It's our annual E3 episode (and no, we weren't really there.) Actually, we talk about more than just E3; there's some BP oil spill stuff, a Foxconn followup, some Web-browser-war talk, and likely a Steve Jobs impression thrown in for good measure.
I know we're late in our E3 coverage, so there won't be any new, earth-shattering information revealed here, but we're both really excited about the forthcoming crop of game releases.

SAN FRANCISCO--Each summer for the last four years, I've been lucky enough to get to pick a region of the country and spend several weeks driving around, writing stories and taking photos of some of the best geek-oriented destinations I could find.
In 2006, it was the Pacific Northwest. In 2007, the Southwest. In 2008, it was the Southeast. And in 2009, I traveled through almost the entire Rocky Mountain and Continental Divide region. Over the four years, I've covered 18,528 miles and visited dozens of the most interesting research labs, military bases, aviation facilities, NASA centers, … Read more
