  1. Bethesda made the PS3 version of Skyrim thinking about the Vita and gaming on the go because after a time you can’t play that for more than 30 minutes.

  2. ya whats up with the hate towards Matt. Gettin on his ass before he even opens his mouth. And at the beginning his told to man the chat and then gets bitched at for having his laptop.

    …just sayin dood.

  3. Yeah Koreans don’t really like e books. It’s more of a cultural thing and preference. It’s not like they dislike e books. Koreans don’t believe in reading books from a screen, which is kinda funny because they have one of the best internet connection in the world and how much they stare at monitors everyday. As a matter of fact, the concept of e books got bigger recently because of tablets.

  4. Good podcast, great guests. I’m really enjoying this CES coverage, keep up the good work guys!

    Also, if you like casino games: look for a table game called three card poker (or Ultimate Texas Hold ’em), it’s really fun and easy to play if you know poker.

  5. Matt, I would love to hear a bit more about the Lumus glasses you demoed. I’m a 2nd year student in a doctoral program studying Optometry, and am interested to hear about the technology. I checked out their website but the details were scarce concerning the actual product specs. I thought I heard you say that they projected the image using mirrors (or prisms?) and that would make sense for forming a virtual image in between you and optical infinity. In any case, if you have the chance, I would certainly like to hear a detailed account of it, thanks!

  6. I’m not really catching the hostility from Will. I think he got spammed with texts not topical to the tool. I did, however, hear Matt call Will and Norm homosexuals. Which is offensive because Will’s not even gay.
