It is once again a sad week for HD fans. It's bad enough that progress in the DTV transition was delayed by 4 months, but now our worst fears have come true and Pioneer is officially getting out of the TV business. To help us cry over the occasion, Nilay Patel from the Engadget Podcast has joined us and he just might be a bigger plasma fanboy then us -- and that is saying something. We eventually do move on though and try to decide what a Blu-ray early adopter is. Then we talk a little Simpsons HD, and finally finish up with some Windows Media Center talk.
