Join in the discussion this week as we cover the dreaded Red Ring of Death attacks on the New Xbox 360, fashion models strip down... their faces, celebrities' uncanny similarities to cartoon characters, beer may be the healthiest alcohol ever, and opening a can of worms as the Obama administration cracks down on piracy issues!
Its a well known fact that for the first few years of the Xbox 360, the platform was marked by constant hardware failure when the infamous 'Red Rind of Death' used to start flashing on the console. Now it seems that the 360 slim will actually be having the same issue. The whole point with the New Xbox 360, as Alex explains, is the preventative 'fail-safe' to guard from the RRoD. When if it thinks it will start to overheat, it will stop itself before all hell breaks lose. The guys then go on to talk about the new Zelda for Wii and more upcoming favorites.

The healthy properties of beer when consumed in moderation are not well understood, according to a new report. The drink is a rich source of vitamins, fibre, minerals and antioxidants and has a relatively low calorific value compared with many other alcoholic beverages, the study says. This study was commissioned by The Beer Academy: the Ultimate Party College, and to some surprise, beer does not contain fat and is not made from chemicals. Drink on, Friends!

Some look pretty good regardless of cosmetic enhancements. Others (#22 for example) might leave you wondering WTF? These look very alien-like, but still for the most part no makeup = better. Also, the guys try and figure out each others' types. Gossip time!

According to the Obama administration, the RIAA, and MPAA, the world economy is pretty much doomed if we don't start prosecuting pirates at home and abroad. Without such a crackdown, businesses will go bankrupt the coalition argues. Biden states, "Piracy hurts, it hurts our economy." The guys play scenario games and break down these piracy issues that are killing the economy every day. Kevin explains that its not so much the hassle of spending money for legal entertainment, its more the instant gratification that torrenting gives them (us).

Thanks to FORD for sponsoring today's episode. The Ford Fiesta has been fun to have around the last few weeks, here are a few of the details on it: The Fiesta comes loaded with technology, as much as many premium cars...a four inch multi function LCD display, push button start, keyless entry and SYNC. Sync technology takes things up a notch, we used it when driving this bad boy all over SF the past few days. With Sync you can control music, directions, maps and much more WITH YOUR VOICE! It is one of the most sophisticated communications systems ever built into a vehicle. Aside from the technology this thing will save you some coin. The 2011 Fiesta gets 40 miles to the gallon, a number that bests over 20 hybrids on the market! In fact, with a Fiesta you can drive from San Francisco to LA on one tank of gas. The Ford Fiesta is made for city lovers, great for getting around and urban clutter. Get out to a dealer and check one out.
