Here's the deets:
You asked for an all-questions show, and we're giving it to ya (plus a little Macworld news.) Apple's new MacBook Pro and iMac systems feature Intel's Core Duo processor. The Intel chips should bring a much-needed performance boost to the Mac platform--Apple fans rejoyce! Also announced at Macworld: the iPod Radio Remote. Listen to FM radio on your iPod, just like the name says. Viewer Question: Dan asks "I use iTunes to download Podcasts, but I want a Bittorrent downloader to save bandwith for the guys who make the podcasts. Got any 'podcatcher' reccos?" Answer: We'd like to see some podcatchers that use P2P, but for now try Juice or iPodder if you're looking for a capable downloader. Viewer Question: Joel asks "I've got a Athlon 64 3500+ (Clawhammer) with a Zalman heatsink and it runs hot (48C at idle, 65C load). How do I get the temps down?" Answer: Those temps are normal for a Clawhammer core, but make sure your thermal compound is evenly spread on the heatsink. Otherwise, think about getting a newer 90mm core Athlon--they run a lot cooler. Viewer Question: Kyle asks "What do you guys think of Toshiba's prototype 42" SED (Surface-conduction Electron-emitter Display)? Is this the display of the future?" Answer: SED displays have a couple of big advantages: they're ultra-thin (less than 1cm), and have super high contrast ratios (up to 100,000:1), for great black levels. They'll sell if the price is at all reasonable... Viewer Question: Rick asks "I've got a 42" HD Sony that I connect to my cable box with an S-Video cable. Will I see an improvement in image quality if I replace it with an HDMI connector? Is it worth the $40?" Answer: Yes, Rick, yes you will. That old S-Vid connector can't support HDTV signals, which means the precious 'HD-ness' of your TV is going to waste! Get a HDMI, DVI or component connector immediately, and sin no more! Plenty more of your viewer questions!
