watersb - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - link(FWIW Anand says it's DNS: some hours for the update to percolate throughout the net, should be working now...)
Vi0cT - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - linkGood episode, just waiting for the Lumia 920 review now...
roberta - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - linkUnfortunately direct links for both mp3 & m4a are still broken... :(
PHlipMoD3 - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - linkLoving these podcasts.
Only problem I have is that Brian often talks about the review he is working on (EG Lumia 920) and the review never surfaces on the site.
nathanddrews - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - linkAre we certain that we always need 10-25% spare area or is there a hard GB limit - a point of diminishing returns?
Do you need 10-25% free for ALL capacities? I don't want to lose 512GB when we get to 2TB SSDs. If the point is to ensure that you have the necessary space to allow garbage collection to properly do its job, wouldn't that mean that it mostly depends upon how much data is written between collection processes?
Obviously we know that 20% free shows improvements for nearly all drives, but what if we don't need that much for larger drives? If 20% of a 256GB drive (50GB) works well, would 50GB of free space work just as well on a 512GB or 1TB drive? The consistency of the 960GB M500 doesn't appear to improve all that much when you move from the stock 9% (64GB) spare area to an arbitrary 25%.
Also, I'm curious if spare area is spread out across all NAND dies or if spare area takes up NAND dies in some sort of sequential fashion and how that impacts the performance gains of spare area among different drives/controllers.

slatanek - Thursday, May 2, 2013 - linkI couldn't agree more with smartphone camera UX limited control rant. Why-o-why can't there be a manual focus slider?
Jamesjunky - Friday, May 3, 2013 - linkBrian is going to get the Shoelace, but it's going to be the Sprint version.
stuhad - Saturday, May 4, 2013 - linkWhat was the AMD thing Anand went to, that he briefly mentioned? Did I miss the news on it, can we get it in the next the podcast?
bleh0 - Saturday, May 4, 2013 - linkIt was interesting to hear about the Asus Fonepad in the podcast. After reading some other reviews the battery life seems great and the performance is decent. Are there any plans for a review of some kind?
