Dave's face looked a little red for that burn! LOL

The Wi-Drive has just made my list of future purchases!! Nice!

That thermaltake snow edition is so much sexier than the black, I so want one. But maybe, just maybe they'll come out with pink?? lmao, doubt it!

Totally agree about the LVL 10 GT - the white shows off the design so much better. Porsche Red would be cool too.

Nah, I'm good. We won't talk about all the typos that go on with all that "skill" in action though. ;-)

The favorite peripheral segment was just a blast. !  Yes

The blank keyboard maybe just thing for some folks  but for others [ like me ] it's a matter of What2Type&When  >> W2T&W 

yep that blue orb mic does make you sound like you are right in the same room..

Thanks for answering a rather 'creative ' question and letting it rip ! you guys Rock'd -IT ! Smile

Man, I'm so excited for the new contest, and I really wish you had more than two reader questions to answer.

Still, I wish there was more incentive to watch this podcast; I mean I browse this site daily and I see the daily news articles and aside from the conversation between Dave, Marco and Iyaz; I feel like I'm not missing much by watching this podcast...

Still, you're fans are loving the podcast so I have to give you guys that.

@Taylor - Not sure what you mean. What kind of incentive do you need? We're all ears if you've got some input.

Wahoo! thanks for another great broadcast :) and thanks for answering my question.

That blue orb mic is very pretty indeed I might even say it is hot...

Marco I am with you on the blank keyboard though mine is only blank because I have worn all of the letters off of it lol.

Iyaz I totally feel you on the scroll wheel it was a great addition to the mouse.

Certainly excited to see another hothardware member walk away with an awesome rig.

Got home from a 2 day trip wanting to watch this but :( lol. Video is down or something. I press play and a blank screen loads to nothing. When clicked it leads to ads.

Ahh dang-it... Looks like Viddler is having issues with their ad manager. Will drop the Youtube embed in now, so you can watch the episode, Inspector. :)

Marco and his keyboards :D lol

Dave, that mic looks huge, lol is it just because u moved it close to the camera or is it just that big lol.

Iyaz, whats paper? :P

Inspector, it's about the size of a large orange, or "snowball" actually. It's a solid semi-pro mic for sure. Really nice. I love it.

Dave_HH:

,, It's a solid semi-pro mic for sure. Really nice. I love it.

Kinda wondering Dave.. what episode did you start using the 'snowball' mic '?

cause when you rotated it the higher end quality was easily noticed. ..yep I like it too Smile

It was a few episodes in, RR. We were using wireless lapel mics that were hit or miss, prior to the snowball. Both Marco and I use them.

@Dave_HH Just kinda wondering because for a few episodes we sometimes got an idea of some GPU horsepower with certain graphic cards .Which also provided some lively 'feedback' and thanks for mentioning that Marco uses the snowball mic as well.

0

ahhh, yeah... The wireless mics didn't like those big graphics cards! :)

0
+ -

but ya gotta admit for a while it made the webacst s a bit more interesting "Hold up that new Monster card and if Marco's  mic howls a bit ..it's a beast "

maybe the wireless mic didn't like it ! but I did Smile

Great show. Keep lengthening it. Iyaz, keep asking the tuff questions. Marco, please keep the gadget stuff fair and balanced and not apple-centric.
