.
Here come back but it -- of people who like stuff like modern warfare today to show up there in Nintendo's really found a way to bring those people -- the fold the people who like.
Grand -- thought that I think if you like bio shock like.
Where on the Nintendo platform are the games for them.
And so when Kenny gets up on stage that at this C three you know she's probably his -- some of the memories of her getting out there lassie re talking about her Mother's Day cards.
-- better snowboarding.
And those types of things and try to show that Nintendo has something for.
The hardcore fans have my question is.
Which hardcore fans they are in the addressing.
Did die hard core Nintendo franchise fans who really we're never going to go away anyway -- -- those fans they've never been able to get to which of the fans that really want.
The kinds of games like GTA.
And halo that has huge audiences and -- have -- they happen is that part of the problem though because you're playing this platform to.
-- kids right if you position yourself as a family friendly -- -- hat he's still promote these other types of franchises.
Without alienating your your -- yeah differently and it went almost sad to see but that just from a mobile sizes.
That Microsoft -- -- you know could this be their back door into the modern gaming market you we've only seen like the interface.
And how good he can handle what video and pictures and music so far.
But you know I'm hoping that at.
Mobile games even if its capital -- -- need to do something.
-- it that's a good question we're getting it gets that second.
You remind -- but -- -- some credit -- from top to you hear you have your.
Yeah percent of have you chat room coming in here if he wants I love the type of people come on here if you ask for Megan Megan if you don't go to -- Street united ticket Connecticut.
That's good even writes about Booth -- that we're talking -- Henderson and Henderson Nevada since before the truth -- the cops.
Make a poker run and then dump them off at the front door come on fifth.
Well how -- remotely.
Robert -- of him.
Okay Nevada and clearly that's exactly into the interactive look happen.
Another another you know here from that someone from -- this is.
Would you what do you think the chance of united Metal Gear Solid game being announced that the new Konami.
Web sites oh it's the nominee could you -- part.
Should -- -- -- -- what you know the -- don't think -- as well because what could become and how often happens -- attack.
Not related video games and that's it that it could -- beloved -- -- Metal Gear Solid franchise he's been teasing for about a month that he had and you probably coming.
For the last few weeks if this teaser site up and I think this countdown -- -- -- and not a countdown and he's still blurry picture.
And then you know instantly don't just want want it does yeah were working closely it is the whole Hebert.
The blog -- government released a right -- -- -- Let's get but he but he should want to hear you that it -- they're teasing involving trickling out bit by bit.
It's gonna show us something -- have something to finally on valid need three.
And the question we asked -- of the socket is.
When does -- teasing become too much and when do -- fans.
Turn on costly being teased with -- -- he gets -- and yes math geniuses yeah anything.
See that I think that it really depends what product that once -- -- the -- and it comes out like I feel at the end we'll stay.
No matter what as long -- a product read about the palm -- for example we're Newbury -- drip drip drip -- how much more news from we get on Catholic.
Yes they -- -- there's good news about this like.
Okay we're -- talk about the buttons like what importantly.
People turning on it because it's that you're.
Partly as you know especially when there's like -- -- let's -- -- -- -- any news is exciting and everybody wants to jump on -- right get.
There's a picture -- -- on a tree you know that was news but I got it was in the wild.
It quickly SpinRite on its its case there was a single count him leading up to something -- -- they said.
You know -- they said it.
But in this case -- -- things like -- -- listening JJ Abrams would you like hiding Easter eggs and random different movies and projects in all leading back to loss to we're trying to figure -- -- reasonable doubt it as a seller somehow I was reading and we saw that so weird ingredients all tied to something.
My moms talking about it I don't know it's all this little -- I assume you say it better be good when it comes out of the wasn't running from scratch I -- imagine if you had had a countdown clock -- to have this.
Right how -- you think that would change how people react.
Maybe we give you an option if they feel they've built into -- and pray that courts that sort.
Let's talk about actually let me jump over to we just talked -- -- Nintendo but I wanted to go back to something you brought up about some of the mobile -- this is interesting because of all the developers to.
Are now developing for the iPhone the iPod touch in this whole new.
Do you think we'll likely see a lot of these developers showing -- that you three and is that something we might start to see.
A Zune Booth showing up at 83.
An iPod touch Booth showing up an apple Booth showing up there.
I don't know what apple has faith in three years I don't I don't think.
They don't let go and they've also said of course pulling out of Macworld they're not going to -- -- hearing a lot of trade shows anymore.
Now -- -- have a lot of the big game publishers like DEA.
-- loft which formerly associated with Ubisoft.
