Everyone it's Wednesday march 12.
2014 thanks to a means to our shows 404 on Jeff Bakalar and I'm just new and I really can't all right.
Excellent. How'd everyone do it do is it is Wednesday.
We're almost done yeah feeling good and you know today looking get the supposedly. Is it that it it acts.
He's gonna be such a home march. March.
Can't add more march oh look totally dead is that it's not so much sense like you know if you program them to go over.
RI. Guess he's gotten very here Friday.
Okay okay credit honey don't do this Friday and long he's most certainly hear this Friday arm and that is it I believe.
Dietary planning my trip next month so I get only candidate we've talked about it before there Telefonica months from April 12 through the 26.
On to be going on a trip for the first time.
I'm gonna consider in my life.
An intentional or when I was really young international launch of the motherland yeah yeah the motherland com but I'm not only going to China and going to use Singapore the mother.
Delta the motherland.
And Korea as well DL the mother and her mother and her mother and look hermit mode.
You paint building industry our trip and happening and not traveled at all ever before like I literally just got my passport last week. I'm kind of stripped out about it how to plan the trip where do you go about looking up in to do is Singapore.
I don't hear from people that you know you're looking into it in that country and you know kind in Singapore Korea or Beijing that the throughput that we're going to break it you know cool stuff do you their email out but.
You would not what you there when you do don't get arrested.
Singapore this down the signal slot you have really strict drug trafficking lines so don't do that I can't do with drugs to support the kill to death penalty that sergeant right.
There's an original did you have.
And it goes spur of international travelers to do is forget we're just gonna murder you just kill you it seems totally illogical.
But you are united in our interest obviously when your honeymoon yet on what that last year. Is that you lose Internet here yet.
He's healthy plant something like and I feel the tension in these content apprehension on how much plans to make sure I don't Wheatley kinda get nervous and it has a little nervous.
I don't know I don't think I did much in the planning an island.
Of running and ask it into a candidate.
Yeah. Okay blender you a year you know we've heard it can really now that is totally sexist.
Content you got our got to read an Internet.
Yet when you went to Hawaii he just type in Hawaii like people who grew up plus a lot you can do now a CD Hillary's or she she got books.
She literature on the matter oh really okay.
She got this one I mean I'm sure there's a similar pieces blah you know there she can get an amazingly thorough.
That she had placed at lunch like you know no sticky notes and would that would have liked and not accurate data I don't mean I don't know.
I don't know what it was called the she sounded she snipped it out.
And IE you know I credit that little blue book for having licking their time in Hawaii called.
Singapore. Little more uncharted territory for a subpoena Americans yeah I would not put all my children's book perhaps yet talked to a people of bland.
Not onion which staying with my girlfriend and when I'm sure it'll people thrown into her and also kind of looking on red haired and then just random trouble that's in the Internet but there's still plenty recommendations out there you've got a lot on how hard it we're gonna beat each played for about a week straight to weaken Singapore.
And we can Korea.
And then you can Beijing after that I need recommendations on what do you an alt reserved places and you speech.
Those languages I.
Speak a little bit of Chinese split in Beijing this speak Mandarin Cantonese in the penalty and now we have to show us an incompatible saying that hadn't yet he did speak English pretty look tolerance when incident never worried again.
But I kind of wanna get like and not worth anything to do like it so more like hey what they do New York you wouldn't totally gonna go to tomorrow and you know.
Yeah I can't help you with that but hopefully some protesters can help you get email us the for a fourth cnet.com if you know what I should do.
Excellent. Network today.
You don't going on on this that there are gonna talk about Neil young's music player that I just got excessively put it on X starter go directly to handle.
Although it's kind of a it's garbage in my opinion is practically not garbage that's.
Kind of hyperbole but I don't between 300 dollars all of them are there we're gonna talk about a group of hungry developers that are making brand new games.
For all consoles like that too grainy at and a virtual boy.
That thing I'd do is we're gonna have finally finish at the show where are really bunny your diet skit.
Our President Obama would actually on yesterday's that the tenant between confirmed yet with the back out and actually talk about.
The web traffic that.
Healthcare knocked out and actually get the result of that layer knows about this yet but it's the numbers that are really mind blowing.
