We recently put the Motorola SLVR and Motorola L6 phones to the test, and are ready to report back with our findings. If you are looking for an iTunes-compatible phone that also looks good (unlike the ROKR,) the SLVR just might be what you need if you are on Cingular’s network. If iTunes isn’t your thing - or if you have an iPod and don’t need a 100 song limit - then the blueish L6 might be more to your liking if ultra-slim phones are your thing. Download the video for our full review.

AOLOkay, hold on. Over a year ago, we reported that AOL would make it easier for customers looking to cancel their accounts. Apparently, someone didn’t get that memo. Vinny over at Insignificant Thoughts made the decision to cancel his AOL account, figuring that $14.95 per month could be spent in a much more beneficial way than giving it to AOL. He recorded his conversation with “John at AOL” and has made it available for all to hear. Truth be told, we got upset just listening to the atrocious service that Vinny received. Be sure to download the clip below to hear for yourself.

We caught up with Battlefield 2142 developers to get a preview of some of the new things that fans of the franchise can look forward to as the release date approaches. We get a look at the premise of the game, news guns and vehicles, storyline elements, along with the newly-introduced Titan mode.

WowWee demonstrated for us their new Roboreptile, a “quicker, more cunning” version of their Roboraptor. We must have missed the memo explaining that “quicker” and “more cunning” were now euphemisms for “spastic” and “utterly stupid.” Suffice to say, this interview was a brilliant exercise in professional courtesy, as we had to try our best not to break down and laugh as the pathetic, over-priced, and bizarre robotic toy (which we wouldn’t pay $20 for at Radio Shack) nearly flailed itself right off the table in a fit of white, melodramatic, plasticy rage.

This all makes for a very stark contrast to the Ugobe Pleo, a dinosaur-based artificial life form that features three times the sensors, intelligence to keep it from walking off a table, and the ability to communicate with other Pleo’s, along with a ton of other innovative features.

When asked about a successor to the sorry, largely pointless Roboreptile, we receive a “no, not really anything planned” which made the interview all the more special.

We can’t quite grasp what would encourage someone to throw away $120 at a crappy plastic dinosaur that doesn’t really do much but seize and fall over, but perhaps there’s a market in people who don’t really know any better. Stay away from this novelty at all costs.

Okay, so a little over a month or so ago, we asked Bleeding Edge viewers to get out there and create fan sites for the show. The person who we thought had the best site was promised an Xbox 360. Well, the results are in, and in this episode we announce the winner. Scilynt created Livin On Da Edge, and we liked it so much, we figured we would give him an Xbox 360 for his troubles. Hey, no crying because you didn’t win! In fact, we still have one more Xbox 360 to give away. If you want it, check out how to win.

Congrats Scilynt!

In this episode, we catch up with Ken Castle of SanDisk, and he gives us a rundown of all of the features of the new Sansa e260. If you are looking for something that will provide you a lot more features than the iPod nano - at a cheaper price - the Sansa e260 looks to be it. Ken tells us why you should own one. Look for our review in a future episode.

Ponzi Archetype

We had our girl Ponzi take the new Tom Bihn Archetype bag (in Leopard print!) for a spin since we knew she would look a lot better carrying around a bag like this than we would. She tested the bag with her 12” ThinkPad, and reports back with her thoughts on the new bag. You can check out the Archetype Gallery for more images, and the full review after the jump.

iVod Video Review

In case you missed our video review of the Vaja iVod Video, we figured we would flesh out our thoughts in print as well. The Vaja iVod Video cases for the 5th generation iPod with video are impressive, and this one was made using the Vaja Choice service. First impressions count, and as you can see, the product was custom-made with Gear Live orange and gray taking center stage. We took tons of images which you can find in our iVod Video Gallery, and give our full impressions, after the jump.

In this special episode of The Bleeding Edge, we take a look at Gear Live’s latest Mind Camp event. Held semi-annually in Seattle, Mind Camp is a gathering featuring some of the smartest tech geeks around. Here is what we have for you:

Best part for me? The massage. Hurt so good, and had me feeling like a new man. One note - the Xbox 360 contest that we mention in this episode is now over, and the winner will be announced shortly.
