We have survived. The long hot summer is drawing to an end and as the days again grow shorter that can only mean one thing: football is back. While everyone stocks up on supplies for the longest football Saturday ever we've got a new podcast for you to check out, as we cover the latest TV apps for the Xbox 360, Google TV and even a relaunch of the TV Guide app on iOS. It's also time to look towards the future as IFA 2012 gets rolling LG is already shipping its first 4K HDTV while the ITU has locked down a standard for 8K broadcasts. While we wait for those to become reality we'll be watching the games (and Doctor Who, and the midseason finale of Breaking Bad) in standard HD, while choosing winner in our NFL Pick 'Em league.
