Ep. 130: The Inappropriate EpisodeToday's gaggle of gadgets are all extremely inappropriate. Only one of them is inappropriate in "that" way.
[ Background Music ] >> It's Gadgets, I'm Kelly Morrison. >> I'm Lindsay Turrentine. >> I'm Jason Howell. >> It is Friday, March 27 or there about. Welcome to Gadgets. Lovely spring day. >> Good to have you. >> Alas, Molly is not with us today. >> She is not. I'm replacing and I'm really glad to be back. It's been a long time. >> It has been a long time. It's probably been like what? 3, 4 months-- >> Something like that. >> Someone's been around there. >> Yet enough time for the city ought to completely change. [ Laughter ] >> I know we have all of these. >> This is not the same home you left last time. Things have changed. >> We have all these fancy equipments. >> I know. >> We've got this big fancy cameras, fancy [inaudible] cameras. >> That's right. I'm sure you've heard it already but we've got this whole video podcast thing going. Actually officially, we have the gadgets video podcast offered at gadgets.cnet.com as well as iTunes. So, you can subscribe to it now. >> Nice job Jason. >> Yeah. >> Well done. >> It is -- it is really beautiful especially because Kelly and I are both wearing coral today. >> Yes. >> We are -- we're wearing a lovely shade of vermillion coral and I'm kind of shocked that both of us have this color but here we are and there it is. >> Yeah. So-- >> Uh-hmm. You're not, yeah you're not gonna apologize for that. >> I'm not gonna apologize though it's, you know, really terribly inappropriate. >> No, it is completely though. >> In fact I would almost say that it inspired this week's theme which is the inappropriate episode. >> So prepare yourselves, buckle you seatbelts. I may be coughing inappropriately. >> Uh-hmm. >> It's okay. >> I may be making inappropriate jokes or just being my inappropriate self and we will. >> And I'm just along for the ride. >> And you're just-- >> I'm just gonna make sure and capture it on video and select. >> And you're just gonna bleep it out if it gets really bad, right? >> Really inappropriate. >> That's your job. >> If it's really, really inappropriate? Yes. I'll bleep it out. >> Just bring it right on, Jason. >> You know, video actually poses a challenge to this all. >> That is true. >> Because even if you say a bad word, I can bleep it but we still see your mouth moving. So I'm gonna have to do one of those like fuzzy cops things where I like blur out the mouth. >> Oh! >> I'm gonna try really hard to get for me to snort on the show. >> Really? [ Laughter ] >> I don't know, I -- do you guys, neither of you is a snorter. >> Yeah. >> No. >> I have been known to snort. >> Oh, [inaudible]. >> I have, but I'm not going to know. >> Okay. >> Because now I know I'm onto [simultaneous talking]. >> We know your devious plan. >> I know your devious plan and I know that I would be wildly mocked for snorting. So, [laughter] no, no. Nothing but, you know--nothing but professionalism on this show today. >> Nothing but inappropriate professionalism. >> Yes. So let's get started, shall we? >> Lets do it. >> We shall [inaudible]. >> Lets get started with our very professional show. Let's start with the most lame thing I've ever seen in the world and it pisses me off. >> Oh my gosh. >> I'm so, I'm so mad right now. It is a wildly inappropriate bus stop ad that displays your weight when you sit your-- >> Your tush down on that seat. >> Where is this, Rotterdam? >> No, no, I just wanna use inappropriate language and you know what, I'm not gonna be able to stop my self. I stopped my self right there-- >> Aha. >> --from saying what I was thinking, but I can tell-- >> Don't stop yourself. >> I can tell it's gonna bubble up, it's gonna-- >> But yes, you should not censor it so-- >> Well, where is it? This is Rotterdam? I don't think that this would work in the United States. Because the Dutch people, they're kind of small. >> It's true. >> You know, they're all about showing their weight everywhere. >> They're all fit. They ride their bikes. It's not that bad for them. >> No. >> Yeah, I think at first I didn't realize that this was in what? >> Rotterdam? >> Kilograms or I'm trying to [simultaneous talking] so you thought this woman was 68 pounds. It's like I don't believe it. >> Including her bag [laughter] which apparently weighs 2 pounds. >> And with jacket. >> Yeah, yeah that--can you just imagine in like some parts of the US? >> No. Oh my gosh. Or could I even imagine if I sat on--No. >> No, I mean I simply--I would actually chose to stand rather than sit on a scale and that is saying you're like some pretty lazy, honestly. >> So this is for a health club chain, fitness first. >> Yeah, to embarrass you into joining the health club apparently. That would just piss me off. >> Yeah, right. >> I would just say, you know, screw you. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Thanks for telling me. I'm going to another gym. >> Thanks for telling me, I'm going for a jog outside. >> Yeah, and that is why we will never ever see this. >> Actually, you could jog everyday. Pass this and then every like 7 days, sit down, see where you stand at that point. >> Where you sit. >> Yeah. >> Know where you sit. >> And then send them a bill or something. [ Laughter ] >> I don't know. >> Yeah. >> You know who would love this? The kids. >> Oh yeah. >> They love to know how much they weigh. >> It's true. >> They--and the bigger the better. >> Uh-hmm. >> That's very, very true, but yeah, clearly not intended for kids. >> Yeah. >> And not very nice-- >> Appropriate. >> --at all. >> No. