Show notes

Introducing the disastrously overdue audio version of episode 176 of the Tech Report Podcast. This week, we talked about Project Cars and hard-core racing sims versus arcadey racers. Then we dug into Asus’ new ZenFone 2, Time Warner’s Maxx service, and Asus’ Transformer T300 Chi convertible.

We stream each of our podcast recording sessions live on Twitch. If you want a combination of our dulcet tones and stunning visages, you’d do well to catch the next show live or check out the YouTube edition of this episode below.

Send in listener mail, and we’ll answer on the podcast: jdrake@techreport.com

    The mention of that Maxx product reminded me of the Rage Fury MAXX. Hard to believe I worked for ATI 15 years ago.

    Regarding pCars. Dudes, if you’re steering your car with a bleeping X-Box controller, you’re playing an arcade game, not racing in a sim. :/

    Please try a decent wheel and split-axis pedals. FF is nice, if configured to provide subtle feedback, but is not necessary.

    Downloading! Does this mean the stream with David Kanter won’t be a standalone podcast episode?

      Yeah, I was hoping it would show up in that form; I keep meaning to strip the audio out of that and put it into my podcast app so I could listen to it while driving but never got around to it. (I really need to do that, because I’m never going to watch the video).
