Show notes
Jordan is back. Thank God in Heaven.

Oh, we also talk about stuff, like the difference between Geoff's and Cyril's voices, how the TR BBQ went, and whether or not we're looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy (hint: Jordan is). Moving on, the panel discusses the possibility of larger iPhones, changes to the Steam controller, and the exciting new Nvidia Shield Tablet.

Listener mail:

Geoff or Cyril? - from Milo:

"I've been listening to the podcast for over two years, but I still can't tell the difference between Geoff and Cyril. Sometimes Jordan asks you to identify yourselves, and then each of you quickly mumbles "here" and you move on.

Could each of you say your full name, what topics you cover on the Tech Report, what your hobbies are, whether or not you're the fitness nut we keep hearing about, and what it is like working for that slave-driver Scott? I think a name-badge and several sentences of speech immediately following would really clear things up."
