Even though it's been a week that's all about cellphones, there's still plenty of HD news to decipher, from last week's comments to our review of the Logitech Harmony Link. If you know us, you know Harmony = rant, but you'll probably want to tune in just to see where Logitech's latest effort to connect all our devices simply succeeds, and where it failed, failed and failed again. Apple, Intel, Boxee, Google, Roku, Slingbox and Crestron are all other names coming at the connected living room from a different angle and unsurprisingly, they're all here. Give a listen to find out what they're up to, plus our picks of what to watch on your HDTV this week.
