Excitement over draft, but not so much from columnist
The moth-to-flame phenomenon may be even more amazing this season because, unlike 2012, when big-talent quarterbacks were on the menu, this year's draft is a buffet of beefcake familiar mostly to scouts, agents, parents and Todd McShay. … Note that …

Quite a bit hangs on the horizon in the world of gadgets. E3 is right around the corner, as is WWDC (Apple’s Developer conference), and while hardware gets cooler and cooler, the spec does not.
John, Matt and I discuss this and more in this week’s TC/Gadgets webcast.
As far as WWDC expectations go, the debate currently centers around docks and displays. Matt seems to think that a 4-inch display on a Droid X-sized iPhone is in the works, while I’m hoping against hope that a larger display can fit onto the same size iPhone. John, as usual, doesn’t really care. He’s more interested in the docks — rumors are circulating that suggest a microUSB port on the new iPhone rather than Apple’s standard 30-pin connector.
This would, of course, leave hundreds of speaker and charging docks out in the cold, with the exception that Apple releases John’s suggested $ 39.99 iDong.
We also discussed what we expect out of E3, which amounts to little more than nothing. No new Xbox, no new PlayStation. Basically, we’re getting our hands on the Wii U, which is exciting, but there’s only so much that can be upgraded in current hardware.
Which leads right into our next point: how important are specs?
Matt wrote a post recently harshing on the Nexus tablet for a lack of wireless connectivity, but more importantly, detailing the insignificance of performance testing and specs. To his first point, John and I both own WiFi-only iPads and are perfectly content, whereas Matt needs data to survive.
As far as specs are concerned, we seem to agree on the idea that specs are important in a few select areas, like camera and display. But without a solid understanding of what they mean, and how they can be unrepresentative, they’re just as worthless as a processor clock speed. For example, Nokia’s 808 Pureview 41-megapixel camera doesn’t take 41-megapixel pictures. It rather captures around 40 megapixels of raw data which is then compressed into an incredibly sharp 8-meagpixel image.
In the same vein, display resolution is only a worth looking at alongside display size. The idea is to have a high resolution on a smaller screen. The bigger the display, the less pixel dense the resolution is.
We spent a good deal of this webcast arguing, so feel free to join the fight in the comments.

Sometimes, those Modern Warfare sessions really take their toll. Now, there is a way to measure the emotional rollercoaster you’re subjecting yourself to when you login for those regular gaming stints. Dale Lane decided to hook up the webcam above his main TV to grab a shot of his face every 15 seconds. This then wings its way to the Face.com API, which calculates all sorts of information about the image and sends it back to Dale, who uses a Python script to cook it into these graphs. This one measures his early evening session playing Blur on Xbox Live. Yeah, red means angry.

Many amazing things dropped at SDCC this year, and we’re still sifting through the piles of awesome to see what we missed as we watched the flurry of tweets. And one thing that has totally floored us a couple days later is this trailer for the upcoming “DC Universe Online” MMO. We heard the reports about cool voice casting being involved, but if this trailer is any indication of the tone and action that the game will carry, then count us in. Watch this, and then we dare you to disagree (which of course some of you will likely do, but that won’t dampen our excitement!).
