Jordan is gone. Again. No idea where he went... and frankly, don't ask.

Othwerwise, our fearless panelists fare just fine, not only answering a variety of live questions from our livestream but also covering a wide slew of tech news and reviews including the woe of Zalman, the coming of Oculus, and bane of Pentium... plus other things that don't sound like Greek tragedies.

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