HD Media Player From Western Digital

Western Digital released a hard drive compliment to their USB Passport hard drive, the WD TV HD Media Player.  What they’ve done is develop a high resolution real time streaming device capable of recording up to 1080p to your USB hard drive or super sized USB stick.

It’s clear to me Western Digital will begin developing products to complement or enhance the need of their core business products – hard drives and storage. The WD TV HD Media Player has a memory buffer inside but uses two USB ports on the backside where you can plug in USB sticks or USB hard drives, like the Passport, to store the digital stream.

Century is coming out with a mini LCD screen for your laptop which is powered via USB.  The hand-held size screen is ideal for users with a laptop and don’t have the horse power to run a second screen or don’t have the space.

The LCD-4300U seems to be the perfect companion for running Instant Message or maybe Toolboxes for your Photoshop program.  Resolution is up to 800×480 with a total width of 4.3″ And if for some odd reason you fall in love with these little monitors you can daisy-chain up to 7 of them from your PC. The concept is great, but the problem I have with this is the cost.  Starting street price this November will be around 195USD.  I can get a 19″ flat screen for less then that…but sometimes you have to pay the price for the small size.

It will be interesting to see how small these units are, what kind of power they will draw from either you cell phone or power plug and what kind of clarity will be displayed.  TI did mention DLP technology for some models which would resolve any concerns for clarity and quality.  TI also mentioned by year 2010 the cell phone projector business could be as popular as camera phones.

VGA, DVI and HDMI to USB Trifecta Power House Adapter

On the heels of announcing the EVGA USB to VGA or DVI adapter comes USB Fever with their power house trifecta USB to VGA, DVI and HDMI adapter.  I believe it’s the first USB video adapter with these three options. So with the news of USB Fevers multi-display adapter we can revisit the idea of boosting your video space.  For me, this product is of special interest as I’m currently running a 19″ wide screen off my laptop dock station.  Unfortunately the laptop doesn’t have enough video processing to push two monitors.  The USB Fever multi-display USB adapter solves this problem.

It appears EVGA has an edge on higher end resolution, but the USB Fever will still get you a max 1400×1050 resolution.  This is ideal for 19″ wide screens.  The VGA, DVI and HDMI video adapter can string up to 6 monitors together and will work through powered USB hubs.  I would venture to say this solution isn’t ideal for hi-end graphics applications like 3D modeling or gaming, but would be a good product for use of viewing spreadsheets, email, word processing, web surfing, blogging, Photoshop and TV.

Myka: BitTorrent Set Top Box Is King Of The Hill

Set Top boxes have a big limitation in that you get Pigeon Holed into one device such as AppleTV or the forthcoming NetFlix unit, but the Myka could change the landscape forever.  The Myka is a BitTorrent device which will work with anything the web has to offer and can download/play MPEG2, H.264, WMV and DivX media.

myka bittorrent

As Wired reports, the Myka is userfriendly because it takes the nerd out of the BitTorrent process.  The Myka is intelligent enough to provide content (legal or otherwise) from a Peer2Peer network without all the advanced skills often required to pull off a BitTorrent download.  The Linux based box is a simple connection to the TV via HDMI, composite (ouch), S-Video or SPDIF and connects to the internet via eithernet or WiFi.  The Myka comes with a variety of internal hard drive configurations (80, 160 or 500GB) and includes an external USB port for additional storage or future connectivity / peripheral options.
“There’s no way the content providers will allow this pirate box on the market, right? Wrong. Myka already has the official BitTorrent service on board, which means it will carry legitimate content from 20th Century Fox, MTV, Warner and Playboy, amongst others.”
Wired posted a full interview with Myka’s president Dan Lovy, so if you’d like to learn more about the Myka set top box which will rule them all, jump. Continue Reading
