Show notes
After a long and lustrous slumber, Jordan is back to host another episode of the TR Podcast. As a result, our corny joke quotient is off the charts. After some listener mail and discussion of our upcoming TR BBQ (mark your calendars for July 19; it's gonna be big), we welcome special guest and top-10 contributor Ryu Connor to the podcast to discuss, among other things, what's wrong with our collective computers.

After Ryu's 15 minutes of Z-level fame, we are joined by Nathan Wasson (a.k.a. Junior Damage). Scott's firstborn guides us through his review of three exciting Corsair mice. Finally, our team vivisects the new Surface Pro 3 from Microsoft before bringing our show to a glorious and masterful close.

Send in listener mail, and we'll answer on the podcast. -

Listener mail:

High Resolution Monitors? - from Peter:

"A while back Geoff had lamented about a lack of replacement for his (and mine own) Acer 1810T. We actually laughed about it together that we both had one at the Vancouver meet up last summer. Anyways, what are the TR team’s thoughts on the recently announced Acer TravelMate B115P (or non-P) ? A worthy upgrade to the 1810T or is the 1366 x 768 screen going to be its downfall?"

Tech discussion:

That's all, folks! We'll see you on the next episode.TR
