Engadget Podcast 296 - 06.01.2012

The Engadget Podcasters are doubling down on tech talk this week, filling the empty shelves of your patent office with news you can use about the hottest cloud- and hard drive-based operating systems released this week. The jock from That 70's Show also gets more than his fair share of discussion, as he tends to do. Like a pixelated bat out of a Ghouls n' Ghosts hell, it's The Engadget Podcast.
