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

80GB Silver iPodMan, Apple just knows how to get the ol’ Internets all riled up, don’t they? Now it seems that, according to Think Secret, there will not be an iPod video unveiling at the October 12 press show. Instead, they think we can expect small upgrades to the current iPod line which would include an 80GB iPod, and a new silver color option. We should also expect updates Power Macs and PowerBooks. Now, call me crazy, but isn’t 80GB just a tad large for an iPod that is solely dedicated to music? Time will tell.

Google Maps LocalThe thing about Google is that they are perfectly happy releasing a product under the Beta tag, and leaving it there, right? Not so with Google Local and Google Maps. The services have been combined under the Google Local brand, with the maps now offering hours of operation, links to reviews, and other local business information under the “Details” tab of the address bubble. Pretty nifty.

Oakley THUMP 2Hold up, Oakley’s THUMP glasses did well enough to warrant a sequel? Lil’ John must have spent a pretty penny on these bad boys.

The THUMP 2 glasses and MP3 player hybrid will support MP3, WMA, WAV, and iTunes AAC. Users will use a USB 2.0 connection to move their music over to the THUMP 2 glasses.

Dremel Pumpkin CarvingWhile we haven’t been at the pumpkin carving forefront over the past few years, we certainly welcome the opportunity to use a Dremel tool on something that, if ruined, we won’t cry about. That is what makes the Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit such a draw. Complete with detailed instructions for carving elaborate designs into the squash, the Dremel tool sells for $30. Is there a happier way to get into Halloween? We think not.

This just may be the ultimate way to let others know you are a true geek, even when you are in a formal situation.

Apple October 12What did we tell you? Sources told us that another iPod announcement wasn’t too far off - although we thought it wouldn’t come until November. That may still be the case, as ThinkSecret believes that Apple is just priming everyone for a PowerBook and Power Mac spec update. That would leave November open for us to be 100% right - but analysts are a-buzzin’, and many believe that the iPod movie or iPod video or Video iPod is a sure bet for the 12th. I mean, why else have theater curtains on the invitation? That being said, there is no reason that Apple can’t make more than one announcement. How about an iVideo Movie Store integrated into iTunes while we’re at it?

TiVo VCR FuneralIt looks like the official death of the VCR will be happening later this month at DigitalLife in New York. You see, TiVo has taken it upon themselves to make funeral arrangements, and be in charge of the funeral itself. Even better, if an attendee brings a video tape and hands it over to TiVo, they will walk away with a free TiVo unit (after agreeing to sign up for a service contract.) Interestingly enough, I find it odd that TiVo has the gall to call another technology dead. I mean, isn’t this like the whole pot-kettle-black thing?
