"Epic" is played out today. From epic Dorito flavors to my epic video of the time I slipped on a banana peel and split my pants. In other words, not epic in any way understood, except perhaps some sexual innuendo–laden defi nition written by a drunk college kid on Urbandictionary.com.
Plus, Android laptops, reader questions, and more!
This week, on episode 225 of the No BS podcast, the Maximum PC gang gathered to flap their lips to wonder if it’s time to ask if Steam Machines are losing steam and spill detail’s on Intel’s Pentium “K” and Devil’s Canyon parts. The crew also talks abou the possibility of cheap 4K monitors and ponders if any of them would actually want to run a 4K monitor at home over a standard 1080P panel. There’s also a lively discussion about why HP would put Android on a its new laptop and if Chromebooks are “worthless.” That plus staff picks, questions from readers, and a full helping of bile and sarcasm from one of Gordon’s signature rants.

These days you can't flip on the Internet without being bombarded by tablet and smartphone announcements.

One thing Intel unveiled today is an 8-core Haswell-E CPU.
