Engadget Podcast 086 - 08.29.2006

Trent Wolbe
Just what happens when some dude on the internet cracks Microsoft's PlaysForSure DRM scheme and sets a few major online media companies reeling, the Zune gets outed on the FCC, Apple settles, kisses, and makes up with Creative, then recalls 1.8 million Sony-built batteries, Dell axes the DJ Ditty, and the TiVo Series3 gets leaked on the internets? One bizarre week for news, and Engadget Podcast 86. Enjoy!
