No BS Podcast #191: Surface Launch, Vishera Review, and AMD Takes On ARM and Intel

Jimmy Thang

October was a scary busy month for Tech (Halloween pun totally intended). Manning and "womening" episode 191 of the No BS podcast are Editor Josh Norem, Editor-in-Chief Katherine Stevenson, Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang, and Deputy Editor Gordon Mah Ung. This time around the crew tackles a wide variety of topics that include:

- The AMD Vishera CPU Review

- The Razer Blade gaming laptop

- 4TB drives

- Microsoft's Surface and Windows 8 launch

- AMD vs. Arm vs. Intel

- HD 7970 bundle

In addition to covering a whole smorgasbord of topics, we're debuting a new segment called "Picks of the Week" which allow us to share our favorite games, apps, and gadgets. We share because we care (Ah, aren't we sweet?). Here are our individual picks this time around:

Picks of the Week

Katherine: Qualys BroswerCheck – Scan your web browser for vulnerabilities in the browser or its plug-ins, then easily fix whatever issues it finds.

Gordon: Gas Buddy app – Find cheap gas anywhere you go with this free app for Android, Blackberry and iPhone.

Josh: Convert a 3TB drive to GPT to access its full capacity.

If you have a drive that is larger than 2TB, Windows might not be able to recognize the extra capacity. You can access the full capacity on one partition though if you convert the disk from MBR to GPT. This video shows you how easy it is.

Jimmy: League of Legends – A super popular MOBA game that Jimmy dares to say is better than Valve's Dota 2.
