Ep. 23: Hipster depotWe get up-close-and-personal with an itty-bitty boombox and speak our peace on some cheapo-but-neato Star Wars earbuds.
It's Tuesday November 2 and you're listening to watching very -- I don't. I'm Donald bell. I'm Eric Franklin speaks at most inappropriate times -- you mister and again once again we deputy you know Gonzales. On the -- on the ones in cues. I think that the land back -- it yeah. The wheels that feel that there -- wouldn't be installed -- that these rock. And the news. You've -- how it now. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Hand now you're in for the biggest iPhone. In the world. A cable size 58 inch. Capacity of touch screen. IPhone table and -- say you want it now. There is absolutely -- means that for mobile laughs. To be run on something with this thing yeah I agree it needs to -- -- fall on like computers and I am I gonna trumpet right here. I. What does the new this is the multi -- into words -- Angry -- I on the table even though I feel that now you want to be -- -- and -- and all of this. Well giant scrabble -- -- yeah there's no price on this. It's just that proof of concept -- maybe they'll -- this but am. There's a couple interesting things that are happening here one is that if taking -- video out. Directly from the which aside from Steve Jobs -- the -- iPhone out on his keynote. On stage for his keynote and everything's on -- -- do. Don't get the home screen everything one for one. On -- Yeah cases pretty -- this -- so technically impressive. Newton elm and we've got a video here port do you wanna play the video and that in the back it is but how practical though I mean yes sir and birds out. The wrong way. Yes me -- you'd have it tilted toward new meaning that you you know and well yet it may -- iPad version and it's essentially it's this super high you can use this to -- -- ranked. You can be -- -- to be able time you think through cable face yeah it will face like that -- all. I think -- there would be some interesting applications. That I mean it's an -- -- -- apps literally. On the table -- would be much where do you see this table and so that's how this is that I mean Microsoft. This kind of just jumps right up to speed with. That effort except. And it -- surface of all like writing a fall. Now when I do with Microsoft surface is let me virtual card games and painting applications related. There's not a whole lot to -- -- it and gave guide you know a table sized. Capacity of touch screen table that can run. That hundreds of thousands of apps that people party from the mr. but I thought the whole myself I answer this thing was like it would like. Two other things like if you had Europe if you place your phone on top of it. They collect pull information from the phones like that you please click here I years. Card you just put your credit card on the table and pay for drinks and I think in the total proof of concept world yeah but in the actual ones that ultimately in my Vegas. -- -- actually have them in a few different. -- awaited distract people and I'll -- -- pretty -- I would actually captives. I mean what a pizza you order it or water content like 500 dollars and it. This table -- the end Cheryl B in and out. Ten dollars cure anything to play angry birds on -- -- and that would be cool. I'll admit -- -- I mean I don't know how they getting competitive. And that's their doing this like some weird work ram you're not seen on the footage -- -- through the night. And overhead camera. That's. -- tracking movement not the actual. Cable itself you being here this and so -- -- I just think it's it's it's amazing in and of itself that there is a 58 inch capacity is a Levy back. Surface. Dvds. It could be smoke and here's. It looks real enough -- -- -- -- and in fact that's. I like it I'm betting that I have a little political stuff is at our brains something that does have a price and it's actually the arguably much more practical. Arguably not that practice. -- This area in my -- news solar powered keyboard wireless keyboard. That. Recharges. With the power of the universe. How of the shining its its solar energy right into the keyboard gets kind of likened calculator here's why -- they want this is it gives me excuse to put my my keyboard out and directs them so that the germs can be like. -- -- and then heated up. A bit ultraviolet light -- militant that some -- My keyboard is disgusting when I'm trying to -- people and this is mean excuse and it. Pick it up and check it out and -- -- -- and if that. -- -- I don't think that's the -- of keyboards. That 79 dollars and its its is it on the sun god. -- So yeah. I guess it all depends and if you can actually get it into this and and at night how well it keeps the start button -- -- If you're doing some lights and you know -- Marathon workout sessions it is -- its solar only. -- -- -- Yeah -- and what it is. One and you know Alaska will have the it's -- that he -- special live there now while he has. A -- was in Alaska are probably spending on and the problem. -- I've been there but it can entirely in the hypothetical. -- I think I actually like us and hand out as and I want more things that I can stick in my window and recharge. Keyboards. You know phones share. Apple pies. Rechargeable 50. Both schools and I don't know what it really as a whole as I we don't we don't know we don't know do -- The -- -- -- Perfect -- pick a new window and recharge. And sanitize -- school in the agrees with it and I don't know what we don't do it. The really makes you think you. -- Cameras. Old school -- There's a company called. Loma actually it was and then it will mark -- -- and they make basically. Throwback cameras he can find them in Urban Outfitters and other hipster. Where kids decayed still use the film and that you do that and it'll -- You mean Urban Outfitters yes there is it small version of Urban Outfitters like the that. I mean really should be American Apparel -- American Apparel -- -- crap like this so. Have to be here and if it what would it be you would be like EM. What's with the that. -- version -- alternating beating the old you urban. Hipster defense did you. But how would you -- But there's those that's make them to better though it's cheaper than the urban if it's that it -- that -- make. When he dollar teacher. Of -- more ironically I -- I think it makes him an order. At first. Re elect for the first couple -- days and in this -- and Felder it's. I -- when the air when you find you -- -- though you'll find in the pop you'll probably find new nifty rocket rocket camera. When the fine folks -- -- -- I actually found is pretty dope it's not that -- now but. And there's anything it. I thought answered you -- with those to be a cheaper version of -- out that -- -- pretty expensive gas well that he'd been there. -- now and then I wearing tweed right now -- Not and that -- you pay in self esteem if someone who's over the age of 25 is it's not worth. Up blocking and it. This is a critical camera for anyone who really feeling like -- that that that urged ago and paid man. Get the film back in the camera. The they films now -- yes even if the process it. And it's the cool thing about this -- old Ryan is that it exposes the entire. Film so that even the film's rockets yeah action here part of you know when -- protein and there. Get exposed path that they get that whole. Old time -- time the full way. Nineteenth Wendy's -- Chapman's. Give me give you is complete control over the when you're dancing that they can move it over just a little bit moved back look both at home. -- all those kind of the in camera -- tricks. Of course you know -- -- ten dollar app in your own will do the same thing right back -- if you're if you feel like you'd get a little more hipster. Street cred with that the report. Like muscle tomography that -- it's like its most cheapest all plastic. My -- -- lion -- and quality purchased at the her. When I mean he felony -- is -- cred owned and it's you know. Editor art school. And then get in the weeks worth of notoriety. 89 dollars. It looks pretty else to be -- -- -- for next year if you've got like AM. Costume that's more like via steam donkey and -- -- -- like. Appropriately steam on camera. Nine. Don't -- most things don't -- If there is just the look and his. What about and I've been talking too much somebody. Aleman try -- which -- anybody. Now I'm excited he's here about -- hey that looks cool it looks awesome and I say like it's nice I came in is ones in its its special effects. Bad analogy yeah and then of course he had Jeff -- if that the debt and that it is candidate it's not Jeff Bridges is the computer generated young version objective can I. I'll take this one. For those who want to cash in the hipster cred. You can actually buy for -- 150 dollars a giant Tron wall mural complete with. Authorized trying. You're mural is there anything digital well this fixed by -- a little time team want. And here is in some port it. That that can is what's important it certainly I mean a nice that's fortunate kids are KFC's. Because the edits in his view into action news reading any body back. In this room who might be the opposite -- it's a running screen. -- -- now I'm -- at night. They're gonna think that's the cool look at me well you know slightly in it and edit it at night you're coming out in your full. Like you know -- -- the illuminated Tron outfit. -- it's our problem then I figured you've you'll however you would have given an incredibly awesome body. I would much prefer to see if -- -- well on the -- that something like black silk -- on the bed. They like frankly say that both. That's the polar ice -- -- asked to jailbreak apps are -- out of there. But they don't unless flagrant three he explained ronning -- -- the united regulars and -- directors that -- anyway. And I think firfer totaled frontman is not the most -- not. I. Man. -- and -- The Mediterranean. -- -- in the movie you I want one more movies to do this. I won't help -- be paid yeah. What events -- -- hours with a sandwich -- about it at like Italian recognized kind of like garlic. Villa villa assignment and then my. Shortly Robert. You're gonna get Oprah show you that the movie diagnoses which is the connected some some when there's gotten -- -- to make me the book popular program. I'm sure it was an Oprah's Book Club. After reading it I'm absolutely certain she finished it. I did I finished -- yeah that's it meanwhile the -- I kind of skimmed the -- section. Think this is making me comfortable. Well -- -- buddhism so it's not like you know she's so it's it's not like super organized religion is more boring. So knowing you you -- -- -- -- I was the first part it's got me that's what I mean I think that it's added that this is by Arafat section of curriculum. And it really did get me -- -- -- And the thing is a great time for a break from there out of out -- I holds up data next week at the next column and I -- that Altman. Reminds me is Google -- life. Is that this and now. I know that available. In New York you're looking at it there's the review. Under the I don't know this season. And of interest if it lives at times things I think what happened was that they actually a lot of like that channel the content providers pulling out. And not not cooperating the last -- The other if it's not an accident and bad people -- And who might be getting from the pockets might not be thing -- not relate to this. But as an interest in aside at least to me. With teen hunger force -- all op I saw that -- some final I lied in -- this and again violent shake. -- also knows there's love there's a lot of CBS branding and of course there's less -- -- 50 CSI. Those like CBS the hood yet actually I don't have that I don't think so I think that -- from what I've heard I've talked to several tenants. Internet TV app developers and Internet video people and -- is actually relieved. And cooperative. With all of those things so they -- they wanna be. In all these Internet one that's what I was that's what I was kind of figured that exceed its CBS was like practice in my case -- mean -- so -- it's smart TV whatever. Make sure that we get -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Well -- them if I -- operation you wanna talk about little things that go room. Little thing that I like the cars that are that the isn't really million it how to be mean this is I -- go acts. And you brought on the show lastly but we actually in order not have -- big -- and -- via. IPod and the other side here. My cat doesn't let months of an update that we actually there that I. -- too which is this little portable battery powered speaker and we reviewed it and I years ago and it's in our topless for a long time for portable. IPod and iPhone speakers this is the update. And it does my stuff. Here. -- -- It. But out of the charts up -- how -- -- And it does it so this is this is actually not even really technically an update because it's not likely -- -- a -- it's just added on. You you know line or whatever -- this one is. About thirty dollars more. Than 69 -- -- nine. And it has dual headphone Jack. The -- -- -- have and letter in appearance and also if you connects through haven't act TPD easy chain units together now. And you -- -- created in stereo more mysterious sound. And then there is also -- in which they have picked up here and electric guitar -- In in the images on the site so I'd like -- it's -- him studios is an -- abduction. And so they're thinking and amp buy gas than on the go and but -- could also use it for like -- karaoke games on me. You know karaoke outs for -- iPod iPhone speaker on the needs of that the little mini karaoke machine actually any MP3 player will play again. It just as a standard. 