  1. Hey Matt! 
    My mind is pretty much blown right now. 
    So just a couple of months ago I just recently joined the great music website, Singing Lamb, as a photographer. 
    And I saw that you had bunch of posts on the website as well. 
    But while I was surfing Tested.com I noticed you posted articles on here also! 
     
    I’m pretty much a big fan of the Whiskey Media websites, especially Giant Bomb and this here Tested, and I find it awesome that you’re posting on this website. 
     
    Anyway, I just felt that I had to tell you.

  2. Hah! Small world, eh? Of all the ways for someone to find me on here, through the Singing Lamb definitely wouldn’t be my first guess. I’ve still been doing some photos for Mel every now and then, though definitely not regularly. How’s shooting been for you?
     
    Glad to see you like the site, however! I’m quite glad I’ve gotten involved with the Whiskey crowd, as I’m also a fan of Giant Bomb and Comic Vine myself. Hopefully I’ll see you around soon at some shows, or one of Mel’s infrequent meetups. 🙂

  3. Haha true. And it’s been going great. I don’t really have a lot yet (kinda busy with college) but by the time NXNE is over…I’ll probs have tons haha. 
     
    Yeah I’ve been following the Giantbomb crew for quite some time now, even back in the Gamespot days. But that’s soo cool that you get to write for Tested.  
     
    Haha, yeah hopefully! 

  4. I’m glad Will clearly expressed his thoughts on the 800. I had a small chat with him on twitter and was confused/incorrectly assuming what he meant. I too wouldn’t be surprised if they update the 800 (front facing camera and stuff) before bringing it to the US.

  5. I’ve totally been doing that. About two or three months ago Will started getting really ridiculous with the descriptions, and so reading it as a Top Gear opening completely fits now.

  6. Anybody else getting really wonky skipping around the 1.5 hour mark, or is it just a bad download on my end?

  7. Great show, guys. I was craving a little after finishing the Oktoberkast episodes. 😛

    During Nokia discussion, you guys said there aren’t any WP7 phones with front-facing cameras–dudes, the HTC Titan is the ginormousest slab you’ll see and it’s got a front-facing camera. http://www.htc.com/www/smartphones/htc-titan/ Mango added support for the front camera.

  8. im surprised about the comments on the recommendations on Netflix, mine were always pretty good until I gave my son the code to have Netflix on his X-Box.

  9. Yeah… in fact, all four of the US WP7.5 launch phones (Titan, Radar, Focus S, Focus Flash) all have front facing cameras. Sadly, if I were to bang my head against a wall every time they get something Microsoft related wrong, I’d be dead by now.

  10. I’m glad to hear Will’s constrain on his coffee love, makes them more appreciated when those segments do show up. 
    and I’m one of those people that send him hate messages for all those coffee video >.>   

  11. One of the better episodes for a while.

    Seemed like a good cross section of topics with positive talk on all 3 major Phone OS’s. Could listen to Whitta & Loyd talk history for the entire podcast also.

    More Loyd Please!

    I think that is changing though. I know a lot more BB users going Android or IOS when their contracts are up than getting a new BB.
