This week Jon Phillips, Mark Hachman, and Gordon Mah Ung discuss “paranoid” conspiracy theories that Microsoft could be planning to wall off PC gaming. Mark also relays his experience doing a speed date with Skype’s real-time translator, and the crew ponders if Opera’s new ad-blocking feature will make a difference. 

Finally, is the new Peeple app (it’s basically Yelp for people) just harmless fun, or a bad, bad idea? All we know is that Yelp already allows you to review people. Just click on this link to review Gordon.
