It's not every day that The 404 is lucky enough to have one big name celebrity guest on the show, much less two in one episode! We've been waiting all week to chat with Eliza Dushku about her official duties as the official Entertainment Matters Ambassador for CES 2012, which sounds like a fun job!
She's been here hosting parties and covering the show all week, so we'll talk to her about the next wave of 3D televisions and her voice acting work in games like Fight Night Champion and WET, but we'd be doing our listeners and nerds everywhere a disservice if we didn't ask her about her involvement in role in Ghostbusters 3!
We're bummed to see her go after the first period, but we'll jump right back into the top news stories hitting the wire at CES 2012, including a warning about the rise of counterfeit tablets, a laser-equipped robot set up to handle the aftercare needs of the elderly, and of course we'll speak to all of CNET's Best Of CES nominees!
Also, did you know that Apple has secret spies running around the showroom floor? We heard iOS Product Marketing head Greg Joswiak was eyeballed lurking around the Sony booth, and we have reports from at least two vendors that were approached by Apple employees.
Speaking of, CNET just got an invite to an exclusive Apple "Education Event" at the Guggenheim Museum in New York on January 19, and some suspect that we may finally see textbooks added to the iBookstore.
Finally, we pull Wayne Brady onstage with us to chat about his recent EA award for one of the 20 Most Influential Gamers, and what that means exactly for the hundreds of racist kids he faces everyday on XBox Live.
We hope he'll have time to catch our show tomorrow when we'll get a live demo of the Vita itself from John Koller, Director of Hardware Marketing at Sony.
Check out the slideshows below for more photos of us with Eliza Dushku and Wayne Brady, and catch us in person tomorrow at the CNET stage at 1PM for our very last show from CES 2012!
