Engadget Eurocast 048 - 12.17.13

While the overall state of news has been sparse, the ever-vigilant Daniel Cooper and his co-hosts have managed to find some choice topics to chew the fat over this week. Sharif delivers his first-person perspective of the e-inked, dual-screen YotaPhone and Matt drops some science on the discount tablet scene. The cherry on top of this news sundae, though, is Google's recent acquisition of the robot-centric Boston Dynamics. Hopefully the Doctor will be around if we get overrun by Cybermen again this holiday. But what's really in question is whether or not Sharif will enjoy Better Call Saul if Breaking Bad didn't do it for him. All of these important topics are up for careful consideration on this week's edition of the Engadget Eurocast.

Hosts: Dan Cooper, Matt Brian, Sharif Sakr

Producer: Jon Turi
