Keith Renty of IOGEAR gives us the low down on their Nano Shield technology. This coating lasts for a couple of years and kills all bacteria on your keyboard or mouse. This is aimed at the healthcare and education industry - but if you are a hypochondriac, it works for you as well.

Here at The Bleeding Edge, there are some issues that we normally just gloss over for the sake of our reputation. What you don’t know is that Andru Edwards is a very controlling, true gadget freak who can’t move past that issue, Sparky actually knows nothing about technology and is just full of himself, Nate True sucks at fiming our show, and Jesse Ferguson has to fix everything, and is just insanely uptight. Now, it has all been revealed. Check out this episode of The Bleeding Edge, where we go behind the scenes to meet everyone who makes the show happen.
I have no idea how we pulled this off, especially with stiff competition like Diggnation, Command-N, Systm, CrankyGeeks, and others - but we did it. Gear Live’s technology video podcast, The Bleeding Edge, won the award for Best Technology Video Blog. This is truly amazing, and an honor, and let’s us know that despite all the silliness and fun we are having doing what we do, there is a movement happening, and we are honored to be a part of it. Check the video above for a nice, truncated recap of The Vloggies. Oh, and yes - we couldn’t make it, and we didn’t send a video acceptance speech because, quite frankly, we didn’t think we would win!
Okay guys, here is where we can use a show of reader support - we want to feel the love. The first ever Vloggies Award Show is taking place on November 4, and we are pretty proud of our little show, The Bleeding Edge. Obviously, we hope that you guys are also enjoying it to - enough to nominate us for an award. The three that we have our eye on are Best Technology Vlog, Best Group Vlog, and…um…Best Vlog. Yeah, we know that Best Vlog is pretty much out of our reach, but it doesn’t hurt to try, right?
If you want to help out, here are the nomination submission links - Just fill in The Bleeding Edge and http://www.bleedingedgetv.com where appropriate:

We know many people who are wary of discarding their old hard drives, especially after the drives have died without offering the option to reformat. We know people who have opened them up and scratched up the platters manually, and others who just have a drawer full a bunch of drives. At Gear Live’s Seattle Mind Camp, Pablos of the Shmoo Group asked everyone to bring their old hard drives so that we could give them a proper burial. The result? An 8,000-degree hard drive meltdown, thanks to a little thermite.
IMPORTANT: We are surveying the viewers of our show to see what it is that people like, and more importantly, what they don’t like. It is anonymous, and just takes a couple of minutes. If you have the time, we would appreciate it! As always, feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.
