Another week and even more 3D news as the Masters brought 3D to many of our homes (if we could watch it) for the first time. That's not all, since FIFA revealed details on its plans for the 2010 World Cup and we took a closer look at the difference between quality and rushed 2D-to-3D conversion jobs, and how they might affect movies and the way they are marketed going forward. We also discussed the state of the plasma vs. LCD battle and where the parties stand in 2010 before moving on to the current rental window squabbles. Expect a quick detour off topic to discuss what we're actually watching in HD lately before we get to a few dream features for the next version of Windows Media Center, what's wrong with the TiVo Premiere and why you should be excited about the new Dish DVRs.
