Show notes
Footsore and skull-numbed, our panelists join us in this extra-long episode of the podcast to unload their collective brains of all they saw at CES 2011. The gang runs through everything from the mood and attendance at this year’s show, to the latest and greatest in the cult of clicky keyboards, to whatever coolness Razer has to show this time around. As a bonus, Jordan reviews a slew of earbuds for smartphones.

Send in listener mail, and we’ll answer on the podcast. – [email protected]

Listener mail/tweets:

To quality podcasting (0:01:11) – from Luke:

“I thoroughly enjoy your podcasts. They are informative, comprehensive,
and interesting. The effort and care you put into them really shows.

I sometimes listen to a computer hardware podcast from one of your
competitors, and their show appears to differ from yours in two ways:
First, they don’t pick out their topics until after they click record.
And second, they consistently sound drunk.

So here’s to quality podcasting, Luke

P.S. With all the talk about smoking and barbecuing over the last few
months, don’t you dare call this too off-topic to read on the show. =]”

32gb of RAM?(0:03:04) – from JMC:

“Ram is cheap enough now that I want to go for 32 gigs of ram. X79 sabertooth motherboard/3930.

I thinking that I have a better chance of compatibility with 4 sticks of 8gig compared to 8 sticks of 4gig.
Seems to always be iffy when you fill all ram slots.

Have you heard of very many ram compatibility problems with X79 boards or am I probably quite safe buying a name brand like G-skill or Corsair?quot;
