Gadgets in the living room

The latest episode of Om and Niall PodSessions is now available for your listening pleasure. This week Om and I talk about the latest consumer electronics announcements from CES over the last week and some of the emerging trends for new gadgets in the living room.

I liked the Intel Core Duo announcement and its energy-efficient design. New laptops utilizing the technology have over 11 hours of battery life! I was also impressed by XM Radio’s new XM Passport hardware, a tiny 1.5″ square satellite radio tuner that can be inserted into multiple devices similar to a SIM card.

Om rants about how Silicon Valley can’t create consumer electronics devices, why Google and Yahoo! should not be giving keynotes at a consumer electronics show, and asks why no one is making more consumer-friendly gadgets.

This week’s episode, Geeking Out the Living Room, is 20 minutes and 53 seconds in length, a 9.6 MB download.
