Hey, question. What do you guys think about the auto-play functionality when you hit this page. Cool or annoying?

+2
+ -

I like to hit the play button personally

0
+ -

A little of both. Cool that it plays the podcast by itself, but annoying because i keep hearing an allstate ad

The auto-play function is ok, But the auto-page reloading script is a pain when watching the podcast , cause at around 3/4 way thru the vid , it kicks in, so I always had to reload or hit the link directly to Viddler and watch it there. But I Got Used to it.

Now, changing the subject ,I would like to Request to see more video reviews please. I mean coincidentally I noticed in the intro, a part from Marco's review of the Alienware M17x notebook that I saw in Youtube and therefore because of that vid, I became a HotHardware fan ever since, and of course one of my Favorites, Dave's review of the Alienware Area 51 desktop Power House, that thing is a monster.

It Would be nice to see those types of reviews "Weekly", not Only from Dave and Marco ,but Also from the Other editors too. We like seeing Un-Boxings of motherboards, cases , hard drives, ssd's , which ever Hot hardware ,to see what were gonna get (or a least fantasize about ) We like hearing the sound of the fan of a video card when it rev's up,when tested in full high quality settings in benchmarks, seeing the test set-ups and a lot of other stuff...and in HD please.

I'd really like to see a video build log of Marco doing his magic on the prize system from the last contest.

I wonder if anyone will second this suggestion?

How about it guys?

I Second That!!

I would love to do a video blog of the build (which I'm planning to start tomorrow), I'm just not set up properly and have a lot of craziness going on during the day with a newboard and 16-month old in the house. I'll see what I can do though...

LOL yes, that newboard will be easily overclocked if your not careful, But hey you got to overclock it sooner or later... Marco was newboard suppose to be a joke? xD

Cake 'Newboard',..............LOL! Cake

We should cut him some slack, he's probably on sensory overload right now.

(that auto-start feature has to go)

Not sensory overload---sleep deprivation. :) That fact that I typo's "born" and "board" proves my uber-geekness if you ask me!

So has the build started yet? :)

Yeah, working in it "as we speak".

How many typos can I have in a single thread? Anyone want to start a pool?

OK, contest system is built and ready to rumble! Going to install an OS to make sure everything's kosher and then box her up.

I took some pics (will post a couple in a bit) and shot video along the way. Will try to get it edited and posted soon.

OS is installed and looking good. Just some drivers and tweaks and I'll feel good about boxing her up!

I'm jealous, I love to build new systems. Can't afford to do it often either.
