Turn your HDTV into an iPad! The Popbox from Syabas has been released, but is it ready for primetime? Pro Moving Tips for your HDTV! And the new Blu-ray releases for July 27th, 2010
You can expect your next to to have 3D enabled, because 3D will soon be just another feature that you can choose to use or not. And prices are dropping! Samsung just announced a new 50" 3D plasma for less $1,000 - but, it's only 720p and doesn't include 3D glasses. There's a new form of DRM management in town, and it's called UltraViolet. You'll be able to stream or download the movie you've bought from any device with an internet connection (as long as it's not Apple), but won't get a physical copy. You may not be thrilled with the idea, but PCWorld has a few ideas of their own that could improve the system. And if you're looking for a way to spruce up that old TV, just turn it into an iPad! Watch the video for all the latest in this week's HD news.

The Popbox from Syabas has arrived! Unfortunately, the firmware wasn't quite ready for the release, and created more than a few bricks. The hardware, though, is nice and sleek, and 1080p Blu-ray rips look great, it supports a bundle of formats, and is expandable via apps, which include Revision3, but not Netflix. Watch the video to find out if it's worth early adopting this new toy, or if you should wait for the bugs to work themselves out first.

We've gotten hands-on with Panasonic's 3D-enabled VT25, and man does it look pretty! The Infinite Black Panel Pro feature reduces reflection and provides amazing black levels. The THX mode means excellent picture quality right out of the box, but the calibration controls provides advanced settings letting you fine-tune your picture just the way you want it. Watch the video to find out if this could be your next home theater companion.
Along with the 3D HDTV, we needed a 3D-enabled Blu-ray player, so we had a good look at Panasonic's DMP-BDT300. It provides great picture control and video output options, including 2 HDMI ports. It's also equipped with VIERA Cast, allowing you to access YouTube, Netflix, and more, right from your player. Watch the video for all the details on the next generation of media players!

Can't get enough Starbuck and Adama? There are two different Battlestar Galactica box sets available, so which one should I choose? The one with the Cylon figurine is limited edition only, while the second has more shelf-friendly packaging. Both have the same content, though, so whichever one you can get your hands on should scratch your BSG itch.
