With Cyril fresh from Computex, Scott and Geoff primed with new reviews, and Jordan armed with lame jokes... there's plenty going on in this episode of the podcast. After a few listener mail shoutouts, we kick things off with a slice of Computex, relaying the experience of one of the world's largest tech tradeshows and looking at the highlights. Dovetailing with the discussion of Asus's Eee Pad, Geoff explains what he believes makes the perfect tablet.

Now that the iPhone 4 is finally here, our panelists all have something to say about Apple's newest smartphone. To wrap things up, Scott and Geoff detail their findings in their latest reviews. Scott has been overclocking Intel's new unlocked Core i5-655K and i7-875K processors, while Geoff has put a hybrid hard drive from Seagate to the test.

Send in listener mail, and we'll answer on the podcast. - jdrake@techreport.com
