This Week On The TechCrunch Gadgets Podcast: Boxee Bows Out, Samsung And HTC Suffer And Moto X Unmasked

Boxee got bought by Samsung this week, and announced that it would be closing down the Boxee Cloud DVR’s cloud DVR feature. So that’s done. Both Samsung and HTC disappointed investors, albeit in very different ways, and Motorola’s next big play got some early details.

We’re chatting about that and more on today’s TechCrunch Gadgets Podcast, on this Friday after the July 4th holiday. We’re so festive you can practically taste the BBQ.

Today on the show fearless leader John Biggs is absent, but Matt Burns valiantly steps in to lead Greg Kumparak, Darrell Etherington and Chris Velazco into battle. Strap in, take a swig from the beer in that stars-and-stripes patterned beer koozie and enjoy!

We invite you to enjoy our weekly podcasts every Friday at 3pm Eastern and noon Pacific.