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Also--also not a--maybe you guys will disagree with me on this but I think the whole electric cigarettes trend, if it can be called a trend, seems weird and inappropriate to me. I was listening-- >> It does. I totally agree. >> I was listening to something about this on the radio. I think NPR had something on it last week about how the FDA like electric cigarettes are kind of new to the US. I think they have been in the UK for a while maybe and the FDA is trying to stop them from being imported to the US, but they're I guess kind of catching hold and it's just that to the electric cigarette that just you'd inhale straight nicotine, I believe is that-- >> Which, you know, I kind of feel like what's the point. I guess there's no tar, right, if your carcinogens-- >> But-- >> But if you really wanna stop smoking, why would you do something that mimics, you know, most of the behaviors of smoking. >> Yeah, so is this--this is supposed to be about smoking cessation. >> Cessation. >> Right, like-- >> Yeah. >> But, it doesn't really do much to like--to discourage the actual act of smoking, you know what I mean? >> No! >> Yeah! >> At least with a patch, you're kind of you know you're getting-- >> Right. >> --a little bit of nicotine to wean you off but you aren't like any getting-- >> You're breaking the emotional cycle. >> --still in the habit just like [inaudible]. >> Yeah. >> And right, and there's that whole going outside with your friends to have a smoke and the whole--all the culture of it and I just, you know, I don't see--and plus I think that the liquid nicotine in these things comes in different flavors. You get like menthol like with nicotine. >> Oh. That just sounds good. >> This is not--this is not right. >> And I am a person, you know, I have smoked in my time. [ Inaudible Remark ] >> I'm not an anti-smoker. >> How inappropriate. >> I'm not one of those people who gets up on--I'm not a breaker of friend cigarettes and those people-- >> Tread on your way. >> Those people should not--should not break cigarettes, those breakers of friend cigarettes. It's not nice at all. But it does seem like, you know, it does seem like as a smoking cessation tool, it is a bad idea. >> Uh-hmm. >> Right. >> But if, you know, if someone wants to be all electronic and stuff-- >> It seems to reinforce more than anything. >> Okay, yeah. And who knows what, you know, inhaling vapor, nicotine vapor does. >> And the guy in this video totally has a molester mustache. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> He totally has a molester mustache. It's super creepy and why [laughter] would you want to associate a molester mustache with the electric cigarette which is kind of--they're kind of, you know, already [inaudible] in my mind. >> Especially--Yeah. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> I also--I love the name of this pack, the smoke stick. >> Smoke stick. Yeah. >> It's like I got to go out--and I gonna go out and decide to have a smoke stick break. >> I know. [ Laughter ] [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> That like discourages you from trying to wean yourself off of smoking and just stay with cigarette smoking. >> I know. >> Smoking is sick because that sounds cooler. >> Than the smoke stick. >> The smoke stick. >> Can we go and smoke stick. [ Laughter ] >> It's so cool, it lights up. And it lights up like a cigarette--like wire. >> I know. >> I think it's a great business idea. >> It's--Yeah, it's like a-- >> I mean you know, it's addictive. >> It's like candy cigarettes for adults except addictive. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Right, right. >> Actually addictive. >> Yeah, yeah. I don't know. >> Well, not perfect. >> Tell us what you--You know what, someone out there I bet has tried these weird things or has an opinion. Tell us what you think 'cause this is kind of new concept to me but I think it's been out there in other parts of the world for a while. So, someone write in and give us your--Gadgets at cnet.com. Here, give as your take on the weird cigarette stick idea. Anyway, shall we move on? >> Oh yeah. [Simultaneous talking] I'm waiting because this next one, I can't wait. >> It is so inappropriate. >> And it has absolutely nothing to do with technology. >> It's okay, sometimes-- [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Sorry people, I'm sorry. But I have this friend who every Christmas, I have to give him a calendar with animals dressed in costumes drinking tea or getting food out of the fridge and wearing, you know, wigs and coats and shoes and stuff like that. >> Do you have to? >> Why? >> What happens if you don't? >> It fills him with rage and I just-- >> Okay. >> You know, he's just like last year it was parrots. It was an all parrot calendar with wing seats. >> Nice. >> So, I am somewhat inspired by this link that Jason found which is wigs for cats. >> Yeah. >> Wig, like