  1. Norm, Windows Phone 7.5 doesn’t have dual core processors. Mango phones got a bump to 1.4GHz from 1.0GHz, but they’re still single core.

    Also, I know Loyd is a smart guy and everything… but I still think it’s bull shit that his wife’s phone hasn’t been updated. I have literally never heard of that at this point. Unless it’s a specific SKU problem, the LG Quantum most definitely has Mango.

  2. Love the show, but the echo and audio quality makes this REALLY hard to enjoy.

    Norm makes an excellent host; better than Will, IMO.

    Also, that being said:

    “Right?” – Loyd

  3. I wasn’t expecting a podcast at all this week so this was a nice surprise. It was great hearing Loyd back on the podcast as well.

  4. About that mini itx pc you were investigating.

    One of my local enthusiast hardware sites just built one like that.

    I think it might be exactly that asus board you were talking about, paired with a i7 3770 and a GTX 690 all inside a silverstone sugo case.

    Here is the article translated to english if you are interested in reading it.

    Also, overclocking with a 3470 is proably a nono since it doesnt have an unlocked multiplier.
