While Scott is hard at work deep in the recesses of Damage Labs, Geoff and Cyril join us for a classic panel episode of the TR Podcast. We begin this episode with a quick reminder about our latest, MSI-sponsored giveaway. Then, it’s on to our latest TR system guide, the nuances of which Cyril and Geoff dissect.
The podcast quickly kicks into high gear with some news. Our readers have voiced their opinions about USB 3.0 in our latest poll. Zotac’s latest Zbox is a sexy CULV barebone that includes both USB 3.0 and Blu-ray. After over a decade of rumors and delays, Gearbox will complete and release Duke Nuken Forever, a game Cyril and Geoff are both anticipatingand one Jordan is too young to be excited about.
We move on to an assortment of the latest Apple news, including a stunning iPhone game demo from Epic, a new version of iOS, and a new and curiously button-less iPod nano. The show continues as we discuss Cyril’s review of the AMD Nile laptop platform (as embodied in Toshiba’s Satellite T235D), Geoff’s disappointment with modern notebooks in general, new mobile graphics processors from Nividia, and Google’s instant search.
