I love my mighty mouse.  I spend about six hours editing video each day and the hoizontal scroll makes navigating a timeline much easier.  I haven't had a chance to use the Magic mouse yet, but if I could scale the timeline with a gesture that would be even better.  Many people don't realize the mighty mouse actually has a right and left click, as well as a center click and side mouse button.  I game with a Logitech MX510 and I thought I would replace the mighty mouse with one, but it was so effective in Final Cut I got hooked.

Cell phones are relevant for most computer users.  I likee hearing about different cell phones and other NON COMPUTER related stuff.  The projectors and other cool gadgets they maay run across.  I like almost all kinds of electronics.  If I can go to the mall or Best Buy then bring it home and plug it in and make it light up I generally like it.  It's even better when  it will connect somehow to another device I may have.  I almost messed my pants the first time I connected my cell phone to my PC via bluetooth.  I am tired of hearing apple this and apple that every podcast tho.  Apple sucks ballz.  Anyone with any intelligence already knows this and don't need me to tell em.  I like when Gordon rants on Apple tho.  But enuff about the ipad and iphone.  I want to hear about teh Ipad killer device I should be expecting...and what it will be capable of regarding playing my movies and music and surfing the web.  That I would buy one of those for.  Not gaming tho.Thats why I have my Asus G72GX.  Speaking of which, I promised my opinion on it after I sued it for a bit...I'm on it now.  I have a hard time typing on it cuz of the spaces between the keys being just slightly too large.  Every game I give it gets made into it's bitch.  Yes it plays Crysis.  Quite well.  The bullet time thing from Fallout 3 works great too.  My 7900gs SLI system had a hard time with fallout 3 bullet time...Anyone wants more info on it let me know.

There's no mention of the mandatory 30 minutes of cell phone babble. It's in EVERY episode, so I wonder why it's not mentioned in the description? Maybe it's just taken for granted that the first half hour will be mindless cell phone talk that nobody cares about - and the description assumes we know this will be the case - and therefore does not mention it.

Really, you should rename the podcast "Maximum Cell Phone". Or "Fast Forward through the First 30 Minues Podcast".

Oh good lord, Ginger, if you really need to get away from the cell phone talk, I'm sure there's some fanfic of My Little Ponies where Kirk and Spock are turned into magical ponies and only Wind-Dancer the magical unicorn can help them before the Klingons--who were also turned into ponies--steal the heart-shaped rainbow of love.

Now I know you relish every minute of shaving your legs to the Podcast so that you'll be ready to lift those sweet cheeks this weekend and get a nice slap *Ba-POW* going while dancing to the latest Lady Gaga, but tell me this: Since when is cell phone tech not considered tech?  Hell, my own phone is about 10 times as powerful as my ancient first IBM 'back in the day'.  Is all of it relevant to my interests?  No.... but it's in the news, it's affecting a host of other technologies across multiple vendors, and it involves some of the biggest tech names out there.

Then again, some people just like to find out what color the LED's in their keyboards can turn so they can match it to that dashing little outfit of yours with the sequins.  I really don't care that purple matches those flecks in your eyes that leave you weak in the knees, but tell me--did you really think that whining like some 16-year old girl stood up at the Prom was going to make anyone think of you as any less of a... well, Ginger, I'll just come right out and say it.  A girl?

Its the Maximum PC Podcast. Not the girly podcast. They shouldn't be wasting so much time talking about girly tech like cell phones all the time - that's all I'm saying. I think we can all agree that cell phone tech is the grandma tech of the world. Only moms care about such things. Now that I've re-phrased, I think we can all agree.

Folk who are really into cell phone stuff are certainly not into computers, hardware, or anything that educated folks care about. That's all I'm saying. Not controversial.

Modern smart phones are a type of computer.  They are also hardware.  Saying that educated people don't care about modern technology like the latest smartphones is ignorant at best.  Ironic, don't you think!