There are let's jump right in all mr. Neil Young.
One huge making new music player yes did you have any ideas and you are young with an entrepreneur who did not know that thought he just lived in the cabin in the forest somewhere you had a threat but do we had really heard from you and allow a little bit of pimping and it.
Ono music player.
Duty called amber years so the Canada he's been headlines about it.
The goal has been net and Neil Young went on to kick starter to find it on a music player and what.
Neil Young is a millionaire. Right right I agree Neil Young is they've built these millionaire. Many times over.
I held my giving you money for this do you.
Thinking like that Shaq fu gamely coverage of the day you might check at issue oh that was on update yeah kill meals.
Funding isn't new another bird and the video gamer plus the billionaire.
Yeah hello we did an in our pockets this thing in your theme is that right this is just as bad as people like go on to turn on their that he add likes them exactly you'll out of.
The regular darn me.
Read may aviation amid the personalized I want to put everybody into the prop potential nickel that you.
That the staying in an Internet directory it's funny companion Leo I actually went out but not let this week to promote on a music.
And he opened up the floor to questions after introducing it.
And the frequent question in the act let how what do you mean making off.
Good hailed of the music let people buy through that door yes.
So obviously an opponent music player hardware and the result is gonna have a companions music store along to like iTunes for example right but whereas Apple is a company that's reading the benefits of I can still.
Neil Young the sole benefactor and too liberal behind disposes dancer.
He actually getting give an answer when pressed to get into the questions.
He kind of staggered for a little bit and then closed down the interview you know interviewed over all es I'm sorry did.
Neil Young he did it and that's just.
But okay and they're gonna go on there and it's not necessarily bad PR for him can we don't know exactly how much they're gonna charge for we have ruts activists but.
Here's the background a little on the player and you can.
You can go to the pictures and it right here you're watching video along with us.
So other portal player sort of this.
Total and out and they Tobler around shaped music players like sort of triangle shaped music player.
And it specializes in playing.
Black lots of audio files.
And that's not new technology should note there is.
On top or that you can download for free for the iPhone or whatever Android phone you have that complaint locked looked filed the dodge needs space.
You need based or it so that's why this is gonna be 120 gigabyte player on the net because FLAC files are usually not significantly.
Are larger than regular MP3.
But the reason for that is because the quality is locked here on some black you get up to 9216. Kilo bits per second.
What is considered a high resolution hasn't heard whether or not you'll be able to tell the difference between a 190 do you birth to 9200. I think you'll be able to talk to you could probably tell.
But think about a couple of the total audio file.
This being about music like this and when you're paying a lot of money you're basically paying a huge premium for it if you can get you can get an iPod or.
I tuned for two dollars went to a 160 gigabyte iPod not to pre 250 chair yeah.
But I feel like there's a confirmation bias that exists with black audio file it's more like well.
You won't know the improvement in audio quality you'll get until you spend the extra money to buy this proprietary music player to listen to it.
But you can't compare unless you buy into it does that leg well of course is gonna sound better.
But didn't really matter if you're always listening to MP3 you won't of the different anyway exactly.
And you also have to buy headphones obviously that can support the better audio otherwise you'd like.
It's like watching TV like HDTV through and I don't share it did com.
It also please.
MP threes and mention you can do backward compatibility compatibility and play MP three's on it is well and but he's looking right so obviously you're gonna have to buy these black.
Filed for it and they're ripping them directly from the master file to the recording process so that's really cool.
All this thing about this is that the high resolution digital albums are gonna cost anywhere between fifteen dollars and 25 dollars.
So the problem with the music industry right now that people are willing to pay a lot from you pay a matter what the quality.
There's really like no indication that this can be successful. And that the problem and annually on sort of presenting this and if you watch the trailer for it to protect emitted just.
Unless you're a young on the Julia yes yes and it's gonna revolutionize and reinvigorated not music on it wouldn't live long.
Q I mean I don't know who these people are gonna have donated so much money but I guess.
That's the beauty kick starter.
Anything to really get funding it has to write a book write an audio file of the perfect.
Later that did a perfect group to advertise expenses. File or expensive audio.
Hot product like this meaning clearly they're willing to devote all with their wallets for a regard but I also think.
