CNET Live: October 9, 2008

Culture
[ Music ] >>Coming up on CNET live, talking iPods, hmm? Plus using RFID to keep intruders out of your house. What are they doing in there? And for the first time your questions via videos. CNET live starts now. ^M00:00:20 [ Music ] ^M00:00:26 >>Alrighty, it's all coming together now. I'm Brian [Laughter] Cooley. >>I'm Tom Merritt. >>Hey guess who else we've got starting this week? Ladies and gentlemen say hello to BT. >>Look out boys. [ Inaudible discussion ] >>Hey, I like your hat. >>Thanks. >>Yea, you got a liquor cabinet back there? >>Let me look, let me look. [ Laughter ] >>Yea, like you have to look. Brian's Tong now part of CNET live helping us expand the brain trust and I use that term generously. [Laughter] >> You added a brain to it. That was not just trust. >>Right, exactly. In the past it was all just trust. Anyhow, you know how it works. You call, we try to answer. Triple 8-900-CNET and when you call Christine will answer the phone. If you don't hear our voice, don't worry. She's just gonna tell you all the things, you know, to get like set up. You know, like turn down the volume when you get on the air, stuff like that. >>Stuff like that. >>Before we get to your calls and your video questions, remember that? Let's look at a couple of things we crave. ^M00:01:21 [ Music ] ^M00:01:25 >>These are some of our favorite things from the crave blog at crave.CNET.com. Mine involves liquor. >>Yep, I like it. >>Actually it's beer or any liquid. If you are so inclined and you don't drink liquor you could put some kool-aid in here. >>What the >>CNK promotions is now offering thumb drives, customizable with a liquid in the case. >>Can you get it out? >>[Laughter] Probably if you work hard enough you can crack it out. >>Otherwise it's of no use to me. >>You know, the one they show is the one with beer in it. It's a Budweiser USB drive. You could use these to color them up. Put that little ocean, you know, office toy in there. >>Like liquid pens, you know, with the shift that goes back and forth. >>Totally, totally. You can put Elvis in there writing back and forth. You can do a lot with this. >>That's crazy as hell. Alright then when you're really desperate for a heat on you can get your drill out and make a hole through it. [Background noise] >>I should have brought it in here. This old beer can, like novelty beer can that my parents got on their honeymoon in the 60's. And it's dry. You can just hear, all the water is evaporated in it. >>It's got dehydrated water in it which is a very small amount of stuff. Hey check it out. How many people have a pet who has a RFID chip? Everybody I hope. But no one uses them to open and close the cat door. Now you can. This is called a sure flap. It's out of the UK. It's a cat door that has a scanner in it. >>This is brilliant. >>Isn't it? And you program it to read your pets RFID chip. >>No raccoons getting in that thing. >>Bingo. And no neighborhood cats that also have an RFID chip cause it's unique, obviously. >>Chasen your cat in for a little bit of >>Exactly always chasing in and the thing about this is the older models used to use a simple magnetic dongle on the collar but of course any cat in the neighborhood that had that, or dog, could get into the door. This is the most intelligent digitalized pet door I've ever seen. >>Just to keep this unbiased, dog doors too? >>It just shows the cat door right now. >>Ok >>The technology's the same. Just make a bigger door. Cause my dog's got an RFID chip, it's Jangles birthday today by the way. Happy Birthday to my dog. [ Laughter ] >>Ok, let's get to your calls and I mean quickly at triple 8-900-CNET. Last week we asked you to video tape your question and send us a link to CNET live at CNET.com so let's get to one of those first. This one is from Mark G. >>Mark G.: Hey guys. Gotta question about the Blackberry. I got my Blackberry and love it but I can only get it to sync with my PC and I tried downloading some software for the Mac and no luck. Help, Blackberry. So I need some help on the Blackberry. >>Ok, that was, by the way, the first of our video questions. >>Thanks Mark. >>Video your question. Put it up on any of the video sharing sights. Send us an email to CNET live at CNET.com. Now let's answer the poor man's question. >>Yea, well the old answer is the missing sync. You get that at Markspace.com, hey appropriately for Mark. Markspace.com has the missing sync for several different platforms like Symbian but they have one for Blackberry and most folks find that this fixes their syncing problems with the Mac. Now, he said he had tried some software and it didn't work so I don't know if he's already tried missing sync but BT you've got some news, right? >>Brian Tong: Yea, what happens is recently it was reported on the boy genius report as well buyernews.com editors and Blackberry is actually working on a product. It's called blackberry media sync for Mac. It has a specific Mac interface. Now it's very early on so they didn't talk about, you know, contacts encounters but they did mention the ability to manage