Engadget HD Podcast 296 - 04.25.2012We weren't expecting to see the Wii U take the top slot in this week's podcast, but we also weren't expecting the Cardinals to take out the Patriots. We'll get to the bottom of Nintendo's TVii all the same, as well as the latest news from Google Fiber, Ceton and a slew of freshly updated apps. Finally, we'll dive into the first wave of new TV arrivals for the fall, and a few high profile Blu-ray releases for this week.
