Engadget Podcast 244 - 06.17.2011

Right before our interview with Ron Howard, we talk about eReader evolution, gaming execution, and a 3D phone revolutions. Was that a haiku? We're not sure because we forgot how to count, but we hope you caught the part about there being an interview with Ron Howard toward the end. We're all "really? really!" about it, and we think you might be too. Listen all the way to the end for a red-headed dessert on an already nutritious and fulfilling episode of the Engadget Podcast.