They will have they'll be showing iPhone -- there because that's that's what they did it -- Pollyanna but we're 4000 apps on the iPhone or something like I mean.
Most of those people aren't going to be you know.
-- showcase any three threes and expensive show to showcase that we even have beer publishers like Atari.
Couple weeks ago announced that it -- going to be gone we have an interview today top -- with the heads of Atari talking about how -- how they're changing accompany him around.
But I do like you'll see announcements from like -- said some of the bigger publishers you know IKEA -- and I think Metal Gear Solid touch.
It's one of the units but the fact it's expensive for more expensive than 99 cent.
Right typical iPhone game it's -- -- in the top 25 -- it has been there -- right.
So I think that says something about the future of that platform and we see that I thought when you see the iPod touch advertised.
It's usually with games and I think that says a lot about what apple thinks about the future -- it.
Remain the apple -- that way to -- in the iPod touch station all eyes the apps and -- surrounding all of the different displays there.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Michael writes -- Michael Fitzpatrick.
It says who had this text you first come next in 1982 long -- the who.
-- -- -- -- -- Let's talk about will will finish at.
-- that's your point and now we have some video believe the new one.
Take a look at this this is ride from Tony -- And what's different about this one.
Is that what we're talking about having this extra hunk of plastic.
Comes with -- there -- It's plastics skateboard stand on and participate in the game.
Is this the future of gaming here and we're seeing all these becomes plastic.
-- -- -- add on to me if I can if I can plug my my bosses weren't right percent thinner fearless editor in chief of -- talk -- it has.
You try this out has written about the proliferation of these peripherals and the idea is that.
This is the way the people -- selling games.
This is one of the things that they Guitar Hero show worked in the Wii Fit -- where he -- stand on board might -- just.
You this but you know no fancy shot throughout and I -- -- this.
-- -- -- -- You're seeing now is that you know let's say this Xbox-360 camera takes off.
We'll some of developers you know glance -- that idea given that you're having an accessory won't be as necessary.
Yet it's a question with the third party out of sufferers find other ways to have -- -- in the building this in making it if you're making up proprietary Steve Borden and sinks with the Xbox.
In the media on the facial environment is also wrapped around it that way but when does become too embarrassed -- they have cut.
Brittany was up Michael over your place her on a skateboard and wanted to get outside and go skateboarding prevalent because if you if you have my wife my governor senator and before you know.
I'll -- that what's wrong here you know -- take the whole thing away from ending -- the negatives than you do that we think yoga like in the privacy of your own home I think do it out of public view but I will yes I think -- we've -- -- the famous video of the the Wii -- girl -- -- -- sitting -- -- His girlfriend on the Wii Fit balance board and underwear.

TAK use dot com area.
Could copy dot com and you can you can follow us any minute today we have stories for you typically we've got an expert -- every twenty minutes thirty minutes anyway.
That the most gaming coverage story -- -- Market had a question for you David north and -- believe we I had a hands on on boxing in this particular.
Laptop a few weeks ago.
Is -- not sure you've seen newly released him aside X 340 laptop and again my hands on one this week I love it very sharp very thin is more than enough power for what I need we did and on boxing here on the show what do you think about it.
-- in our review we like the price first and foremost so 899 for something that's MacBook Air light.
It's really good.
And I think one thing that a lot of people don't realize is that with a 6340 you're getting an hour or battery life that you are -- because.
Apple made a sort of a conscious decision to go with performance over -- but this particular -- because they decided to go with beefed up graphics on the inside.
There's things that he didn't like about this -- -- would be that the keyboard we had a pre production models of the keyboard with a little proxy it and read it felt a little bit Gypsy a little bit cheaper than than the -- But I think in terms mean when that culminated last week -- you know if Microsoft wanted to view their next laptop hunters it should featured this -- That -- points who is certainly a price point and.
Yeah -- -- netbook user what do you use of violence you like this guy actually had conversations I love it I think it's great.
It uses -- the -- -- -- the lifestyle -- and lifestyle.
The -- but -- Finland would ask you how to use it in in a leather clutch also.
You like it -- I think it's great I mean for me it's I mean it's the portability that that they that they.
Market and I I think it just just going to continue -- Kia mini -- -- we're gonna get we're gonna get price point that we haven't seen.
I expect there.
The X 340 is 799 because her 8989.
-- same price is below the base for the Sony Vaio.
240 isn't technically netbook because that you guys that you will be.
If you press the easy button but it uses a new processor from I won't do for you in German soldier -- that -- ultra low voltage processor via an atom processor which is even.
