This is the last EHD podcast of the year and the last until we’re on the ground at CES, so next week will be one of our rare misses — we’ll make it up to you, we promise. Until then, there’s plenty of news to tide us over as LG, Sony and Samsung have all been busy with pre-CES teases of their latest technology. Also seeing a lot of action is the mobile remote apps segment, while newcomer RUWT?! has our attention, Roku, DirecTV, Western Digital, Logitech and Control4 all also had something to contribute. Verizon also has a new media server DVR replacement to talk about, while HBO Go has extended its reach to all major cable providers and the Super Bowl will be streaming online for the first time. We’ll check in again from Vegas in a few days, until then press play and have a happy New Year!
