No BS Podcast #44: The Holiday Party Hangover Edition

Maximum PC Staff

Finally emerging from a tryptophan-induced haze, Tom, Dave, Gordon, and Jeremy get back to work to talk tech. This week the guys discuss:

  • Phenom
  • Facebook's Beacon Ad System

Also this week, Ask the Doctor covers new ground by delving deep into topics some editors would rather not discuss, and Gordon brings a holiday-size helping of his bilious worldview in his Rant of the Week.