long wigs. >> Yeah, you can actually buy designer wigs for your cats. Some of them are pink, some of them are blue and then others are more natural human colors. It's creepy. >> And they're all very glamorous. >> Yeah, like they go to a whole glamorous route and, Kelly, you were saying in prep like they've got [inaudible] or one of you said-- >> [Inaudible] photo. >> [Inaudible] style photos and it's just kind of creepy. >> They also come in little like hat box tins that you can get with a handle that you can carry around with little toy mice. [ Laughter ] >> It's just-- >> It's kittywigs.com. >> Yeah. >> You know, I love that the internet has made all of these little niche operations possible like every girl with a dream can, you know, make her product and got to sell it herself independently. [ Laughter ] >> Oh, no matter how disgusting. >> But sometimes it's just a little bit creepy. >> And sad, yeah. >> And my favorite is that one of these cats totally looks like little Kim. >> The blue one. >> The blue one. >> The blue wig. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> She even like has that kind of sassy look. >> Right, with a really super straight ironed. >> Yeah, totally. >> It's totally pieing in the air like-- >> You know I realized though. >> Yeah. >> I clicked around a little bit-- >> Exactly. >> --and I realized why that these wigs are important. >> Why? >> Why? >> Lolcat, they're for lolcat. Look, there's a--you know little mirrors thing-- >> Oh lolcats. >> There's this great picture of the gray kitty with a pink wig and he's got his head kind of cocked to the side and it's so after I was muttered, I figured why not? [ Laughter ] ^M00:10:01 >> Whoa. >> Wow, so is this just lolcat inspired or >> I think, well. >> Is it a 50-dollar lolcat prop? >> I think so. I think it's a prop for doing funny things with your cats and taking pictures of them and sending them to your friends. >> I don't know if it's much of a prop. There's got to be people out there that take this seriously. >> Wow. >> You know, the people that buy like a special handbag to carry their cat around in that matches their cats, you know, leash or whatever. They are the ones putting these wigs on the cats. >> Do you think so? I will-- >> And calling him like Mr. Toodles or something like that, like Mr. instead of their name because they--they just think this cat is a real person. >> According to their press feed, it looks like a lot of these are used in photo shoots for magazines. >> Interesting. >> Oh, okay. >> You know-- >> --or calendars, so you might have a calendar idea for next year, Kelly. >> Oh, ahahaha. You know what kind of blows my mind about this is the amount of press that's gotten. Anderson Cooper-- >> Yeah. [ Laughter ] >> I mean Gadgets is one thing, it's--and not that it's even related to tech [simultaneous talking] but Anderson Cooper? Really, did he talk about kitty wigs? Really did Business Week [simultaneous talking] really write an article about kitty wigs? >> Anderson Cooper is always sweeping up after us [simultaneous talking] so I'm not [inaudible] at all. >> Well, let's see. >> So true. >> He listens every week. >> He is just using [simultaneous talking]. He is just digging through our trash, I tell you what. >> He totally is. Anderson Cooper, are you there in the live chat? Come on. [ Laughter ] >> Show yourself. >> Show yourself. >> Just show yourself. We know you love this stuff. >> Declare that I am Anderson Cooper and I wear kitty wigs. He must, right? >> In fact, isn't it true that-- >> He totally does. >> He totally does in his off time. >> Isn't it true that Anderson Cooper sent in the link to this next thing that we have on the show notes, ha? >> Oh my God. I do not know what to think [simultaneous talking] I mean I think [laughter] he's cute. Okay, actually you know who sent in this link is-- >> Oh boy, I don't wanna. >> It's Peter. >> What I could-- [ Laughter ] [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Peter sent in this link. >> Are you sure his name is really Peter? >> Yeah, I don't know. [ Laughter ] >> I don't know about that. >> Oh, wow. So this is widely inappropriate. >> Yes, it is. >> And I don't really even know how to talk about it without either laughing or getting us in trouble. It's a family show, but I'm just gonna go--I'm just gonna go to town so-- [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> All I know is there's a certain part of the screen that I'm not showing in the video feed. >> Yeah, it is not safe for work. So if you're at work-- >> Switch off now. >> Yeah, don't click the link, okay? >> This a-- >> Alright, here we go. >> This item that we found in Gizmodo or either Peter found, I can't believe that's really his name, in Gizmodo is a belly button ring and though that's cool, you know, I got no problem with the belly button ring but it has this thing that hangs from the -- I don't even know how to describe this. >> How do you describe this? >> Like it articulated. It looks kind of like a spine. >> Okay, you know what, it's a cybernetic pop-up penis, okay? >> Yes. [ Laughter ] >> Okay, are we done? Are we done? It apparently somehow goes up and down in a way that-- >> You know as you run around-- >> I don't--as you run around. Not on its own. Thank