Being an early adopter is a thankless job.  Sure you get all the cool gadgets long before anybody else, but you have to deal with less than ready versions of hardware and software and paying significantly more than those that wait.  Sometimes, though, it pays off.

The folks over at Emotiva have revealed a trio of new audio amplifiers, including two made for those with a smaller budgets.  The UPA-200 and UPA-500 come in at $350 and $399 respectively.  The 200 is a two channel amp made to be paired up with an existing 5.1 channel amp for those that want to expand to 7.1 sound.  The UPA-500 gives you five channels and includes a toroidal transformer, flat frequency response and a low distortion rate.

We’re not willing to call off the search yet, but we may have found the single dumbest feature ever to be listed on the back on an HDMI cable box – anti-virus protection.  That’s right, according to the back of the box for an HDMI cable marketed towards Xbox 360 owners, it has “anti-virus protection to reduce virus noises.”  Yeah.  Not only is it absolutely ridiculous to think that viruses are travelling through your HDMI cables, but game consoles don’t get viruses.  It’s a double whammy of dumb.

Korean home theater fanatics get one hell of a set next month, courtesy of LG.  For around the equivalent of $22,000, they'll be able to get equipped with an 84" LCD with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160.  Assuming you've got a 4K source, that's one impressive set.

50 years after it hit theaters for the first time, 'Lawrence of Arabia' is coming back.  On October 4th, a digitally-restored 4K resolution version of the movie will be playing in theaters across the country.  It's the director's cut too – a nice treat for fans.  If you don't make it out to a screening though, you still have a few ways to watch it at home.

The Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy announced today that they've selected LG to lead the way in creating a flexible OLED screen for manufacture by 2017.  Initially the screen will be used for commercial purposes, but there's no telling what kind of applications we'll see for consumers.  A fully OLED wrapped cell phone?  Projector style OLED displays that roll up when not in use?  There are a lot of possibilities here.

If you really want to see 'The Dark Knight Rises' the way it was intended to be seen – and we're guessing that many of you do – you can't just go to any movie theater.  Nearly one hour of the film was shot in IMAX 15-perf 70mm film, which means an IMAX theater is the place to be.  And not one of those phony IMAX theaters that have been cropping up in multiplexes – you need the full 70mm experience with the exceedingly large screen.  Here's where you can see it:
