We’re all stretching our brain muscles as we kick off yet another TR Podcast episode. Wolfram|Alpha, our first point of discussion, is both confusing and brilliant, but we’re not holding our breath to see it become the next big web thing. Moving on to yet another ad-war, we discuss Apple’s response to the Microsoft laptop hunter spots. Does Apple stick with tired rhetoric or truly take the lead?
Soon after our ad discussion and a short iPhone rumor roundup, Scott and Geoff tackle our latest SSD roundup and the controversy surrounding it. The sinking U.S. dollar means Intel is getting fined just a little bit more each day in Europe, and Scott gives us a cool AMD CPU sneak preview.