your media so you have iTunes playlist, your photos, your videos that you can choose to either sync to the device or to the media card or memory stick that's in your Blackberry. So that's comin soon. There is no ETA date yet but there you go Mark G. >>Good stuff. Let's go to phone calls now. Live and coming in on line 1, Portland, Oregon, Roberto got a question about USB drives. Roberto welcome to CNET live. >>Roberto: Hey, thank you so much for having me on the show once again and thank you always for being so informative and helpful. I really learn a lot. >>Thank you, thank you. >>Purely accidental but thank you. >>Robert: [Laughter] I was watching earlier. You had a video on how to hack an Apple TV so that it could, you know, put Boxy and other alternative software on it for watching media. And you mentioned that the kind of USB drive we should use for loading that should be a bootable USB drive. Is that a specific kind of USB drive or is that just any USB drive that gets formatted so it can be bootable? >>Right, you know what I wish I would have explained that a little bit more in the video but I'm glad you gave me the opportunity to clarify. I took that out of Boxys instructions. They say a bootable USB drive and I had the same question at first which was like, isn't pretty much every USB drive bootable? Yea, every USB drive is bootable as long as the computer you're using on it can boot from USB but there are some drives that are sold with U3 software. Have you heard of that? >>I have not. >>Ok, U3 is often sold on like a SanDisk cruzer USB drive or a few others and it's suppose to make portable apps. easy for you but one thing it does also do it stops it from being bootable. So if you have a USB drive with U3 on it you'd either have to get rid of that U3 partition or wipe that drive fully to make it bootable again. So that's what they're talking about. >>Robert: Ok, great. And if you were to install either one of these applications into a Mac mini instead of an Apple TV, you wouldn't have to go through this process. It would just be more of a standard installation in that sense, right? >>Good question. They said that there's some Mac Mini instructions if you go to XBMC's website where they talk about it. Cause you just use the OS10 version if you're goin on to a Mac Mini. I'm pretty sure, yea, boxy will run just like boxy. So yea, you wouldn't have to go through this USB burning stuff if you want to use it on a Mac Mini. You just download the OS10 version of XBMC and the regular version for OS10 of boxy. >>Robert: Great, thank you so much. >>Sure thing Robert. >>Where should we go next? >>Let's go to New York. Is this New York City on the line? Gary? >>Gary: Yes it is. >>Hey, Gary. Welcome to CNET live. What can we do for you? >>Gary: I'm lookin to buy a new MP3 player coming this Holiday season and I was just wondering, I'm deciding between the Archos 5G and the iPod touch III 2 gigabyte. >>Ok, so you've narrowed it down, you want one of those two or do you want us to throw some other recommendations your way as well? >>Gary: Feel free to give any recommendations. >>Ok. So between the Archos and -- you know, do you buy your music from the iTunes store at all? >>Gary: No, I don't. >>Ok, I still think we're gonna recommend the Touch because that is our editor's choice. That is our top music player according to Donald Bell. It's got the most functionality because you get some PDA type stuff in there, you get the calendar. But the Archos is a pretty nice one as well. We like that one as well. It's pretty close. So if you don't care about the iTunes universe at all and you want a little wider video option I might go the Archos way because it plays more video formats than the iPod touch does. >>Gary: Ok >>But the iPod Touch overall is the easier to use and the smoother machine and that's why it gets a couple more higher points. >>The Archos has always been known as the greatest flexibility with file formats. They're really good on supporting just about everything out there except for, of course, the ones that are DRM. >> Alright, let's go on, who do we have next. >>I'm gonna grab this one here about hard drive, drivers under XP with Blazing Conquered. North Carolina, we have that right. Hey Blaze. Welcome to CNET live. >>Blaze: Howdy >>What's on your mind? >>Blaze: I have a Vista machine and I wanna roll it back to XP and I put the XP disk in and it recognizes none of the three hard drives and I called HP up and they said that it was because the XP disc didn't have the drivers for the newer hard drive on my machine. I was wondering if there was a way to put those drivers on the XP disc. >>Well, that's interesting. Well, not on the actual disc itself unless you wanna fiddle around and reburn it. You can't get the XP install to take at all? >>Blaze: It doesn't recognize any hard drive. >>So it doesn't see a place to go. That's interesting. So he has to get the driver's into OS installed disc. This is a Microsoft box purchase or did this come with the PC? The disc you have for windows? >>Blaze: The XP disc is one I bought. >>Ok, so