3.5 millimeter Jack here. And then there's like. -- paying a flat that in the -- that the players behind here. Others keep it stable yet another accident and there's -- -- -- -- on -- Good neat because it -- with a lot of different players and you can pretty much it up to anything with audio Jack heavy. Yeah it looks bulky about that I think that it wet -- -- -- probably longer the last version came in handy I would recommend all the kind people who want something to take camping -- take a trip yeah. And like if I didn't know what specific ping -- -- plugging into it will be a thing works with. And and it sounds. Yeah that's pretty good surprisingly good for a small player you're -- -- -- -- box yeah. -- -- I think that's pretty cool and it -- looks like a -- Tape like the walkman kind of from outside humans here it -- that goes to exactly you know put in a few different ethnic -- and that. -- -- mingle stemming is the X for extreme. Must be -- it -- time to -- extreme base -- Really now if it really is -- -- pointing on the okay there are something that size and in that -- with decent. In a nearly you don't really get a lot of low and response from anything that's science but for some -- it it does well for its. Good -- San Francisco and I it's only done absolutely yeah. Hello and response that the video for instance. From outside via a great debt compared to me that's a much deprive them. On that note. -- you can shoot with a gun without concert here on laughing squid this morning actually by way of design them. That is -- not the most interesting and -- in the world but it comes would come in theory if this thing actually existed. With a little plastic remote control -- So that when you wanna cannot doesn't actually yeah thieves you exercise your anger at your -- yeah and that's so cool. How does he think. They should make -- old thermal control. -- -- Well serve up for the little -- avenue at this cut this hypothetical company would branch out and other technologies. You have begun for your TV -- yet and you should go to recharge your gun in -- window yeah solar power yes this -- says friendly neighbor. Like a gun in the window yeah -- light gun at completely and I guess though. Yeah you should get that -- -- -- should make it. Did you make it earth. And that something else some people might be interested in getting there is via. Star words your. Which percent -- by. I'm not sure if they're actually crave what church there's -- means. Found a separately but I decided that it with feedback that they realize Natalie you aren't -- with. -- it says you have to do that your view on the Star Wars here I don't even care they sound as bad about what -- but oh my -- -- way cool. -- in Seattle have you done their seventeen dollars I'm sure they sound like utter crap. But they are horrible I'm -- -- now sixteen of those seventeen dollars is gonna George Lucas and god bless. The packaging in the way they having this package is is pretty cool provoke them. I was really hoping though that the Star Wars heads were like sticking out of the ears but -- -- displayed there to head is a useless little in the probably though layers of an opinion as -- the case itself. Many of the body is probably the case I guess that in the by the 2000 is kind of the buds and filled out their their arms -- your honor uninteresting now but. -- color you I would want Evelyn witnesses. The storm trooper does that could you actually get -- arms and as from the talent points at the media recharge. Then I put -- head my window. Not that earbuds that need to be charge it could be that thing you know -- death eaters. And it. And -- would bounce the light on this keyboard. Zenith or through the crowd I want you know -- things about me by -- -- then recharging in the wind that was even paying attention. And anyway they would find me if I came down with a heart attack. In my house for having you mean it's a hard McEntee used to rank at the heart -- -- -- -- this. Today because of the name there was one thing that with an aggressor. Like the name atoms in name it's it's got a lot of. -- and it will come -- and say -- I'm not discuss it by the. Click looks at Harvard on the black beans but that's not lifted button and that's a bit of -- the Mac and she's on the money in the that is the bottom of the pain of the of the -- And. Can be edited the bottom and is like 1 of -- -- -- It looks good to me. That's that another mechanism used was again on the Mac and Mac and -- beat and right made is eight and Mac. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Whining about. I had never won about that high level video that they don't let Java -- and nearby and you can air and -- she is look at. With -- processed in Orange. That's just what looks like me to. It was excellently done away with only the -- -- -- so he didn't humans. Yeah. I don't you know what bothers me the most about the fifth -- to thing. The sun dried tomatoes in the chicken. He got rid of those gravity given that you can seriously I can view the next in those the -- -- a couple rest of science that ministers enough. Parliament -- doesn't sound quite enough -- From a Mac. You know. Like double -- Mac. Path name just -- -- Well time as the show I think sounds wrap it up guys it -- that it okay -- renegade game. Punish have them -- what -- they've added pregame had a great I love it I love the whole Major League aspect of the giants win that whole like.
