Bleeding Edge TV 585: iPad Pro 9.7-inch Review

Apple released a new, 9.7-inch version of the iPad Pro two weeks ago. It’s an effort to reinvigorate tablet sales, while offering additional features not ever seen on a tablet before…but is it worth your money? In this episode I explain why this is one of the best tablets you can buy.

My final verdict? If you’re in the market for a new tablet, it’s hard to go wrong with choosing the iPad Pro 9.7 inch if you don’t need anything bigger. Forget about the Pro moniker, and just enjoy it for what it is - the best tablet that Apple has ever made. You can pick up the iPad Pro 9.7-inch model starting at $599 for the 32GB, $749 128GB, and $899 256GB if you want a Wi-Fi model. If you want a cellular version, those are  $729 for 32GB, $879 for 128GB, and $1029 for 256GB.

Bleeding Edge TV 580: LG G5 Camera Review: Best Smartphone Camera?

In this LG G5 camera review, you'll find out why I think the LG G5 is the best smartphone camera available right now. This is a follow-up to the LG G5 Review that I published a few weeks ago, which if you haven't seen, you should check out.

The LG G5 features a dual-camera system, with one 16 megapixel camera with 75-degree field of view, along with an 8 megapixel wide angle  shooter with a 135-degree field of view. You get full access to both modules for photos and video, and I give you examples of what each can do so you can see for yourself.

All video and image content is taken directly off of the LG G5 smartphone with no filters or effects added.

Bleeding Edge TV 579: HP EliteBook Folio G1 hands-on

The HP EliteBook Folio G1 is a slim ultrabook laptop that aims to take on the Apple MacBook with an optional 4K display and dual USB-C ports. I chat with HP about the new EliteBook Folio G1 in this interview to get the details on what went into making this device special.

As you'll see, aside from the 4K UHD panel and the two USB-C ports (one of which supports Thunderbolt 3,) you also get premium Bang & Olufsen speakers, and a 12.4mm thin body with the 12-inch display. The hinge also goes to a full 180 degrees, and it's all powered by second-generation Intel Core M processors.

Bleeding Edge TV 572: Sonos Play:5 review

Sonos has introduced the second-generation Play:5 wireless HiFi speaker, and we bring you our full Sonos Play:5 review in this episode.

A lot has gone into the redesign of the new Play:5, which you'll notice sports a curvier look and does away with the awkward handle that was found on the original model. On the inside, you've got a collection of six drivers with dedicated amplifiers behind the grille.

Being a smart speaker, the Sonos Play:5 integrates with the rest of the Sonos HiFi wireless audio system. It connects to your home network by way of the Sonos app, and from there, can stream music from just about any source you can think of--whether it's a streaming music service, podcasts, or files stored on your local network.

The new TruePlay feature allows you to accurately and automatically tune the sound of the Play:5 to be optimized for its placement in the room that you're in using an iOS device, and it really works.

Check the video for the full Sonos Play:5 review - if you're looking for a smart speaker that packs a serious punch when it comes to sound and features, this is the one to get.

Bleeding Edge TV 570: HP Spectre x360 OLED laptop

I got a look at the HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 OLED notebook during the Showstoppers event at CES 2016, and it was one of the most surprising laptops I got my hands on during the show. As you'll see in the video, HP put a lot of effort into developing a PC that is both gorgeous and multifunctional. The end result is a 2-in-1 notebook that can be used in a variety of orientations (standard laptop, tent mode, tablet mode, and reverse mode,) with Bang & Olufsen sound, and a gorgeous OLED touchscreen display.

I chat with Mike Nash, Head of Customer Experience at HP, about the Spectre x360 line, including the model that sports that fantastic OLED display and incredible ash gray finish, in this episode.

Bleeding Edge TV 556: TiVo Bolt movie theater prank

TiVo just pranked a movie theater full of people in order to show off its new TiVo Bolt DVR! I flew down to Boulder, CO to be a part of the #TiVoSurprise event, where people were invited to see a screening of the James Bond 007: Spectre movie at the local Cinebarre. Near the end of the movie, commercial interruptions started happening, and people grew more and more upset at each one, with metal popcorn bowls and glass bottles getting thrown at the screen! Finally, TiVo came out and revealed the prank, and as a reward for hanging in there, everyone in the theater went home with a free TiVo Bolt with a one-year subscription included. It was very cool, and very funny to witness. Check it out in the video, and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments!

Bleeding Edge TV 555: Philips Hue Go review

The Philips Hue Go personal wireless light might be the coolest lighting accessory I've ever used. As you can see in the video, it looks like a cereal bowl that's been filled with light that you can carry around with you. You can turn on the natural dynamic effects feature for a living light color show, or set it to one of 16 million different colors of light with a 300 lumen light output. It's controllable with the Hue Light app for iOS and Android, but also has a button on the back that allows you to cycle through a bunch of different colors without the need for a smartphone or tablet.

The only downside is that you do need to have a Philips Hue Starter Kit or Hue Bridge in order to use it to its full potential, so if you don't already have a Hue system set up, that will set you back an extra $50 or so. Still, it's a great lighting accessory.

Bleeding Edge TV 554: Apple Pencil Review

I bring you my Apple Pencil review in this episode. Apple designed the Apple Pencil alongside the new iPad Pro, to allow artist to draw and sketch on the tablet, but also for everything to be able to write and take notes as well. I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination, but I was very impressed by what I could accomplish with the iPad Pro once I had the Apple Pencil in my hands.

It gives an immediate sense that you can do more with the iPad, and when you go into an app that is use for image editing or drawing, even someone like me all of a sudden feels capable. It's rare that I get that Apple feeling that a lot of people who aren't technically inclined get. I'm an expert, and know all the features and how they work. With the Apple Pencil though, I definitely felt it - I'd say that I suck at drawing and fail at Photoshop...but with the Apple Pencil, I was empowered to try those activities with surprising results.

I highly recommend the Apple Pencil to buyers of the iPad Pro!
