Facebook IPO, Nvidia GTC, Diablo 3, and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon on PCWorld Podcast #138

Remember a couple weeks ago when we discussed Ivy Bridge CPUs running a lot hotter than Sandy Bridge CPUs when overclocked? Well Loyd Case found a site that did a little experimentation and solved the mystery. (Hint: it's the awful thermal compound Intel uses.)

We're joined by Facebook expert Mark Sullivan to talk about the impact of Facebook's IPO, which should happen today. I think we're all in agreement that the company is way overvaulued, and will start snapping up other companies when the big flood of money comes in. With any luck, they'll avoid Yahoo's object lesson in how not to spend money.

You may have noticed a little PC game by the name of Diablo 3 hitting the market this week. It's an online-only game, and has suffered the fate of every very popular online-only game. Namely, it was all but unplayable on the first day.
