This past month has been insane thanks to many of our travel schedules. With things finally settling down I was able to get together with Brian and Vivek to record a mobile-update podcast going over all of the announcements we've been covering on the site lately. This is a long one, we go over all of the new Microsoft releases (Surface, Windows 8/RT, Windows Phone 8), the new Google releases (Chromebook, Nexus 4/10) and the new Apple releases (iPad mini, iPad 4, 13-inch rMBP), and more.

    Brian likes to go on an on, half of it I don't really get but the other half is completely amazing or funny so I think this format is perfect.

    Ya. The informal tone and structure is what makes it enjoyable to listen to.

    I thought you guys may have canceled the podcast. Good to see it's still here.

    Nobody thought the offgas thing was cool?

    I can hear about new phones and laptops anywhere, but there's only one source for goofy engineering quips. Klug is the man.

    When they were talking about that, I was thinking of various consumer electronics farting. In a round about way, that isn't too far off.

    Quirky and interesting but part of me was like, "Okay... we're not gonna miss all the content for this are we?" .

    Hi Team-AnandTech, can you guys please post your review of Lumia 920? I am eagerly awaiting your views on the phone. The phone sounds so fascinating but is it really worth its salt?
