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:

    For these video shows, you should play to the strengths of the format and use them to discuss hardware in a hands-on way for half an hour. A feature-length recording of two talking heads is a little daunting. I'm already downloading an audio recording via TubeMate and that's probably how I'll listen to most of this show-- as a podcast during my work commute.

    That sounds like a lot of work for them. While it'd be great if they had shorter, video-relevant segments alongside the longer audio-only podcasts, I'm okay with listening to these as podcasts--for the moment at least, it seems they're largely treating them as such anyway too.

    In the future can you save the audio as a downloadable podcast? I love to listen to you guys on the go.
  • JensWeissflog - Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - link

    I second that. Although it's not the hardest trick ever to download audio from a youtube video, an audio versio to the podcast feed directly would be welcome.

    They should split the video, in parts, like Erica Griffin does.

    +1 on audio only version in your podcast feed. I can't watch videos in the car.

    You guys might want to talk to Chris Fisher over at He runs a podcasting network. His videos have a ton of great effects.

    Yell at Intel and Microsoft to get us a 5-6 inch phablet that runs Windows 8.1 on a baytrail that also functions as a phone :O.

    Command & Conquer (or any RTS or Turn Based Strategy) would definitely be the killer app for such a device. And real Microsoft Office of course.

    Put 8 gigs of ram in it and I'd get one on launch day.

    Having a phone that can run everything except DOS (which you can emulate) is just the holy grail of mobile computing.

    So no thoughts on the Nokia-stuff whatsoever?

    Oh yeah, I would have liked to hear a bit. It doesn't sound like Anandtech was sampled (or even interested in getting them) but I would still like to hear their reaction to the announcements.

    A question I have (that I might have to post for a future podcast) is why tablets with cellular connectivity have the phone aspect stripped out. The Nexus 7 would be a very cheap phone that I would probably buy and use as a phone. It also would be great for my grandmother who wants a phone for basic texting and photo viewing, as well as some random phone calls. Giving the standard excuse that you will look stupid using it to make calls is not a reason at all (headsets, texting, and who gives a shit what I look like). Why do oems remove the capability? Is it an FCC verification thing? Or a carrier problem?

    The Asus Fonepad is kinda the only one around, which Brian found a little silly but usable. Why aren't there more?
