Programmable Remotes – Control ALL Your Technology!

remote controlsThink of all the technology currently residing in your lounge or any other room at home. The TV, the satellite box, DVD player, CD player, Blu-ray and probably many other examples of modern pieces of technological gadgetry and gizmos. AND they probably all came with their own remote control, meaning the number you have to operate each individual item of equipment is probably fairly large.

Ever thought of having just one programmable remote, that does all of them?

A high quality programmable remote control can be used to control all manner of different electronic equipment from CD changers, DVDs, VCRs, amplifiers, gaming consoles, PCs and even lighting fixtures and air conditioning units.

There are many advantages to having a programmable universal remote… Read more!

‘It’s In The Cloud’ – What Does That Really Mean?

History of Cloud Computing

The hot phrase in computing these days is cloud computing and data storage. The idea of cloud computing has been around since the 1960s, when relay networks were used to push and share research information around the world. Eventually, data services and applications began to be offered via websites on the internet.

In other words, the lines through which we transmit data are finally powerful enough to handle large file transfers quickly. But what is the cloud?

Why You Should Steer Clear Of Smart TV’s

Samsung Smart TV

It’s easy for TV manufacturers to advertise smart TV sets. When people see the term “smart” used to describe devices, they often unquestioningly accept that they are likely to be superior to conventional, non-smart devices.

This assumption doesn’t work well with smart TVs. A 2012 survey by consumer market research group NPD called Internet Connected TVs Are Used To Watch TV, And That’s About All finds that most people with smart TVs rarely use the smart features that their sets have. They don’t use their TVs for Facebook, Twitter or Internet browsing , for instance. Instead, they simply use their TVs as they would regular, non-smart models. To anyone planning a smart TV purchase, this survey should be reason enough to stop and think.

Bring Home The 3D Experience With Samsung 40′ 3D Smart TV

From small black and white screens to large 3d full high definition panels, the television industry has certainly come a long way. Today televisions are getting more and more complex and with this complexity the price is also rising. I think that today’s smart LED and OLED TVs are much more than just display panels, I am not sure if it’s even right to call them TVs as they have evolved much more in terms of design and functionality. Today you can get a web browser, a live TV recorder, a webcam, 3d display, applications and what not on a high end television. This Christmas I bought a Samsung 3d full high definition panel for my living room. After watching it for a month I have decided to make a review on it so that I can help fellow buyers get the best deal. Let’s see what this TV has to offer.

Should I Switch To A TV Antenna Instead Of Cable?

In today’s technology-driven world, most of us automatically assume that we must pay high-monthly fees to watch our favorite TV shows. We’ve always had to pay high amounts for our monthly cable subscription.
