Engadget Podcast 090 - 10.03.2006

Another busy couple of weeks for gadget news in Engadget land: Zune came out swinging with price and release dates, Microsoft launched a lawsuit against Viodentia and whomever else is behind FairUse4WM -- Viodentia responded with a new version of the app -- DVD Jon got back in the mix on FairPlay DRM (but not how you'd think), Mobile ESPN folded, HP bought VoodooPC, batteries were being recalled left and right by Sony, and (almost done!) they also managed to loose the Reader and the SE / Fossil Bluetooth watch upon us. What fun. We've got all the usual commentary, jocular fooling around, and other such banter on Podcast 90!
