  1.  every week’s episode kicks ass. It’s a great way to start every friday morning by listening your podcast at work. And yeah, it’s friday morning at Finland atm =) “

    Oh you international users, with your crazy hours and rockstar haircuts. Here in America we like our cars fast and our banks closed. 

  2.   I work nights so on my walk to the office, whlie drunks are idling in front of bars and homeless people rise up to rule their night empire, I get to listen to the sulty tones of Will in my ear buds. Fridays Mornings eq ‘Tested Podcast’

  3.   How far has Gary Whitta fallen.. I remember when he was the proud leader of PC Gamer. Now Apple fanboy? Why Gary? Whyyyyy? 
     
    My hero is dead.

  4. Will, if you are going to be testing out separate mics, can you check out the AKG Perception 120 USB?  It’s a bit more than most of the other mics you are going to be looking at, but it’s an AKG condenser mic with a USB connection.  Pair it with a pair of AKG K-270s (or if you can get one, a K-702), and you have a pretty professional rig for about the price of the more expensive headsets you reviewed. 
     
    Can’t wait to see the build next week.  Will and Gary and Lloyd – oh my!

  5. Ah, Gary.
     
    You can go console, you can go Mac… but the complete gamer always comes back to Momma PC.

  6. You know you can make multiple gmail or other email account go through the same account. All you have to do is go to settings in your gmail and select accounts and imports. I have all three of my email accounts coming into the same inbox. You can also send from any of them, so I don’t see the big deal with the multiple accounts in a tab.

  7. I would be interested to see an article on podcasting/internet radio. Using Skype to record or other methods. I’m sure you fellas would have some interesting tips.
