Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2010

You knew that Google was looking to take over your living room at some point and the NYTimes has the details on Google TV, a platform to deliver web content to Android-based set-top boxes and TVs through partnerships with Sony, Intel, and Logitech.

Google hopes that the platform can succeed where many others have failed to seamlessly integrate web content onto TVs, bringing services like Twitter and sites like YouTube, and of course games, webapps, and more.

Nanobrick’s Miyoul Media Frames store photos on individual OLED screens

Posted in Digital Photo Frames by Conner Flynn on January 13th, 2010

Forget regular old Digital Picture Frames. Nanobrick has created 11 media frame models that you can customize with your photos. Each of them has several OLED screens that measure either 3.3-inches or 4.1-inches.

Problem is that each model costs around $100,000. It would be cheaper to make one yourself. If you can afford one maybe you can display pictures of money burning and people getting hit in the nads with baseballs, because that’s how you will feel after your purchase.

USB Inserts for advertising

Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2009

USB Inserts for advertisingThis is either a great idea or a bad idea. It’s hard to say which. That depends on how you feel about being assaulted by these when you open a magazine and find one of these paper-thin USB key ads. Mind you, that’s along with those paper re-subscribe slips and perfume pages.

But it is a neat concept. They can be made to order, are super slim, and can fit in small places. But chances are you won’t be interested enough in any ad content to actually load up what’s on it. At least I wouldn’t be motivated.

Boxee Box coming soon

Posted in Set Top Boxes by Conner Flynn on November 12th, 2009

Boxee Box coming soonBoxee is coming. And I don’t mean that kind from the original Battlestar Galactica. I mean the home theater PC software that makes watching streaming downloaded media on your TV easy. Mac Mini fans like it since it can be installed right on top of OS X. That’s because you need a computer in your living room to run it.

But it won’t be that way forever. Boxee just announced a deal with a hardware partner to release a Boxee Box for your living room sometime next year. So instead of buying a computer just for the Boxee, you’ll have a device designed specifically for your Boxee-related home theater use.

Cisco’s FlipShareTV

Posted in Cisco by Conner Flynn on October 30th, 2009

Cisco's FlipShareTVCisco just announced FlipShareTV, although we don’t have some very important info, like the release date and pricing information. All we have is a brief explanation of how it works. Apparently previously recorded video, accessed on a computer via FlipShare software, is then wirelessly streamed with the FlipShareTV USB stick to the small FlipShareTV box and controlled via remote.

It’s odd because it uses these three items to perform a somewhat basic task by today’s standards. There may be more to this device, but if there is they aren’t sharing.

Netgear Digital Entertainer Live Streams PC Media to your TV

Posted in Netgear by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2009

Netgear Digital Entertainer Live Streams PC Media to your TVNetgear’s Digital Entertainer EVA2000 is perfect for those who don’t have a home theater PC or a networked console. The device will stream all of your PC media onto your TV. It connects to the TV via HDMI/composite and to your router via ethernet and it will stream a bunch of codecs from your PC or networked storage, as well as load media from a USB drive or stream YouTube from the web.

There is a catch of course. You need to purchase PlayOn for $40 if you want to stream video services like Hulu, Netflix and CBS from a computer. That takes the price from $150 for the Netgear Digital Entertainer up to $190.

Posted in LaCie by Conner Flynn on November 17th, 2008

LaCie’s LaCinema Rugged HDDLaCie’s LaCinema Rugged was announced late last month for those across the ocean, which left us Americans wondering if we would ever get to see it here in the US. Sure enough, here it is, in time for the holidays. LaCie has announced US pricing and availability for the bulked up multimedia drive, and you can get one right now starting at $199.99.

Sizes include 250GB, 320GB and 500GB. It’s rugged in name and rubberized build. Great for the media enthusiast who plans to throw their gear around the room and do all kinds of crazy “Will it still work” tests.
