Engadget HD Podcast 281: CES 2012 - 01.11.2012

We're live and in your faces from CES 2012, with our first podcast, including video taken right on the AOL / Engadget stage between North and Central hall. We had plenty to discuss, from Dish's big announcements to Ceton's too-good-to-be-true embedded Media Center DVR. There's all kinds of new display tech floating around, and the streaming video market is as murky as ever. Join us as we give our opinions on all this intrigue and try to keep up with the flood of CES news by pressing play, or check after the break for the embedded video. Also, check back Thursday night at 11PM ET for another live video podcast directly from the show floor.
