It's been too long since we've had Natali on the show! Anti-lactivism, a RoboCop Kickstarter statue in Detroit, a Hawaiian weather report, and a Nintendo DSi XL giveaway are just a few topics of discussion on today's 404 Podcast episode!
It's been so long since Natali has been on The 404 Podcast that we almost forget to call her NM instead of NDC! Fresh from her honeymoon vacation, she stays with us for the entire episode and denounces all those anti-lactivists out there! If we can eat ourselves into a studio infestation, babies should certainly have the right to do so as well.
Moving on, the city of Detroit is finally getting the RoboCop statue it deserves! The idea was spawned after residents felt they needed better representation than rapper Eminem and his ridiculous Chrysler 200 commercial.
So the city started a crowdsourced Kickstarter funding project and reached the $50,000 goal with 37 days left in the contribution window! Everyone that contributes to the fund will receive a personalized digital badge and a name placard on detroitneedsrobocop.com. "I'd fund that for a dollar!" It's the best idea we've heard in a while.
The iTunes Music Store dominates digital music sales, but Sony is taking aim at Apple with its new distribution service called Music Unlimited by Qriocity. Qriocity will feature music from all four major labels, with over 6 million tracks available to stream off Sony's music servers.
Qriocity works on a range of Sony devices like the PlayStation 3, Bravia televisions, and Blu-ray players, but it's also compatible with Macs and PCs. Sony is also planning an Android app for release later this year, and the entire Music Unlimited plan will cost $4 a month for basic service and $10 a month for premium.
After the break, we hear (and see!) back from our buddy Aaron in Hawaii, who gives us a tour of his CBS network affiliate television station--we promise to film a quick tour of our office for you too, kama'aina!
We also play a voice mail from Jeff's dad, our own Sweet Lou Bakalar, who wants to wish himself a happy early birthday and tell us a third of what's on his wish list this year! And don't forget to check out Tuesday's episode of preGame for a chance to win a Nintendo DSi XL!