Lower power lower cost is and all of the netbooks and most of the bestselling netbooks are about 400 dollars were still talking about how.
The price of the Senate side and some of the best netbooks that we see -- dollar price let's talk about one of the big stories that we Time Warner backing off of -- finally.
-- this was the big merger love affair back in the year 2000 we have the whole dotcom bubble this was the height of at all when of course.
Time Warner bought it well for like 174.
Billion dollars back -- -- just was mine Bob.
Palm finally the other day deciding the -- the -- board Time Warner board saying you know what I love fears over we're getting rid of this thing was this.
What took so.
But at -- marriage yeah really really I mean -- I think that they thought I think that they thought that you know.
The Internet with this overtake media what we're seeing out that he would actually coming getting you know taking over certain parts the Internet and I mean I'm.
Thank god that I -- really they've.
Do you use AOL.
Call yet I was aware are you -- me get.
I think -- your cabinet family out you know it's like.
Tied up with my whole family and this is my Brothers and but hell that's an elegantly operates it today.
But it's Megan marks now because basically I thought mark Megan -- I don't know yeah.
Don't mail account my parents' attic and you when you hear over the house.
You hear that you -- you've got mail.
Gravestone you're -- -- background I think that they still use that sound like -- -- -- it's sort of want to say like here you can do you can access the Internet without going through this four dollars.
Other places you -- its type in the address.
Don't understand that you'll like this is how I get on the Internet.
I use -- Really what I understand it should become more sure about MySpace are you an idea and think that we started we're.
And Ella Ella -- never had the clear that what it was going after it into the content company -- that.
I mean and the Google I mean if they had -- -- just focus on search of something like that that would have.
Gotten them to be competitor but there was nothing yeah right that's right advertising.
They don't remember getting that disks in the mail me I think god once a week you get those disks in the mail and -- -- -- cases and I -- hundred free hours of dial up whatever was.
Where is -- go from here we look at the states where -- -- From.
As a content company they still have a lot of strong brands looking gadget isn't about a a lot of people don't know -- -- ever forget.
I think as a content company they have a future but in terms of accessing the Internet are being sort of like an on -- mean that -- -- over yeah.
You can always get -- contact your post but the you know this -- seven.
Stretcher but foxnews.com -- -- work on Twitter lets talk about Microsoft we talk a little bit about the zoom HD finally got a real official release that it is coming this -- the news Sunnis -- here are some pictures of this thing.
It does look pretty credible poll LED touch screen.
Now let me ask you this is we'll talk about the palm -- the second for small what are your impressions of this thing.
Just looking at this have you.
Here expects in this thing.
I know that it has -- three point 30 let this play you know it is really impressive technology -- that you brightness and can't vibrant beautiful with an extra expense.
It is that we haven't heard a thing about pricing or capacity.
But in the next generation walkman is also an analyst display but it I think we can all sort of guess that the next iPod touches off.
-- -- suspects I think it's gonna come down to what's the user experience going to be like what are the differences.
Features that it -- that one is HD radio which I think you can one -- but it also has potential in terms of being able tax.
Them of them later and then also you know this is really the first portable HD radio in your pocket so imagine what -- -- stations might use to promote this platform.
In exchange for him from Microsoft having experiences.
-- Potential synergies you said stick that was your description.
I think that -- I think I think it's incredible.
It's it's an incredible four or -- foray into.
That -- went -- but very you know all I mean if you -- I think that especially for you.
What we can get on what was it that I've been trying to get all went a little bit more information from all expect Microsoft thought that they like.
Do you think we'll see anything this week with them announcing it maybe some more information from Microsoft with this and we have an announcement now but he and he -- -- they said that that does change she is going to have a pregnancy reader talking about ways that the service.
There -- service connecting it to the Xbox-360.
You know if -- said it was going to be gaming service that would be you know one of the biggest things.
Happening three -- haven't gone up -- that Microsoft you -- connecting this with Xbox in some capacity to the marketplace that particular last year.
Any trees where they Netflix partnership was announced and I really successful -- 360.
-- that perhaps the biggest announcement question.
Think -- the one that that -- the best for them I think they thought they had bigger announcement that the it was excited.
On the circle back -- -- -- PlayStation or the Nintendo getting Netflix reported net.
Some rumors that.
They were gonna do so that would Nintendo but I don't think.
No -- haven't heard much for PlayStation doing that I mean Sony has their own video store already.
Intel has done some -- with television streaming service in Japan.
Today they might do it but.
I don't see it as being -- library for Nintendo Sony meaning it is get a box cheaper for me but yeah I think to play in space.
