What if my TV wants to make an adhoc connection on one channel and my internet is on another wifi channel? How do I get my wifi-only tablet to play YouTube videos or stuff off my NAS drive onto my TV? I like the XBMC implementation better - connect it to your home network. Screencasting is handy, but sometimes I want to "fling" a network-based video at my TV then carry-on doing ofter things with my tablet
I see what the headline did
Hehe, RIM jobs...
There's an app for that
This isn't about Optus, really. Even if Telstra, the AFL and NRL completely get their way, winning their court cases, getting the Copyright act changed in their favor and millions of dollars continue to be exchanged in pursuit of "exclusive" internet rights, how are they going to stop me from connecting my phone to my home set top box via the internet? I don't need a middleman to view broadcast tv on my phone.
Seems like no-one has yet worked out the way to make internet TV mainstream. It still seems a geeky toy.
Having the major networks block their feeds via Google TV seems kill off a lot of mainstream interest. This is a bit odd as the networks make their shows available via their websites. So Google TV at the very least should be able to display those websites on a TV screen. Google TV can't be blocked if it appears to be a desktop or mobile browser to those websites. From then, it's pretty trivial to just re-format those webpages so the video feeds show fullscreen, and the webpage is controlled via the remote.
If a TV show is available on an organisation's website, then it is able to be displayed on any device, anywhere. The TV networks don't need to know what device I'm using.
Correction to a grammatical error in the headline. It should read:
All WikiLeaks' secret US cables are belong to BitTorrent
Don't mess with the laser...
I'm pretty sure that manufacturing the most dangerous laser ever invented trumps any patent or copyright claim. Does George Lucas really want to be messing with these guys?

It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.
What about the Hisense 1080p Media Player?
Ahem! Not long ago, this very site gave the Hisense 1080p Media Player
(http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2009/11/05/review_media_player_hisense_1080p) an 85% rating, equal to WDTV Live - the #1 recommendation. Considering the Hisense unit is half the price of the WDTV Live, why is it not #1, much less not on this list at all?
