Show Notes

Hour 1: Rick Broida, the Gadget Guy, brings the full Consumer Electronic Show Report

When Rick Broida steps into the studio, the fun has just begun.  He always brings great insight into the events he covers and usually at great prices since he is the official Cheapskate reporter on CNet.  Another thing is that Rick usually brings some fun toys for all of us to get hands on and today was no exception to the rule.
