Samsung Reveals the nHD Galaxy Beam Projector Phone
You can find countless phones these days that allow you to connect up to an HD display thanks to MHL or mini HDMI connectors, but the upcoming Galaxy Beam from Samsung acts as its own display thanks to a built-in projector.  It's not going to replace a Sim2 or Runco of course, but it beats just about anything out there in terms of portability.

'Indiana Jones' is Coming to Blu-ray This Fall
Practically everyone that watches Blu-ray movies has a wishlist of the titles they'd like to see finally come out, and you'll find Spielberg's blockbusters on most of those list.

Patent Reveals that Google TV Voice Control is in the Works
If you're rocking an Android phone and a Google TV you may be in luck.  There's an app in the works that would allow you to control your Google TV with your voice.  The app will utilize the phone for capturing the commands and display the results on your TV using information like the time, date and your GPS data.  If you ask "When's the game on?" for example, you'll get results for local teams.  It's a pretty slick setup.
