Engadget HD Podcast 290 - 03.14.2012

Trent Wolbe

The new iPad and Apple TV are not only finally official, they're also both full HD-ready for the first time. As such, they're leading off this week's (slightly late-arriving, hopefully that hasn't completely ruined your scheduled listening plans) podcast, while we round out our Apple coverage with a look at the new iCloud-enabled wrinkle applied to the iTunes Digital Copy feature. Samsung and Panasonic are rolling out their newest HDTVs, Blu-ray players and audio systems, while Plex and MythTV continue to push new versions of their media player software. Of course, we're still not sure what the future could hold for Netflix and Big Cable, or Google's plans for Motorola's cable box business, but we'll consider the possibilities and much more in this week's podcast.
