While Scott is off on a secret mission, we welcome Will Smith of Tested.com onto our podcast panel. (Before starting Tested.com, Will was the Editor in Chief at Maximum PC.) We kick off the episode by talking about Will’s new site and his latest piece of content: an in-depth review of the Apple iPad. Our guest covers the pros and cons of the device before answering questions from Jordan, Geoff, and Cyril. More Apple stories follow as we discuss new Gigabyte motherboards that charge running iPads, plus the biggest product leak in the history of Apple.
Next up: our panel is both apprehensive and excited about Crytek’s upcoming Crysis 2, and we all have something to say about the platform-free gaming future Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima predicts. Later, Geoff, Will, and Cyril discuss their experiences with the 5.1 surround-sound gaming headset from Psyko, we delve briefly into AMD’s financials, and Cyril goes over his latest laptop review. Geoff then concludes our podcast by giving us the skinny about his recently published SSD roundup.
