Engadget HD Podcast 261 - 08.16.2011

Back with very little delay, it's another episode of the Engadget HD Podcast. The shocking news of the week is certainly Google's deal to purchase Motorola Mobility, so we brought on our good friend and industry insider Jeremy Toeman to figure out what Motorola might mean for Google TV. Of course, that's not all that happened this week, so we've also got news from TiVo, Zediva, Warner Bros and Cablevision. Hulu is launching in Japan, the PS3 is a better Blu-ray 3D player and it's also the season for our back to school HDTV buying advice, so listen in on the reasoning for our picks and see if you agree. Finally, we've got Runco's cheapest projector out, a new push from Niveus and of course our TV picks for the week before getting ready for some football.
