It's August 6 twentieth and it's the -- New York on your back I am Wilson tang and Justin new ended the show where we can do this the easy way or the heart. Do you view -- outlook and yeah. Download you open that the future I'd go through and we ran into him. -- ever again and I haven't read the future and to yeah billowed -- -- movement -- -- -- -- -- so cool there feel like wearing cowboy -- if it. I think actors to flee from them do these mean -- -- and then do these these Q and leave it looks like grain -- the macho man anything. Yeah and others like run in Sunday's the right kind of -- out I have like a revolver with the help. She used to review a revolving. To put managed to yeah. -- -- Man let yeah yeah my favorite like watching them -- -- the Helmsley. That this still be in view of the very old idea record that literally people are getting -- out -- oh yeah that that aren't you lie there like the lower -- -- -- -- I keep telling us all accidentally -- -- around now you're right yeah I think tanks rolling through black guys that go around. Look at the New York. I love that what was going on everyone's hope you have agreed Friday we're having agreed it via -- -- Hasn't found that this morning there was some really awesome is me and just need that just needs yet yes will appreciate this super site where with -- there is a new. Sequel to Batman and -- of asylum to be Batman -- city. -- -- CD markedly since that are on that he does not it makes no sense because -- but the name of Arctic island yet you can policies as well I'm sure it's also the the area. Gotham city is the fictional town in which that man. Resides. So I don't know why it's called market city it doesn't matter and the video is actually on YouTube. You there's there's one on the website and and that -- -- it's not much to use you -- the environment and now it's pretty cool via by. They get it's -- -- so -- you don't -- the game play mechanics or anything like that right but. I had so much fun with this games is probably one of my favorite games of all time that easily -- Just that the -- variation like the scarecrow scenes. The whole stale stuff. The -- -- reference pretty much every villain in the Batman universe including people like calendar. -- I like that. Oh yeah riddles are those satisfying where you sort -- go around and you look for all these Easter eggs in the gain the game is beautiful like there's mark Hamel. -- the joker awesome. So good he was the voice of the original -- -- -- cartoon -- you're correct -- so we'll -- and -- the big reveal for this or the trailer is that the joker is back yet because at the because he's the main -- and Batman -- from the silence. You -- the whole time China kill. And -- when you do who you beat the game. And you expected to be gone in the series and he's not he's not he's had to. Unlike us where they've come. Up you know let's switch gears and Dan and I was watching in the dark nine nine. -- -- And they were too I think if he that you're did not die he'd be back in and -- well I think. Almanac as the joker reviewed -- wires and like. Chris Nolan. -- -- the at least when villain from the previous film to move on into the second yeah. Like that's why -- -- course America he said very. He does that. I was that here I'm here -- what should happen. Some okay I did this Veronica in the -- Batman begins scarecrow was like this under the you leave playing character and it sort of looks like Canadians. I mean opportunities that these kinds. -- don't get hammered this smell and skated in ski -- people know though not in short if you -- All linking people. But anyway. We got it a year for this new game its its gonna be full of 2011 and boom you can pre order it now on the web that I mean what's the point of -- We might as well just give any everyone you know free -- her hooked up my I don't know if -- I have -- days. Like that it also watching true it makes you wanna go back to -- the -- -- I think I'm gonna do it yeah hesitant but the you know it's funny you would love this game used some of them will let you -- I'm -- -- hate video games to maybe -- don't kind of like you know. You hate video games just because you're you're you think this is like he video games. No it's not it's like when people in -- out and actually yeah yeah always the popular announcement about every single piece of music and I just don't like -- combative and I don't and I'll say this about art of asylum. Is it is probably one of the easiest games to pick up -- did mechanics are just. Almost perfectly -- the game yes who do you want view that too close to sports for -- -- -- not -- it's born old and you know like that I could kind of had a hand eye coordination required to play video game it's too reminiscent of sport I mean -- -- -- items like through the streets of Manhattan that video game yet. It like crazy and favorable way. Certify. Oh -- I -- -- -- my days now no you're not the same thing for you. Well -- it should go back in -- now it didn't make it for the game boy park. My problem I'm not sure you've ever. I -- big -- morning -- we. -- -- you portable sure as one of the rumors now means that there's a new. In the new iPod Touch which is no big surprise surprise every September they sort of do but this one right now there's leaked photos of Mac rumors dot com idea of a front facing camera on the new iPod touches right so. I'm surprised that this. I mean I'm -- and that's