Engadget HD Podcast 249 - 05.17.2011

Trent Wolbe

This week on the podcast we welcome the founders of Next3D on to talk about their technology that's bringing high quality 3D streams over the internet. After that it's off to the weekly news including yet another Dish Network shocker, all the big news from Google I/O about automation, movies and Google TV. We also found time to squeeze in topics from Netflix on Android to the restoration of the PSN, so all that's left now is for you to press play.
