    I agree. Brian Klug is sort of antisocial and arrogant. In addition to what you mentioned, he constantly talks over everyone else in the podcast, often mentioning his credentials or skills or important friends for no reason at all. I notice it too, but it usually doesn't bother me.

    On the other hand I think the "technology arrogance" is perfect for a site like Anandtech, it's extremely useful to have the point of view of someone who actually cares deeply about technology.

    What really bothers me though, is when that condescending attitude is combined with ignorance. A couple podcasts back, regarding removable batteries for smartphones, it was "Uhhh! You got what you got! No removable batteries ever again! MicroSD is the worst storage medium and all MicroSD cards are constantly corrupt! Nobody uses it anyway! It costs too much to put it in!"

    Really? You're the mobile reviewer on an enthusiast site, and you think people are stupid for not wanting to settle for less battery life and less storage space on a $600+ device? Lol. Removing features that directly affect the usability of the phone in order to save like 7 cents in manufacturing costs makes no sense whatsoever. Meanwhile you won't stop talking about other stuff like the One 4MP camera which nobody except you would ever notice or care about..

    "Sell me an Xbox license." Brilliant! For years I've been playing computer games while my Playstation sits lonely in the basement dedicated for HT use. I talk to one group of friends who share the computer interest\hardware and ignore the other group who are gaming on Xbox together. I'm tired of buying computer hardware and 2 different consoles to share the experience with all my friends. One set of hardware, virtualized console OS's and independent DLC\community environments FTW... Reply
