Bleeding Edge TV 569: Titan Lightning Cable Review

If you ever get tired of Apple's flimsy iPhone charging cables fraying, breaking, or getting chewed up by pets, you'll wanna be sure to give the Titan Lightning Cable a look. Made from two laters of flexible, high-strength steel, I've found the Titan cable to be durable enough to withstand my three dogs. Previously, any official cables from Apple would be destroyed within a week, while the Titan model from Fuse Chicken has held up for months.

Aside from the cabling itself, the Lightning and USB connectors on the Titan line are permanently sealed with a one-piece housing that's been fused directly over the electronics and metal cabling. Paired with the steel body, this is how the Titan is made to be a cable that lasts.

You can pick up the Titan Lightning Cable now, or if you are on Android, get the Titan microUSB Cable instead.

Bleeding Edge TV 568: Philips Hue Beyond review

The Philips Hue Beyond LED line includes a table lamp, ceiling lamp, and hanging pendant that allows you to set the scene with mood lighting and warm white task lighting. The Hue Beyond connects to your home network by way of the Hue Bridge, which lets you control it from iOS, Android, and Kindle devices from anywhere in your home (or even when you're away from home!) The unique thing about the Hue Beyond is that it has two independent light sources - an uplight and a downlight - which allows you to create a near endless mix of colors to match your mood, event, paint on the walls, or functional lighting for work or a task at hand.

You can also set timers, alarms, and even connect the lamp to a variety of apps and services by authenticating it to your IFTTT account.

I bring you a look at the Hue Beyond table lamp, and the Hue Beyond hanging pendant in this episode, showing you how to put it together, how to set up the Hue Beyond, and how to control it with the Hue app.

You can pick up the Hue Beyond now.
