Since the last episode, the graphics industry has seen major GPU introductions from both Nvidia and AMD. This time around, we consider the pros and cons of the GeForce GTX 260 and 280 and the Radeon HD 4850 and 4870. In the tech news section, the editors cover the iPhone release, financial troubles for Nvidia, and the latest iteration of the Eee PC from Asus. Also, as a bonus, Jordan makes a big podcast announcement.
