This episode of the TR Podcast is sponsored by MSI. MSI's new AG270 3K all-in-one gaming PC is crazy cool. The AG270 features an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M graphics card with 6GB of RAM, Intel Core i7 processing power, a gorgeous 3K 27-inch IPS display, and much more for $2000. Be sure to check it out.

Show notes
It's our first episode without the venerable Cyril Kowaliski... and we're so, so, lost doing just fine! Join us for a surprising Apple Watch and MacBook conversation, a look at the Shield set-top box, "console-killer" Steam machines, and a lot more. Bonus points if you can hang in long enough to hear Jordan sing (it's not pretty).

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