In this episode I bring you my thoughts on the new Apple smartphone line, which now includes the iPhone 5s, as well as the lower-budget iPhone 5c.

Bleeding Edge TV 490: Fiesta Movement Forza Motorsport 5 behind-the-scenes

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at your favorite video game companies? For my August Ford #FiestaMovement Gaming mission, I visited Turn 10 Studios, maker of the Forza Motorspot racing games to get a look. I starred in a behind-the-scenes documentary that focuses on Turn 10 and the upcoming release of Forza Motorsport 5 for Xbox One, and in my mission video, I give you a look at that whole process.

You'll see me on set, cameras and microphones in my face. You'll see me in makeup, getting my head powdered. You'll also see me race again the best Forza Motorsport player at Turn 10 in a moving chair with 3 HD displays in front of me. Intense, right?

I also talk with Dan Greenwalt, the main man at Turn 10, about what makes a great Forza player, and I take Gabriel Garcia, the man in charge of building the in-game vehicles and making them look amazing, on a joy ride in the 2014 Ford Fiesta ST.

Bleeding Edge TV 489: Fiesta Movement Pro Wrestling 101

Okay, if you don't know, I used to be a pro wrestler. That's right, I'd put my tights on every week, step through the curtain, and enter a 20 x 20 wrestling ring to entertain a crowd of people, and I loved it. That was a long time ago, and now I bring you the hottest news in the consumer electronics world, as you know.

However, now that I am a Ford #FiestaMovement agent, you should expect to see something a bit more unique here on my channel each month. I'll be doing some pretty unique missions as part of the Fiesta Movement, using the Fiesta ST that was given to me for the duration of the Movement to bring you some cool stuff. This month? I'm bringing you into the world of professional wrestling as part of the June #Fitness theme.

Why pro wrestling? Well, I didn't want another agent to grab this mission and turn it into a comedy act! I saw this as an opportunity to educate the masses about this truly unique artform. I head to the Buddy Wayne pro wrestling training facility to chat about what it takes to become a professional wrestler. Buddy should know. After all, at just 5' 6", he has made a career in the land of the giants, having wrestling for both WWE (formerly WWF or the World Wrestling Federation) and WCW (World Championship Wrestling.) In wrestling, you only look as good as your opponent allows you to look, and Buddy was able to make his opponents look great for 12 years.

Unboxing Live 119: HTC First & Facebook Home

In this episode we open up the HTC First smartphone, the first phone to ship with Facebook Home as the default launcher. Facebook Home turns your phone into a device that is hyper connected to Facebook, including lock screen slideshows of recent updates from your friends, and direct access to Facebook and Facebook Messenger from the lock screen as well. The HTC First reminds us of a flatter iPhone 3GS, or to be more current, looks a lot like the leaks of the upcoming budget-friendly iPhone. It originally debuted at $99 with 2-year contract, but now sells for $0.99 instead after lukewarm reception.
