If you aren't tuning into TWiT Live on Thursdays at 6pm ET to watch me and Leo Laporte talk about PC hardware, you are missing out. I have uploaded our latest episode to my Viddler account for easy viewing here on the site.
Note: as you get into the episode there is a slight video/audio sync issue that pops up. Just a heads up!
Last year (or so...) I had been publishing a series of interviews. Questions are all the same, for Moderators, Members, etc. Well, I got too darn busy and fell off...but the interviews are back by popular demand. We'll start with some I had backlogged. Then we will move on to the newest ones.

In Q1 of 2007 Auzentech announced the upcoming availability of the eagerly anticipated X-Meridian. This was a top end sound card with tremendous features, unique engineering, and sound quality that was promised to be the best in the world. A few months later Auzentech released the card to a host of excellent reviews. While the card was not exactly perfect (the analog outputs were a wee bit hot and caused distortion if levels were not adjusted) it was a step up from nearly everything else in the market, including the mighty X-Fi. While other manufacturers like B-Gears, T

I had a couple of people remind me that it had been just about year since my last "blog" post. Well, rather than let it lapse completely, I'll make this post.
You can STILL hear from me though by keeping up to date on our bi-monthly podcast or by following me on Twitter. Both will give you a mix of personal and professional (website) information so you can keep up with what is going on behind the scenes.

For those of you that are desperately worried (and I am sure there are just TONS of you), the podcast for this week was delayed thanks to AMD. Really, they made me leave my warm cozy home to head for Canada (eh?) for a day and it just happens to have wrecked our podcast schedule. Not to mention Valentine's Day - and I really wanted to spend it with Jeremy and Josh.
I have the extreme pleasure in posting an interview with a member who
is a first class guy as well as a retired (no, no...not retarded ) Mod,
and one of the founding fellows here: Tigsman.
I can only say this, Ron was instrumental in helping me feel welcome
here and to try my hand at doing more than lurking around. This place
truly wouldn't have been nor could have continued to be what it is
without him. OK, OK, enough outta me, let him tell his story.

Just a quick note about something that just rubs me the wrong way, I'll setup a scenario. You are a Vista user, you are listening to some MP3s in Windows Media Player. You are having a great time. Time to leave, so just close WMP and off you go...but wait, why is the music still playing?
Well, I've been off my feed for a few months and I have a backlog of
interviews to get out. It hasn't helped that my new year started with a
schedule change (after 25 years of the same schedule!) has got me doing
72 hours a week till tomorrow. Enough excuses, here we go!

Well, I've been off my feed for a few months and I have a backlog of
interviews to get out. I hope you will forgive me my slacking off. We
will be getting right back in the saddle with a real gem!
I have the extreme pleasure in posting an interview with a member

Just a heads up to everyone that our news will be done different through the rest of the holidays as Jeremy is MIA. Missing in the Arctic.
For your news coverage, I will be doing some and our new Josh promised to help out as well (and is now called out in public).
Send any news tips or coverage ideas to us here!!!

Mario Rivas, Executive VP of the Computing Products Group
sat down for a very enlightening interview hosted by CRN. The reporter asked tough questions, and Mario
gave some surprisingly honest and straightforward answers. As we all know, AMD has had a rough time of
it, and the editorials about the perception of their external marketing and
product placement have been rearing their heads as of late.

I know we have lots of tech news abound today, and we will still be bringing it to you throughout the day. But, I do ask that every takes a bit of time out of their busy schedule to do some reading and remembering of the events that occurred 6-years ago today. Be proud of where you live, be proud of our society even if you don't agree with it all the time.

SCO's lawsuit against Novell has hit a huge speed bump. A major part of their case was based on the claim that SCO owned UNIX and UnixWare, a claim that those who have been working with UNIX since it's inception have been saying is fallacious, from the very beginning of this legal battle. The judge has agreed with them, UNIX and all associated copyrights belong to Novell. SCO nows owes quite a bit of money to Novell as a result of the ruling and will hopefully mean that SCO will shut up about Linux ...
I have the extreme pleasure in posting an interview with a member who has consistently been a bright helpful addition..undersea..or as you will come to know him, Brian. US has long been active in Chaintech and later Gigabyte where I got to know and appreciate him. I'm sure you have bumped into him elsewhere as well. Nuf ratchet jawin, here's the real deal:

There is a lot of choice when it comes to web browsers nowadays, and not simply a decision between IE and Firefox. If you are looking for something different, you can get Opera on the PC now, or at least a beta version of it. If you do try it, drop by the General Forum and let people know what you thought. As well, our inflatable moderator noticed that the free version AdAware 2007 has appeared, so thank him, and let us know how it works.
