Engadget HD Podcast 256 - 07.12.2011

Trent Wolbe

This week's show is short but sweet, as it looks like we weren't the only ones recovering from a vacation hangover. Still, there was some news, with Comcast and Virgin Media launching new apps on Android, and a stinging surprise in v2.0 of Time Warner's iPad app. Panasonic also opened its doors to developers but we're not sure if they'll walk in right away, while Hulu puts all of its cards on the table in preparation for being sold. We also wonder whether the fuss over Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cables is deserved, while there could be a few good reasons why CBS would launch a 3D cable network -- and a bunch of bad ones. Closing out this week's podcast is Blu-ray news as Planet Earth Special Edition has a release date, and so does the 50th Anniversary Edition of Breakfast at Tiffany's.
