I know I'm a bit biased since I'm part of the larger TWiT family, but it's pretty awesome to see The Screen Savers coming back.  

Haven't talked to many people about this, partially because it's boring and partially because it's not very different than thousands of others, but the original Screen Savers and the other great content on TechTV was one of the earliest gateways for me to tech content and paved the way for podcasts and the like. 

Psyched to see it coming back! I'll be watching!

I'm crazy excited!!! LOVED the show back then and have followed Leo and the rest ever since. The new opening has me quite giddy.

Go with the pixel. Between my pixel and nexus 6, I no longer use a tablet. For work a laptop beats a tablet every time.

Looks like there are still ads in the paid $3.00 version.  Is this true?  And, only RSS feeds?  Not sources similar to the early news readers?

Something inherently sad about setting up my third, and my last, Nexus 5.

This phone is easily the best phone I've owned and used in over 15 years of cell phones. I'm going to my best to make this one last....
