This week, we check out some iPad competitors coming from Google and Dell (among others), and take the room's collective temperature on the upcoming iPhone 4 OS.

Secondly, if you're looking to bring those video game skills into "real life," there's an upcoming round of Street Wars coming to NYC. London, SF, and other cities are also on the list, and the game itself is a grownup version of the college dorm classic "Assassination."

Finally, we look at a couple of recent CNET articles that have readers all riled up, and willing to leave online comments such as, "Dan your an idiot. [sic]" and "What in a world is wrong with you Mr. Ackerman?"

Everyone loved last week's giveaway of a prop gun from the Sega game Bayonetta, and this week we're giving away a copy of the excellent strategy game Tropico 3. We've got it for both Xbox 360 and PC, so let us know which one when you enter (and, naturally, listen to the show to find out how to enter).
