This week's episode kicks off with the last bit of news we could squeeze out of Nvision 08. Scott, prompted by a listener question, discusses 3D display technology he saw at Nvidia's event and its headache-inducing properties. Our editors then talk about the new sub-$100 Radeons, Microsoft's bizarre (but possibly brilliant) ad campaign, gaming news, and more. To finish things up, Scott and Geoff chat about Intel's latest SSD offering, the laws that govern the growth of the industry, and what the future might look like.

3D Glasses? (0:02:17) - from Fighterpilot:
"I'd like to suggest that TR look into the 3D Glasses being advertised around the Net from time to time. I'm sure many people would like to know whether: 1.They do indeed work. 2.What difference/advantage do they give you in FPS gaming? 3. Is the technology really mature enough to bother with? 4. Are they usable on a standard monitor or will we have to wait for 120Mhz monitors (so I've heard)? 5.How do they effect your vision after wearing a pair for a while?"
