Boxee Box Review

December 19, 2010

It’s been quite a while since our original Boxee (software) review and while a lot has changed much of what made Boxee compelling has only gotten better with the introduction of the Boxee Box by D-Link. Now with Boxee Box there’s a small, self-contained device specifically built for the Boxee platform, no HTPC required. For […]

Knocked out by Natal

June 3, 2009

So again, what does Natal have to do with home theater? A better question might be, what doesn’t it have to do with home theater? Look past the gaming applications and think about the core technologies, voice recognition, this ones simple, “start movie”, “dim lights”, “next video”, so on and so on.

Dolby’s Home Theater Buying Guide

June 13, 2008

I’ve always been a bit leery of “buying guides” as they generally only exist to push specific products or a specific selection of products. But I suppose you could do a lot worse than taking some advice from Dolby Labs, after all they probably already have IP in your home, all they could to do […]

Home Theater Revenue to Nearly Double by 2012

March 5, 2008

Around the office we’ll occasionally joke that there are more people doing home theater than buying home theater. And while it feels true (at least in our neck of the woods) it was encouraging to see some hard data that backs-up something I’ve suspected for quite some time, home theater is still a growth market.

June 30, 2007

The Waiting Game

June 4, 2007

I’ve touched on this subject before but occasionally a first hand example presents itself and reminds me just how prevalent it is among some consumers.

Home Theater Obsolescence

November 30, 2005

No I’m not talking about Home Theater itself but the gear that comprises the systems, or rather what to look for in that new piece of equipment; that will ensure it’s viable for years to come. In the interest of brevity, I won’t go into all the combinations of formats and configurations that are currently […]

Two devices that will change home theater as we know it

May 27, 2005

Pretty big statement eh? Some will argue with me on this one and that’s fine, I expect it. However by mid-2006 the home theater landscape will be forever changed by two devices that mimic something a number of us already own, but could hardly be described as user friendly by the majority of consumers.
