Engadget Podcast 374 - 12.26.13

This week's podcast ditches the studio and delivers the mellifluous voices of Brian, Terrence and Billy without all that video nonsense, leaving much to the imagination. The news tidbits are real, however, and the discussion launches into tasty gadget gifts, spearheaded by Apple's shiny new Mac Pro. Avegant has a new immersive display arriving soon and Canonical is giving the gift of dual-booting this season, so that Android users can get in on the Ubuntu experience, too. It's a festive bit of banter this week, so heat up those leftovers, grab a tasty beverage and settle in for another edition of the Engadget Podcast.
