  • Final day at NAB. This is my chance to get around and catch the interviews I missed before. Especially for those audio podcasters out there. I’m intrigued how radio broadcasting is further from audio podcasting. Sure, you can get a radio mixer for a podcast but it would be a little overkill. Still, there are some who like sliders over dials – and are […]

Some pretty impressive stuff with customized surround sound, too. Turtle Beach introduced a new line of mobile headphones. Gaming on the Go, is what Ike said. Sleeker, trendier and portable. The M3, for example can fold up […]
