In this episode:

  • Nvidia raises up the Shield Tablet for those looking for a TV-tablet gaming hybrid. But it's not the first tablet for serious gamers. Last year, Razer cooked up the Edge, which runs Windows 8.
  • Netflix continues to grow, surpassing 50 million subscribers. What could help it grow further? Perhaps gift cards in stores. Private viewing options would also be a nice addition.
  • Learn about a new option for streaming your TV to another screen. The new Slingbox M1 connects to your DVR or cable box to stream digital television to another device, like a smartphone or tablet.
