Episode 7 returns to our classic podcast format. Listener mail takes us all the way from portable media to geeks looking for a spouse or partner. In tech news, we take a look at the ultraportable market, as well as a cornucopia of the latest Nvidia news, direct from Santa Clara. We wrap things up with discussions of our CPU and GPU value articles and the P45 chipset from Intel.
