    Thanks for the Podcast. Any update on when you will have that podcast with Ian about Z87 boards?

    This could be the best podcast ever...
    Shamesung and so many other interesting topics.

    2 hours? Any reason you guys aren't doing a video podcast, like a Hangout or something, or just film yourselves. It's a little more entertaining to sit and watch 2 hour of podcast than just listen to it.

    Uh, no.

    2+ hours of podcasts are great for my commute, it's plenty for both the way there and back.

    I was recently flying to Singapore and I had specficially loaded up on episode 22 and 23 the days before and saved them for the flight. It was a lifesaver. If you don't have enough concentration to listen and absorb over 2 hours then either spread it out or go somewhere where 40 min podcasts - barely enough to cover any real ground - is the norm.

    Anandtech is about in-depth coverage of tech. One part of that is simply a function of time. Compare Brian's HTC One review with the equivalents of most other sites. Since he goes into so much more detail, it also takes a lot longer to read those kinds of reviews.

    But that's why we're at Anandtech, it's a quality technology site.
    Or at least that's why I am here. Why are you here?

    ^ I agree these are awesome for commutes as is.

    I also agree I prefer audio only as it allows me to do other things while enjoying this great content rather than being stuck to my computer the whole time.

    I agree as well. Audio only is preferable.

    Not mutually exclusive, dude.

    Was that the same Andrei who's also doing the Perseus Kernel for the i9500? Because he's been calling Samsung out since June.

    (Changelog for his Aplha 1 release):
