In Seattle? We will be giving away iPhone gear at Alderwood Mall Apple Store tonight!

Alderwood Mall iPhone 3G

Hey Seattle line-waiters - Gear Live is gonna be in full effect at the Alderwood Mall Apple Store starting tonight at midnight. We are gonna be in line to make sure we get our hands on a white iPhone 3G, and we figured that instead of sitting around like a bunch of geeks who sit in line waiting for a cell phone launch (which we totally aren’t), we would have some fun. We will have a bunch of iPhone accessories available that we will be giving away, and we will have an early preview of Tap Tap Revenge to show off. We will do some one-on-one games in Tap Tap, and winners will get some cool gear.

We will also have our cameras with us as well so we can get all your opinions and thoughts on all things Apple for Bleeding Edge TV. So if you are in the area and plan on waiting in line for iPhone 3G to launch in the morning, hit up the Alderwood Mall location with us. We promise that our awesomeness won’t kill you.

EDIT: I am andruedwards on Twitter. I know a bunch of you are on that.

The construction on this PC is amazing, but with its $7000 price tag we’re not sure we’re ready to upgrade just yet. The Omen is currently only available to former Voodoo customers on an invite-only basis, so if you are looking to get your hands on one, you might just be out of luck.

At the booth during , we had the pleasure of looking at their new EeeStick video gaming controllers. Similar to the ‘s Wii Remote and Nunchuk, aiming and player movement is controlled by swinging the right controller around and moving the left thumbstick.

Bleeding Edge TV 274: A Look Into the Future with HP’s Phil McKinney

At HP’s event in Berlin, Germany, we caught up with the CTO of HP’s Public Systems Group, Phil McKinney, who had some very interesting things to say about where HP believes the future will take us.

Phil talked with us about what’s coming in the future of technology - everything from wearable computing to a very advanced “avatar” that is programmed to make decisions just like you would, only you can send it to a meeting while you get to go play video games. We look forward to seeing what the future holds. Thanks Phil!


Bleeding Edge TV 273: Gigabyte’s NetBook M912 Tiny Convertible Tablet PC

Gigabyte’s Brendon Lo says that the M912 should be out somewhere around July 2008.

AMD shows us how the home theatre PC arena is getting exciting again. Thanks to AMD Live!, manufacturers are finally creating affordable high-quality and high-performance components for the home theatre PC.

Bleeding Edge TV 271: Hands-on with the new HP TouchSmart PC

At ‘s Connecting Your World event in Berlin, Germany, we talked with John Cook, VP of marketing for HP’s Consumer PC group. He gave us a hands-on first look at the beautiful new HP PC.

One thing we really liked about the new TouchSmart is its completely redone interface.  The software looks clean, polished, useful, and eminently easy to use.  It would be great, however, if the TouchSmart made more use of multi-touch.  Cook demonstrates a pinch gesture in the software but that’s pretty much it.  We’re keeping our eyes peeled for more functionality in upcoming software updates and releases.

Bleeding Edge TV 260: Our CES 2008 blooper reel

We hope you’ve all enjoyed our video coverage. We’ve gone through our hours of footage, and picked out some of the best bloopers that our staff experienced. We know how disappointed you all probably are to realize that we aren’t perfect, but we think you should have gathered that from the Gear Live documentary.

Anyhow, have at it. We look forward to making fools out of ourselves again come 2009. Oh, and next year we will have to try and beat “hot dog guy” in the category of overall buffoonery. You’ll have to watch the video to see what we mean.