You know you need mainstream sort of accessibility and attraction that yet day in the average person who listens to music.
Anything up to their year as long as it has something.
Leaking out of it right yeah I think they just simply do not understand. The difference against.
Any schmuck and tell the difference between good sounding stuff.
And awful sounding so relative date most people don't.
Seem to care dad but saying we can tell everyone has Iceland has yet he'll let you confirm me.
I heard you had bones for a living here at CNET editor did you hear when a matter record before also claim and supposedly it.
And I actually are to listen to Bluetooth headphones because the benefit of not having now wire to trip me up and walking around is better really neat.
Then having the extra quality it's worth that tiny little diminishing.
Audio quality I think blu cute.
Audio sounds light and you did that yes it's that.
It sounded like people telling little Michael instrument it and so bed and like.
All these cars have it in and now this sounds like trash. It's where that.
While you get used to travel you shouldn't have to hate that sort of and I know I'm kind of I'm kind of confused myself as an audio expert or whatever and album my point is that there's different applications on what you want.
In terms of audio Redmond had you just want to convened national life.
Other times when you're at home you really paying attention in the music.
Maybe then you want flock had ported tripping you up all you'll.
Every had a little wire is really hurting you up yet because I you know picking up jacket they're taking off messenger bag to things like that you have to do that leave quickly get the real problems please.
My point is that I think the number one to turn to people actually buying.
The owner of music player initiate.
You that it could Tobler relative to the perfect description for it but who the hell want to put them like this into their pocket yet fit perfectly raid in your triangle pot Fiat the those bad Andy and the reason why you know Apple product or any kind of sushi.
Like its new young and vulnerable to hear that about it happening who advise you on the shape and a product. That.
Yet to talk about average about seventy megabits per file.
Percent which is crazy luck look at it in a big deal what you'd like a thousand that it has.
That's not too bad but anyway you can actually still find on a music which could potentially get a player in your hand sooner.
It the more money it CF 33 days ago there was that super 800000 dollars.
It actually moving right now as we're talking about it but it's currently at 1000680. Or.
1465. It to me that I hate and everything else and that created the that's ridiculous.
So they go.
Don't worry though there will be had allegedly in the near future that you can buy and all could be audio file worth his.
What are you need like a whole ecosystem in either very mild the right place at the title doesn't come with headphones.
About the fourth or music player that optimize the listening to podcasts. Because they like it sounds like it and an.
To be sick if you have but I would never done that I don't want to break into advantage of people away noon seemingly it is.
Arc he'd only young at heart and I don't need a lot of beautiful view is absolutely he's one of our one of our you know.
Country's greatest songs singer songwriter music.
But he's also.
Quite a comment and yet but artists shouldn't move into hardware. Let alone though.
Adopted or not whatever it gets forgotten it doesn't.
So let's move on here I guess if we talked about tight all right he did and got how cloud gaming between it changed.
Or. Or notching it or not changed it into music into to it it's gonna take account to open.
And so much about technology is about a week right.
Yet again I'm just words yeah okay I dislike is the person I ever really looked over Canada and it just does go into the got to get a little further away you on that that I. Regardless silicon technology is about Easter eight and I'm glad to see that at least some people in the gaming world are trying to revive old console are you not really good natured grin okay so sure that you wanna introduce the question is what about all the legacy gaming console and are left with no title currently coming out here and then there'll broke into an.
I mean you find me a really.
Reliably working and again at all.
What do you have on ultra brilliant.
Systems manager and did you and it does seem to hold up yeah. Actually they all invented CD though there is probably wearing out over time that is laser light where where you keeping those console I let out his home you know a couple more sound like.
These stockpiled console as Netflix.
You know you let go and he's gonna go that through there yet but who cares they're old and you can you know you don't ever go back to those like you would watchable movie not on the console navy's lead to calm and you know yes certainly that or like some things like how do we you guys backwards that is a Campbell didn't do pernicious and maybe you'll be it's about hopefully at the is going to be in fact the guys over at animal New York the one of our favorite blog update physically unhurt and interviewed a group of game developers. That are home brewing in their own new modern titled.
For console like the super Nintendo yet RE and it all the way back in the game boy advance the baggage and it does an even the virtual.
