Next Stop: Boston

2010 has been a great year so far. It has given us the World Cup, inception cat, and jeggings are coming back in style. We have also had the opportunity to meet a lot of awesome DivX users during the gdgt live tour. Next week, the tour will continue in Beantown, USA and we will be there with a couple of our favorite DivX Certified Devices. If you live in or around Boston and you love gadgets, you will not want to miss this event.

Did we mention that we will also be giving away Seagate’s new DivX Certified FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media Player, and a DivX Certified Philips Blu-ray player? We’re pretty sure we just did.

Let the Tablet Wars Begin

Heads up Apple, there’s a newer, smaller (and DivX Certified) tablet in town. Last week Samsung announced their new GALAXY Tab, and the web has been buzzing about it ever since. The tablet boasts a variety of awesome features, but our favorite would have to be that it guarantees DivX playback up to 720p HD (perhaps we are a bit biased). This miniature powerhouse also has a 7-inch touch screen, Flash 10.1, a 1GHz processor, and ships with Android™ 2.2 (froyo).

There has been a plethora (BAM! Scrabble score of 13) of stories and articles, but we decided to pick out a few of our favorites to list below after the break. More…

Samsung Galaxy S Preview

A short while ago, a new DivX 720p HD certified Galaxy S phone from Samsung found its way in to the DivX headquarters. Ever since it arrived it has been passed around from employee to employee. Everyone has read the hype around this phone and wants their own chance to see it for themselves. I was finally able to track it down and hold on to it long enough to do a quick video preview of this phone. After having a little bit of time to play around with this phone, I have to say: its pretty sweet. I love the super AMOLED screen (and I am a huge Android™ fan). DivX 720p videos on this phone look stunning. Check out the full video preview after the break: More…

A Recap of gdgt Live in Chicago

This was the 2nd stop on the gdgt live tour 2010. The tour kicked-off in Austin, TX during SXSW and this time we were headed to Chicago, IL. Hundreds of tech enthusiasts came out on a rainy night to check out the latest gadgets. DivX showed off some new devices that play DivX video, including the recently launched 1 TB Iomega Director multimedia hard drive and the LG Arena mobile phone. Attendees also had a chance to demo one of the first DivX Plus HD devices that play back MKV video (the Philips Blu-ray player BDP 5100).

We had a great time hanging out with all the DivX users that came by our booth to catch up on everything DivX. There are three more stops left on the gdgt live tour 2010. In July, we will be in Seattle, so if you are in the area, make sure to check back to get all the details.

Check out some photos and a video recap of the event after the break. More…

DivX is Headed to Chicago for the Next gdgt Live Event

A while back, DivX sponsored the gdgt live event in Austin, TX during SXSW 2010. We handed out t-shirts, showed off some of the latest DivX Certified gadgets, and met a lot of awesome DivX enthusiasts. We had so much fun that we are attending and sponsoring the next event in Chicago. If you live in the Chicago area (or you are close enough to drive there), then head on over to the Gallery 2433 on May 12th.

DivX will be there with the latest DivX gadgets, including a DivX Plus HD Blu-ray player from Philips that plays MKV files. We will also be showing people how quick and easy it is to transfer your Internet movies to any DivX Certified device with the new DivX Plus Player. Did we mention we’ll have DivX t-shirts and free DivX Pro Software? You can find all of the details and a map of the location after the break. More…

Introducing the All New DivX Plus Software

In January, we announced our plans to bring DivX TV to consumer electronic devices. As cool as DivX TV is however, it isn’t the only project we have been working on. For the past year, we have also been working hard on the latest version of DivX Software. We have redesigned our bundle from the ground up to include more features, a new interface, and a simpler method for transferring videos to your DivX Certified devices. We call it DivX Plus Software.

Check out some of the new features that we are including in this new bundle after the break: More…

Meet Up with DivX and gdgt at the gdgt Live Event in Austin, TX

If you happen to be cool enough to live in Austin, Texas, or even if you’re just cool enough to travel there for SXSW, make sure you head over to the Austin Music Hall on the evening of March 15th, when gdgt.com is hosting a live event sponsored by DivX.

DivX folks will be at the event giving product demos and showing off some of the latest DivX Certified gadgets. We will also be giving away our new software and handing out t-shirts and coupon cards for DivX movies–while supplies last, of course.

Buddy Cop Films

Warner Bro’s latest movie “Cop Out” is hitting theaters today (Feb 26th). This film is about two NYPD partners played by badass Bruce Willis and not-so-badass Tracy Morgan. The unlikely combination of these two “partners against crime” sets this movie up to be a perfect addition to a long line of buddy cop movies.

The entire movie is a throwback and a tribute to many of the great buddy cop films that pioneered the genre. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorites that you can download and purchase right now in DivX format. Before you watch “Cop Out” in the theaters, get in the mood by watching one of your favorite buddy cop dramas…or maybe you’ll find that we listed a few you’ve never watched before.
