After a few weeks off for the holidays, the show returns… and we couldn’t have picked a better time. CES 2013 has wrapped up, so the podcast takes a look at what’s new. And, unless you’re the Verge and miss the point of the show, 3D is most certainly not dead.
What’s alive in a big way? 4K Ultra HD TVs and software. Curved 4K screens? They’re out there. Market confusing, “Mastered in 4K” Blu-rays? Yep. How about muddying, upscaling 4K Blu-ray players? They had those too. Maybe Netflix is gearing for the 4K game? It’s possible since they’re offering a souped up service with 3D (see Verge?).
Need more? Well, NVIDIA is diving into the Android market with Project Shield, and then you have the iPotty because Phil transgressed to his youth and thought it was amazing.