What do you remember about the virtual. That you don't want none universal plug but I always remembered going in to ma look at Toys 'R' Us and trying it out yet.
And you can back and a child who is easily impressed.
On just being like you and it's duke in the words you knew right away at like nine usual that there is no way this is gonna work yet.
Let that I thought to do is we're looking at the virtual boy right now in the article.
It's sort of this DR. Display that on a tripod.
And you basically put your feet into the goggles which has to display is that it is that I Easter displays the reading environment and a cool little 3-D effect that happens.
If I 3-D B read.
And yet and it definitely reduces read sectors shallower that was all that graphic as little weird.
But anyway it was a very popular console obviously and it did twenty years old it was 1990 time yeah the other thread.
Only twenty game ever released for the virtual boy in which I didn't know.
And because of that and then a lot of home group have taken to the console to develop new gain toward which I think is really cool.
And I used to go to read the article it goes really adapted to how they do that they basically take apart existing cartridges and replace. On a prostitute incited it.
Which they gained a deep program themselves I hope you realize that there's been a huge.
Sort of explosion in popularity. Of games meant to look and play.
Like this a yet.
Yet and that and I definitely like the output so it's like okay and then sing like oh no on pays for anything don't mean it makes money where it will do you do you shoot it what you're gain out on steam and people buy and he's money right.
So I'm really struggling to understand and novelty here for the novelty you can no hardware to play and you know I have posted playing mind crack or something on the PC which need to look.
Kind of old eight bit music and things but you don't get a benefit of like.
Loaned to the arcade or even put the cartridge loader that's like only I think I guess detect if you're really looking for that day yet you got the being is it really only appeals to. Godlike.
You know the guy who gave energy for the article a good collector named Michael commented to actually hold the Guinness world record.
For most did you gain owned he had to over 121000 gains.
This out don't obviously the default time painters for Michael Michael.
Heavily invested emotionally and financially clear yet definitely financially because he's not made any money that he actually start to kick started last year.
To find a new game they'd like to regain it into one Ukrainian cartridge.
That it is really cool to get funded it did get apparently understood people like that deserve to get an end.
I particularly if there's a market for a great what does he do it what do you do for a living.
I heat it's funny he actually teaches a class on video games at a local college and then he also write for magazines about that you gain aka.
And he'll work they gained a hot.
You dock it stopped a war over the weekend they can collect that it can't that the but.
Not very likely you really figure all that out yet and I feel the does that labels aside as you probably typical of money and I just think like Michael it clearly accounted individual these programming hacking for.
A legacy color channels.
This whole console thing thrown on steam key make money yet I mean if you're in it for the money that definitely is not.
Hey look what ever makes you happy happy happy with your life of the deal right right that's pretty cloned via photos only an idiot I do.
Line and his movies like now I want to do that actually contains little. Death.
You could look at him and you are looking into the new look again great person to be use linked.
Forty years forty years and nobody died young in forty years in the June 20 years maybe that's just mean right now law.
You look to it behind and do you do that you are finally.
Talk about what our president did the other day.
Yes I go to.
Depending on who you argue we did think this is a really good idea or it's incredibly irresponsible.
We're talking about is yesterday President Obama made it guest appearance on Zach Galifianakis does show.
On Funny or Die in our buddy Scott Walker man does is true.
For for a long night dark man who put together. Funny dies between you burn bright yet we had him on the show I.
I want a day and I could go back and looked and an that we had gone document our show.
I think we asked him who he really really want to do it coupon that the only problem.
We should go back and do you dad which makes sense because according to use some articles and read about this and talking to conduct and that it had actually been in progress servers once a button and it finally happened but at the dock for the White House for a while pocketing more crap.
So explains between confirm to people that haven't seen between different it is the interview show where his jacket and packet.
Kinda like removed his brain in terms and he did read mine and the person threatened talked to celebrity's about.
Things and says.
Openly attend this stuff rat but it obviously all in colonial joking and include fine all the amazing thing about this.
And he is that not only did they land President Obama and bush.
Radavan seem to play along and you'd hit a really good job it acting yeah.
And it's pretty neat.
I'm really glad yeah I did a great job with that episode procedure and shockingly you know it's.
