Episode 29: CES Special

Rothgar’s favorite items from CES 2010. Also this was supposed to be done as a different episode so sorry if there are random edits where I changed numbers and corrected myself on a few acronyms. I left a few mistakes still in the podcast but trying to edit that stuff out is hard. 🙂
I also threw in some different music this time just to mix things up. Let us know what you think. The music is from DanoSongs.com and is called “Crazy From the Message”.

Here is all the stuff I talk about in this episode so you can read up more about it.