super is -- IMac I'd be more surprised that they put a camera on the back of the camera a bright -- on on the iPod idea yet. That would be IE I hope they would yeah yeah I mean like I think figures just gonna do this just because. They're pushing face -- not only that when you think of an iPod -- an iPod Touch you think of like. Mobile Wi-Fi aspect of it yet is the only way face -- gonna work -- -- do that so Gilbert. So -- I mean. Well there's find out soon and I I think attitude about -- thing about this you know I think is almost the perfect time for them to cut the iPod classic I would be surprised -- the iPod Touch just became the iPod. All though because the people get so much more hard drives yet. -- -- There's enough people out there who want a 200 gigabyte I applied I won't even he was the highest six point six in I -- current 320s and -- -- people really have 320 gigabyte -- is it that I have. I haven't had a lot have a maybe a hundred K I was gonna say have a close to -- regret it but I got a couple hundred gigs but the thing is is that. I think you know it might behoove Apple to release a 120 gigabyte iPod Touch him and then just drop the iPod right. Okay and how much money they really making on the but are they like your but I will there be a 120. Away iPod Touch -- I don't I just don't -- we'll right now is a 64 gives -- the Central Asia is like a decent two years to build the capacities as well of -- yeah I -- if there's a lot of economics involved than that but the big thing is that the the chips. Aren't -- overpriced brick people thought they were to be that's -- there's no 64 gigabyte version of via. IPhone threat so the I I up until I got my evil I would buy this new iPod Touch. Really -- because I want to you know I want them solid music do -- -- -- the -- look like the -- I don't think the iPod -- -- -- good music -- I mean I don't flick it -- I actually prefer the scroll -- and -- little -- -- design of the -- there is no doubt in my mind the original iPod is still by far the best music player and it comes to find new music controlling it and I can you can -- you can. Pretty much is -- with a player in your pocket you can't do that with the iPod and wrote on the biggest the hardest things for me right over here yeah. But it by you know I think Apple's really pushing to -- Expand Iowa us and he's -- -- easy ways. For people who are Verizon are -- you the other carriers. I really really see it happening. I think there's probably got 50% chance that dropped the via pipelines and -- -- there's a market for standalone music players can -- on a Smartphone without it it and I don't get a standalone music player it's part because of -- -- -- running -- which did you buy the shuffle from the without actually spinning hard and this shuffle the nano or something. -- You know it's still make -- -- -- I don't know why I he'd never seen anybody using that -- they did put him in vending machines that you. A quarter and isn't that it's probably the biggest product mistake Apple's ever -- yeah really I do not understand -- indeed remotely without a screen. Think the -- overpriced but like if you're willing to pay for the look human right now if -- keep it is defending the keys that. I'm sure Hillary did yeah. Is over place yes definitely I just. Those who would -- the gamecube and speaking of Apple who put the story in there and Dan guy takes hate Apple hate to ha. Story Jeff this is fun for the I do not hate. I criticize -- -- not he had -- I -- so this is funny like just what you read this post I consider to be closed on Gizmodo says 845 year old moving to new or is willing to pay 14100 for room -- -- But there's no -- -- -- he would put up with any iPhone iPad users. So apartment sharing candidates must -- Apple produces not if anybody had any Apple -- At -- at all -- no iphones no iPad no facts no Mac books it's great to create this list that's the listing says is a bunch of programs number one no iPhone you've got. -- you have a anyone that is so there -- mortal soul of the job. I don't care of it as it does when you need water plants. Or care that -- -- -- a function. And of speak and spell and don't care that your -- is the new and exciting features and edit them and make everybody icons to got the apartment show him their phone -- -- -- -- if not now you know you could hit Apple you do all this like this is does my -- in a little bit too far. But I think he can steals his feet -- and -- the next line yeah he says. -- up -- he would highly -- someone. Who plays StarCraft 22. Gotta get the -- became if your Flickr to. And no bronze leaders what does that. I'm underground Starker Galindo. What I don't really need constantly year battle dot net profile that I don't know. -- -- this -- -- this guy he's he's he's he's got within the U. Isn't it I hope the I hope -- yeah -- easier parity I can't I don't think this is totally real I just think it's sort of like. -- -- -- I don't know maybe -- Kelly called Apple heads big Mac guy's got a big Mac big Mac you can like that a lot. So basic upon meeting Shamir for I'm gonna call confronting and I will that you would have the opposite Qaeda had the person who live there would have to you know PCs whatsoever yet known only Mac -- ha -- At the -- -- put an Apple. You know -- like this. I think that's pretty good I'm looking guy I think a funny I thought it was funny up until -- our -- -- pores in them like.
