Bleeding Edge TV 517: Summer Gadget Bundle Giveaway

We are giving away a bunch of cool gadgets that are geared to amp up your summer, thanks to AT&T! As always, if you're a Gear Live Patron, you get 25 bonus entries. Here's a look at what we are giving away in this contest:

Jawbone mini Jambox: Okay, for real, who doesn't wanna have music with them when by the pool or at the beach? A lot of us have a seemingly unlimited amount of music accessible by our smartphones and tablets, and the mini Jambox allows you to stream it over Bluetooth. At the next family BBQ, you'll be the star of the show.

Jawbone UP24: Fitness wearables are all the rage these days, and if you like tracking your stats or are looking for a motivational tool, then it's easy to see why. With the UP24, you can monitor your fitness throughout the day, and even track your calories and water intake. At night, it'll even keep track of how well you are sleeping, which is probably not well if you're out camping in a tent. The device connects to your smartphone or tablet using Bluetooth LE, so the battery lasts a full week, and there's no plugging anything in to sync.

Bodyguardz Screenguardz Pure: I always thought it was kind of silly for people to protect their smartphone screens with a thin plastic film. The Screenguardz Pure is a super-thin piece of tempered glass that can actually take a real beating, and exceeds the hardness of steel. That's protection.

Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter video review

In this episode I give you a look at the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.

As Apple has started making its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines thinner, there's no longer room in the bezel for an Ethernet port. The solution? The Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter. This allows you to take advantage of the much smaller Thunderbolt port, and use it to connect directly to a wired Ethernet network. I show you how it works.

You can pick up the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet adapter now.

How to Upgrade Your Mac Pro SSD [Video]

In this episode I show you how to upgrade the PCIe SSD storage drive found in the redesigned Mac Pro (2013) from Apple. Doing it yourself, you can end up saving a bunch of money (as opposed to paying Apple directly for the storage increases,) and it's one of the simplest upgrades you can perform yourself on the Mac Pro.

In order to perform the upgrade, you'll need a CR-VT8 screwdriver (here's a cheap set on Amazon) and a PCI-e replacement SSD module. That's it! It'll take you about five minutes (or less!)

Since a lot of people were curious about if the WWE Network would be available on Apple TV, and how it would look compared to the other platforms out there, I went ahead and put together this video walkthrough and review. There are a bunch of pros to using an Apple TV for the Network, but one caveat that can be seen as a con.

If you like what you see from the Apple Mac Pro, you can pick one up here from B&H Photo.
