  1. Wow, surprised that the guys didn’t know Red Bull sponsors F1. They basically have two teams and have dominated for the last three years.

  2. I just watched the MS Surface ad on Youtube and I would say they do a pretty good job of differentiating it and making it look appealing without drilling down into the specs, or going the Samsung route of ripping on people who like Apple.

  3. Totally disagree with Norm’s interpretation of time travel. It kinda ruins the fun of the would-you-rather

  4. *Disclaimer – I love the podcast and still love hearing their opinions…most of the time….specifically when they’re labelled as opinions….*

    You know for as much as people complain about this being a very apple heavy podcast, its good to see and norm still pretty neutral at 1:35:02.

  5. Speculating the iPad mini will start at $250 is extremely optimistic in my eyes. The ipod touch now starts at $299 so I’d be shocked if the mini is less than $350.

    Agreed. I just checked the price of a 5th gen ipod touch(64 gig) is $399. I will be very surprised if there is a 32 gig iminipad for under $350. I would love if there was a sub $250 one as I am looking to get tablet computing product.

  6. current rumor is ipad mini to start at $330 (wi-fi, 16gb). that makes the nexus 7 that much more attractive. we’ll find out tomorrow.