God, 'cause that would be really inappropriate, but somehow, I don't know. >> I think that it perhaps is not cybernetic and it's just sculpture. You could probably insert a flick here. [ Laughter ] >> Ohh-- >> Sorry. >> Oh, and look at the eyes. >> If you go for a jog it, you know, that's when it moves. That's about it. >> I'm sure it would be very mesmerizing to watch. >> I'm kind of mesmerized by this animated [inaudible]. >> I know, I really, I really can't stop looking. It's kind of like choc knots for your belly button. >> Yes, okay. There you go. >> It is wildly inappropriate. >> Yeah. >> Especially the rainbow one. >> Doing--oh, it's awesome. >> Because and--and it issued to be, you know, it's usually inappropriate. It's also the ugliest thing I've ever seen in my life. >> It's just so terrible. I can't, I need to get myself off this page because of this little animated gift is just making me crazy. >> Yeah. Yeah, Emo jacket. >> Emo jacket, okay. >> Emo jacket away. >> So, okay on device there is a little piece about an Emo jacket that lets you feel what's going on in a movie, right? >> Come on. >> So the idea is that, you know, this is kind of experimental but it reduces--it reacts to signals and cut it on the DVD and I don't know what, vibrates or hugs or puts tension in the arms and makes your heartbeat feel like it's going fast. But my first reaction was like not that kind of movie that create likely-- [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> And you know what, you are a dirty girl 'cause I read this and I was like, "Oh wow, action movies. Oh wow. That would be really like I would have a heart attack for wearing a jacket like this and like, you know, Speed or something like that." >> Yeah, I guess--I guess--I guess I just have problems, but you know that the commenter said exactly the same thing like, "I don't know, let's not make pants." >> That's got to be more like an Emo jumpsuit, yeah. >> An Emo jumpsuit. >> That's a way that it takes that next level. [Simultaneous talking] 'Cause with Emo jacket, what's really gonna happen there? >> I know, and maybe that's it. >> And we don't need to explore that. >> Yeah, but all I can think is when I see this is like cool idea, I can see where that would end up. >> Where did Emo come from? Why Emo? >> I don't know, it makes you feel emotions. I don't know. >> Emotions. >> Maybe it's just the way this guy looks in the photo. >> Makes you feel like you're about to die when you're watching an action movie. That doesn't sound like very much fun. >> It's just I can't imaging anyone wanting to get more physically involved with--in a movie than they already are like one of the reasons that I don't go see lots of kinds of movies is 'cause they stress me out so much and I don't like the loud noises and all that ache. >> You don't like your heart racing? >> No. I don't know. Maybe there are those of us who are less stressed out than I am and they would really wanna be stressed out. >> They prefer to be more stressed out. >> [Inaudible] a bad dream. >> They just aren't getting enough stress in their lives so they need that. >> Sounds like a bad dream. You go to see a movie and, you know, this-- >> Yeah-- >> This reminds me of a dream that I would have where I go to see a movie, a film in the theater, I'm sitting in there and suddenly like I'm actually being shot with bullets-- >> Yeah. >> --the movie I'm watching and it hurts. >> That would totally suck. >> Like that would suck. >> Yeah, I know. I don't wanna be shot with bullets in a movie theater. >> No. You know maybe this would be good for training purposes, right? Like during-- >> Oh, okay. Okay. >> --your NASA training mission and you need to feel like, I don't know. >> It's like paint ball, you end up fearing the pain. [Laughter] So it teaches you to be better at it or something, I don't know. >> Yeah, you know too much about. >> I know. >> I played some paint ball not recently, it's pretty fun. >> Its fun until the welts rise up on your flash. >> Yeah, that's true. >> I have seen those welts. It's not on my own flesh, thank you very much but, uh-uh, never. >> Because you always end up playing with at least one person that doesn't understand that there is such a thing as too close, like being too close to someone before firing. They have those rules but someone always refuses to pay attention to that and [simultaneous talking] not pays. >> Uh-hmm. Someone always just wants you dead. Dead, I tell you dead. Yeah. >> But it is fun. >> Yeah? >> It's a rush, that's for sure. >> I'll have to take your word for it 'cause I-- >> Okay. >> Kind of like scary movies [simultaneous talking] but I don't mean they're coming. >> Yeah. >> A point never--probably never in my life will, but you know. >> Well, wear Emo jacket and play a paintball game. There you go. >> No. [ Laughter ] >> I will take that into consideration and-- >> Wear a paintball or an Emo jacket and play EA Mobile Madden or Wolfenstein in fact. >> It's my speed. A little scrabble maybe. >> Right, yes. >> Full contact scrabble. >> I need a jacket for scrabble. It jostles me awake every so often if I start to pass out in the middle of the game. That's what I need. >> We were looking for something that would allow you to be inappropriate. It's for the