Amazon.com Streaming Prime Instant Video to Xbox 360

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "The Competition" @ 01:49 PM

"You can already stream Prime Instant Videos on your Kindle Fire, your PlayStation 3, your Roku, and hundreds of other TVs, Blu-ray players, and set-top boxes. Today, we're excited to announce that the Xbox 360 joins the fold."

About time! And you can also set up a "wait list" much like the que you set up in Netflix. Too bad they don't have it set up for iPad or for Apple TV but at least you can watch it on your Mac. Personally, the more they add to Xbox 360 the happier I get since it means I'm that much closer to getting rid of Dish Network. I'm almost there actually, between this and Hulu + and Apple TV, along with the iPad apps I use I pretty much can get all I want except for sports. And for that I can always go to a bar or a friends house, sports are more fun to watch in groups anyway right?

Should the Unemployed Buy New Macs to Find Jobs? The Onion Panel Weighs In

No matter where you fall on the Apple/Windows side of the fence, you have to admit this is utterly hilarious - I love the way it plays to the fanboy stereotypes. ;-)

LG Optimus Pad 3D Video In Action

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android Slates/Tablets & Accessories" @ 11:30 PM

http://androinica.com/2011/02/14/lg...video-hands-on/

"Does the world really need 3D mobile devices? No, but companies are going to keep putting them out. That's why the LG Optimus Pad, announced at MWC 2011, garnered so much attention today."

3D video recording on a tablet/phone may just be the ultimate in "Why? Because I can". Personally I cannot think of a single situation were recording video in the old school red/green 3D would provide any real benefit. Would I do it if I could? Probably. Would I go out of my way to buy a device capable of it? Probably not. The capability of recording true 3D video on a mobile device is very cool for sure but it may be just a bit too gimmicky to really sell a device. What about you? Any of you guys who can't wait to get some 3D on your next mobile device? Click through for a video of the device in action.

The BIOS As You Knew It Is Finally Dying

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 05:00 PM

If you're a power user who has ever done overclocking, you've no doubt spent hours in your system BIOS tweaking settings and reminiscing on the early '90s when we were still using DOS. The computer BIOS hasn't significantly changed in well over a decade - some might say two decades - but, finally, the old BIOS as you knew it is dead. Long live UEFI!

Video Walkthrough of the RIM Playbook

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 12:00 PM

http://www.bgr.com/2010/12/08/black...+Genius+Report)

"We promised a hands on demo video of the BlackBerry PlayBook, and that's what you're going to get from us - almost 10 minutes of 1080p joy. As we said previously, we were pretty impressed seeing the PlayBook demo'd in person right in front of us, and well, we could go on for days."

The Playbook is looking like a real-deal competitor to the iPad - but only in terms of hardware. The harder piece is the ecosystem of developers making apps, and entertainment companies providing content. That's not an easy problem to solve...

RIM Playbook vs. the iPad in Browser Performance Tests

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 10:17 AM

Keeping in mind of course that this is a video from RIM, it's still hard to dismiss the differences shown in the video - the Playbook appears to handily beat the iPad in terms of browser performance. But performance isn't everything; it needs to be balanced off against battery life. The iPad has a single core Cortex A8 processor at 1 Ghz; the RIM Playbook has two cores, possibly based on the Cortex A9 processor. So while it performance faster, it might also chew through battery life faster - until the final specs are known, and independent battery tests can be performed, it's too early to make a call. Still, things are looking good for the RIM Playbook!

ASUS Eee PC 1215T Official Unboxing

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Asus Laptops & Netbooks" @ 03:00 PM

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PFj...player_embedded

"We unboxed the Eee PC 1215T, the first AMD-Powered 12-inch nebook from ASUS and the first to feature the AMD Athlon II Neo K125 1.70GHz processor and ATI Radeon HD 4250 graphic card. This LED-backlit netbook has HDMI-out, is good for up to 6 hours of battery life and weighs just 3.21 lbs."

It's a bit odd to see big companies doing their own unboxings - it's not like we're going to see an unbiased opinion - but if you've got your eye on the new Asus 1215T (I seriously can't keep track of their model numbers), you'll want to watch this video.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Unboxed...In Italian!

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Other Slates & Tablets" @ 11:03 AM

What's that? You want an unboxing in a lyrical language that you can't understand about a gadget that you really want? BOOM. Here you go. It's an unboxing of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and it's in Italian. My Italian is about as good as my Atlantean (as in, non-existent), but boy, that's one nice looking Android tablet!

HP's tm2 Laptop: Unboxing and First Impressions

Posted by Jason Dunn in "HP Laptops & Netbooks" @ 12:40 PM

This is an unboxing and first impressions video of the HP tm2 laptop [affiliate] - also known as a tablet PC because of the touch screen, though it's worth pointing out that HP doesn't use that term anymore. The exact model I'm reviewing is the 1070ca, on loan to me for a few weeks from HP Canada. The exact model and configuration will change depending on where you are in the world, but the basics are the same. Read more...
