Bleeding Edge TV 597: HP Pavilion X2 review

The HP Pavilion 12 x2 is the most versatile detachable PC that HP has ever made, and the best budget laptop on the market currently. It's a true 2-in-1 laptop, and allows you to separate the display from the keyboard, giving real tablet and laptop functionality. With it you get a full size keyboard, and the ability to pick from 4 different modes for viewing the display - laptop, tent, tablet, and stand.

The HP Pavilion 12 x2 review also shows how the PC includes all the ports you need, from USB-C, USB 2.0, microSD, and even micro HDMI. The dual front-facing Bang & Olufsen speakers are a rare find on a laptop as well.

Be sure to check out the full HP Pavilion x2 review to find out why this is likely the best budget laptop on the market today!

Unboxing Live 069: Motorola Droid X2 smartphone

We open up the Motorola Droid X2 in this episode of Unboxing Live, giving you a look a the first dual-core Android device available on Verizon Wireless. This is the follow-up to the original Droid X, and maintains the same form factor and physical buttons, as well as the huge display. This one is actually a qHD display, providing a higher resolution than the original Droid X that launched almost a year ago. One thing missing here, the Droid X2 doesn't have 4G LTE built-in, but that's a minor complaint for this otherwise speedy device.

As always, hit us with any questions you have about the Droid X2 and we'll do our best to answer them in our follow-up review! In the meantime, feel free to check out our Motorola Droid X2 gallery.

X-Men 4 and 5: Is That What You Want?

X-Men - Hugh Jackman as WolverineAt least one big screen comic book adaptation is still thriving, no reboots needed. The X-Men movie has already spawned two successful sequels (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand) and two prequels (X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the as-yet-unreleased X-Men: First Class) -- so, how about a few more?

Laura Donner, producer, says that Fox has received a treatment for another installment in the ongoing X-Men saga, and according to sources the idea will lead directly into yet another movie.

If Hugh Jackman is willing to keep putting on the claws, are you ready to keep making trips to movie theaters to watch him?

Eye-Fi Connect X2 review

Eye-Fi Connect X2 reviewWe’ve talked about our love of the line of flash memory cards in the past, and their latest X2 line has just recently hit stores with a bunch of new features. We were able to spend a bit of time with their entry-level device, the Connect X2, to get a look at what their most basic X2 branded model can do. As it turns out, it’s a great card that can do a heck of a lot. Read on to find out how a memory card with built-in WI-Fi can change the way take and share your digital photos.

First, let’s cover the basics. The Eye-Fi Connect X2 is a 4GB SDHC Class 6 flash memory card with Wi-Fi built-in. If you are unfamiliar with Eye-Fi, the whole magic here is in the Wi-Fi, as it opens up possibilities that you just don’t get with other SD cards. The Connect X2 can automatically upload your images and videos to your computer, either to a folder or directly into your image storage program like iPhoto and Picasa. In addition, it can also upload that content to one of more than 25 sites online—places like Flickr, Facebook, YouTube, Picasa, MySpace, and the like.

‘Wolverine’ To Hit Theaters In 2009

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in X-MenFanboys everywhere are squealing with glee as announces that they have set a date for the eagerly awaited and horribly titled X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The film will hit theaters on May 1, 2009 and, of course, star as Marvel’s short-tempered, adamantium-clawed mutant. In addition to release date excitement, Variety reports that is in talks to play a younger version of William Stryker, Wolverine’s nemesis who was played by in X2.

What excites me? Rumors that the film (to be directed by Tsotsi’s Gavin Hood), which will be partially filmed in New Orleans, will include the previously left out X-man, Gambit. If I had a dollar for every playing card I lost/ruined by imitating the cartoon version of the Cajun mutant, I’d be freakin’ rich.

A few other new mutants (as well as returning ones) are expected to make appearances. Fox is also trying to get the origin story of villain Magneto off the ground and into theaters.
