Podcast not up to date. No #208 Could somebody add the latest Podcast to the list. Really enjoy listening to this, and frustratingly not available.

Agreed. Can't get it on my Galaxy Nexus yet.

About the Sandia Cooler, remember the Blue ORB. This is basically the same design with a few tweaks. With the blue ORB you have the same fluid dynamics except in that case the fan pushes the air through a similar fin design instead of the cooler becoming the fan. You might get some increased surface area with this new design since in the Blue ORB the fan eats up some of the space. The Blue ORB was very quiet. This is no different than a pump impeller (nothing revolutionary here). The big difference here is that the air bearing is expected to have an equivalent heat transfer when compared to solid copper. Good luck with that. Next point; let's see this thing get enough distance beyond the memory and other motherboard heat sinks. The blue ORB had this problem as well. Besides this thing needing to be completely level and the power needed to get it spinning.

You are clueless, and obviously wrong on so many details.

There is still no 208 through RSS. Is there a direct download link?

July 4, 2012 | 10:58 AM - Posted by Ryan Shrout

The podcast 208 file appears in the RSS to me...??

July 6, 2012 | 01:30 AM - Posted by IronMikeAce

No #209 podcast?? I look forward to these things every week. Please tell me theres going to be a podcast this week or did I miss something?

Nope, no podcast this week!

July 6, 2012 | 07:43 PM - Posted by Humanitarian

Aww, balls. I was wondering why it wasn't on Youtube.

No one puts on a better PC tech show than you guys. It seems like everyone else are stupid and just act like idiots on their shows. You guys are great and I definitely think you should do a few a week. Though there may not be enough news I think you guys should get more in depth with your articles. Do some digging and find info that can't be found anywhere else. Either way, you guys are great. Keep up the great work.
