Lifeforce might not be the perfect movie to watch on Thanksgiving with your family, but hey, it looks fabulous in HD. Still own the DVD? Well, finally, you can put it to rest and watch it for the first time on Blu-ray.

Prince Of Darkness
October 24, 2013; 10:02pm PST
Time to retire that DVD (and maybe even VHS) copy of Prince Of Darkness because it has finally been transferred faithfully to high definition. Ever ask yourself how that green canister would look on an HDTV? Well, it looks amazing! Shout! Factory has included extras on this Blu-ray release to make this film a true Collector's Edition.

The Complete First Season
February 16, 2013; 7:00pm PST
In case you haven't heard, Homeland is a series which will keep you in suspense from the first episode, and turn the characters into people you feel you actually know. Rarely does a series do this, which is why you're seeing the review here.

Accelero XTREME Plus II
by Arctic Cooling
October 21, 2012; 12:46pm PST
The Accelero XTREME Plus II has been around for a while, but it's one hell of a cooler — and it works. DigitalDingus installed one of these on an XFX ATI HD 6970 2GB graphics card. How much of a difference than stock does the Accelero XP2 bring to the Cooling Table? You gotta read this.

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
Megatron Special Edition
October 1, 2012; 8:58pm PST
Michael Bay brings us Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, and with this UK import, on a single Blu-ray disc by itself — no special features or extras. But this can be a good thing. With the Megatron transforming figure included, who needs extras. Prepare to be amazed.

The Walking Dead: Season Two
September 7, 2012; 9:51pm PST
DigitalDingus is back from the dead, and so I thought the first review should be something fitting. How about The Walking Dead: Season Two with a special edition gross Zombie head?

A rather interesting documentary by Scott Crocker has crossed my desk. I decided to review it. Ghost Bird tells the story of a once-thought extinct bird who resurfaces in the swamps of Arkansas. But is this the ivory-billed woodpecker?

June 20, 2010; 8:30pm PST
Antennas Direct has produced their first indoor HD antenna, and I have to say already--it works. Be sure to checkout the review of the CSM1, which is compact, slim, sleak, and should be an addition to anyone's HDTV setup.

The iBlink Earphones could be a rather inexpensive way to solve two problems for those who are going to be outdoors at night. Listening to your favorite tunes and making sure you're seen. The iBlink Earphones are charged by a convenient USB cable and come with additional gel inserts to fit bigger ears and smaller ones as well.

The Silence Of The Lambs
May 22, 2009; 11:27pm PST
Some may not remember, but The Silence Of The Lambs is where the Serial Killer Genre took root and created dozens of subsequent television shows and movies. This is the first time TSOTL is on an HD format and it doesn't look too bad.

Fitbrains.com is a rather interesting and entertaining website which is designed to make you think. Yes, I know, this is odd for an internet website to actually make you think, but they are out there, and DigitalDingus came across this one. If you're looking for some brain stimulation, take a look at this website.
Kung Fu Panda Blu-Ray
April 5, 2009; 10:55pm PST
Jack Black is Po, a misunderstood panda, in a rather funny animated movie, Kung Fu Panda. Po has dreams of becoming a Dragon Warrior, but there is danger lurking in the near future, and it is up to Po to find strength to protect a village from certain harm.

HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer
April 1, 2009; 7:12pm PST
DigitalDingus has been absent over the last several months, and much of the reason for it, is changing my lifestyle. Losing weight is a difficult task, not only because it requires coming face to face with your addictive eating behaviors, but it's also frustrating to track progress. Omron's HJ-720ITC Pocket Pedometer is designed for simple use, where you enter in a minimal amount of information. The HJ-720ITC then tracks your steps, to be later viewed on a nice graphical interface, revealing calories burned, fat burned, distance, and more.

|Samsung 830 64GB SSD Review Coming...|
November 16, 2012; 2:41pm PST
A Samsung 830 Series 64GB SSD (MZ-7PC064D/AM) is headed my direction shortly, and I will be using it, reviewing it, and have the review as a continuing process, so the life of the drive and any comments will be seen as time goes on. Samsung's 840 Series is already available, but I haven't particularly seen much of a difference to justify the price of the latest model vs. the 830. However, the 840 Pro Series looks rather fabulous if you can justify the price. In any case, SSD drives are becoming more affordable, and can be especially useful to those who don't want to completely build a new computer system in order to improve performance.
Can a person fork-out ~$100 to see a performance boost? We'll see...

Update: Review is now available:

Alien Skin Software has a new application which might just save you tens thousands of dollars--yeah, read that again. Bokeh is Alien Skin's latest result of a highly talented engineering staff who has tested several actual prime lenses from Canon, Nikon, and Zeiss, and infused their characteristics into one software application to give you the same out-of-focus results. In addition, you can infinitely adjust the focus areas, giving you even more control over what a natural prime lens would offer.

Auto FX has released a highly-awaited update to Photo/Graphic Edges. PGE 7.0 Platinum Edition is now available and features over 1,000 new additions to the overall application.

January 10, 2009; 7:33pm PST
It's coming up for Lonesome Dove, and finally, it is in HD. Is it worth it? Well, yes it is. However, there is some controversy over the cropping which has been done to some scenes. DigitalDingus will show comparisons in this review, providing more insight into just what is going on. But regardless of the critics who complain about the cropping, this new 16x9 (1.78:1) aspect ratio in HD looks darn good.

Christmas Vacation HD DVD
December 28, 2008; 11:25pm PST
Clark Griswold wants this Christmas to be the best ever, and nothing is going to break the tradition of a Griswold Christmas. Of course, finding out both sides of the family's parents are going to stay which is going to lead to outright WWIII, putting up 25,000 lights, and staying calm while a SWAT team is breaking through every window and door in the house, isn't going to be easy. Did I mention $7500 of the family savings was put down for a family pool on a guaranteed Christmas bonus which hasn't come yet?
