Show notes
Clocking in at under an hour, our shortest episode ever still manages to pack a punch. TR biz guy Adam Eiberger starts us off with a quick recap of our recent Acer Aspire One netbook giveaway. We reveal both the winner (for those that haven't read the news) and the official answers to our three entry questions. Geoff, Cyril, Jordan, and Matt have a little round-table chat about the fresh Windows 7 news coming from PDC2008. Cyril follows up by sharing first impressions of his new MacBook, after which Geoff summarizes his thoughts on Western Digital's latest Caviar Green hard drive. Finally, the podcast gets up close and personal as Jordan quizzes Geoff about his childhood, likes and dislikes, and non-tech hobbies.
