Show notes
We've got a substantial episode of the TR Podcast this round. Our panel kicks things off by discussing a LAN party of epic proportions at Damage Labs, the latest Radeon price drops, and a chunky triple-slot graphics card from PowerColor. Then, it's on to the milestone jury decision for the Apple v. Samsung case, which earns commentary from Scott and Cyril.

Next, Ubisoft's CEO says something profoundly silly, and we point and laugh. We look at some new tablets from Samsung and HP, which feature the same detachable keyboard design as Asus' Transformer slates. Jordan and Geoff examine new touchpad tech from Synaptics as well as Samsung's Galaxy S III smartphone. Finally, Scott and Jordan dive into the nitty-gritty of AMD's Steamroller architecture, and Scott wraps up the show by going inside the second with today's CPUs.

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