Cool Gadget No3 - Apple TV
It took an Apple Store to open up in the town that I reside for me to actually discover how good this gadget is. I investigated the in's and out's before making the purchase, including looking at my TV provider, of which I am now saving a nice amount per month as I was able to reduce my outgoings with them. How I hear you ask?, I reduced my rental package and rarely watch movies on demand anymore. Watching movies through ITunes costs you almost half the amount than your provider demands, think of the savings there alone. I get my Netflix, watch tv shows, browse my pictures and listen to all my ITunes music but to name a few. Another thumbs up for this gadget, and at only $99 from the Apple Store, $94.99 from Amazon, makes an ideal Birthday or Christmas present.
Everything you want to see and hear - blockbuster movies, TV shows, your music and photos, and sports - plays wirelessly on your HDTV via Apple TV - Play movies and TV shows from Netflix1, browse videos from YouTube and Vimeo, and watch live MLB games2 and get NBA scores, stats, and more - Rent thousands of HD movies, uninterrupted. Or buy TV episodes and watch them anytime - With AirPlay mirroring, whatever's playing on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S can wirelessly play on your HDTV.3 And your photos appear automatically with Photo Stream4 in iCloud.
As simple as that, well I purchased this gadget and have to agree, Sonos had made it easier for me to listen to my music all around my house and on my balconies. Playing all my music purchased or added to my ITunes, as well as using with other devices, I now have endless music streaming from my computer and can select the right music for every occasion. This is a wireless multi-room music system unlike any other, great sound and easy to operate, it sets up instantly and expands effortlessly. I use my IPhone and IPad as remote controls from any location within range. Love music?, you will love this.
This is my first camera (that is not a straight point and shoot) into the digital photography world, and so far I am very pleased with the results. It is a lightweight and very easy to hold and operate model. I am normally comfortable with the little Cyber-Shot Digital Cameras, but, after much research and asking around, I went ahead with this purchase and I am loving it, still getting used to it, but, loving it and no regrets with the purchase.
Take a picture with the camera for lots more Nikon deals.
Cool Gadget No6 - Apple iPad Mini (32GB, Wi-Fi + AT&T 4G, Black)
I just love my iPad.
The iPad is a line of tablet computers designed, developed and marketed by Apple primarily as a platform for audio-visual media including books, periodicals, movies, music, games, and web content. Its size and weight falls between those of contemporary smartphones and laptop computers. The iPad runs the same operating system as the iPod Touch and iPhone-and can run its own applications as well as iPhone applications. Without modification, and with the exception of web applications, it will only run programs approved by Apple and distributed via its online store.
Like iPhone and iPod Touch, the iPad is controlled by a multitouch display-a departure from most previous tablet computers, which used a pressure-triggered stylus-as well as a virtual onscreen keyboard in lieu of a physical keyboard. The iPad uses a Wi-Fi data connection to browse the Internet, load and stream media, and install software. Some models also have a 3G wireless data connection which can connect to HSPA data networks. The device is managed and synced by iTunes on a personal computer via USB cable.

Bose Portable SoundDock Digital Music SystemLove it or hate it, very little IPhone/iPod speaker systems rival the popularity of Bose's SoundDock, Bose strategically gambled in late 2004 on offering a highly simplified, visually neutral all-in-one audio solution, and the bet paid off. Despite the price premium, SoundDock became a major international hit, and inspired waves of competitors who thought they could improve upon Bose's formula. Despite their best efforts, the vast majority failed.
I purchased this little system a few years back and have never regretted buying, I just love Bose, and yes I do have a Bose home entertainment system of which I shall share with you in the very near future.
I guess the only close competitor I have in my house to this system is my Sonos ZonePlayer S5, both very much portable and with great sounds,both have their uses and will be very much in operation for a long time to come.
As Bose would say: Music has the power to move you-and Bose has a speaker system that moves with your music. The SoundDock Portable system offers a combination of performance and playtime that other rechargeable systems can't match. Enjoy music from your iPod or iPhone almost anywhere. On the deck or in the dorm room, at the park or on the beach, it reproduces your favorite tunes with fullness and clarity unusual for a portable system. Guess that says it all?.