it's a boxed version of XP. How do you handle that when it doesn't recognize a drive at all cause it has no drivers? Which seems odd to me. It seems like having Vista already there has somehow >>Yea, those hard drives, the XP doesn't like those hard drives. It may not be compatible. >>That's really odd. >>That's real odd. One way -- I'm trying to think of a couple ways to get around that. >> What about a clean install? Are you installing over Vista, right? >>Blaze: Yes >> Wouldn't a clean install fix this? I think it's running into existing Vista layers. >> Yea, honestly, I assumed you were doing a clean install so that would be my first step is just back up all that data that you wanna keep. Low level format that hard drive and then start XP from scratch. You shouldn't have that issue. A couple other ideas if that doesn't work. Tiny XP, do a search on tiny XP and it's an XP that's meant for small drives but it's really flexible so it can work on a lot of different stuff. That might get you in the door to where you can recognize the hard drive. But I bet Brian is right. I think you just need to start clean. >>So burn it down. Pour some lighter fluid on it and light a match. >>Blaze: Thank you very much. >>Alright we'll get to more of your calls shortly and to more of your video calls as well. But first Sony just released the latest version of the PSP and David Carnoy likes it. Take a look. [ Music ] >>Hi I'm David Carnoy, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here to give you a video tour of Sony's third generation PSP the PSP 3000. On the surface at least this model isn't all that different from the earlier slim PSP which also goes by the name PSP 2000. Really the two big differences between this model and that one is the addition of a built in microphone and an improved antireflective display. The LCD is the same size and resolution as earlier PSP displays but it's got a wider color gamet, better contrast ratio and quicker pixel response times to help eliminate ghosting and blurring during game play and video playback. Everything just looks a little more vibrant on the screen. When we compared this model to the older PSP 2000 you can see that the photos pop more on the PSP 3000. As for the antiglare the idea is that you'll be able to see the PSP screen better when you play with it outside. Like the PSP 2000 the new PSP has a video out port and the uses the same video cables but the PSP 3000's video output now supports game play on 9 HDTV's. Ok, back to the built in mike. Most people will use it for Skype but expect the mike to have a role in future games both for single and multiplayer applications. The other changes are minor and mostly cosmetic. The buttons and switches on the PSP 3000 haven't changed and the black version of the model will have the same glossy finish as older models but the silver and white PSP 3000 systems now have a more textured surface that's more fingerprint resistant. However, the screen still is a fingerprint magnet so no change there. You'll also notice that the brush metal ring on the back of the unit has been replaced with a thinner chrome ring. If you're waiting for a true PSP II, sorry this isn't it. While we can't call this a major upgrade to the PSP, the small improvements do make the system better while the cost stays the same. That makes it hard to complain too much. I'm David Carnoy and it's the Sony PSP 3000. >>Sony, the DSI the PSP3000. Just give us a freaken new console. Alright, while I calm down we're gonna take another video question. This one was sent in to CNET live at CNET.com like we said post your video questions anywhere you like on the web and just send us a link. This one comes from Dillon B. >>Dillon: Hey guys. Love the show. And it's really cool you doing these new video questions so hopefully mine gets read out loud. It's a bit long so I'll try and speak through it as fast as I can. And anyway, I have a time capsule. Basically it's so slow. I'm not able to get a megabit of speed and basically here's the little set up. I've got BT homehub connected. As is it's using as the modem for the time capsule but it's with Bridge mode so you have the option of using the time capsule or the BT homehub to connect to. Ideally I'd want to connect to the time capsule but I can't cause it's so slow. With the BT homehub I would usually get between 7 and 7 and a half megabits so hopefully you'll be able to give me some answers to help speed it up. I've followed your speed it up Y5 thing but none of this has helped. Thanks very much. >>Hmm, Dillon from Scotland. >>Super slow, he's on every show. [Laughter] One way or another he's crafty that way. He's crafty. >>Brian Tong dug up a good article at Hack addict which is a Mac blog that talks about a bunch of different things you can do to help speed up time capsule. The principle one is to turn off time capsules Y5. So one of the problems with these video questions is we can't really follow up to find out if he did this. There's a few other things in here like disabling search light, indexing, removing time capsule from quicksilver's