    Here’s the latest 4MR audio report from MediaShift. In this week’s edition, I consider the hype around 3D TV at the Consumer Electronics Show. While many companies and even cable channels are announcing 3D TV initiatives, it seems doubtful that huge numbers of people will be drawn to the technology this year. Plus, Google unveiled its Nexus One phone to decent reviews, but it might have trouble with other phone makers who use Android and don’t want to compete with Google hardware.
