3D TV: It's here! Who cares?

Culture
[ Music ] ^M00:00:08 >> Molly: Hi, I'm Molly Wood and welcome to the Buzz Report. The show about the tech news that everyone is talking about. This week it's AT&T being evil, as usual, new stocking tools on Facebook and Twitter and 3D TV's are here. [sound effect] Well, let's begin with the gadget of the week. The gadget of the week is the new Cisco CRS 3, which is a router so amazing that this is the first time a router has ever been the gadget of the week or gotten nearly as much press coverage as this one is getting. >> Get ready for super fast Internet speeds. >> And you know it's a really landmark day for the industry. >> From telepresence to the flip. >> A new router that the company says will change the Internet. >> Forever change the Internet. >> Molly: Now, granted this router is pretty amazing. It can support 322 terabits per second, which is enough to like let everyone in China make a video call. You could download every movie ever made in 4 seconds. The entire Library of Congress in 1 second. So lucky Insider has this slideshow, it's fascinating. The CRS3 will cost $90,000. AT&T's already been testing it and it's kind of a first time that we've all been this excited about a router. Although for $90,000 you can also apparently buy the first commercially available jetpack, [sound effect] so, you know, that's a little more exciting. In other gadget news this week AT&T's first Android phone goes on sale Sunday the Motorola Backflip. Wait, don't get so excited. AT&T has pretty much ruined it. First they loaded it up with a bunch of AT&T crapware and they replaced the default Google search engine on an Android phone with Yahoo. Then they changed the software so that you can't install any apps that don't come through the official Android market. That includes apps that might let you say tether your phone for Internet access on the go or apps that ironically would let you remove AT&T's free installed crapware. Oh AT&T I do have to respect your consistency. Moving on, the 3D TV's are here. Panasonic's 3D equipped televisions rolled into stores this week and Best Buy and Panasonic teamed up on a special bundle that included a Blu-Ray player and one pair of $150 3D glasses. At this big event in Manhattan they also drummed up the cute little dual income no kids' couple who obliged the cameras and dropped $3,100 on that bundle. No word on whether they bought another pair of glasses or if he's just gonna watch it alone. >> A complete 3D -- >> Molly: Meanwhile Samsung, Visio, Sony and LG all have new 3D TV's coming out between spring and summer of this year so; you know, yeah, go 3D, Avatar, whoa. Actually here's my prediction, these TV's will do about as well this year as Avatar did at the Oscar's. Oh, yeah, the world is just not ready. In other things we're not ready for GO Location is the web's favorite new over share. Sources say Facebook is close to rolling out features that will let you include your latitude and longitude in your status updates. And this week Twitter briefly turned on GO Location on its site too. It sounds like broadcasting your exact coordinates will be the hot trend at this year's South by Southwest Interactive Festival and look for it to be, I don't know, the next Twitter, I guess. But just to be clear the only time I am broadcasting my exact location to anyone is if I need a helicopter to rescue me. Facebook, don't even think about opting me into that crap. And, finally, let's have a look at what's clogging the tubes. That sound you heard around Tuesday of this week was the world's largest simultaneous nervegasm as the trailer for Tron Legacy hit the web. Rest assured it looks both awesome and terrible. >> Allen: 2 nights before he disappeared he came to my house. He said he was about to change everything in science, medicine, religion. He wouldn't have left that Sam. He wouldn't have left you. >> Sam: Allen, you're acting like I'm gonna find him sitting there working. Just, hey kiddo, lost track of time. >> Allen: Wouldn't that be something? ^M00:04:25 [ Music ] ^M00:04:35 >> Molly: Also, wow, I've got to say that was a long trailer. I mean do you guys remember Tron having a storyline? Who knew? And that's the Buzz Report for this week everyone. I'm Molly Wood and thank you for watching. ^M00:04:46 [ Music ]
