We start out this episode with some listener mail etc. Thanks!

In this episode, Tony talks about ModNation Racers and Lou talks about things he likes so far in the Cataclysm Beta. Miscellaneous video game news follows.

In TV (~33:10), Tony talks a little about Top Chef with Lou, and moves on to the Emmys. Lou talks a bit about House Hunters International again, as well as Supernatural. Random TV news tidbits after that.

In Movies (~53:05), Tony saw Killshot and Lou saw Piranha 3D. For those of you who aren’t sure what that is, it’s deadly piranha fish. In 3D. Miscellaneous movie news follows.

In the Mash-Up segment (~1:16:00) the news this week includes:

  • LG’s new 30” 3D OLED TV is only $9k.
  • Apple released new iPods, including a new shuffle and Nano. The Nano was the big hit, as it’s a little square with a full multi-touch screen. They also discontinued the iPod Classic. Oops. Oh, and iTunes 10 is out.
  • And Apple’s new Game Center (their gaming connection network) isn’t compatible with the first gen iPod Touch or the original iPhone or iPhone 3G.
  • Samsung has announced the Galaxy Tab, a 7” tablet computer running Android that has both 3G and Wi-Fi N as well as both front- and rear-facing cameras.
  • And now Archos has unveiled a 10.1” tablet running Android, for just $300.
  • Nikon’s new Coolpix S8100 point & shoot digital camera will also shoot 1080p video…for just $299.
  • TomTom’s new Go Live 1000 and Go Live 1005 GPS units go on sale in Europe soon, featuring capacitive touchscreens and a year of free “HD Traffic”. $385 and $460 respectively (the 1005 has a bigger, 5” screen).
  • Seiko will be releasing an “active-matrix” e-ink watch by the end of the year. It looks vaguely similar to the old metal calculator watches Seiko used to make and it looks like it’ll do some neat tricks. Like play card games. It gets its time from the nearest atomic clock and has a bunch of other features that sound promising. No price yet.
  • The Sony Walkman has outsold the iPod in Japan for the first time, taking the lead in sales for the month of August.
  • NASA is readying Solar Probe Plus, which will be launched into the sun’s atmosphere.
  • Apple showed off the new Apple TV, but Amazon fired back with 99 cent unlimited streaming: Pay 99 cents for something you want to watch, and you can watch it “forever”.  Apple TV requires you to pay 99 cents each time you want to watch the thing (or at least for 24 hours once you start watching it).
  • Acer has unveiled the Aspire Revo: A dual-core Atom processor, next-gen nVidia Ion graphics, 1080p video playback, a 500GB hard drive, four USB 2.0 ports, 4GB of DDR3 memory, VGA and HDMI outputs, Wi-Fi b/g/n, gigabit Ethernet and a mini PCIe slot…all in a tiny package that costs just $530.
  • Philips has released another wacky, super-wide TV: This time it’s 3D. The Philips 21:9 3D TV has an aspect ratio like Cinemascope (2.3:1), which means that even the best, most exciting, widest movies would be full-screen and not letterboxed.
  • Rumor: Apple is working on a redesigned antenna for the iPhone 4.
  • Nokia’s N8, sporting a fancy new Symbian3 OS, will hit at the end of September here in the U.S., and in the U.K. right after that.
  • Scientists at MIT have discovered molecules that spontaneously assemble themselves into a pattern that can turn light into electricity. Yes, these are self-creating solar panels.

As always, the end of the episode is when Tony & Lou reveal their votes for this week’s Best & Worst entertainment moments.
