Buzz Out Loud 1381: It's raining tablets (podcast)

BOL is coming to you live from the CES 2011 stage, and it's raining tablets. So, you probably want to duck, because those things are heavy. Har har. Asus, Lenovo, Vizio, and MSI have already bowed theirs, although LG is saving its announcement for a separate press conference. (Motorola is yet to come.) Plus, OnLive makes even more smart moves, and you can get a text from your oven. --Molly
