Turn a Raspberry Pi Into an AirPlay Receiver for Streaming Music in Your Living Room

Turn a Raspberry Pi Into an AirPlay Receiver for Streaming Music in Your Living Room | Great Geeky Gadgets | Scoop.it

Few things are better than kicking back on the couch and streaming your favorite album wirelessly to your stereo from your phone. It's a remarkably easy thing to do with AirPlay, but if you don't want to pay for Apple's solutions, a $35 Raspberry Pi does the job remarkably well.

Matmi's insight:

I love all the inventive things people are double with the Rasberry Pi (alsoe love the name :) ). This is just one of the latest cool uses for the mini pc - reeeally mini.

Samsung Announces Youm Flexible OLED Displays at CES 2013

During the Keynote at CES 2013 today, Samsung has announced Youm Flexible OLED Displays. This video will show a prototype device using one of these screens. ...
Matmi's insight:

This is truly amazing stuff! First time in a long time that new mobile technology has actually made my jaw drop. If these work as good as they look, then Apple will need to pull out something special to compete.


I can only imagine the effect this technology could have for new tablet design. It could make them as portable as a phone, leading to the natural conclusion that phones and tablets will merge.


Will these take off as the next generation of mobile or just become a fad?

Google wants to take on Apple with an open AirPlay alternative

Google wants to take on Apple with an open AirPlay alternative | Great Geeky Gadgets | Scoop.it

Google is working on an open alternative to Apple’s AirPlay, and it’s hoping to bring a number of device and software vendors on board to provide the industry with an open technology to exchange data between second screens and TV-connected devices. YouTube unveiled the first implementation of this technology last week, when it launched AirPlay-like video beaming from Android phones and tablets to Google TV devices. But Google product manager Timbo Drayson made it clear during a conversation I had with him a few days ago that this is just the first step. “We really want to move the whole industry forward,” he said.


Google representatives have been talking about bringing an AirPlay-like experience to Google TV for some time, and the company has also worked for years on a closer connection between Android mobile phones and YouTube apps on a variety of smart TV platforms. YouTube first unveiled a YouTube Remote control app two years ago, and then integrated the same remote control functionality into its main YouTube app last year. Both apps allowed users to start the playback of YouTube videos from their phones. But the downside was that the devices first had to be paired by entering a nine-digit code.


Matmi ►

Google vs Apple. All I seem to hear at the moment, oh that and Apple vs Samsung.

Matmi is really excited by the IPTV technology and the possibilities it presents. To name one, it will change the landscape for second screen apps.

Who's afraid of a little live TV? Why streaming service Aereo scares the broadcast industry

Who's afraid of a little live TV? Why streaming service Aereo scares the broadcast industry | Great Geeky Gadgets | Scoop.it
There is an infamous attack ad from the 1970s that opens with a montage of a devil, a vampire, and Frankenstein's monster — and then shifts to a terrifying, anthropomorphized cable box. The angry cable box has red eyes and a wide row of shark-like teeth, which it gnashes as a paternal-sounding announcer warns viewers to stay away from cable: "Don’t let pay TV be the monster in your living room!”

The broadcast television industry has fought — in court, in Congress, and in the media — to block every major innovation in the delivery of its content. Broadcasters fought the upstart cable companies that figured out that a physical connection could deliver a clearer picture than a TV antenna. They fought the VCR and the DVR all the way to the Supreme Court. Now, they’re fighting a startup called Aereo that streams broadcast television live over the internet.


Matmi ►


Gotta love the new streaming world. Fight as they might, the broadcasters need to get with the program (sorry, accidental pun) soon or risk losing more and more viewers. STOP MAKING REALITY TV SHOWS!

APPLE: Here's Why We're Charging $329 For The iPad Mini

APPLE: Here's Why We're Charging $329 For The iPad Mini | Great Geeky Gadgets | Scoop.it
Because we can....


Apple's decision to charge $329 for the iPad mini is a bit surprising since its rivals are charging $199 for comparable tablets.
Phil Schiller, senior vice president of marketing, explained the price to


Reuters:
"The iPad is far and away the most successful product in its category. The most affordable product we've made so far was $399 and people were choosing that over those devices ... And now you can get a device that's even more affordable at $329 in this great new form, and I think a lot of customers are going to be very excited about that."


In other words, we were crushing Amazon and Google when we charged twice as much for our tablet — $400 versus $200. Imagine what we're going to do to them when we're charging even less?

Xbox SmartGlass Hands On: Controlling Your Xbox Is Really Awesome Now

Xbox SmartGlass Hands On: Controlling Your Xbox Is Really Awesome Now | Great Geeky Gadgets | Scoop.it
The biggest boost to convenience with using SmartGlass is probably the keyboard. You know how every time you’ve got to type in a password on your Xbox and you ponder whether you’d rather climb onto your roof and jump face-first into the arborvitaes or spend the 20 minutes required to select one letter at a time? SmartGlass fixes that by popping up the native keyboard every time you come to a text entry box. From what we saw, it’s pretty snappy in the Xbox’s Internet Explorer, and in other places you might need to enter a username or search term.

Windows RT Jailbroken to Run Desktop Apps

Windows RT Jailbroken to Run Desktop Apps | Great Geeky Gadgets | Scoop.it
Windows RT has been hacked to allow desktop apps to run on Microsoft's ARM-based OS. The trick circumvents a setting which usually restricts ARM-based apps to Microsoft's built-in ones, so that unsigned desktop apps can also be installed.

It was inevitable really.


Everytime I see the Windows RT I wish I have the funky keyboard/cover.
