Homeowners with the need to stream HD content from room-to-room will soon have a new option from Netgear and Design of Systems on Silicon to pipe data through a building’s existing electrical infrastructure. This new 200Mbps Powerline HD technology named TriplePlay uses DS2 chipsets to allow bandwith-hungry multimedia content to be streamed from a PC to products in any room with an electrical outlet, providing plug-and-play convenience at the expense of wireless freedom, as devices on the receiving end of the signal must remain tethered to the wall. The new Netgear/DS2 hardware will be on display next month at CeBIT, and should be available to consumers sometime in the second quarter of this year.

Your Photo Frame Needs its own E-mail Address…
Looking for the ultimate cool photo gadget? Then take heart young geek or geekette. ThinkGeek has the new and completely unique eStarling Wi-Fi Photo Frame ready for your hot little geek paws. “Wi-Fi Picture Frame?” you respond quizzically with great anticipation… The eStarling frame is a standalone Wi-Fi LCD photo frame that connects to a wireless network and automatically displays photos e-mailed to it in a slideshow format. Additionally you can specify an RSS photo feed from Flickr based on your own tagged keywords. You can even shoot photos on your mobile phone then e-mail them directly to your eStarling frame for display.
Let us elucidate on the eStarling’s inner workings.
To get things rolling you need to configure the eStarling Frame by connecting it to your PC via the included USB cable. Once configured, the frame can be disconnected from the PC and operates in a completely stand-alone mode.
Using the eStarling software select the wireless network to connect to. The eStarling supports WEP encryption and has a full-featured TCP/ IP setup supporting DHCP, Proxies and Manual IP.
The eStarling frame supports standard POP E-mail. Simply enter the POP server, username and password. Optionally you can thwart possible spam by allowing only e-mails from a certain e-mail address to be received. We recommend you set-up a free Google Gmail account for your eStarling so it can have a dedicated e-mail address… that makes it happy.
Flickr RSS Photo Feed Configuration
Simply do a search on Flickr for your favorite photos. Cut and paste the URL from the “RSS 2.0” link at the bottom of the page into the eStarling software. You can even do multiple feeds at once. Once a feed is set-up Flickr photos matching your search criteria go into rotation on the frame. As new photos are posted to Flickr, they show up on the frame.
Simply e-mail any JPEG or BMP photo to the eStarling frame. It polls for new e-mail every few minutes and puts any photos it receives into rotation on the frame in a slideshow format. The internal memory holds about 30 photos… so as new photos are sent the oldest photos are removed from the frame. The frame functions similarly when receiving photos via the Flickr photo feed.
If you install a CF or SD card with photos into the eStarling frame these will go into rotation on the frame along with any photos received via e-mail or Flickr photo feeds.

There seems to be another ‘format’ out for digital music and videos. It’s not a format as in mp3, ogg, or wma/wmv but an assurance that the digital content you buy will play for sure on your digital device of your choice.
This is what they say on their website:
Look for the PlaysForSure logo if you’re shopping for a music or video device and you want to make sure the digital music and video you purchase will play back on it every time. Match the PlaysForSure logo on a large selection of leading devices and online music stores. If you see the logo you’ll know your digital music will play for sure.
The PlaysForSure logo makes it easy to find digital media stores and devices that work together.
Choose from a large number of digital music and video stores including: CinemaNow, MSN Music, MusicMatch, MusicNow, Napster, Wal-Mart Music Downloads, and many more.
Look for the PlaysForSure logo on a wide variety of devices including portable music devices, portable video devices, digital audio receivers, Pocket PC’s and Smartphones.
And these are the logos to look for:
The PlaysForSure audio and video logos
tell you if the device or online store supports the music and/or movies and video.
There’s also a device search and a store search to help you in this.
But what if I already own an mp3 player which does not have that logo on it as I bought it some time ago? Would it support the downloads I purchase?
BERLIN (Reuters) – A 44-year-old German businessman whose digital
camera was stolen at a restaurant was relieved when he managed to buy
exactly the same model on the eBay Internet auction site to match his
But he became suspicious when it emerged the seller came from his home town. It proved to be the same camera.
Police said on Thursday they were questioning the 34-year-old vendor
who, in a statement said, “claims he got the camera at a flea market, but
was also offering other cameras on the Internet”.
Other stolen cameras? Is EBay becoming the flea market of stolen things?
