Hooked Up, Without Wires

We got yo Wireless Hookup!

What is the current level of tech in your house right now;  a) You can pop-up your toaster with a button push of your mobile phone Or  b) it smells like burnt toast when you push the power button on your desktop pc.  If you are like most of us, you’re somewhere in between, without the burning.  You probably have your crib setup with a broadband router that you surf on your computer and phone through.  While some techy brothas take that one step further;  networking personal collections of pictures, music and videos to be streamed over that home network to TV’s and stereo systems, or even over the world-wide web and accessed by mobile devices such as phones, laptops and tablets. 

… does it smell like burnt toast when you push the power button on your desktop pc – get your game up!

There are a multitude of units that can perform these duties, however there isn’t quite one that can do it all, and well!  Apple’s Apple TV  would be the choice for any Mac or iDevice aficionado, an absolute no brainer.  The Slingbox  is a very popular device to access ‘your TV’ from anywhere, and Google has now entered the living room dominance war with it’s new Google TV service, that requires a compatible Sony TV  or standalone add on Sony unit. I’m sure you have a gaming console as part of your entertainment system;   All 3 of the top  systems (Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii) can perform various streaming functions and tasks right from it’s current location beside below your TV.

You can set your system in place for as little as $60-$100 for a simple hard drive standalone device.
It’s 2011, you can never leave home without all your media.
