As we march towards our review of the iPhone 5 (and some other really cool stuff you'll be seeing later this month), episode 8 of our weekly podcast got pushed back a bit - but here it is. Ian shares some of his latest test data on reducing POST times for newer motherboards in anticipation of Windows 8. We recap some of the Haswell Architecture piece that went live last week. Vivek joins us to talk about the 2nd gen Razer Blade as well as his perspective on anodizing thin aluminum surfaces. Brian talks about the T-Mobile acquisition and new phones from HTC.
