  • Twonky Beam Browser hands-on
    Showing your friends the latest viral video traditionally requires huddling around a smartphone or tablet, which is odd when you’re sat in a room with a 40-inch flat-screen. Web connected TVs or media units like the Apple TV will let you watch YouTube as long as you spend five minutes tediously inputting the search term on your remote. For those of us who can’t afford a unified Airplay setup, there’s PacketVideo’s Twonky Beam Browser, which lets you push mobile content to your TV as fast as your wireless router can handle it. Does it work as well as advertised? Is it the answer to your prayers? Read on to find out, dear reader, read on.

  • Nabaztag robotic rabbits rise from the ashes at midnight
    Twas a sad day when Mindscape was forced to shutter the online service used by its collection of Nabaztag robotic rabbits — as the tale goes, the domain’s demise left the tiny, Linux-running hares inanimate, mute and nearly useless. But just five short months later, things are starting to look up. Via email, the company has confirmed that nabaztag.com will come (back) alive on midnight of December 24th (a timezone was not specified), allowing Nabaztag users to communicate with their coney comrades. “At midnight you can turn your rabbits on without changing anything,” writes the bunny builder. That’s not all. The company is promising to “enrich” the devic’s modules with “community contributions.” If you’re a Nabaztag owner, step away from that eggnog and put on a pot of coffee… Christmas is coming a full 24-hours early.

  • Engadget Primed: ports, connectors and the future of your TV’s backside
    Primed goes in-depth on the technobabble you hear on Engadget every day — we dig deep into each topic’s history and how it benefits our lives. You can follow the series here. Looking to suggest a piece of technology for us to break down? Drop us a line at primed *at* engadget *dawt* com.

    For many among us, what goes on behind and along the sides of a high-definition television is almost as compelling as what’s displayed on that big, beautiful flat screen. Of course, we’re talking connectors, with their attendant chaos of cords. A high-def TV is only as good as its connection to a high-def signal. The same holds true for the array of disc players, game consoles and other peripherals we cluster around our sets. So it may seem quaint, then, that we still often confront more analog ports than digital ones on our high-end TVs. You’d think with advances in wireless technology, we’d have done away with the spider web of wires entirely. Alas, like flying cars and fembots, we’re just not there yet.

    In this installment of Primed, we’ll examine the best and the bogus when it comes to TV connectors, and spend some time tracing the arc of how we got to where we are in this particular moment of television evolution. The narrative on television and home entertainment remains a work in progress. But we’ll endeavor to get you caught up to date, and as an added bonus offer a glimpse of what the future of your TV’s backside will likely look like.
