Engadget Podcast 173 - 12.07.2009

We're late, and we're sorry. You've come to expect your podcasts within a vague and yet rigidly-defined four day window, and we betrayed that trust. After all, if you can't expect to have piping hot discussion of the week in technology news delivered to your inner ear the very week it happens, what can you believe in? Sports superstars? Your government? Please, let's not be foolish. If you can find it in your heart to forgive us, you'll find that you're mere moments from obtaining a particularly inspired podcast for your portable listening device, one that's full of entertaining guests like Chris Ziegler and Michael Gartenberg harshing on Nokia, and a truly eye-opening examination of new media's search for a tablet savior. We'd almost say it's worth the wait, but we wouldn't want to presume on your valuable patience.

Hosts: Joshua Topolsky, Nilay Patel, Paul Miller
Guests: Chris Ziegler, Michael Gartenberg
Producer: Trent Wolbe
Song: BetaClubFieldTrip - You Belong With Me
