Nicely done again gentlemen. I always find it interesting which stories you guys choose to feature. Can you share any insight into the process?

We have a custom plug-in on the front page that lets us know what the top stories of the week are. It gives us a good idea of what we will feature. Occasionally a hot thread may not fit into the program. For example; the story about T-MOBILE'S SONY XPERIA Z3 CAN NOW BE ROOTED!. That thread was on fire but what could we really say beyond "Oh hey the Z3 is rooted....very cool. What say you CK?" "Yeah man very cool...ok moving on"
Do a behind the scenes episode.

Have a camera crew following CK and DG around as they prepare for the script.
Another thing.. Idk if the HTC has a removable battery. But remember the original razr maxx?? How hot the s4 processor got?? I still have those phones, I stuck em in my device drawer.. .. And they all suffer from battery swell, to some degree... From that heat... I wanted to point that out.. So. Hot processor and non removable battery.. =BAD JUJU
Oops.. Meant to put this in the h9 thread...

Great episode guys!!
