Engadget HD Podcast 090 - 06.26.2008

Trent Wolbe
Although the show is a little late this week, we have plenty to go over. For starters, we once again enjoy laughing at Toshiba and Kaleidescape for trying to tell us to stop trusting our eyes and start trusting them instead. Next, we try to figure out how long it'll take for Blu-ray discs to start out selling DVDs. We talk a little Vista Media Center, some digital transition, and finally a budget HT system that evidently is well worth the cost of admission.
