It's the Monday before CES, and with news breaking already we figured it was the perfect time for a pre-CES podcast to clean the slate before getting crazy far behind again. So we'll be returning to the recording booth for the first time in what feels like forever to record the Engadget HD podcast live via uStream at 6:30 pm. And as you listen, just remember, this is just the beginning of a crazy week of HD. Embedded Ustream tools and a list of topics after the break.

Update: Now with Engadget Podcast Bingo!
