Episode Description

We're dubious about it catching on, but some say it could be a sea change in terms of interactive sharing and experiencing. Meanwhile, a judge has approved Apple's request to block U.S. sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, after Apple said the tablet was designed too much like an iPad.