You know one of the best things they've done yeah I think it's really Miami's there's.
And it doesn't happen I really like to Michael there that your Bradley Cooper one yet but this one to Berkeley has before they get into the reason why he's there which is to promote the health care act.
Data back and forth to each other about how crappy angles it is it is great.
And the best to let out an act and act.
Obama how to deal with the situation in north IKEA right there.
Please let them but he Elliot lake city sent ambassador Rodman older yeah he just brilliant idea are they also talked about me.
He did and how does it feel to the the left blank and it seems.
I just Google I first heard that but that it really is great go watch it but the mating sort of byproduct of this.
Let you know obviously the president you know that we have a problem with like creating call to action and awareness about health care doctor of drives and I was really the the Internet is the killer really like the the the idea behind. His appearance.
Yeah crux of it was to send young people to.
Health care Bianca all right did you literally you without skipping a meeting about Ukraine ram dash and exactly.
So it actually earned on your died six million views and left of the day because it cannot yet get to do that already six million.
And declining. Kind of crazy as it is kind of worked exactly the way they wanted to do they wanted to create a viral video.
And that's when they as a sort of approach when you're gonna help them out there.
And the White House decided that between you going to be does that venue.
And is totally did that now this interview is download number one traffic driver to healthcare dot com and it's exactly what they wanted to do you and I mean I get it.
And you know he's he gets very literal and a and a moment and you'd get serious for saying he's like.
Young people just don't seem to get it.
Right they don't get that they need health care ray and has limited amount time for you to protect coverage and that in my hardest messages to commit about the entire getting young people to do something just getting young people to be able you know like.
As healthy as you are you might get hit by a car and it's not gonna be your fault right on the gonna happen and you're gonna have to get surgery or whatever it needs and it.
Brilliant image slick inexplicably that I haters out there and yes.
Is blown Beaumont on number one of my favorite heater would of course beyond the little Riley to yesterday after the video came out.
He actually talked about his screenshot.
Doctor put an end user the argument that using comedy to promote obamacare is not okay because Abe Lincoln would not have done and self.
And because super Dave Lincoln died in a heater he that he was being entertained. I should.
You of of anybody would have a Lincoln wanted to delicate TV wasn't a doubt been extended for another hundred that you're here we're never that held.
Well of course and I've done it all right now seeing that you heard me now now Ding it too is you know 75 plus audience right right years old I know a lot of people watch him and talk about the Asia which the idea.
Pneumonia let's talk and audits.
And you heard me and it is ordered that minority gave it the attention of young people you have to make it into them kind of joke video looked.
I mean there's something there ready to head about it just gonna supply OK I get it and I don't think people they like it slow it thinks thinking.
Do the lowest common denominator I don't agree with that now how are you want in love with Dave yeah pocket anyone's pocket CNET.
When the entire basis of that competition is mostly.
And that's all it.
It's just caveman on their own crappy did you you mean. All right.
O'Reilly he's talking about Obama or polity and and generally like PU brutal way to the bank campaigns sure what is it still.
Mudslinging yeah and a little and at the bottom of the barrel man him and Obama not to look.
I'd I don't care what your politics are about Obama is right you like and you hate and you cannot argue with the fact this is very effective and marked yes yes from the same people that brought you Obama on red.
And that was equally helpful level.
Gone are sorted people get educated about something and certainly Funny or Die and he's a little bit of redemption after that hover board video that we talked a little about they were.
They were behind them mountain behind yet they cannot afterwards.
And that it though it's Cuba absolve I guess Monica and I guess they'll.
Are all right great show saying thanked Iran for tuning in 866 oral board CNET.
That was the phone number.
Yet it up talking about it and I edit that they had to beat both just beat but we'll get back keynote seriously get in touch of the send the email before or.
At cnet.com. You can reach I don't read it Twitter FaceBook is the grand anyway you want to tell you that.

Believe it is as the loss before I don't do any reason to have Stuart and we'll be back tomorrow.
Again right hey Steve years Guttenberg is on the show.
And he got some I'll have a great Wednesday I'm Jeff Bakalar I'm Justin new Hummer illness did in the form horse show high tech low brow he got it tomorrow.
