Starting last year with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung came out swinging in the industrial design department. Gone were the super plasticky smartphones that felt cheap in the hand, and in its place we got metal and glass smartphones that were a sight to behold. Now, the company has launched the follow-ups, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash features an exclusive limited edition Chibi-Robo Amiibo! I bring you an up-close look at the Chibi-Robo Amiibo, as well as the Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash game, which is out now for the Nintendo 3DS family of handheld game consoles.
Chibi-Robo Zip Lash is a new adventure for the power-challenged robot. A fun platformer through and through, Chibi-Robo uses his power cord to gain energy, whiplash enemies, and interact with the game environment. The amiibo unlocks Super Chibi Robo, and can even be used in other supported games as well!

Eero is a new player in the home Wi-Fi space, and the company claims that its Home Wi-Fi System can put an end to those Wi-Fi dead zones for good. In the box you'll find three Eero units, one of which needs to be plugged directly into your main router using the included Ethernet cable. Two more units simply need to be plugged into wall power in order portions of your home. The three Eero devices then essentially team up to create one mesh Wi-Fi network in your home that is broadcasted from those three locations, eliminating areas that would otherwise have a weak (or non-existent) Wi-Fi signal. In this episode I open up the Eero Home Wi-Fi System and give you a closer look at the hardware.

Nintendo sent me an early copy of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD bundle, which includes the exclusive Wolf Link amiibo. In this episode, I open up the Twilight Princess bundle, and give you an up-close look at the unique Wolf Link amiibo figure. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a Wii U remake of the Nintendo GameCube and Wii game, Twilight Princess. It's the second remaster of a Zelda title on the Wii U, following The Wind Waker HD.
Twilight Princess HD features reworked graphics with primarily new textures, giving the game a cleaner look and feel. The original had just a 480p resolution on both the GameCube and Wii, Twilight Princess HD instead has a 1080p resolution, resulting in additional clarity, especially for faraway objects and precise aiming. Most textures in the game are touched up with added details, with notable examples including Link's hair, Zant's armor, and several background textures.
Star Wars Battlefront PS4 Limited Edition console unboxing! This isn't our typical unboxing where I explain the product in detail, unfortunately, as we had a mishap early on in the video that I needed to take care of, as you'll see. Still, Darth Vader shines here in all his glory, emblazoned across the box of the limited edition Playstation 4, as well as right on the PS4 console itself. The bundle also includes a custom Star Wars PS4 controller which you won't find anywhere else, as well as a hard copy of Star Wars: Battlefront.
- Star Wars Battlefront Deluxe
- Star Wars Battlefront Standard
- Star Wars Battlefront standard bundle
- Star Wars X-Wing Pilot Headset
- Darth Vader Headset

The Philips Hue Go personal wireless light might be the coolest lighting accessory I've ever used. As you can see in the video, it looks like a cereal bowl that's been filled with light that you can carry around with you. You can turn on the natural dynamic effects feature for a living light color show, or set it to one of 16 million different colors of light with a 300 lumen light output. It's controllable with the Hue Light app for iOS and Android, but also has a button on the back that allows you to cycle through a bunch of different colors without the need for a smartphone or tablet.
The only downside is that you do need to have a Philips Hue Starter Kit or Hue Bridge in order to use it to its full potential, so if you don't already have a Hue system set up, that will set you back an extra $50 or so. Still, it's a great lighting accessory.
You can pick up the Philips Hue Go now!
Apple has released the epic new iPad Pro, and in this episode I give you a first look at the large iOS device. As you'll see, the iPad Pro sports a huge (by tablet standards) 12.9-inch Retina display. On the outside, it looks just like another other current-generation iPad, just bigger. On the inside though, there's a lot more power. It's the first iOS device to ship with 4GB, and paired with Apple's A9X processor, this thing is fast. It amounts to an iOS experience that is smooth and fluid, doing everything from navigating the home screen, opening apps, multitasking, and even editing video a breeze. The massive screen immerses you into its world - I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's true. Open up a high-resolution image, video, or game, and you are brought into that place.
You can pick up the iPad Pro for $799 for the 32GB mode, $949 for 128GB, and $1079 for the 128GB model with LTE support. Must-have accessories include the Apple Pencil, and the iPad Pro Keyboard, which connects via the new Smart Connector. Check out the video for the full rundown!

TiVo is back with an all new DVR: TiVo Bolt! More of a side-grade than an upgrade from the TiVo Roamio Plus and Roamio Pro (see our TiVo Roamio Pro review), the TiVo Bolt is the first TiVo DVR to offer 4K UHD resolution. You can currently stream content from both Netflix and YouTube in 4K, with more to come soon (hopefully Amazon!)
The two other major features of the TiVo Bolt are QuickMode and SkipMode. With SkipMode, TiVo allows you to completely skip over blocks of commercials with the press of a button for prime time shows that air on the top 20 TV networks. QuickMode allows you to speed up your TV watching, playing the content at 1.3x the normal speed. Voices still sound as they should, but the show just plays a little faster, allowing you to get through them quicker.
The shape of the box is a bit odd, and the two-tone black and white remote is a departure as well, but the Bolt is faster and more responsive than any previous model. It can also record up to four shows at once.
You can order the TiVo Bolt now.
I give you a look at the HUGE Halo 5: Guardians Limited Collector's Edition for Xbox One in this episode! The star of this show is the gigantic Master Chief & Spartan Locke statue.
You also get a full Halo 5: Guardians game download, Warzone REQ bundle that includes 14 premium requisition packs, access to Halo: The Fall of Reach animated series, a Guardian model that you build yourself from Metal Earth, Spartan Locke's classified orders, dossiers on Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris, the Spartan SteelBook, and a two week Xbox Live Gold trial.
Seriously. All of that is part of the Limited Collector's Edition for Halo 5. The price comes out to $249.99 for all of it, but is a $189 premium over the standard Halo 5 disc. Is it worth it? The statue is definitely cool, but it's a lot of pay unless you're a hardcore Halo fan.
