XBMC on AppleTV

So, it looks like the folks over Engadget got their hands on an AppleTV that has been upgraded with XBMC, giving it all sorts of tricks not supported by the standard configuration. Betting the folks over at Apple, not to mention their competitors aren't too happy if this $99 box has a chance of becoming a new toy that with a little secret sauce will do a lot more than these companies pricier offerings. But for now the good news for them (bad for us) is that the install is only feasible for the true alpha geek, but I'm sure that problem will be rectified in short order.

Kodak Bringing Media Hub To Your Living Room

"ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) today unveiled the KODAK Theatre HD Player, a High Definition (HD) media player that enables consumers to interact more freely and creatively with their most valuable possessions -- their memories. Harnessing Wi-Fi and HD technologies, a wide array of organizational and display features and access to online content through unique partners, the KODAK Theatre HD Player turns consumers into the directors of their own show with a wireless remote control pointer in-hand. The device will roll out in stages, with a market trial commencing in September 2008."



It looks like Kodak will be bringing their own HD media hub to your living room, the KODAK Theatre HD Player, which appears to be in competition with Windows Media Center and Apple TV. I haven't seen any pictures of the interface or actual hardware, but it will be really difficult to compete with Media Center's interface and Apple TV's hardware. Right now it looks like it will only be able to display video at 720p, why wouldn't they have this device future-proofed and give it the ability to display at 1080p??? I'm not too excited about this device, but I'll have to see the final hardware before making final judgement.


Featured Product

The Canon PowerShot S100 - The incredibly fun and small camera that offers you 12.1 megapixels with a bright f/2.0 lens and full 1080p video recording . MORE INFO
