Great interview guys! Dave, really enjoyed the explanation of the processor core battle! Your comfort level in front of the camera (webcam rather) has increased substantially from a couple of months ago.

The High school webcam story, I think that's the first time I've seen a diversion from covering strictly tech topics, it was a good addition. Will we be seeing more of those in future TechVi podcasts?

Hmmm...I just realized that HotHardware is a good tongue twister...

Thanks Gibbs. It took us a bit to get the flow down more than anything. Since webcams don't do "full-duplex" conversations as well as being together in a room, you have to make breaks in the conversation to allow others to interject. We're getting the hang of it now for sure.

Yes, we'll be covering basically any full review content or news content that we think folks will care about in these webcasts. So pretty much anything goes! :)

GREAT to hear Dave, i'll be waiting to watch future videos (its every week right?)

@gibbersome i just found out today watching this video that those marks are from the comments xD

The ATI cards are looking good, but at this point I would just wait for the next gen nVidia cards - if only to snag an ATI when the prices drop.

I like the markers showing where each topic is discussed.  Nice addition.

I've watched all the others as they were released, just guess I never went back to replay a section and notice the markers.

Those markers have been there in the other podcasts too, and if you scroll over the round thingies, a link will pop up to the HotHardware article that pertains to it. Nicely integrated.

With the Nvidia card release so close, I'd have to agree about waiting on ATI cards if you're in the market for one. Also, going with past experiences, I'm expecting that the Nvidia cards will be priced out of most people's budget when they're released. Though the "wait for the next gen" argument can be used with any computer tech.
