Sadly, things are starting off on a somber note, as Editor-in-Chief Katherine Stevenson has announced she is leaving the magazine to pursue other interests here at Future US. She will be sorely missed, and we wish her the best of luck at her new gig.

Gordon had his ear to the ground for CPU news at CES too, and discusses what Intel told him at the show. We also all have a chat about AMD"s new <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/amd_launches_kaveri_apu_radeon_r7_graphics2014">Kaveri APU</a>.

We begin with the recent sale of <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/bankrupt_ocz_sells_assets_toshiba_35_million2013">OCZ's SSD business to Toshiba</a>, and what it means for current and future customers. We discuss the latest report from IDC which predicts PC sales will have <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/idc_shoots_it_straight_says_consumers_lack_reasons_upgrade_older_pcs2013">declined by over 10 percent</a> in 2013 because PC users have no reasons to upgrade. Finally, we consider the possibility of AMD abandoning the fight with Intel. We wrap up with our Editors' Picks and Gordon delivers a fiery sermon on a range of topics that includes Star Wars and e-mail.</p> <h5 style="margin: 0px 0px 5px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 17px; vertical-align: baseline; letter-spacing: -0.05em; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-weight: normal; color: #990000;"><a style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent; color: #cc0000; text-decoration: none;" title="maximum pc no bs 214" href="http://dl.maximumpc.com/maxpc_215_20131204.mp3" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.maximumpc.com/sites/future.p2technology.com/files/imce-images/rss-audiomp3.png" width="80" height="15" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;" /></a>&nbsp;<a style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent; color: #cc0000; text-decoration: none;" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/maximumpc/1337"><img src="http://www.maximumpc.com/sites/future.p2technology.com/files/imce-images/chicklet_rss-2_0.png" alt="chicklet_rss-2.0.png" title="chicklet_rss-2.0.png" width="80" height="15" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;" /></a>&nbsp;<a style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent; color: #cc0000; text-decoration: none;" href="http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=213247824"><img src="http://www.maximumpc.com/sites/future.p2technology.com/files/imce-images/chicklet_itunes.gif" alt="chicklet_itunes.gif" title="chicklet_itunes.gif" width="80" height="15" style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;" /></a></h5> <h4 style="margin: 0px 0px 5px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 19px; vertical-align: baseline; letter-spacing: -0.05em; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-weight: normal; color: #990000;">Editor's Picks</h4> <p><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13.63636302947998px;">Clark Crisp: <a href="http://www.roccat.org/Products/Gaming-Mice/ROCCAT-Kone-XTD/">Roccat Kone XTD mouse</a></span><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13.63636302947998px;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 14px; vertical-align: baseline; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent; white-space: pre;">Tom McNamara</span><span style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; background-color: transparent;">: <a href="http://store.steampowered.com/app/233130/">Shadow Warrior Remake</a><br /></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 14px; vertical-align: baseline; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Katherine Stevenson: <a href="http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/use-snipping-tool-capture-screen-shots">Windows 8's Snipping Tool</a></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 14px; vertical-align: baseline; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Josh Norem: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Prank-Pack-PP401007-Pet-Petter/dp/B009LNZIZY">Prank Christmas Boxes/ The Pet Petter</a></p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13.63636302947998px; white-space: pre;">Gordon Ung: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Select-Toys-Star-Trek/dp/B001DXFEJK">Diamond Select Communicator and Phaser</a></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 10px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; outline: 0px; font-size: 14px; vertical-align: baseline; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Can't get enough Maximum PC?

Next, we break down Battlefield 4's launch issues and compare them to Battlefield 3's. Finally, we ruminate over the arrival of Windows 8.1 and the state of Microsoft before wrapping things up with our editor picks. Gordon then delivers an epic rant on the ever-present anti-PC bias in the media.</p> <p><em>Editor's Note - This podcast was recorded on November 8th in both audio and video formats. Since then we have been working on editing and uploading the video portion, but have experienced issues with the feed, post production, and Youtube. Rather than delay things any further we are releasing the audio instead of waiting for the video to be finished.
