Boxee Box is Coming!

Boxee BoxOh yes. if you are at all familiar with streaming media over the network from Hulu or Netflix you are gonna love this. Up until now Boxee.tv had just a small download that turned your PC or Mac or even Apple TV into a streamin media magnet. But in Quarter 2 of 2010 Boxee will be unveiling the Boxee Box the single most coolest hardware device since the Roku was made available to the masses a few years ago. I loved my Roku and i still have it and use it today. Boxee box seems to take it to the next level though. Here are the basic specs:

  • HDMI
  • Optical Audio
  • RCA Stereo Audio
  • WiFi (802.11n)
  • Ethernet
  • 2 USB Ports
  • SD Card Slot
  • RF Remote
  • QWERTY Keyboard

The remote with the QWERTY keyboard built in really is cool and the design of the Boxee Box is slick as well. If I can get my hands on a demo model for review I will definitely let you all know what I think. Until that happens we all have to wait for a few more months before we can buy one. No price as far as I can see has been decided on for the Boxee Box. I sure hope its as affordable as it is awesome looking.

TheIndie.biz Launches Frindie, A Social Music Application for everyone

theindie.biz FrindieTheIndie.biz Launched a new Social media experience that will allow you to enhance your music listening by finding out what their friends on major social media networks are listening to or buying to listen to. Facebook,Google,Myspace and Twitter are all covered a well as Yahoo, Bebo and Friendfeed.  The Frindie application is a tool that hooks into these social media avenues and will allow with just one click of a button the ability to view how many and of which of their friends listened to, bought, shared etc.. a particular song.  This spin on this one is that its not a bunch of strangers telling you what they like this is your friends that are letting you into the inside scoop on their listening habits, likes and dislikes.  The cool thing with Frindie is that it allows bands as well as fans to fully maximize the social networking experience. This tool will help people find new and interesting music to listen to. What better way to find music you will like and the likelihood of music you will like if you are getting those listening recommendations from your own circle of friends? I would say you are looking at a definitely cool new tool for finding and expanding your current music likes.  On top of all this sharing Frindie will also let you search for music based on the standard Categories and Groups  as well. Maybe, you will even make some new musical friends along the way and that is never a bad thing. To quote the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation “Share and Enjoy!”.

TatMash.com Allows you to try out the Tat before you buy the ink.

tatmash.comSo, here is an interesting concept.  You think to yourself, man I wish I had a cool Tattoo but what shoudl I get? and If I do choose that  twelve in tall papa Smurf on my chest, what will it really look like? Well, now you can get the ink with no remorse and no retribution from friends by heading over to Tatmash.com. Tatmash.com now has an online tool that will allow you to pick a spot that you would like to have a tattoo on and then choose from a multitude of designs to apply to the area.  All this can be done with no needles no ink and a lot less alcohol, ok well you can still have the alcohol but in the end when you wake up the next day instead of a regret you will have a cool picture of you sporting a tattoo that you luckily didn’t get.  For the rest of you TatMash.com is a great way to plan ahead for your next design. figure out if things look good before you go to the artist and even print out your thoughts to take with you to the shop. All in all its a very cool idea and definitely made me ask “Why didn’t I think of that?!?”. So check out Tatmash.com and give yourself and your loved ones some ink!.

Ok, now back to the show!

CES is here the Consumer Electronics Show is THE place to see and bee seen by every manner of geek and gadget guy and girl out there. I unfortunately could not get out there this year and it seems like I missed a lot.  Due to some unfortunate circumstances one being CES, all my reviews were stopped as the people I was working with in PR departments across the globe are suggley warm in the warm glow of giant LED TV’s or immersed in 3D HDTV… sigh. I really am sorry i could not make it out there.

So, I have been wathing lots of news come flying in and grabbed a few tidbits to listen to.

Nexus One from Google. so, the actual device itself is pretty darned cool over all. A local friend of mine picked one up and gave me a run down as well as a looksee and I have to say the screen is fantastic! some of the integration like multi touch or apps can use some work but the nice thing about the phone is that all the little fiddly bits i coudl fault it on can all be fixed with some software updates.

And speaking of getting a Nexus One ( I know… horrible segue)… Boy Genius is giving one away Free and unlocked! here is what they have to say over at BGR

Lastly I am a movie buff and if you have seen my tweets I have taken pics of my Home theater in my basement a few times so far. so I had to talk a bit about these new pico projectors from FAVI

FAVI projectors

So I talk a bit about these ultra cool and Ultra small projectors.  you can read more about them at an article at Engadget here http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/10/favi-rioled-q-and-rioled-v-pico-projectors-launched-the-future/ I had found the original article at Gizmodo but for some reason the article page is throwing an error. Engadget has some pics and info on the RIOLED-Q and RIOLOED-V pico projectors and their specifications.

and that Wraps it up for Episode 50. I hope to have the green light for uploading the Vtech IS9181 this week which will go into Episode 51 next week. Hope you all have a Gadgety good week. see you in Seven!
