If you’d walk around the G4 offices for the past few weeks, you’d notice a certain buzz in the air. While it might be snoring due to long hours, or someone laughing uncontrollably because they’ve had a bit too much coffee…it’s because the big show is approaching. Less than two weeks away E3 2009 invades the Los Angeles Convention Center. Or as I like to call it, ground zero.  I’m glad the ESA and all the companies decided to get rid of the last two years of E3 mess and have returned the show to it’s former glory. It’s about damn time.

Letter From The Director: There's A Buzz In The Air

While I was prepping to be on X-Play’s pre-E3 show today (airing May 28th), my mind was running rampant about all the pre-E3 rumors and speculation. What’s real? What’s fake? From a new PSP, to a motion controller contraption thingamabob for the Xbox 360 and/or PS3, to Gran Turismo 5 (and it’s smaller PSP counterpart) to Pikmin 3, something mysterious from Kojima Productions, and a new Zelda or Mario for Wii, it’s pretty exciting.  And those are just the rumors. Who knows about the surprises!

First Impressions: Windows 7 Beta

Posted January 8, 2009 - By Brian Leahy

Microsoft's biggest push here at CES 2009 is Windows 7 and I got to spend some time with the most recent beta version of the OS. Is it better than Vista? Yes. Is it better than OS X? No.

Don't get me wrong. Windows 7 is looking to be a great release for Microsoft with many improvements to the user-interface as well as the way files are organized. Microsoft is also thinking to the future and including full touch support for hardware manufacturers to take advantage of. The HP demo unit they had running touch used IR to track touch and wasn't anywhere near as accurate as a capacitor-based touchscreen, but it did support multi-touch.

As for your documents, Microsoft is actually going to one-up Apple in the way they are organizing things like pictures, music, and movies. Windows 7 will create virtual folders for different document types that don't require files to be moved to show up. Instead, you point the virtual folder to several different locations to check for documents. It takes the concept of music libraries and expands it to all files. Very smart.

See video of Sony's entire press conference here!

Here we go folks, Time for Sony's Press Conference, which brings me to the Las Vegas Convention Center for the first time at CES 2009. The floor is still being setup, but Sony's got their booth alive and kicking complete with food and an open bar. Snazzy.

We're about 10 minutes from starting and they just tricked me by opening up their booth making about 40 new rows of chairs in front of me. I thought I was in the 7th row... Excuse me while I move closer.

4:15 PM PT - Ok, that's better. Now I'm in the real 6th row and a pair of 3D glasses was waiting on my new seat. Sony is showing off some new 3D HDTV technology that I'm guessing will be demoed for us live, on stage. It's taking longer to fill the seats than Sony expected, but the DJ is spinning some bitchin' house music so we're ready to get this party started up in here (up in here). It remains to be seen if we'll lose our minds and go all out.

4:30 PM PT - One drink down and we're ready to go. Rick Clancy is appearing to us on the Jeopardy stage via TV to welcome us to the press conference. Jeopardy will tape 11 shows from CES.  Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune were the first syndicated game shows to be broadcast in HD. That's Sony Pictures Television, but Rick's got more for us as Sony is an "entertainment powerhouse."

We previewed Rob Corddry's new web series Childrens' Hospital on TheFeed on Monday, and told you all about the show, which is currently running on www.thewb.com, with 10 episodes that make up Season One. Now, as promised, we have an exclusive interview with Mr. Corddry about the show, how it was made, and what's coming next, both at the hospital and on the big screen. Read on, Feed reader!

I’m on the phone with Rob Corddry, of Children’s hospital fame:

I am Rob Corddry

So Rob,  tell us how this whole thing came to pass.

I was in Los Angeles Children’s Hospital waiting for my daughter and wife to come out of an exam room cause we had a pulled a ligament out of place in her arm.  So we were waiting for her and so through the emergency room double doors came a gurney being pushed by like five doctors and seven nurses all with IV’s in their hands and yelling things like, ya know, "Stat!" and "CG" and all that s**t, "code whatever." And there was a LifeFlight helicopter bringing up the rear, like it was a classic ER moment.  And I thought, "wow, this is awesome." And then I realized I’m in a children’s hospital, and those IV bags are tiny for a reason.  And I had the most inappropriate reaction to the most horrifying thing ever, and it sort of fell into place.
