Our longest episode ever brings the thunder with a mix of great discussion and one of our most interesting interviews to date. Before our foray into the tech world begins, though, Jordan notes that this episode marks the TR Podcast’s one-year anniversary.
Geoff then goes over his experience with Nvidia’s Ion platform, after which we debate Time Warner’s bandwidth quotas and Bigfoot Networks’ future prospects. Our editors also discuss the list of Windows 7 editions, Scott gives us an interesting perspective on the recent purchase of Shacknews, and Cyril shares his feelings on the PC version of Mirror’s Edge. Finally, Scott talks about Nvidia’s stereoscopic 3D scheme and concludes that zombies look cool in 3D, and so does Zoey from Left 4 Dead.
In the second half of our episode, we interview Intel engineer Matthew Hiltner. Scott and Geoff ask him a mix of editor and user-submitted questions, and Matthew gives us insight on silicon testing, BIOS emulation, what happens when someone in the workplace fries an expensive testing motherboard, and more. Don’t miss this interview!