catalog, if you've got quicksilver running. I'll post this in the show notes at blog.cnettv.com and you can read this article about all the different ways to help tweak time capsule so that it's faster. There might be some stuff with your router, I'm not sure. It sounds to me though because of the troubles that other people have been having that we've seen on forums all across the internet >>Yea >>that this is probably a time capsule issue. >>Ok, good deal. Let's see, let's go to long time waiting here, we've got Rick in Minneapolis on line 3. Question about clearing out some identities on Windows. Hello Rick, welcome to CNET live. >>Rick: Hello there. What I wanna do I have Windows XP home and what I'd like to do is make it on the initial log in screen that the name has to be typed in whether than be auto filled by Windows. >>Interesting. Ok, so when it wakes up and you first get in that boot screen to log in, do you want any of the users even to show up as a menu or just what? You gotta start from scratch. >>Rick: Start from scratch. >>Ok, we've got a hack for that, right? >>Yea, how comfortable are you with editing the registry? >>Rick: Very >>Awesome. >>That's my kind of listener. >>If you go into the registry you can find a registry key called special accounts user list. You create an entry called reg underscore D word assign it a value of zero and that will prevent any user names from coming up at log in. You press control, alt, delete twice to bring up the log in screen and then you type in your user ID and password fresh. >>We will put a link to the show notes. [Laughter] >>Yes, you don't have to memorize that. I can hear him he says, ok hold on, reg underscore d word. We'll put the link in the show notes. >>Rick: [Laughter] >>Alright, that'll hook you up there Rick. I'm not gonna ask what you're hiding. That's all I'm gonna tell you. Let's go to, I have a question I'm intrigued by. I get this question a lot and Alan's got it also, Alan in New Jersey, question about digital cameras. Hello, Alan. What can we do for you? >>Alan: Hey guys. What's up? Love the show. >>Thank you. >>Thanks Alan >>Alan: So I'm thinking about getting a Canon Rebel XSi the new club megapixel 1 >>Great camera >>Alan: Yea but I had a bunch of price matching issues. Because I wanna buy from actual [inaudible] but I want to get it at Amazon price. I wanted to know which warranty would be the best, from what store and even if you recommend it. >>Yea, that's where I'm gonna go first. I don't recommend warranties unless you're buying a laptop, in some cases, cause they are expensive and they have proprietary parts that are hard to swap out yourself and they get dropped or if you're buying a very expensive flat panel TV, otherwise, as we've looked at the return rates, the failure rates on products which run between 4 and 15 percent on most CE products, the laptops and TV's are on the high end the cameras on the lower end. I don't think it's worth the money to get the warranty. >>Yea, I mean, look at the warranty that you get already with the product you're buying. >>That would be a 1 year manufacturer >>If it's 1 year manufacturer you're probably not gonna get that much more by paying, unless there's some kind of parts replacement but with a DSLR they're not gonna replace the lens >>They're gonna replace the whole thing. Remember these are service contracts not necessarily warranties so it's usually a third party which I'm not that comfortable with and they're gonna repair it which is different than replacing it in many cases and the coverage you buy is usually duplicate in the first year so a two year warranty is really only adding a year. It overlaps the factory for the first year so the first year is usually a waste of money. Those are some of the reasons, we've done the numbers and we don't like warranties on most products, not the extended ones that you can buy, alright? >>Ok, so it's time for a quick break so when we come back it's the best of the web right after this. ^M00:18:54 [ Music ] ^M00:20:00 >>Welcome back to CNET live. Keep the calls comin 888-900-2638, 888-900-CNET. We've got a line open. >>Just one. Before we do some more calls though [Background music] it's time for the best of the web. Ok, best of the web brought to us by our good friends at CNET's webware.com. This is the coolest app. Why did it take so long for this to happen? What this is all about is let people know when you're running late. It's called oops I'm late, an app for your Smartphone. Combines the calendar for that you have in there, the contacts, and GPS ability, so that has to be built in your phone. >>You've gotta have GPS built in your phone for this to work. >>Yea and have it switched on. But this app will take a look at your calendar, where you are, figure out if you're gonna get there in time and if not it'll automatically message the people in the contacts that you're going to meet. >>This is the stuff from the world of the future expos of the 60's we've been waiting for. It just knows stuff. >>Yea, it's really cool. >>And you don't have to tell it anything. >>Nope, it's