We've arrived at another Del Conte Thursday and we're all getting Buzzed to celebrate, which could mean one of three possible scenarios:
1. We use Google Buzz to see what our West Coast friends are up to at 8 a.m. on a Thursday morning.
2. We log on to AT&T's new Buzz.com to find the closest bodega that carries Yerba Mate, aka "weed tea."
3. We plan to get sloshed on Bonnaroo Buzz, a new coffee-flavored ice cream with English toffee pieces and whiskey caramel swirls.
Which one is it? I'm not just going to tell you; you have to listen to find out, dummy.
Speaking of food, there's plenty to complain about as we run down the 10 most irritating types of restaurant patrons, even though I've been known to pilfer a few free saltine crackers in my time. Natali also confesses that she's constantly asking waiters to help her make a decision only to go with the dish that they don't recommend, and Jeff can't seem to understand the difference between fake Mexican and authentic Puerto Rican food.
Hulu just announced plans to roll out its new subscription-based service starting as soon as May 24. For $9.95 a month, you'll gain access to premium content called Hulu Plus that could include the entire back catalog of popular shows like "Lost," "Glee," and "Saturday Night Live," to name a few.
The room agrees that we'd all happily pay $10 for the extra episodes, especially considering it costs that much for a monthly unlimited text messaging plan. The only visible downside to consider is the gross amount of time I already spend in Hulu's capable hands, so I'll take this opportunity to say a fond farewell to my co-workers, friends, and family. If you need me, I'll be in my room.
We're getting a lot of quality Calls From the Public, but we still need more callbacks! That's when you give us a ring at 1-866-404-CNET and say, "This is (your location) from (your name) and you're listening to The 404, the show where (insert random comment here)." It's quick, easy to do, and if it's good we'll definitely play it on the air!
