Bleeding Edge TV 567: How To Speed Up Xbox One with SSD

I haven't been liking how slow Fallout 4 is on the Xbox One due to massive loading times, and figured I would do something about it. Rather than running Fallout 4 from the internal 5400RPM Xbox One hard drive, or even my external 7200RPM drive, I decided it was time to hook up a solid state SSD to my Xbox One in order to take advantage of the much faster speeds that the technology has to offer.

The problem with SSDs? External SSD drives are expensive. So instead, I made my own. In this video I show you how to make your own external SSD, and in the process, vastly speed up your Xbox One loading times!

Bleeding Edge TV 551: How to Set Up the Apple TV 4th Generation

Apple released the brand new Apple TV 4th generation recently, in both a 32GB and 64GB model. Once you pick it up and get it hooked up, you'll have to go through the setup process. Unfortunately, the on-screen keyboard on the new Apple TV is less than awesome. Luckily, there is a cool shortcut you can use if you own a recent iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Using the Bluetooth connection that is in both the Apple TV and the iOS device, you can use the iOS device to speed up the setup of the Apple TV. In this episode, I use an iPhone 6S Plus to get my Wi-Fi and iCloud credentials onto the 64GB Apple TV, showing you how to get through the process quickly!