a really cool -- I haven't used it. I don't know if it's cloodgy. It's real new. I do not have a window's portable to test it on. It looks like it's only right now on Windows mobile, I think, so that's maybe a hampering for you but that is pretty cool in terms of tying it together and as you see >>What about if you don't want them to know you're running late? >>Then it needs to be oops I'm late but I'm BSing you where I am. >>Yea, there has to be a setting. >>There's a free app supported version you see right there. So what the hell, go try it out. Ok, more calls. >>Onward across the pond to Mathew, hey Matthew, thanks for calling CNET live. What can we help you with today? >>Mathew: Hey, Tom, it's Mathew Hughes from >>Oh, Matthew Hughes, how are you? >>Matthew: I'm good, thanks. Yourself? >>I'm doing well. So you've got a MacBook question for us? >>Matthew: Yea, like recently even if I was to do something really, really simple in a MacBook like write a word document the battery will go low and the fans will be going full blast and this has been constant for a while and the color on the plastic chasse and it's getting to the point where my Apple care expires and I've got the choice of renewing it. Do you think I should renew it and do you think it's anything dangerous? >>It's suspicious isn't it? I assume you're not sitting under a heat lamp or anything. So I'm guessing you've got a thermal paced issue of some sort there. BT, you got any -- you've got some Mac knowledge, right. >>Yea, we did a little digging and the one thing that I've used and some of my friends have used is this little utility. I don't know if you've tried this. It's called SMC fan control. You can get it at Macupdate.com and the big thing about it is you can actually decrease the rate that the fan is spinning but one cool thing about it is it prevents you from running it below the Apple requirements and potentially damaging your computer so you might wanna take a look at that. Do you have any cases on your laptop? Cause a lot of times people have those for decoration that might make the computer run hotter? >>Matthew: I actually don't. You know I like that style of the MacBook. I think it looks pretty cool. And I take good care of it, you know, I've not spilled liquids on it. It's not been near anything that could damage it and I keep it in a cool place but I don't know, it's just been an uphill struggle with this MacBook and I really, really regret buying it. >>[Laughter] Yea and the fact that the chasse is changing color because of the heat, issues. >>Not a good thing. >>Say again, Matthew >>Matthew: It's gone a light blue color >>Ok >>It's lacking oxygen. Oh, wait, no that's humans. Yea, you know what. Have you taken it in to the Apple store? >>Matthew: I've not yet, no. >>You could point out that blue and point out the fan running and say like, hey, you know, as long as your still under Apple care right now try to get it in before your Apple care expires and I would also, in any case, make sure to back up all your data just in case. >>Matthew: I will do. Thanks very much. >>Thanks Matthew. Appreciate the call. Good deal. I'll keep an eye out for you on Plurk. >>Alright, thank you for that one. >>We got lots of emails to CNET live to CNET.com about accessibility especially regarding music players and this week's insider secret shows you how to make your iPod talk. >>MP3 players are one of the most popular ways to enjoy music these days but if you're one of the millions suffering from vision impairment, navigating through your music collection using a scroll wheel and small type on a tiny screen just isn't convenient. I'm Donald Bell and on today's insider secret we're going to explain how to get spoken menus on Apple's 4th-generation iPod nano. ^M00:24:34 [ Music ] ^M00:24:43 >>Donald Bell: 4th-generation nano is one of the lightest, slimmest and most affordable iPod MP3 players you can buy. It's also the first iPod to include a spoken menu's feature that reads selected menu track listing information to you in a synthesized voice. >>Extras, videos, music >>Donald Bell: To enable this feature connect your iPod to your computer. Launch iTunes 8 and select your iPod from the left pane. The main iTunes window should now be an overview page for your iPod with a few check box options near the bottom of the page. Check off the last option marked enable spoken menus. It will take a few minutes before the feature takes affect because iTunes need to read all the menu and song data from your iPod. Then it generates the synthesized voice cues locally on your computer and finally it associates those voice cues back to your iPod. The upshot of the system is that you can change the speed and tone of the voice used in the iPod spoken menus by tricking the voice settings on your computer. [ Synthesized voice ] >>To change the default voice on Windows XP go to settings in the start menu. Select control panel and then select speech. By default Windows users only have one voice called Microsoft sand but additional voices can be installed. We found a few free ones out there