Engadget Podcast 256 - 09.16.2011

This week, the Engadget Podcasters get caught up in the Windows racket--and who can blame them? It was Build week, and while a lot of other things happened too, it's not every day, or week, or even year that we get a reveal of something this massive in the computing universe. The games, the cars, the and chips take a backseat while we step back and admire the cross-platform spectacle of Number 8.
