The wait is over and the world can once again bask in the cool blue glow of next-generation consoles, as both the Sony (s SNE) Playstation 4 and Microsoft’s (s MSFT) Xbox One were officially released. On this week’s podcast we talk about the Xbox One as a media device, especially in the wake of much cheaper (and admittedly less beefier) streaming devices like the Chromecast, which just got HBO GO. Then we shift gears to talk about a big solar farm Apple (s APPL) built and the heat Tesal (s TSLA) is taking after a few fires broke out in its Model S car.