Well I mean here's in his.
I think -- -- -- bring up this argument which is hey I might buy a -- and -- Get rid of my iPhone and buy a home -- So because we know that's about eight gig eight gigabyte capacity in the home pre.
Still carrying two devices but do you think this is a movement maybe -- -- from Apple's iPhone next week.
Here you know maybe but I I think if anything a lot of people are looking at the next generation iPod touch and looking at applications like Skype.
You know ground and I used my iPod touch that's my only device that apparently you know -- with it.
And you think things about devices like the mine fire that recently came -- right it would -- allows you to recently re broadcast at three G signal as Wi-Fi to let you -- -- going Wi-Fi bubble and I -- log into your network sitting next to you fuel my -- rights are working on the story right now about how practical is that and you know so what's that you can use that as an HD -- yeah I'm not on the -- device guy and I think people are thinking of buying the pre.
I think it's a little bit over do you have you use an iPhone right.
So would you are you thinking about making -- switch that.
All -- I am just because just to try I mean the thing if it looked so -- I mean anything.
Credible marketing on it -- me with its super super fast but they're learning from apple -- and you know I have not seen device that has a better you -- that apple and but I do love what -- always have I like the -- It was easy flat but he's given you live and hear what user interface user interface I guess is what we're -- you're just this ruling -- -- there aren't -- -- you did you know exactly you know.
Nobody and yet this scrolling and basically just how your how.
-- someone uses that.
The -- know so much easier for us to see why I gotta get this out of having news and Elaine also had an affair.
So but I I didn't really I think I've I've always loved how -- feed and house consumer like how friendly.
He lies and pots and -- now.
I bet if they're hearing the same time I think a lot of people are going to look at the pre they're going to like the multitasking.
All in the same week -- -- Work or look like the iPhone if he even if you don't have an iPhone you.
Use one way and as intuitive as this devices once you start using it.
A -- going to say oh wait where is the main menu with all my icons and in the fact that you have to use gestures to get there and I think my eternal initially for some people but I think overall.
What they've done is pretty equivalent mass because I don't know -- does that support eighteen team.
Bonds break that actually going to be action against for an experiment that's in the -- -- allowing people who've gotten.
Their iPhone there tied up in any contract right -- -- -- -- -- AT&T and Verizon say that they're getting.
Watch the pre next year disparate as exclusivity through the end of this year you know that beginning next year it'll happen just by way going to be other web OS devices that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I have Blackberry you know -- I just got it yesterday.
He's got -- yesterday national switching for you.
Now I just upgraded it from my -- flip book and found little black.
That's the way I.
I what I thought I needed that I -- -- that the QWERTY keyboard I couldn't cavs considering don't iPhone.
But I try typing on my -- iPhone a few other things and couldn't do it needed fiscal Q were you it's been pretty.
I feel like I feel -- Apple has created and actually lost on investors.
And how quickly you know we've now -- people -- If it -- create -- that habit where we reflects we are now.
They're trying to patent the at a pageant -- -- that you're using.
So we'll figure to -- -- -- cuts and on about how he figures exactly green and they're going to get a whole bunch of patent issues because these patents go back 100 years and some good point out of -- from 1905 it has some sort of gesture around something.
You know I gave you the finger.
Thanks incident that somehow patented and -- on the finger yeah.
I'm curious what's going to happen with with -- For the next few weeks and whether or not because the people who bought a first generation iPhone their contracts are up right around the time to come up here.
Paul could -- -- begun got this phone out there about a month ago.
Then you would have had people who were seriously considering you know -- you know what I'm gonna wait three months for apple to do it but they're going to do -- job now.
-- -- releasing it.
A few days ahead of WW DC which is worldwide developers worldwide developers conference out of Cupertino Apple's headquarters.
What do you think we're -- -- out of the iPhone the new hardware 32 gigabyte sixteen gigabyte.
You have already businesses through that a software and yeah enhancements that -- it.
And a half to get things like universal search is a huge for me like for me like a -- -- worthless and I can answer my emails you know like the stuff like that's really important on the hardware side.
I think there's a lot there's an expectation of going to see it faster processor.
Longer battery life and all led display.
Those are some but he.
You use three point oh what are your impressions of the new three point.
Well the the first but even.
That pictures without it says it here.
You abilities at all it's cut -- use.
What on what.
And an -- -- -- Text pictures -- It yet I mean -- just.
But what I'm hearing those that it will come -- necessarily that might announce.
I can't -- it might launch until July so these are living in -- yet that it wants to be announced that -- having -- concede that we are all standing in lines covering it.