subtler level. >> Yeah. >> Yeah like, you know, people think that you're doing your-- >> Checking your email. >> Yeah, and really you're just playing--you're just playing you know [simultaneous talking]. >> Your favorite games from Entertainment Arts. Is that what it stands for? So EA-- >> Yeah. >> EA is releasing its most, some of its most popular games for the iPhone. >> Electronic Arts. >> Yes, oh there we go. Thank you. >> Yeah, you just threw that out there. >> Yeah. >> I know the emails were about to come. >> Thank you, thank you. [Simultaneous talking] I did express my self doubt that I was saying that it was like I don't that's right. Yeah. So, for the iPhone and iPod Touch, we've got their--they're releasing--What are they releasing? They were releasing Madden and Wolfenstein and other really popular titles so that you can continue to waste time wherever you are. >> And scrabble. May I say once again, scrabble. Scrabble, I'm very excited about scrabble. >> Yes. So you can be, you know, you could subversive. I guess in your meetings. >> Well they--are they online games? Like can you be connected online and play against someone else on scrabble or is it just a one person game? >> That's a really good question. >> I would assume that it would be completely useless if you can with your friends. >> Yeah, 'cause it seems that way but I wouldn't be surprised. >> Uh-hmm. >> Uh-hmm. We'll find out. >> Oh yeah. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> "At some point this year." I wish we had a little bit more information. >> I wonder how much one of these would cost. I would like to know. >> Yeah, me too 'cause it seems like an awful lot of development for, you know, those App Store. Apps don't cost very much usually. >> Yeah. >> I'm guessing 9.99, something like that. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> I would totally pay that for a good game of scrabble. Anyway, moving on to our final inappropriate gadgets, inappropriate and totally different and considerably more cute sort of way. >> We're taking you down for a soft landing here. >> That's right, and we're speaking soft happy tones now. That's right. We're talking about the Speakal iPig which is so cute-- >> It's so cute. >> It's inappropriate. >> It's completely inappropriate for adults and yet I want one. >> It's really--I mean it's actually apparently according to [inaudible], a good speaker which is kind of remarkable. It's an iPod dock. >> Yeah, it's look like a pig. >> It looks like a pig and the little pig ears are apparently controls and the eyes are-- >> Speakers. >> Speakers. >> Yeah, and what does the nose do? No, it's cute. >> Maybe it turns it on and off. >> Maybe. >> Yeah, it's the pig part. >> Oh, and it's belly, if you turn it upside down it's belly is the woofer. >> Oh yeah. >> Oh, something and so you can rub its belly and it will giggle or something like that. >> No, but it probably gets kind of warm under there. [ Laughter ] >> Also a hand warmer, it has little legs. >> This is really-- >> A simple type purpose pig, really. >> This is the perfect gift for that person that has all the pig paraphernalia and, you know, they probably don't even really like pigs but like they bought, you know, a pig one time. >> Right, they made a mistake one time and their grandmother once that they liked it and then-- ^M00:20:01 >> Yeah and now everything they have is pig. >> Yup, yup. >> But it will set you back about 130 bucks which is not cheap but it's actually very, you know, well designed. >> It's cute and I wanna--I just wanna reach out and press those little control ears. >> I know. Those little two 1-inch twitters beneath the ears, yeah, that's pretty cute. I like it. >> Anyhow, we will be back in just a minute with some crazy segments. >> That's right. [ Background Music ] >> Around the world, across the nation and in your hometown, stay connected with your community. CBS Radio's award-winning all new stations bring you up to the minute coverage on everything you need to know. Listen live, online 24/7 at cbsradio.com. >> I can't believe we are in any way connected to something that serious. >> That majestic. >> That was very serious. >> Wow, I'm awestruck. [ Laughter ] >> You don't even know what to do with yourself. >> I can only do one thing right now and that is tool time. [ Noise ] >> Tool time. >> 'Cause what is the best, the best counteraction-- >> To majestic CBC advertisements. >> And cute pigs. >> And cute pigs. >> And cute pigs. >> And cute pigs. >> At the same time the most annoying thing I have ever seen in my life. In fact when Jason showed me this link, my first reaction was, "Oh, my God! No!" >> Kelly got really mad. I was there, she was mad. It's so scary. