Ep # Title Original Airdate Link MP3
90 Where we're going to Awesometown Thursday, May 1, 2008 [1] [2]
Today Wilson misses the boat so we get Justin Yu and Ariel Nunez to replace him. We talk steampunk, iPhone VS. Treo, how to regrow fingers, and what it's like to actually read a book. Don't ask. All this plus a special trip to Awesometown on the 404.
91 Where we're having a mega estrogen show Friday, May 2, 2008 [3] [4]
Amtrak doesn't care how much you paid, there's no way you're getting on this train. Plus, CNET's Caroline McCarthy is one of the sexiest geeks alive and Rana Sobhany joins us from Aux Interactive.
92 Where Randall hates the majesty of film Monday, May 5, 2008 [5] [6]
Iron Man takes the box office by storm, Indiana Jones 4 looks promising, and Speed Racer most definitely will not be good (we promise). Plus, Amy Winehouse pulls out of a James Bond movie, and plastic surgery officially makes people look funny.
93 Where we can't keep our eyes open Tuesday, May 6, 2008 [7] [8]
Michael Breus joins us, author of Beauty Sleep and We basically sit and bask in his sleep wisdom. Want to know how long is long enough, or how much is too much? Listen to Michael, he knows what's up.
94 Where 320 people can't be wrong Wednesday, May 7, 2008 [9] [10]
Libe Goad joins the guys of the 404 to talk about how the Wii gets hacked, GTA IV gets a lot of cash, get in shape with Wii Fit, Boom some Blox and some silly-ass stop signs. We also make fun of her husband, but shh...don't tell him.
95 Where it's game over man, game over Thursday, May 8, 2008 [11] [12]
Today we talk with Doug Bandes from Broadband Enterprises about the new Web shows the network has to offer. Plus, we'll spend some time talking more about The Dark Knight, as well as Comcast capping your bandwidth. So come take a listen--if your ISP allows it.
96 Where 'ANARCHY IN THE U.K.!' Friday, May 9, 2008 [13] [14]
Rory Reid from joins us to talk all things tech. iPhones won't help you get laid in the U.S. or the U.K., Speed Racer looks like an abomination and Randall's stuffy nose ruins the show.
97 Where Jimmy Fallon will never host The 404...he's not talented enough Monday, May 12, 2008 [15] [16]
Today we talk about the infamous $30 a month Sprint SERO plan, the 3G iPhone, and the new BlackBerry Bold. Also, we gladly watch as Speed Racer crashes at the box office and cry as Jimmy Fallon gets the late night love he doesn't deserve. Plus, we pimp Legends, Myths and Hieroglyphs, a brand new play by one of our favorite guests, Demetrius Wren.
98 Where once you're lucky, twice you're good Tuesday, May 13, 2008 [17] [18]
Author Sarah Lacy joins us to talk tech, sexism, and elitist Fraggle Rock.

Eric Litman and Rana Sobhany stop by The 404 to wish Randall the best. We'll talk about HBO on iTunes, Google Street View face blurring, and how Speed Racer lied about how well it did at the box office!
100 Where $1.8 Billion is a lot to pay for The 404 Thursday, May 15, 2008 [21] [22]
To most 404 listeners, it was a regular day. To us, it's the day two of our favorite things changed forever. Thing 1? Randall Bennett is now dead to us. Thing 2? We now can claim Charlie Sheen in our six degrees of separation. That's right, CBS has acquired The 404 for $1.8 billion dollars.... through the subsequent acquisition of CNET. We wax poetically on what it'll be like when Randall is relaxing in his Jackson Heights Jampad, free of the strains of The 404, and how we're planning on stealing every Letterman routine and expecting CBS to not sue us.
101 Where we're putting the Yu in useless Friday, May 16, 2008 [23] [24]
Today we start a new era of The 404 as Justin Yu officially joins the crew. Rana Sobhany chats with us about the Weird Old Men on the Block, how women prefer ugly men, and the MySpace controversy. Plus we'll touch on the Digg office perks, Prince Caspian, and Ellen DeGeneres marrying Portia de Rossi.
102 Where we're biting off a little more than we can actually chew Monday, May 19, 2008 [25] [26]
Today David Karp from tells us why we should all be tumblelogging. Plus we'll get a movie review from Justin and Dave about--brace yourself--Teeth. All this and the new Cleveland show, Indiana Jones 4, and Uwe Boll's craptastic Postal movie.
103 Where the opinions of Phil J. Ryan are not necessarily those of the 404 Tuesday, May 20, 2008 [27] [28]
The legendary Phil Ryan makes his last appearance on The 404 as a CNET employee as we talk about the Netflix player, the 3G iPhone, and strange clouds above China right before the earthquake.
104 Where you don't mess with the Yu-Tang Clan Wednesday, May 21, 2008 [29] [30]
YU-TANG CLAN AIN'T NOTHING TO BUCK WITH! Founding members the Yza, Method Man, and Ghostface Killah (aka Tony Starks) keep it cutty and explore tech's first format war; skyrocketing Wii Fit prices; losing water on film; and our culture's lousy obsession with movie remakes. McLovin and Sr. Sean Connery also stop in to discuss Mr. Bakalar's questionable fashion choices.
105 Where Wilson Tang is the new American Idol Thursday, May 22, 2008 [31] [32]
Now that Wilson is the new American Idol (not to mention the perpetual Chinese Idol), he can't stop talking about his celebrity chumleys. Today, we discuss his American counterpart David Cook, everyone's beloved Dick Gaywood, Jessica Alba-Tang, Arnold Shawarazanegarradudebro, Saving Paris's Privates, Grandpa Ford, and more dregs of society.
106 Where we've got Belmont Fever Friday, May 23, 2008 [33] [34]

107 Where Wilson couldn't make it Tuesday, May 27, 2008 [35] [36]

108 Where Caroline McCarthy loves to Tumble Wednesday, May 28, 2008 [37] [38]
Veteran 404 guest Caroline McCarthy of makes a guest appearance on today's borderline indecent show. We touch on Hello Kitty fetishism, Pork and Beans, Reggie Love, the perils of softcore Youtube porn, and our secret pickup tactics.
109 Where we do it it slowly... Thursday, May 29, 2008 [39] [40]
Fat kids jump (all right, just shout) for joy--this episode is dedicated to you and your far-reaching obsession with foodstuffs. Oh and speaking of fat, today we talk about Michelle Malkin and take an in-depth look at the miracle of personal deep frying, kooky Japanese space beer, the marketing morons at Blockbuster, and Sex and the City AGAIN! One of these days, we're finally going to admit that we're SATC fans.
110 Where it's not a virus, it's a worm Friday, May 30, 2008 [41] [42]
Mess with the best, die like the rest! We don't hack the planet, but we do spout off about the MediaDefender's hack (code name: IRONY), pedagogical foursomes, John Wayne as a weapon, and Korean child star Ju-On's surprise appearance in Denver. We also bust out the old squawk box for some much needed Disney sing-alongs.
