Kinda totally not related, but a podcast I am currently loving is - http://www.zombiepodcast.com/The_Zombie_Podcast/Main.html
There is some really good voice acting, and 33 episodes as of right now.
The latest tech announcement that I have heard lots of people going on about is the 'surface' that Microsoft announced. I have two ipads so I wouldnt be going that direction when it comes out, and WinRT sounds a bit crazy for early adopters.

You're not the only one.
I'm pretty excited about Lenovo's Thinkpad X1 Carbon, which is supposed to come out sometime this summer, and Asus's Zenbook UX31A, which apparently was just made available, but I haven't figured out how to get one. The Thinkpad T43p I'm typing this on is almost seven years old and is overdue for replacement. In fact, I've already replaced the fan and the screen, and now the replacement fan sounds like it's near the end of its life.
I'm not really a tablet guy, but the Vivaldi tablet is pretty interesting. It will ship with honest-to-goodness GNU/Linux/KDE installed, but the hardware is unlocked, so you'd be able to replace it with your OS of choice. Like I said, I'm not a tablet person, so I don't know if the specs are up to snuff, but it's something to keep an eye on.
Actually, I've kinda been debating which one of those to get, too. Living in Belgium means we get most of our American TV via torrents, so having a box that'll play them with an easy interface is something on my list. WD plays almost any format, but the Roku has some nice additional apps.
