While its controller may have a button layout that only an Atari Jaguar apologist could love (...), Sony's Google TV set itself is still something intriguing, if only because of the missing pieces of the puzzle set to be revealed October 12th. Or now, perhaps, if this Sony Insider leak proves true.

In order to keep things nice and tidy around here, we deliver high-def expansions, market expansions

It's nothing too astonishing in the specs department (300 nits, 60,000:1 contrast, 5ms response time), and the DVI and VGA plugs are rather lonesome without an HDMI or DisplayPort plug to tag along, but we can't fault AOC for the 2436Vw's $220 pricetag. The 49W of power draw in a 24-inch 1080p disp

After missing some great movies last week, for no good reason, we're back. The most exciting new release is easily Tom Cruise's Valkyrie, but Paramount also has an old favorite in Enemy at the Gates -- if you love playing the sniper in FPS games then this is a must see movie. Lionsgate gets ready fo

Screen Grabs chronicles the uses (and misuses) of real-world gadgets in today's movies and TV. Send in your sightings (with screen grab!) to screengrabs at engadget dt com. We'll be honest: we haven't seen 24 for many a season now, but, thanks to a few sweet tips, we decided to take a look at a rec

How did Jack Bauer ever get by without his magical Treo? We figure it must've involved a whole lot more eyeball threatening than he usually manages to cram into a season of 24. Also, according to CollegeHumor's \"unaired 1994 pilot\" episode, it involved a pager and some really bad early 90's hair. C

Dubbed the \"first interactive bar in the world,\" each wall will be lined in blank canvas so that projections can be beamed out

What we're watching: Two hours of 24 pretty much ensures a rise in a Jack Bauer kill count that, quite frankly, has been disappointingly low as of late. Still, the 131st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is coming on Universal HD and we wouldn't miss that for the world. Decisions, decisions.Our tradi

What we're watching: 24 or Heroes? Many are debating that question tonight as each has a new episode airing at 9 p.m., not to mention fellow returnees Studio 60 and Prison Break. Luckily we came prepared with dual tuner DVRs, but for those who must choose only one, we hope you find solace in the kno

What we're watching: The Jack Bauer Power Hour is BACK. 24 on Fox is the only option for HDTV viewing pleasure tonight. Not that we wouldn't like to check out the season premiere of Rome on HBO, or the first live high definition game from Hawaii, the Hula Bowl on ESPN-HD. We'd tell you more but we d

We love HD shows that go the extra mile to take advantage of HDTVs (My Name is Earl, The Office), or just have special effects and environments that look great in HD (24, Lost). At last night's 58th Emmy Awards Lost and Grey's Anatomy were shut out but all the others listed previously took home stat
