No BS Podcast #29—The "What Day Is It?" Edition

Tom, Will, Gordon and Jeremy bring you a special Tuesday edition of the No BS podcast. We talk about the latest tech news and respond to loads of reader mail! This week, we're taking a look at

  • iD's new game, Rage
  • The cost of spyware
  • California's violent videogame law deemed unconstitutional

All that, plus a report from the Lab, Ask the Doctor, the return of Gordon's rant, and reader mail!

Do you have a tech question? A comment? A topic you'd like us to cover? Call our new No BS Podcast hotline at 877.404.1337 x1337!

Also, thanks to Willie Finnegan and Sighlo for recording the theme music for Gordon's Rant of the Week. You can check out the band here.

Spectre,

We did last week's podcast on Tuesday instead of Friday, because Jeremy was out of town. The next one will be this Friday.

even if your computer was full of viruses you shouldn't trash the whole thing, just trash the harddrive and reinstall windows on a new one.

also how come there are no comments full of lamentations for the unexpected disappearance of my weekly segment. "sob"

I had to completely scrap my PC due to spyware. Sony's rootkit had opened up a system vulnerability and that allowed a trojan in. the trojan downloaded 15 viruses and spyware. it wouldn't work online or offline.

Here's more on Quake Zero. Apparently it will be launched from a browser, but thankfully it's a full fledged app.

P.S. I think the talking motherboard I had awhile back was an ASUS model. See if they still offer that anywhere.
