Yesterday we announced that we'd be doing our first (technically second) live mobile show tonight at 7PM ET. We're now just over 1.5 hours away from going live. I'll update this post with an embed of the stream for those who want to watch it live. For everyone else we'll be pushing it out to our YouTube channel as soon as it's done. I've heard the requests to toss it in the podcast stream as well, which we should be able to do but that'll come a little later. 

Brian and I will be talking about the following on the show later tonight:

The iPad Air
Investigations into Apple's A7 and Cyclone CPU Architecture
ASUS Transformer Book T100 & Retail Bay Trail
A Discussion of 64-bit in Mobile
The Haswell MacBook Pros
HTC's One Max
Brian's Initial Thoughts on Google's Nexus 5

On at least a couple of these topics we'll be disclosing details for the first time before ever appearing in written content on the site. This is a new format for us, but if we can get enough support both from you all and potential sponsors it won't be the last.

Check back here at 7PM ET for the live stream.

Update: We are done, check it out below:

    I'm watching right now over dinner. I'm not an avid G+ user but I have to say the YouTube livestream integration is nice. Not many competing services. It's a little thing like zoe that's cute but functional.

    Also I like this format. Video on livestream YouTube for podcasts at night is perfect for sitting down on a couch and watching it on tv.

    Lost it at nVidia thinks their brand carries a premium. :D

    It sorta does in tablets and up but not in phones.

    Don't know about the Android java runtime much, but on desktop side going from 32 bit jre to 64bit jre increases NetBeans memory footprint a ridiculous amount. Whilst Android devices generally have more ram, won't they need even more if they decide to go 64bit ?

    Most of it is actually going unused right now. Any respectable middle-high range Android phone has 2GB now, and moving to 3, and Android 4.4 trims things back to work well on 512MB devices and most apps don't even saturate that full 2GB so it leaves room for a lot of multitasking and keeping old apps in memory.

    I expect 64 bit phones will take the chance to go to 4GB if only for marketing though. That should alleviate any concerns about 64 bit using more. And yes, 64 bit iPad Air apps did use 25-30% more RAM.

    Yeah it's not at all clear to me why Samsung has started shipping 3GB in its latest Notes and whatnot. I did find last year that moving from 1GB to 2GB devices produced a very positive effect on the lifetime of browser tabs, to the point that where I rarely had them reload them mid-browsing session even after a handful of background tabs (say, a half dozen--I don't do the same sort of heavy multi-browsing on my phones that I do on my laptop or desktop, for obvious reasons).

    I don't know if there will be games or other apps in the near future that are really able to take advantage of a full 2GB (or more), but until mobile OSes have the sort of leeway to swap to disk rather than have to simply kill running apps, more RAM will continue to be extremely welcome.

    Yay, talking head videos! I do like this format better than audio-only.

    When can we expect airline chair, beverage, and internet reviews?

    Brian, in you review of the Nexus 5 can you test if the Nexus 5 has Apt-X compatibility

    forgive my spelling
