The delayed show last week left us with a light list of topics, but we still had plenty to say. Like, as much as we've waited for tru2way, we really aren't interested in using it anytime soon, because ultimately it is the same cruddy software anyways. But no matter how you tune in to HD, it probably takes you longer to change channels then the good ol' days of analog, but not that it really matters anyways with DVRs eliminating the need to channel surf. Finally we talk up our favorite new topic, discs vs downloads, as we assess the adoption of Blu-ray using Netflix's numbers and give Vudu props' for really stepping up and releasing tons of new HD titles. Oh, and while Apple TV is still just a hobby, we don't let it stop us from enjoying some Hulu on our big screen TV.
