Show notes
It's another fantastic TR podcast episode. Our tech news section is full of discussion about everything from the new (and irritating) push towards 16:9 displays to the notion that Nvidia might exit the chipset business. Scott pits the Atom against the Nano in our tech topics section, followed by the smallest wireless mouse adapter on the market, our editors' favorite mouse designs, and Scott's entry into the $700 chair club.
