This week, Gordon, Andy, and Will talk about leaked internal Microsoft emails, AMD's new 4-GPU Crossfire X systems, hacking EAX5, Dave "The Console Defender" Murphy. Then, we take a brief detour into the lab before answering a ton of reader questions!
This week, Dave, Will, Gordon, and Jeremy listen to Will's horrid attempts at wookie noises,
send off their favorite podcast producer with a sad series of goodbyes
and tears, and talk about the ramifications of Microsoft's potential
Yahoo acquisition. All this, and a report from the Lab, answers for a
ton of reader mail questions, a shout-out to our fourth and fifth
female listeners (hi!), and Gordon's extra-saucy rant of the week!
