If you'll recall, we lost 20 minutes of the last No BS Podcast to the Macbook Pro in the podcast recording studio. For this week's episode, it ate a mere 10 minutes of the rant. So thank you, Macbook, for screwing us somewhat less than you did last time. But don't fret--even without those 10 minutes, you're getting a solid hour of news and discussion about ultrabooks, Battlefield 3, the most high-tech thermostat ever, and more.

This is truly geeky thing to get excited about, but Trane’s new ComfortLink II thermostat looks like an awesome way to control your home’s HVAC system.
The device features a seven-inch color touchscreen display that can not only control your heating and air-conditioning system, but it can also monitor the temperature in multiple rooms and connect to the Internet to display the temperature outside.
