Watch Live TV on your PSP

by Al


I wanted a PSP (PlayStation Portable) before and after reading a press release from Sony I now want one even more (shame I’m a bit skint). Sony announced today that the PSP firmware version 2.5 includes Locationfree application support . Locationfree has been around for a while now (though hasn’t really taken off that much in the UK yet) and allows you to control, listen to and watch your media …

This is a very nice idea that was promised long ago but has taken many years to materialise. Devolo have launched a range of products that will give you an ethernet network in your house by using your mains wiring to carry the data around.

by Al

iZ Musical Dancer

As you can probably tell by the picture this is one strange gadget, if we had to guess what it was just by looking at it we’d also struggle.

You can connect it to your favourite music player using …

New squeezebox from SlimDevices

by Marc

Squeezebox v3

I’ve long been a fan of SlimDevices and their Squeezebox line of networked audio streamers. I’ve been using them for years and although they are more expensive than the competition the quality of the package (hardware, software and community/support) can’t be beaten. What do they do?

Naim home cinema in a box

I like Naim. They’re a uniquely British hi-fi company who insist on doing things their way because they claim it’s better.

Pepper pad

If there was ever “One gadget to bind them” this might well be it. A tablet PC with a decent screen (8.4″), browser, email client, movie and video players etc plus WiFi, bluetooth AND to top it all an infra red blaster that can be programmed as a learning remote. It looks like it’s got a small but useable keyboard over on the left panel with a number pad on …
