Podcast: The Digital Lifestyle Show #288–CES 2011 Part1

Welcome to the first show of 2011, back from CES where we saw a lot of tech, some of it good and some of it very strange! This week on the show I have the first batch of CES 2011 interviews. At CES I was a little disappointed that Microsoft’s booth didn’t feature Windows Media Center as it had in the last few years but they did have a press room with lots of Windows Media Center systems powered by Windows Embedded which looked great and I have an interview with Mark Pendergrast from the Windows Embedded team but you will have to wait till next week for that.
