We were on-hand in Detroit where Ford revealed the 2015 Ford Edge to the world during its 2014 Trends Conference. Check out this video and watch the intro video, followed by the unveiling of the rebuilt SUV. As you can see and hear, the 2015 Ford Edge has been rebuilt from wheel to roof--all new design, and a ton of new technology features.

We're giving away an Absolute LoJack Premium Family Pack--protect up to five of your mobile devices for a year with guaranteed recovery in the event of theft!

The HP Elitebook Folio 1040 G1 aims to change the face of the business laptop. As you'll see in this episode of Unboxing Live, the Elitebook Folio 1040 G1 looks much more like a premium consumer-grade notebook as opposed to the typically more boring business models. It's super-thin and light at 3.3 pounds, and even has an SSD for quick read and write data. Check out the video for the full rundown. You can pick up your own HP EliteBook 1040 G1 here.
We are going #DigitallyDark, giving up our smartphones for a full 24 hours as part of the challenge thrown down by Absolute LoJack.
We talk about our thoughts on having a smartphone or laptop stolen, and talk about the #DigitallyDark challenge, which you can join us in doing!
The fact of the matter is that smartphone and laptop theft are running rampant, and once your device is gone, it's near impossible to get it back. Even the built-in tools can be circumvented. Absolute LoJack takes device recovery to the next level. They'll locate, lock, delete, and even guarantee recovery of your Mac, PC, or Android device. You can get 30% off of Absolute LoJack until 6/30 with promo code: DARK30.
We bring you a look at the LG G Flex smartphone in this episode of Unboxing Live. The device sports the obvious gorgeous, curved OLED 720p display, which is actually flexible to 180 degrees and also features self-healing material on the rear casing. For real. Other specs include the inclusion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 mobile processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera. We open it up, and show you what's included with the G Flex, and give you a full walkthrough of the device.
We show you how to install the Nest Protect smart smoke & carbon monoxide detector in this episode. The Nest Protect gets affiliated with your Nest account,which allows it to communicate with other Nest Protect devices in your home over Wi-Fi, as well as the Nest Smart Thermostat. It lights your path when you walk under it, and uses a proximity sensor to know when you are home in order to assist the thermostat in saving money. It also uses a human voice to alert you of fire and carbon monoxide danger. If you have any questions about the setup process, let us know over on our Patreon page.
In this episode of Bleeding Edge TV, I show you how to set up the Nest Protect. The easiest way to getthe smart connected smoke + carbon monoxide detector from Nest ready for installation is using the iPhone or Android smartphone apps that the company provides. Using the Nest app, you set up the Nest Protect on your Wi-Fi network, test its functions prior to installation, get familiar with its features, and then move on to installation (which will be in our next video.) If you have any questions about the setup process, let us know over on our Patreon page.
Don't forget to check out our Nest Protect unboxing as well!
In this episode I bring you a first-look at the new LEGO Fairground Mixer set. Part of the LEGO Creator series, the Fairground Mixer 10244 includes the Mixer ride, ticket booth, working dunk tank, test of strength area, 12 minifigures (including new throwing up minifig!), and two trucks that carry everything around. A hand crank makes the Mixer turn, or you can attach an automatic motor. This set was revealed at the Sydney Brickshow, and includes 1,746 individual pieces, so it'll take you a little while to get it all put together (it's rated at expert level, after all!) When all is said and done, though, you'll be left with a great-looking, usable carnival scene with working attractions. We give you a look at how it all works in this episode.
In this episode I give you a comparison review of the HTC One (M8) vs. the original HTC One. Last year, I named the HTC One as my favorite Android smartphone, and this year the HTC One M8 has a great chance at claiming the title again. We've received a bunch of questions from readers asking about the differences between the two devices, and if it is worth upgrading from the 2013 model to the new HTC One M8.
I go through each major change and upgrade (and, in one case, a downgrade) to give you a thorough look at what's new and what's changed!
