Commutist Podcast: Boxee cloud DVR, Apple rumors, Surface and Chromebook

commutist_featuredimage

Starting today’s audio podcast is a blend of new and old: Janko Roettgers explains how Boxee’s new product works while Kevin shares a bit of HDTV  tuner box history. With Apple’s media event next week, now’s a good time for Erica Ogg to share thoughts on the latest possible Apple product news.

Mac mini, Retina Display on a 13-inch MacBook Pro and iMac upgrades are all in the mix but will they take backstage to a smaller Apple iPad? Hopefully, they’ll help folks forget this week’s EPEAT fiasco. And Kevin talks about the different messages Microsoft and Google are sending out about their respective products: Surface with Windows RT and a $249 Chromebook that runs on smartphone-like chips.
