3. Lab Rats? You mean you guys do animal testing?
No, PETA members need not be concerned. Lab Rats is a video-cast about technology you already own. If you are curious how your DVD player works, or which audio format is best or even how a codec works then LabRats, a TV show on the Internet, is where you can learn more. It's technology done informatively, and with all seriousness set aside. It is available for download via the Lab Rats web page, or through iTunes and other podcast directories.
