Engadget Podcast 281 - 02.17.2012

Call us loco, but after this, the 281st edition of the Engadget Podcast, we're excited about a future where desktop operating systems, mobile gaming and telecommunications platforms, and hoverboard interfaces converge into one new distinct product category. We're not sure exactly where in the Walmart it will sit, but we're sure they'll figure something out. They always do.
