  • Lighining Round:
    • Dell is going private
    • …and so is Blackberry
    • Speaking of Blackberry, it lost almost 1 billion last quarter…
    • …And Grand Theft Auto V made over 1 billion in its first three days
    • Need further proof that Android tablets are flooded with cheap pieces of crap? Tesco – a UK supermarket – is making one called the Hudl.
    • Gabe Newell, in his quest for supreme insanity, anounced SteamOS, yet another linux fork built for ‘living room’ devices.
    • iOS 7 is now in the wild
    • Microsoft doubles down on Surface.
  • Paul and Mike discuss some of their thoughts for the current Iron Brewer round (Yes, I’m saying it that way to try and make it a regular thing – Mike)
