Show notes
We've really gone back to the drawing board on the latest episode of the TR Podcast... and I gotta tell you, what we've come back with is special. It's a straight shooting, tight-lipped eulogy of tech reporting without a trace of any of that horrible burping, personality, or tomfoolery. You'll love it.

Oh, and on this episode, you'll hear a ton about the next version of Windows, bugs in Intel's Haswell chips (reported first here on the Tech Report), AMD getting Mantle in the next version of OpenGL, and much, much more.

P.S. do you want us to stream live video of the show for our net recording session? Let us know in the comments!

P.P.S. Yes, we know there are issues with Scott's audio—unfixable microphone malfunction.

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

Listener mail:

Pretty please? - from TD:

"Next time, in addition to burping, please try to manage at least one fart."

H.265 - from Dysthymia:

"A quick google on the h.265 spec shows that it was finalized sometime last year. Do you think we'll finally see hardware accelerated encoding and decoding of h.265 video with the Nvidia 800 series and AMD 300 series?"
