Inside CNET Labs 45: I get a giant smile on my face

Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry in the episode!

Ace's smile is a lot like mine, except maybe slightly less dorky.

So many of us use Yahoo 360 these days that it's become almost a mainstay of our daily culture--wait what? You don't use it? You've never even heard of it? OK, I'll be honest, I'd never heard of it either until we recorded this week's podcast. Apparently, it's huge in Vietnam though. Dong talks about how it's shutting down and I wonder why I should care.

If there's anything I'm good at, it's waxing nostalgia about my childhood. And by "good" I mean I can talk about it to no end. Here, I get another chance to do so about old laser disc games and I pass the savings on to you. By savings, I mean white-hot, pure entertainment!

Live in Japan? No. Well this next story may make you wish you did. Dong talks about a university in Japan that's giving away free iPhones to students to keep track of their attendance. Talk about disposable income. These guys know we're still in a global recession don't they? Apparently not.

Also, in this episode, I talk about my very abridged experience with The Sims 3 at the Apple Store; how DRM is turning you and your children into thieving, brain-eating beasts; Dong's salute to the King of Thailand; and some impressive NYC breakers.

Whew! Now that that's out of the way, back to my E3 news conferences!
