Engadget HD Podcast 097 - 08.13.2008

Trent Wolbe
Not much exciting news this week but plenty to talk about, as the Olympics have been occupying much of our time with all the HD goodness that's on almost 24 hours a day. The other topic that got more than its fair share of time this week was the TV Pack. We talk up the good and the bad and although we are enjoying the new features, we still don't understand why it is OEM only. Finally we really show our age as we take a walk down memory lane and tell our sad stories of college -- sans HDTVs in our dorm room of course.
