    Are you sure it isn't 'leading edge'?

    End every sentence with the correct punctuation mark. Always capitalise 'I'.

    Where did you hear or read 'bleeding edge'?

    It describes a technology that is so modern that it is still being developed.
    You can think of it as a concept product.

    And cutting often leads to bleeding.

    You can get hurt on the leading edge, hence "bleeding" edge.

    Yes, been there, done that. You buy the latest leading edge technology, only to discover that it does not yet work flawlessly.
