Still on my Want list and even more now!

These updates reflect valued feedback from the growing community of Hue enthusiasts and developers worldwide.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:19 CET under 01 - General News

Sonos today introduced the Sonos Playbar, the soundbar for music lovers. Playbar brings immersive HiFi sound to the TV and, being a typical Sonos full Wireless HiFi System, streams all the music on earth through one easy-to-use player. The sophisticated all-in-one design of Playbar combines exposed aluminum with high performance speaker fabric for a look that's timeless, understated and because it does not require a subwoofer or speaker wire, easily fits into any room and setup. Its built-in sensors help Playbar automatically adjust EQ and channel orientation so it can lie flat on the TV stand or rotate for low profile wall-mounting above or below the TV.

SERVICE: the::unwired launches SlingPlayer RT Web Page for Windows RT Tablets

And while Windows RT comes with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 10, Sling Media's web player is also not an option because it requires an ActiveX plug-in which can't be installed on ARM powered Windows RT devices. The only chance is to access your compatible Slingbox through Facebook but who wants to watch TV via Facebook?
