Our favorite Mac blogger, Jason Fox, joins us to share an incredible story about beards and advertising. We preface the story-telling with a panel review of The Avengers, which turns out to be a universal favorite (though not all of us have seen it yet). After the film review, Jason tells us about @leeclowsbeard, a project he's been laboring on in secret for the better part of three years, one that has recently received significant industry recognition. Then, Scott brings us a detailed report of the highlights from Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference. Finally, Asus' Ivy Bridge-powered N56VM notebook and AMD's Trinity APU represent the latest and greatest in mobile computing, and we give you the lowdown on both of them.
