Trent Wolbe

One half of this week's podcast is coming live from Las Vegas, where we're checking out the National Association of Broadcasters show. There's plenty to talk about, from Media Center news centered around Windows 8 and Ceton's upcoming offering (expect details on a beta test soon) to the latest edition of MythTV. We'll also take a look at the latest shot fired by Reed Hastings at Comcast and ponder the possibilities of Sharp's new LCDs. All of that and more is waiting, o go ahead and press play.
