Ford Focus Video

The GeekBeat.TV team is excited to be in the running for a trip to Madrid to test drive the tech-packed 2012 Ford Focus! Want to see what’s in the car, and maybe join us there for an awesome meetup? Vote for our video here.

Personalized Toy Figures

Have you ever had the urge to have a little statuette of, well, yourself on your desk? If so, your time has come!

Galaxy Tab

The Galaxy Tab is looking like a pretty good tablet option, particularly for those who want something a bit smaller than an iPad, that can handle Flash, and take photos and video.

Speakal Cool iPig

Is your life nearly complete, but for a pig-shaped iPhone speaker dock? Well, lean back in satisfaction, because the Speakal Cool iPig is here.

Verizon’s 4G LTE

Are you ready for mobile connectivity that will rival what you get out of your Ethernet network? That’s what Verizon is aiming to bring you with their 4G LTE network, with speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G.

ElectroHub Charging Station

We’ve seen charging mats for phones, but the ElectroHub Charging Station promises induction charging for devices that use AA and AAA batteries as well.

Woopra’s Chrome App

Woopra, GeekBeat.TV’s favorite real-time web stats tracker, is now available in the Chrome Web Store. It made ReadWriteWeb’s lists of great web products, so check it out!

Gawker Media Hacked

Over the weekend, Gawker media was hacked and account info for nearly 1.25 million site users was compromised. For the full scoop, check out the coverage on WebBeat.TV #37.

    I enjoyed episode #74 like always, but I have a question about the Verizon 4G you are testing. I am not surprised the bandwidth is as good as you say it is, but I have heard none of the major providers are offering an unlimited data plan with 4G. If this is true, what good is all this bandwidth if you can’t use it? Streaming multiple NetFlix movies will eat up a data plan in a hurry.

    Love the show !!
