We're back with another podcast. This time we start out with a discussion of Borderlands 2 and philosophies on sidequests in games. We briefly talk about TI defocusing its smartphone/tablet SoC business, Brian also gives us a look at the role of the PMIC in a modern ultra mobile platform. AMD's desktop Trinity GPU launch is discussed as well as some of the behind the scenes politics we deal with on a regular basis here.

We mention Samsung's new SSD 840/840 Pro and what the 840 means for driving SSD prices down in the future, and conclude the discussion with more about the iPhone 5 from Brian.

    Has the iTunes Podcast Version been fixed too? Yet to see any updates in iTunes. If not please make another re-upload to iTunes. Reply

    Is it possible for Anandtech to change the file in iTunes. Or upload another corrected version of the podcast to iTunes? Would be helpful.. Reply
