Commercial was short: +1, extra Avis advert... understandable. LOVE the show notes with the timestamps for the features. That's nice.

More good stuff. Keep it going....

Even though you know I'm not a fan of the 2mins of Apple bashing - lol. You know I will also argue back on the "My product cost less than yours": Microsoft doesn't make PCs - and Apple OS updates are cheaper. But, you guys still made good informative points all around.

Keep expanding the length and going into more detail. I'm thinking 12-15 minutes would be perfect.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Thanks bro. We'd love to go a little longer too, but then we wouldn't be able to get them posted to YouTube. I guess we don't HAVE to post on YouTube though...

Maybe I'm remembering wrong... but if you get enough "fans", aren't you allowed to post longer videos?

Ahhh, MSI has a motherboard for the Lucid Hydra already? NICE! Haha, I find it easier to retain more info from a video rather than reading it. Welcome to the TV generation. Well at least we're better off than the Iphone/sms generation.

Nice review again guys! Dave, really digging your smooth, laid back style. Liked the info on the turbo mode.

Are the videos shot in one 10 min stretch?

Hehe... yeah, who would think failure to comprehend that the text "...and to play us out, here is Sting..." could elicit such confusion and rage in an adult: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tJjNVVwRCY

Yeah Marco gets pissed at the webcam all the time.  You should see it.  I think he's smashed like 8 Logitech cams over the past month.  Poor little things.... pummled.  Logitech loves it though!  They just keep making them!  I'm just gonna setup UPS for the guy on auto-delivery from Logitech.