but many of the better voices run about $35 bucks a pop. Under voice type there's also a bar to define the speed of the voice. Mac users have it a little easier when it comes to voice options. Over 20 voices are included by default on a Mac OS10 although some of them are a little silly. [Background computerized voice] You can find your Mac's voice settings by going to the systems preferences from the Apple menu and locating the speech icon. Same as Windows you can adjust the type of voice and the play back speed. In theory, iTunes should detect when you've made changes to your computer speech settings and reload your iPod nano with new voice files the next time it's connected. However, in Windows XP we could only get the new voice settings to take after doing an iPod firmware restore through iTunes. Under Mac the system voice changes seem to take immediately. We imagine most folks won't be changing the voice settings too often but it's good to know that if you have a favorite voice you like to use there's no reason you can't load it onto your iPod nano as well. After enabling spoken menus through iTunes you should be able to hear the voice cues on your iPod right away. If you don't, check the settings menu of your iPod, click on general, and you should be able to find an option for turning spoken menus on and off. Knowing where to look locate your iPod settings for spoken menus is also useful for people who don't suffer from vision impairment but want to temporarily take advantage of the feature while driving so you can browse your music files without taking your eyes off the road. So there you go. That's how to get spoken menus on your 4th-generatioin Apple iPod nano, for CNET.com I'm Donald Bell. [ Music ] >>Cool stuff from the D. Bell. Alright we gotta quickly take one more call. Let's try to squeeze in Kyle from Orlando, Fl. You got a sling box question for us, eh Kyle? >>Kyle: Well, yea, I'm pretty confused cause I've heard some recent stuff from buzz out loud and general stuff >>That'll confuse you >>Kyle: What's the difference between sling box and sling catcher? >>Ok, sling box takes the television programming you have at home, just over the air or on cable or satellite, and sends it through the internet to your computer. So any computer you have running the sling box software can see what's on your home television. Sling catcher takes the video off of your computer, so if you have a laptop everything you see on your laptop and it sends it to your television. So it's basically the reverse. If I'm watching CNETTV.com I can send that to my television screen with sling catcher. If I'm watching, I don't know, Survivor, ha ha a CBS show, then I can send that to my laptop. >>Kyle: Alright, well thanks guys. I appreciate it. >>Good. That was an easy one. I like the simple ones like that. We've got time for one more question. This one one of our brand new video questions, this one is from Ultimate Buster. >>Ultimate buster: Hey CNET. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 running Vista. As you can see I have a line in mike and a web camera. Why do I not have a wave out option? Thanks in advance. >>Good question. We get this question a lot. Here's what's going on. Your particular computer you've got a Sigmatel STAC 9200 series sound chip which I don't think has full duplex. Full duplex means the chip can record and play simultaneously. Some chips can't do that. That apparently is the case on your machine. But before you scrap it think about this. You might find a registry hacker or registry entry you can tweak. I found this on some machines. So go look for Sigmatel, s-i-g-m-a t-e-l, that's the name of your chip. Search your registry for that and look for any switches that might let you change the zero to a one or vice versa to enable recording and playback at once. That's kind of a hail Mary. Your other option and I found this one at a good price on CNET is what's called the Vantec USB audio adapter. There are lots of these out there but this one I know for sure lists duplex audio functionality so it can record and play at the same time so that external gadget and it's what, $20, $25 bucks, you can get done what you wanna do and typically people ask this question cause they wanna stream something and record it while it's streaming. This would let you do that. >>Alright that's it for today. Thanks everybody for sending your video questions >>Yea >>to CNET live at CNET.com. Like we said any provider you wanna use just send us the link, we don't want the files. We're not gonna use that cause that will just get kicked away by the spam filter, so upload it to your favorite video provider, CNET live at CNET.com is the email address. >>Thanks to Brian Tong, he's on the crew. We'll see him again next week as well and don't forget you can hit us at CNET live at CNET.com with your email questions and those video links Tom's talken about. We'll see you next week. Phones open at 12:30 Pacific, show starts at 1:00 Pacific, 4:00 Eastern and I don't know. What time is that >>10:00 am Hawaiian baby >>Hawaii, yea ^M00:30:27 [ Music ]