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Offensive. >> I know, well I went to a college with tons of hippies in it and I used to have this visceral reaction to hippies now that I can't--I can't control. [Simultaneous talking] I know we are all peaceful and what not, patchouli makes me crazy. [ Laughter ] >> Someday I'm just gonna bring her in a piece of incense and just subtly you know like quietly light it during the show and see what happens. >> You don't need to do that. All you need to do is be in an elevator with a hippie for 5 minutes and then come in afterward and I will smell it on you. That is how finely tuned my sense of smell is to patchouli. >> You're a patchouli radar. >> It's really-- >> You're a hippiedar. >> I mean if I get that product that have, you know, A milliliter of patchouli or whatever small amount, I have to throw them out. That is how much I was scarred as a college kid beside the hippies. >> Is there still the patchouli like thing going on in high schools now? >> I don't know. >> Oh, I wonder. I wonder maybe. You know what? [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Say something like a '90s, '80s sort of thing? >> The hippie might be a totally different and more gentle breed now than when I was-- >> Chat room, please tell us. >> Yeah. >> Anybody in college 'cause we're so old. >> We are and yeah, this is in the '90s. I hate to say it. >> '90s, the roaring [inaudible]. >> Totally in the '90s. >> Oh no, I know. >> Yeah, it's really a shame. >> Anyway. >> So anyways--Yeah this thing is, you know, a measly 1617 dollars and it's called the scratchaphone. And it's basically a combination of a turntable with a tone arm, mixer, speakers, and rechargeable battery, all kind of shaped like this huge drum that I guess you strap over your shoulders and you can--it's like a portable scratching station that-- >> That looks like a Congo drum, and I don't get that. >> It's just--It looks really [inaudible]. >> Because really like-- >> Yeah. >> --what kinds of DJs are also drum? I don't-- >> It's the whole Congo drum thing and like the jacket with the like, the one love on it and-- >> No, it's not okay. >> It's just--I don't know. I mean to each is own except when he is this. >> Well, who gets this, right? Like a trust of [simultaneous talking] is that it? >> I don't know. You know what there's-- >> [Inaudible] who get this? >> I lived down the street from the park where these guys would hang out with their Congo drums. >> And scratch? >> No. >> Like that's what I don't get, right? >> I know. >> Yeah right. >> Do they all have their own-- [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Right, like they look at a Congo drum and it looks all drum circlely but it's--that still at its heart it is a turntable scratcher, you know the turntable system. >> I just don't understand. >> So maybe this is targeted towards the turntable as that enjoys drum circles. >> Oh, perhaps. >> So we can fit in, you know. >> That is in fact the tooliest breed of all. >> Somebody in our chat room Daniel and Helsa [phonetic] 216 and he thinks it looks tooly. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Anybody who is of sane mind would think that this looks tooly. But you know what, I bet you, someday in the future, you're gonna go to some big blown out concert like Lionel Richie or something like that and you're gonna see some dancers on the side like "chuppy, chuppy, chuppy, chuppy" with these things. [Laughter] Maybe you'll think they're so awesome. That's right, I said Lionel Richie dancing on the ceiling. >> Yeah. Sparkman in the chat room says, suggested Matthew McConaughey might be the target demo for this which is so right on. >> Ooh. [ Laughter ] >> That's right. Thanks, Jeff. Alright. >> Very nice. >> And moving to another fine segment in my humble opinion or what the hell. ^M00:24:58 [ Music ] ^M00:25:03 >> Ooh, Lionel Richie is on the phone. I gotta go. >> Oh, okay. Yeah, we can wait. [ Laughter ] >> What did he say? >> I haven't talked to him yet but I'm sure he's gonna--I'm sure he's gonna beat me out for, you know, totally exposing his plan for his next tour. >> Hey Jason, did he say "hello." [ Laughter ] >> Is it me you're looking for? >> I'm sorry, I needed a complete silence for that really bad joke. [ Laughter ] >> Anyway, on to the weirdest thing ever and-- >> Oh. >> That was weird. >> Yeah. >> What we just did there. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> This thing is really. Actually it's just kind of sad. >> I know. >> It's a little sad. >> It is a little sad but we all--we all have those friends that are germophobes--who are germophobes, excuse me, and who we think are just, you know, maybe a little OCD. They, you know. >> Uh-huh. You got to be really OCD for this. >> They really need to clean everything. Well, there is--there is a product out there now that you can buy them for a gift if you wanna just, you know, feed into that weird-- >> And clutter-- >> --neurosis. >> --out there lives more than possibly imaginable. >> And perhaps irradiate their beverages. >> Uh-huh. >> Which is, you know, my own personal issue 'cause I'm-- >> 'Cause we're all worried about the germs that are on the outside of cola cans and aluminum cans. >> Well, I know somebody who will only use straws with aluminum cans-- >> Are you kidding me? >> --because she is worried about the germs on the top of the can. >> You-- >> I'm not kidding you. She would buy this. I don't know, maybe she wouldn't. I hope she wouldn't. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> I guess I understand, you know, people thinking there is a lot of germs on these cans and they wanna clean it off. But just pop it into a device like this and allow it to take 10 minutes to eradicate the germs. [ Laughter ] >> So yeah, we should--we should-- >> Like is that worth the time? >> This thing by the way-- >> Running it under hot water with some soap or something. >> Seriously, word. >> Yeah, this thing called the coal cleaner. It's like a--it's like a-- >> Yeah, what does that mean? >> I don't know it's like [simultaneous talking] maybe, coal cleaner. >> Okay. >> It has a little bay in which you stick in your Coke, whatever, and it irradiates the top of it for 10 minutes. >> Ultraviolent radiation. Ultraviolet not ultraviolent. >> Violent. [ Simultaneous Talking ] [ Laughter ] >> Oh, sure. It gets pretty violent. Yeah. >> It's just-- >> I just don't understand. >> Yeah, I have something. It's called a rag with soap. >> Yeah, exactly. It doesn't take 5 to 10 minutes, that's for sure. >> I am-- >> And how--do you have enough room on your kitchen calendar for this thing to hug up space? >> No. >> It's like is it usable enough that it requires a certain space in your kitchen forever? I just don't understand. >> I will admit that I can't actually find a link to buy this product so it might just be a concept at this point. >> Oh. >> So that's, you know. >> You could be on to something there. >> I could be wrong. >> Well, if it's a concept, it's a bad one. >> Designer, Neon Pang [phonetic]. >> Yeah. >> Yeah, this could be a concept, yup. >> Yeah. That would explain it. Oh well. >> Well, thankfully that will never be created. >> Yeah. >> It's definitely for the best, definitely for the best, but yeah. If you've got friends like that, I just don't let them do it. >> You don't let them read about this? >> Yeah, yeah, I know. >> Protect them. >> And we're not helping at all 'cause we just passed it along. >> I know. >> Sorry you guys. [ Laughter ] >> Can we--can we move on to that special place in my brain right now? >> Sure. >> Where there is a giant pool and I'm lying in the sun 'cause that's where I wanna go right now. >> Oh, okay. >> I wanna go there in my brain and I wanna take all of you with me to this week's apropo [inaudible] of nothing. [ Cricket Sounds ] >> Nothing. >> Do you hear those crickets? That's my brain right now. >> [Laughter] It's nighttime. >> That little early, it's nighttime in my brain. >> It's midnight, it's 85 degrees outside. >> And I'm lying in a pool. >> And you're floating around. >> I'm floating around on the amphibious lounger. >> Oh. >> Oh, and it's so--it's so lovely. >> Pleasant. >> I'm just floating there on my little floating beanbag. >> Yeah, it's just a beanbag that floats. How ingenious is that. >> I said that this is cool. It features special porous fabric that allows the water to enter and bond with the beans. >> Ooh. >> To enable stability as it floats. >> So not only-- >> Wow. >> --is it a beanbag that floats, but it's kind of a high-tech beanbag that's like-- >> That is so cool. >> That is pretty cool. >> I can totally imagine how that would feel too. >> I know, and you would fall-- >> It would feel stable. >> I would fall asleep instantly. >> Yeah. And I have to say these pictures of women in luxurious pools, I mean I just want--I just wanna be there right now. I just wanna be in that big pool. >> I know. >> And it's not gonna happen. >> No. >> No. >> No. >> But I don't know how much they are gonna cost or anything like that and it doesn't matter because I don't have a pool and we'll never have a pool but-- >> You can, in your imagination. [ Laughter ] >> A girl can dream. And if a girl wants to dream, a girl can dream of an amphibious lounger in blue, red, or yellow. >> That's right. >> Oh. >> In the German colors. >> And it doesn't-- >> The colors of the German flag [inaudible]. [ Laughter ] >> And it doesn't really matter how much they cost 'cause we're all just dreaming it anyway. >> That's right. You know the one downside to--you know if you had one of this, you might really, really get badly sunburned. So just, you know, how bad is that. >> Oh yeah, that would be again just ruin my little fancy [inaudible]. >> 'Cause you would fall asleep instantly and then you get fried to a crisp. >> Yeah [simultaneous talking] these are far too comfortable for your own good. >> That's right. [ Laughter ] >> You need to protect yourself, Kelly. >> You're such a Debbie Downer. >> No, no, I'm helping you. >> No, you're a Debbie Downer. >> I wanna have my little fancy day. >> You're such a--you're such a Lindsay Downer. >> Oh, that's-- >> You know what. >> Take that. >> You're right. Thanks, Lindsay. Thank you. >> I'm just trying to help. >> Oh, you know. [ Laughter ] >> You know it would help. >> It's okay, I'm okay. >> There is only one thing that will help me right now. What is it? [ Laughter ] >> Come on. >> Oh, it's very fancy netbooks. >> Uh-hmm. >> It's Pink Watch. >> Bling Rx edition. [ Laughter ] ^M00:30:47 [ Music ] ^M00:30:54 [ Background Music ] >> Oh, that's so perfect. >> Aha. >> How did you get it all think up? You're magical. >> I ran in here right before the show. >> Oh, he's amazing. >> Did you really? >> I did. >> Jason is just awesome. >> Uh-hmm. [ Laughter ] >> I need just to take a moment to sing his praises. [ Singing ] >> Thank you, that was beautiful even though I was part of it. >> Well, you know. >> I sing my praises all the time. >> I think that's much like the duet that we sing-- [ Laughter ] >> --every Thursday/Friday