    Define: clatter

    A continuous rattling sound as of hard objects falling or striking each other

    Surface for gaming?  An old man like me needs to have a larger screen so I can see.

    Things for Paul to wear?  He really should have worn a vintage looking gaming shirt for Atari.

    Sorry Laura, but Paul is right! It's pronounced A-suse.

     

    Also, I just don't find a tablet being fit for gaming, and the tablet running the Unreal Engine shows an inconsistent framerate, so I wouldn't consider it "fast and fluid."

    I'm glad I'm quite possibly your favorite person, you are mine as well. maybe except for Richard Simmons, because I mean... who desn't like Richard Simmons??? bwahaha. BTW I love how you both try to figure out my name... Good luck!

    Here's an official video of how to pronounce ASUS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjjoGtXV6pY.

    Then ATIV, rhymes with "Aleve".I'm pretty sure.

    Another great show, much love!

    P.S. I must figure out how to make my comments shorter, it's a sickness really. maybe by not adding a P.S. to them... ohhh the irony.

    I have always liked Ping back in 2010 and it has been my number one podcast to improve my English before the nokia pronunciation debate started. And now, both of you have this kind of discussion, it makes me love this show more.

    If you guys never mention about how to pronounce Segoe, maybe I would keep say Se-Go-E and "A"sus where "A" like "Glass".

    Channel9 is really a gem. I'm glad that I know this website.

    I'm with Paul on this one, I love using the nipple on the laptop, I hate the track pad.

    Although I'm with Laura on the pronunciation of ASUS, A-SUS.

     

    That Samsung looks pretty good, but I'm going to pick up a grey Lumia 920 Smiley

    oooooOOOOOOOOO!!!! dtower got owned by Paul!

    And i really want a WP8 right now! im a android user and i'm falling in love with WP8.
    The only reason why i have doubts about buying a WP8 is cuz i got very used to the openness of android (rooted). I really hope WP becomes a little more open. But....when i think "forget about buying a new phone" the majority of my brain slaps the minority of my brain with fierce amount of neurons.


    WP8 !!!

    While I am not picking a horse in this race. random videos on youtube shouldn't count - unless you are willing to change how you pronounce 'Nebuchadnezzar' to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YrfL-XJNBE just because I pasted that link.

    You could send them a message to Ch9 team on "Contact Us" section and they will send it to you. That's how I did last time and I got 2 nine guys Smiley. I still have the plastic wrapper of the nine guys.

    @masukuma:Is not a random video. It's a video from the official ASUS channel.

    But that was hilarious... I love this dude's videos.... but I don't think I've ever pronounced  'Nebuchadnezzar'. Tongue Out
