Engadget logoWe're still catching up on all the none CES news that came out during CES and one item was of a favorite topics around here; the success of Blu-ray. To make things more interesting though we brought on a guest, Jeremy Toeman, who although agrees shares many of our same values, thinks Blu-ray is floundering -- you can just imagine where this discussion goes. After we get back to the normally schedule program, we cover the funny Lexicon Blu-ray story, as well as Disney and Netflix, Comcast's ugly new guide, and the cold fusion equivalent of the HDTV industry. Finally we close with a talk about how much fun we had being a part of HD Nation.
