Show notes
We have lots to cover in this episode of the TR Podcast. Geoff is back from Computex with a slew of stories, sneak peeks, and new products for us to geek out about. The highlights of our Computex unpacking include Noctua's "better" 120-mm fan, the rising trend of white computer cases, and new notebooks and platforms from Intel that combine speed, portability, and affordability in very exciting ways.

Moving on from Computex, we welcome guest podcaster and TR reviewer David Morgan, who details his review of the NZXT H2 mid-tower enclosure. We also analyze the new Wii U gaming console and bemoan a disappointing Duke Nukem demo. Finally, it's the newest from Microsoft and Apple when we dive into Windows 8 and Apple's iOS 5 and iCloud.

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