Yes we can't believe it either, but as of today Engadget HD is officially done with the terrible twos. The EHD crew's made us proud ever since their first post 36 months ago by bringing all of you the best HD news coverage they can, and in that time they've written over 11,672 posts and recorded 12

Yes we can't believe it either, but as of today we're officially done with the terrible twos. Although we haven't always made it easy on our parents, we have tried to make them proud since our first post 36 months ago by bringing all of you the best HD news coverage we can. In that time we've writt

Well, the new Engadget isn't the only thing we're unveiling this week. We're very proud to announce the birth of our latest spin-off, Engadget HD, where we'll have obsessive coverage of everything related to high-definition. For Engadget HD we're teaming up with the amazingly talented bloggers of HD

That's right, roughly a year ago this blog kicked off, with posts that looked a lot like the ones we have now. We've decided to celebrate our birthday on July 4th (that's right, we're giving you a day off of work to celebrate HD Beat). It's been a great year of high-def news, from easter eggs to Ent

HD Beat has the scoop on an upcoming 42-inch plasma display from Hitachi that delivers a lot of features for its $2,500 price tag. The 42HDS69 accomplishes a native resolution of 1,080i through a rather strange pixel configuration of 1,024 x 1,080, sports such viewing enhancements as an anti-reflec

But Xbox 360 Fanboy needs your help. For every positive (like the HD Beat flickr group), there is an equal and horrifyingly opposing negative. This weekend they are running a contest to find out who has the most pathetic Xbox 360 gaming setup in all the land, and uh, some of these are pretty patheti

Aside from the setbacks, DRM challenges and lack of titles, we should see a successful launch of HD-DVD and Blu-Ray in the very near future. Ok, maybe "successful" is overly optimistic. "Very near future" leaves some wiggle room too, doesn't it? Maybe we should start over. We sho

What we're watching: March Madness has begun and it's one of the best displays of high-definition television there is. Tune in for tip-offs tonight at 8 p.m. on CBS in 1080i where you'll see games from Greensboro, Jacksonville, Salt Lake City and San Diego. Since we're so early in the tourney, here'

What we're watching: Tonight is sort of up in the air; there's nothing really grabbing our interest. We could really go out on a limb and catch "Tour de Gorge: World Meatball Eating Championship" at 8 p.m. on INHD in 1080i, but that's a bit extreme. "American Idol" loses one of t

What we're watching: Was is just us or did "The Unit" kick some major terrorist tookas last week in the pilot episode? Actually, TVSquad isn't impressed just yet, so let's all give it another chance; tune in to CBS at 9 p.m. to see these characters exude confidence in 1080i. Just so we don

Don't know your IPTV from your AACS or your MPEG-4? No worries; ArsTechnica does the IPTV 101 thing so you can drop high-def acronyms to all of your SD neighbors. Considering that one content provider in China snagged over a half a million IPTV subscribers in Hong Kong alone, you probably want to br

Ah, there's nothing like CeBit rumors, unless you don't speak German, that is. Thankfully, some folks are ever-so-helpful by sharing the juicy (yet ambiguous) news bits with us. This vague rumor may actually have some merit, however. It wasn't too long ago that LG allegedly scrapped plans for their

Echostar continues the DISH Network rollout of high-def locals by adding ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC in HD to Kansas City. Over twenty-two counties fall within the limits of the new offering, which we weren't expecting since DIRECTV is "it" in the continuing game of HD Locals Tag. Looks like Ec

What we're watching: She'll always be Elaine Bennis Benes to us, but tonight Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as the old new character on "The New Adventures of the Old Christine". The CBS premiere fires up at 8:30 p.m. with a new follow-up episode at 9:30 p.m. in 1080i. Actually, the premiere ha

What we're watching: Yo buddy. Whatsamatta you? You been missin' "The Sopranos", ain't ya? Whaddya mean, what's "The Sopranos"? Don't gimme that dumb look or I might have to tell Big Tony you just said that. You just do yourself a favor and sit yourself down at 9 p.m. tonigh

What we're watching: It's Friday night movie night with at least two good choices. "Saving Private Ryan" fires off at 8 p.m. on TNT-HD in 1080i. For those that missed "Caddyshack" in 1080i a week ago, you all get a second chance tonight at 10:15 on HDNet Movies. Last but not leak

Ben still won't shut up about his MacBook Pro, we both agree on Plasma vs LCD and are disappointed that SED will be delayed even futher. HD-DVD vs Blu-Ray really starts to heat up with lots of news and Ben provides his impressions of the HD-DVD road show and will also get a chance to test MovieBeam

CeBit is great for product announcements, but this one is slightly underwhelming. While the big boys are building 100-inch LCD screens, Sharp adds to their AQUOS line with the LC-37GE1E, a 37-incher. The big claim to fame for the new AQUOS is full 1920 x 1080 resolution in a progressive format, not

What we're watching: It's a bizarre twist on CSI tonight as there's a dose of reality television in the mix. Tune in at 9 p.m. on CBS as the crew tracks down a rapist who posed as a fireman to sadly put out his own sexual fire unlawfully. Here's the twist in 1080i: the CSI crew is followed by a real

Yesterday's TiVo conference call shared some interesting details but kept others in hiding. Lifetime service goes away as an option and TiVo is going with a subscription-based model on the Series 2 boxes. Depending on your commitment of one, two or three years, your monthly TiVo service and the hard
