Since everyone loves (to hate) NBC's tape-delayed Olympics coverage we decided to push this latest episode of the podcast back a couple of days. Naturally the action from London and all of the discussion around the way it's being broadcast leads things off, but there is other news this week. Super Hi-Vision has had its public debut, Google Fiber TV is happening and Amazon's video is on the iPad. The only bad news? We won't have a new show next week as we take one week off, and we're still not ready to roll out those EHD Fantasy Football league invites again just yet. Until then, you've already waited long enough for this one, go ahead and press play.
