Today’s podcast covers the show known as the Intel Developer Forum, or IDF for short. IDF is an annual event focusing on new Intel technologies and product visions, showcasing what is new from small maker-like ‘Internet of Things’ devices all the way up to server platforms and everything in-between. Ian and Ryan were at the show, with plenty of meetings on tap. We found some time to put our thoughts on the announcements in a microphone.

    Hooray! After 6 long months! I almost deleted the feed from my podcatcher :)

    Welcome back!

    I know, right? This is pretty awesome.

    Anandtech should do at least a monthly podcast of basically reading out the most notable article of the month and then discussing it with some folks.

    Wow. Back after a lonnng hiatus eh?

    Does this site even realise that they are in danger of becoming 'just another tech site', I mean the actual quality of the articles are still quite decent, but the choice of content and delays (especially on GPU reviews) seem pretty dire at the moment.

    I haven't seen any articles by Anandtech on the fact that Intel is opening up it's fabs to other people which could lead to Arm chips being fabbed there.

    Am I misunderstanding the event? Almost every other tech site reported on this as a major event but i did not see any commentary from Anandtech.
    Did I miss something?

    You didn't miss anything if you follow a better site, that's the main point.

    I appreciate the outline showing the times at which various topics are discussed.

    Relevant read for those into Xeon Phi, and some explanation of its relation to Larrabee by one of the engineers. Also stated, the Gen graphics guys really want to make a dGPU but Intel management won't let them! Let the engineers free, Intel!

    I think a lot of us miss hearing from you. With the silo-ing and walling of the internet, I really appreciate that you offer multiple rss feeds. Unfortunately @Google, doesn't allow users to add a feed. I miss hearing your podcasts since basically buying into #GooglePlayMusic. I think I and many other long term readers would appreciate you publishing to Google Play as well as iTunes.

    Humm, I didn't realize Google didn't allow custom RSS Podcast themes. I'll look into that for future podcasts. Thanks for the heads up.
