Sponsored by MSI's Master Overclocking Arena 2009. North American overclockers can join Phase One of the tournament between June 29 and July 19. The top two overclockers will get to compete with international heavyweights at the finals in Beijing on August 29. Visit the official website or follow TR's sponsored coverage for more.
As the month of June comes to a close, we turn off the noisy air conditioning and swelter in our studios to record another episode of the TR Podcastat least, that's what I did. This episode starts with a variety of gaming topics: everything from the campy and somewhat uninteresting Battlefield Heroes to the acquisition of id Software, the reasoning behind which we discuss at length.
We then talk phones, as the iPhone 3G S has made its way into two of our panelists' hands, and Scott has wandered back into his old Sprint store to check out the Palm Pre. Cyril and Scott go on to introduce the Pocket Swiss Army Knife from the latest TR system guide, and we share our (mixed) feelings about Windows 7 pricing. Later, Scott examines MSI's new consumer ultraportable laptop, we round up the latest netbook news, and we wrap up with high-end Socket AM3 chipsets. What a show!
