The 404 697: Where we have an out-of-office reply (podcast)

Justin is still sick, and Jeff is a runaway bride, so it's just Wilson today. Don't worry, because it's not another "cheese stands alone" episode. Natali Del Conte and David Carnoy come in to save the day.

On today's show, we get a first-hand perspective on the new Barnes and Noble Nook Color from CNET Executive Editor David Carnoy. It might be the poor man's iPad, but David thinks it's a worthy competitor to the Amazon Kindle. Natali still prefers her iPad, and Wilson wonders whether consumers will choose the Nook Color or the iPod Touch.

After the break, we get to something sort of scary: Rachael Ray in 3D! That's right. For some people like Wilson, 3D is a mildly nauseating experience, but combined with the queen of faux bubbly's talk show, it might be vomit-inducing. We think the next innovation after 3D is going to be the return of Smell-O-Vision.

Finally, if you want your own copy of David Carnoy's "Knife Music," leave a comment, and we'll randomly choose a winner. Tune in tomorrow for the exciting conclusion to how Wilson makes it through another show alone.
