Yeah; I am kind of agreeing with you there dadodgeson, Lyaz pulls his own weight does he not. As usual love the webcast. I think you guys covered a lot in the new (on the hardware spectrum) I was real interested in this week. You guys are really becoming pro on this, I'd also like to hear if you guys get any response on the removal or separate option of crapwearless machines. I doubt it, but ya never know, right. I as you don't find to be much of an issue, but I promise you the average consumer thinks that junk is just normal, not to mention they probably think general computer performance is at least a generation behind what it actually is.

As usual great webcast guys!

Lol, when Marco said "I have two babies in the house" I thought he meant Dave and Iyaz!

I like the Dell Streak 7 a lot, the screen is a quick fix and hopefully Dell is listening to the podcast and makes the necessary adjustments to the next generation. They have a real iPad killer here, especially with the dual cameras that Apple didn't think to include in their tablet.

I wish Ray had been on the webcast to talk a little about the open letter, it would have been great to see him express his passion on video. Marco did a great job of summarizing the key points. I submitted the article to consumerist and CNN Tech hopefully it'll get more attention!

I really liked next gen stuff in the Pre 3, the wireless charging and the cool way to sync with the tablet. Can you imagine all the Apple devices being able to interact with each other like that? Syncing between the ipod touch, the ipad and the macbook would become easy and incredibly cool.

meh... apple will probably rebrand it and call it revolutionary.... the iSync

As for the ipad killer, i dont think that device will ever exist. There are quite a lot of devices right now that would be considered much better than the iphone.... yet the iphone prevails.

And finally, i agree with you on this one, i would have enjoyed if ray had an input

Oh, i wish there was a podcast, i just minimized the browser and worked on my assignment while i was listening to it haha. good webcast, summarized the top articles

This weeks episode was really smooth, well-paced,well-balanced with the amount of info presented. Iyaz is definitely holding his own in the comments esp with the tablet section.[hey Dell wake up!]

What was of particular interest to me was the explanation of the Seagate HD,s with the increased platter speeds and higher 'tweaked' cache performance in comparison to Western Digital green's.

A well polished webcast guys very smooth with the bloat-cap section that could have easily been a webcast in itself another good reason to share this weeks link on my FB wall.

maybe some HH java mugs to go along with the Chillin' theme this season .sure would be great to keep 'da pinkys warm wrapped around a mug. kinda Chill in the house these days. lot's of test pilots here in the community for quality control, review, and ownership..

You guys rocked another one! and proud to be a member here.

It appears that Microsoft has been listening to us about crapware.


Maybe you guys could check it out and let us all know what you think?
