With this week's big keynote failing to produce any Apple TV-related products, our hosts Ben Drawbaugh and Richard Lawler are left to speculate on the reasons behind Amazon's recent stock issues with the little hockey puck. As the discussion moves over to the streaming front, U-Verse live TV arrives on Android, NVIDIA's Shield is breaking out of the small screen with its new Gamestream tech and Sky / Roku's Now TV box bundles have arrived at retail. Join us after the break for this week's episode of the Engadget HD Podcast, but you'd better hurry, before Ben gets roped into another round of Lego Star Wars.
Producer: Jon Turi
