Robert can't wait to get his Ceton InfiniTV 4 CableCARD Tuner: four simultaneous streams of HD Cable goodness into his windows media center PC at once! Windows 7 has more users than Vista Apple sells One Million iPads... and the reviews on the iPad 3G say a) meh and b) AT&T's $15 Data Plan is Awful. The new release of Ubuntu, Lucid Lynx looks awesome, though!

Hulu is great. The online video service gives you the freedom to watch Top Rated broadcast shows and old favorites on your PC or Mac wherever and whenever you want. But when it comes to watching on your big screen HDTV... Hulu's web interface just doesn't cut it. Thankfully Hulu was listening and came up with the Hulu Desktop!
Florian was thinking about updating his two year old Intel Q6600 powered desktop, but decided against it since that Quad core CPU is still pretty fast. His GeForce 8600 GPU won't play the latest games, tho. What 3D graphics card do we recommend for under $300? Patrick's thinking a $200 ATI's Radeon HD 4890 would be a good match for that CPU. Robert says it's not enough and that a $300 ATI Radeon 5850 would be the way to go. Wondering why? Watch the video!

"I know the iPad WiFi has no GPS. If you buy a Bluetooth GPS device could you get it to work with the iPad?" Nope, @JosephDawson, none of the iPhone OS devices will recognize Bluetooth GPS recievers. And the iPad won't work with the excellent Magellan Premium Car Kit nor the TomTom Car Kit. But you can get GPS onto the iPad WiFI... watch the video to found out Patrick did it -without jailbreaking his iPad!