afternoon. >> Every week. [ Laughter ] >> Every weekend an indeterminate time. [ Laughter ] >> I'm not sure it's as awesome as these ladies with their decorated Acer Aspire. >> I just, you know, we can't--we can't get enough of crazy, crazy netbook decorating schemes and we weren't quite sure where this fell in to the whole segments because it is so blingy and yet it's so-- >> Oh, revolting. >> --so freakishly Pink Watch. >> Uh-hmm. >> So apparently there was a--what is it, some sort of, I don't know, contest in Japan, is that what's going on? >> And that is what's going on. >> Yeah, so there is a contest in Japan to bling up their Acer Aspire One netbooks and bling them, they did. They really--oh, I was just gonna use the worst expression. You know I'm not gonna do it. >> What? >> They really blot it. [Laughter] They were really blinging it and it's already been blottened. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Yeah there are some video for it too. [ Laughter ] >> Oh my goodness. >> Yeah, it's-- >> So these are-- >> So the whole point here is to bling things? >> Yeah, to bling to like-- >> Bling things. >> --bedazzle your netbook. >> Oh. >> And so there are 3. There's in the picture here, there are 3. I think they're probably models. I sort of doubt these are the women. >> The creators. >> Who blung them. [ Laughter ] >> That was probably [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Who blung them, yeah. >> Who blung them. [ Laughter ] >> But there is one--there's one netbook completely covered in pink ruffles and roses and bows. >> Yeah, there it is. >> There's one with heart-shaped rhinestone patterns, and I like that one the best because the model holding it is the best. She's got like giant hair. >> And it's really--it's giant inappropriately colored hair. >> Right [laughter]. >> I mean it's not a hair that occurs even remotely in nature. >> Oh no. [ Laughter ] >> It looks like it's trying to appear in nature. >> Nowhere in the world, I mean it wouldn't--yeah. >> Yeah, it's just--it's all kinds of wrong frankly. >> We're sorry netbooks. >> Yeah. >> We're sorry that this ever happened. >> Yeah, we-- >> It's giving you a bad name. >> It's not--you weren't born like this. >> No, you don't need to have little fake roses and teddy bears affixed to your plain Jane front. >> No. >> It's sad. >> No, it ain't bad. >> You deserve a better fate than that. >> Who said that it is? This came from email, right? >> Oh yeah. >> I don't know. >> I don't know. >> But thank you, the person who sent this to us and we're forgetting your name. >> Yeah. >> Oh, sorry. >> We have something else really completely awesome in our email this week that speaking of things people sent us from Fat Emo Kid, thank you so much. >> Yeah. >> He says--he says "I was browsing the interwebs when I cam across this My Little Pony Doll things that were transformed into movie characters. Now I know it's not too tech related but you know damn well you can't pass up on My Little Pony Chewbacca." And Fat Emo Kid, you are so right. [Laughter] We couldn't pass this up. >> We couldn't stop [inaudible]. >> And in fact I couldn't await to get to this item because this--this joker, My Little Pony is so creepy. >> You just can't stop staring it's all--it's all sort of [inaudible] even around their face and ears like-- [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> The eyeliner. >> It's got a very Robert Smith quality to it. >> It really, really does, doesn't it? [ Laughter ] >> And you--you would expect it to kinda have a little English accent maybe. But yeah-- >> Wow. >> It's, yeah-- >> It's that awesome. >> And that Chewbacca My Little Pony is pretty-- >> Oh, I didn't know it was a Chewbacca. >> Well that--It's crazy because you can't even tell it's a pony. >> Oh yeah, scroll down my friends. >> Oh yeah. >> It's just a Chewbacca. >> Yeah, with just really weird lips. [ Laughter ] >> It's sort of like its pony down behind. >> Yeah, I mean these are very-- >> Oh, that's great. >> Oh there's--I love it as the Edward Scissorhands 1. >> Oh, that's nice. >> Scissorhands. [ Laughter ] >> That's Edward Scissorhands. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> They kind of are. >> That is pretty awesome. >> Who knew that Robert Smith looked like My Little Pony? >> So much like a pony [laughter]. >> You know. Sometimes people look like their dogs and some people just look like My Little Pony. >> I love it. >> Oh goodness. >> There you go. Wow, that's a--that's really cute. You should--yeah, I can't-- [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> You should make your own, Fat Emo Kid. Make it a Fat Emo Kid My Little Pony. >> Yeah, we-- >> Definitely, and send it to us. >> Yeah, and that does bring up a good question if you are a My Little Pony, which My Little Pony would you be? [ Laughter ] >> That's the question that will ponder-- >> That's the question. >> --for this week. >> Yes, so think about that one. [ Laughter ] >> Think about it for a whole week and then get back to us. [ Simultaneous Talking ] >> Yeah, that's why we got lots of time. >> Anyway I think, I think people we have to go. >> We do. >> Lindsay has some sort of thing that she has to do right now. >> Yeah, I'm so sorry guys. >> And so we're a little short this week.