Yeah about a lot do you think Paul -- garner that much excitement the -- I'll be curious to see people are actually.
Email me right Ellen you know you're planning a standing in line or Twitter me I'm curious for the palm -- having -- out they're actually going to buy a palm pre do you think where it's going to have that seems sort of you know -- -- -- fanned them out.
There I feel it doesn't have the same -- the end -- it.
Thank anti united certain had a certain bill but I was very very -- -- it goes -- and then once they tied it out at a -- well -- about the fact that if it.
For the battery life to -- yeah.
-- -- They're going to be really short lines it's that was supplied with a -- Rather hearing from sprint CEO -- -- -- you know look we're 60000 I think that was the word we're paying 60000.
Was going to be their initial run of I don't they're going to have enough of we're hearing that perhaps one of her best -- These are some of the initial rumors -- I don't know if that's just so that best -- can say they have them.
-- this is similar to that we yes -- sensitivity to me because of short supply and how long does that collapse and whether or not the other big story with -- iPhone this week it's Verizon.
Will Verizon be getting some type of an iPhone we're -- for a number of analysts actually I was speaking my friends and apple who very tight lipped about it but we're saying that look.
Just get ready for some Verizon's.
-- what does that mean does that mean we're gonna see a small iPhone perhaps an iPhone nano for 99 dollars.
I don't personally think so I don't have to play in that space and cheap space.
Or could it -- it is media -- that we were just talking about a larger sort of netbook form thing that Verizon might have a three G interest.
Yeah I don't think that would happen this year because you want to be you want to tie it to their next generation network which will be LT I think the same thing there's an iPhone but that.
That creates a problem right because Verizon has so that they're not really going to fully deployed LT TE which is there.
Four G technology until the latter half 2010.
So that's a long time to wait to to have a halo device like the iPhone so.
I was them -- would seriously considered trying to you know get the EV DO or three G version in this it is possible because what they have set it with the -- of the records that.
In the next six months we're gonna see two devices from -- that storm too which I know you've got talked about right war and the pump free so they said they're going to happen.
So but the question is.
They do they need the iPhone to really remain competitive with eighteenth -- in the device I think -- -- You beat these guys want it's when it -- right -- The iPhone -- rise at -- because.
Yeah ports -- Issues mean spirit is the worst customer service.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- immediately -- not complain.
That's one of the reasons why sprint has -- so many customers is actually particularly because of their customer service and they're they're working to fix it and and I think you're gonna see what the pre you're gonna -- -- -- -- -- that going to be well trained on the -- in this sort of there attempt to win customers.
You can't play any games.
Yeah you physically.
-- you might like this BI new iPod nano spotted perhaps in the wild Atlantic willingness take a look at this this is your original.
And -- -- another photo that actually has a camera there see that little tiny camera on the lower Maurice -- So and a wider screen display it Kevin flip back the other pictures -- that's -- see the screen there and now go to the new one.
There -- wider wide screen and a camera built in the back of it likely to be just two megapixel camera on the iPod -- these things are such a hot seller.
I don't know I mean.
Do you think it's worth it's that can happen in there.
Into the camera you know I just want one I'm sorry I -- I have so many got home it's like.
Different things but I just want it all one thing at one it like.
I have a dream of having a mobile device that every day and and -- happened it's gone out.
Yeah I think it's certainly helps in terms of adding more features but at the same time I think Apple's biggest competition is themselves with the iPod touch -- so much for me.
When I I was apple averages.
Decrease the price on the touching get as many people using that and their apps it's possible mean this is nice for what sort have a low cost.
Device with this the screens you can actually -- your music as opposed to the shuffle speculate that touches sort of -- the future there.
Yeah well I -- but the thing is you know with the iPod -- 79 dollars and things sold -- Pretty hot cakes and I didn't think it was going to -- and what's that people can afford us the things we've talked about.
Different animal -- people.
-- can switch yourself on reform months trite thing.
Lot of those people -- game harbor phones.
They beat can't afford to get things we're talking about now this year they get that things are talking about now two years -- -- that goes back the line and and so much more successful selling stuff -- generations machine.
More people report that even their expensive for the real -- finally coming.
You know to be Apple's abuse dating my iPhone fix this silence all but broke off which -- -- twice about your new phone twice in that yours broken.
-- hope they fix that thing but I've -- people getting their stuff switched -- I saw.
A knife and iPod like six years ago she is -- just suddenly working.
It's still exist I mean I just because that would in this gadget world constantly -- and so sometimes forget.
