What seemed like a slow week ended up giving us plenty to talk about, which is mostly because of the Olympics. This excitement was despite the fact that NBC tape delays -- do we still call it that when we know there are no tapes involved? -- too much, and in some cases everything, and the fact that the interactive features leave a lot to be desired. We eventually move on and talk streaming from Netflix and EPIX, and how low our expectations are for TiVo's announcement in a few weeks. Of course we talk a little 3D and how much cheaper it is than most thought it'd be, and finally we move on to fun things like law suits, wireless HDMI and spectrum buy back options.
