Yes, both Veroronica and Patrick have dropped their iPhone 4s... fortunately, Patrick had a Bumper on his, which also prevents reception problems from touching the iPhone! Apple's already sold 1.7 million. BTW, the bike Patrick was taking a picture of was a gorgeous Rivendell Antlantis.
Owen's upgrading his router... should he go with 802.11g or 802.11n? We've got our top router picks on the show, and we strongly suggest folks check out SmallNetBuilder.com's reviews before they buy new networking gear!
Yes, Jack, that new iPhone supports N, but it doesn't support N on the 5GHz band... so we've got tips to maximize 2.4GHz N performance for ya! You can find even more if you read 5 Ways To Fix Slow 802.11n Speed

Need a quick break from work? If you're running OS X on a Mac then give Quinn a try. This Tetris-ish game features all the fun and skill of the classic original, but adds an online multiplayer mode, so you can test your skills against those of your friends, co-workers or co-horts. It also supports custom gameboard backgrounds, tiles sets and one slick looking interface. One word of warning... It's ADDICTIVE!
Loyd Case is back! He's been reviewing Puget Systems' Serenity, a sub-20dB gaming machine. That's seriously quiet! More the DIY type? Loyd's got the word on how to use components like Gelid's Tranquillo CPU cooler, Antec's P183 case and CP 850 PSU in concert with Acoustipak foam to build your own super quiet PC!
Before Loyd left, he helped Scott find a cheaper way to build a multiple monitor system than using the $500 Eyefinity 6! He doesn't need all six monitors from one card, so Loyd's got some much less expensive options in the video... and you won't need all new DisplayPort monitors readymonitors to use 'em!!

Summer means Garage sales! Or tag sales, or yard sales or rummage sales. Who cares what you call 'em, because you'll find them all at GarageSalesTracker.com! Search for local sales, post a local sale, you can even search by items if you're looking for something in particular. The only downside Veronica's seen is that there aren't a whole lot of choices for sales on the site yet, but that could change with your help, so check it out today!
Adam sent us a rather weird looking video asking, "what would be a better monitor choice for student heading towards college... two small screens or one large big one?" We talk price, advantages of big vs. littles, and why we usually lean towards dual monitors and buying from the Dell Outlet.
