Paul picked a pretty good week to take a well-deserved vacation -- not a lot's gone down since the podcast crew last cozied up to their microphones. There were some big announcements, though: Comcast loaded up its On Demand Online offerings with a ton of partner announcements and Palm released the Mojo SDK (and the Pre was blocked from iTunes). On top of that, we saw some more shots of that mysterious slim PS3, Microsoft announced plans to open up retail stores, and Google Chrome remained a hot topic of conversation -- for Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates. Josh and Nilay are here to run it all down, settle in and hit play -- it's podcast time.
Hosts: Joshua Topolsky, Nilay Patel
Producer: Trent Wolbe
Song: Superpowerless - Creep
