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.

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