Engadget HD Podcast 243 - 04.05.2011

Trent Wolbe

And we're back. We've got plenty to talk about after week off, including some changes here at Engadget and the latest in 3D from Vizio and Dolby. It's only taken six months or so, but the InfiniTV is finally widely available so we had to give that a mention. Our poll and Ask Engadget HD also made the cut, before we dived into Cablevision's new Quick Views and an ugly Samsung rumor. Next up is our increasingly common iPad segment, investigating relevant news regarding Formula 1, AirPlay, Cablevision, Time Warner and Comcast. Finally, there's no way we could have two weeks of news without a few mentions of Netflix and Redbox that we saved for last.
