Sure there’s plenty of TV biz, connected TV, and social networking on the docket for this week’s episode, but stay tuned for a special throwback segment as we talk HDTV tech both past and future. The prospect of Super Hi-Vision bringing a fresh new look at the Olympic Games has us pretty excited, but the up and down week of Google TV does not yet engender such optimism. We’ve also got new hardware shipping from TiVo so press play to hear about that and more before we dive into what we’re watching / playing this week.
