    That you playing the guitar in those clips Anand?

    Don't suppose there's any hope you feel like starting a section on consumer to semi pro level audio recording hardware / software eg M-audio Audiophile or Terratecs DMX fire type cards not that Creative rubbish. Be nice to have anandtech quality reviews on that type of product and who knows might even cause them to release less buggy drivers if they are under more scrutiny.

    *sorry for being totally off topic :), in other news its nice to see you continue with the camera reviews*
