Last Friday, Brian Klug, Ian Cutress and myself took an hour to discuss a lot of what was on our minds lately. At a high level we discussed building a new Ivy Bridge PC, Brian's picks for best Android smartphones on the market today and even talked a bit about the next iPhone. Go a bit deeper and we had discussions about SSDs, the changing PC landscape, Haswell and much more. 

This marks our first ever official AnandTech podcast. The plan is to regularly do more of these and my hope is to be able to rope in all of the AnandTech writers to spend some time on the mic. We're getting an RSS feed for the podcast setup but for now here are direct links to the first episode (mp3 and m4a formats) as well as an embedded player here if you want to get started immediately. The total play time is just over 1 hour (01:01:05) and that will likely be our target going forward. As always, comments are welcome and appreciated. Let us know what you liked, hated and want to hear more of.

    You guys gotta get an intro song for your podcast! Also just wanted to say don't be afraid to have fun, nothing wrong with an off topic rant here or there!

    I will be looking forward to the next one!

    I should note that at one point I said Verizon standardized on RSSI instead of RSRP, then correct myself to RSCP. This is incorrect.

    I shouldn't have corrected myself, Verizon has standardized on RSSI for LTE, not RSRP on LTE, which is analogous to RSCP on UMTS.

    *tears up*

    They even correct themselves? It's better than I could've ever imagined.

    Also the echo/reverb on my side should be fixed next time, among other weird audio issues on my side, which are embarrassing. Anand and I were both using Blue Yeti USB microphones.

    The m4a link is broken for me, I downloaded the mp3 but would prefer the m4a.
