freeview this, freeview that. What about freesat versions of these things guys????
These things all look good... but for those of us that want to replace our over-priced sky kit and services, something that talks freesat rather than freeview would be good too. :(
I need my weekly dose of Amy Pond! Leave Amy Pond alone!!!! :)
I have fond memories of Ericsson and then Sony Ericsson phones.
The T28 with stubby aerial.
The cute 610 with dodgy joystick and naff camera.
The wonderful (for its time) p800i.
The p910i with the keyboard only dwarves could use.
Some random k7xx that also had a dodgy joystick.
The throwaway bond-themed k800i. Great camera. Naff joystick... again :)
However, all instantly consigned to a trash can/charity when apple brought out the iPhone.
A lot of the libraries that were listed as being in the south west.. are actually in the south east. Not a good start.
Also, typically, my local library doesn't understand digital anything. It's still in the stone age :(
I bought last year's model of panasonic tv. If you bought the 150 quid camera, you could also get skype.
However, since the firmware hasn't been updated since I bought it, and isn't likely to, since this years models are out, I'm expecting that this will be an expensive white elephant. The skype service will forever stay in beta.
I'd love to be proved wrong tho.
Supposedly the company that makes the slingbox is also coming out with a gadget called something like the sling catcher which should be able to take slingbox generated network traffic and display it on a tv, amongst other neat tricks.http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2007/09/27/sling_names_slingcatcher_release_date/
It was displayed at a trade show earlier this year and was due around the middle of this year, but has been apparently delayed by a few months.
