Scaling the Sea of HD

The misconceptions about 1080p and HD programming certainly make video scaling and processing more relevant as "early adopters" spend thousands on Full HD displays incapable of outputting their "golden resolution" because of inadequate source material.

Selling , With the Emphasis on Style

What these stores are about is selling a lifestyle, not just a system. The great thing is, from the owner's perspective, it doesn't actually cost any more to do a store like this. Instead of spending all their money on keeping stock of hundreds of different items, it's going on the furniture, the d©cor, the things that we think will make buying hi-fi and home cinema equipment a pleasurable experience again.

Surround Speaker System Set-up

Opening two programs side by side is possible with the VP23330WB. Having Photoshop open next to your 3d application makes texture painting a lot less tasking. Also using one side of the monitor for reference material is also a nice luxury.

Web Content Coming to Devices

The original definition of the World Wide Web was formulated in terms of connectivity between multiple PCs. Now it is referencing a network of interoperable devices capable of sending and receiving documents formatted in HTML (Hypertext Mark-up Language), transferred via HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol).

Harmony 880 Advanced Universal Remote Control

The remote itself is very nice to use ... the buttons are slick and the LCD screen is clear. Having a recharging station is terrific too. I never lose the remote any more, it's always ready to go and I never have to worry about changing batteries. The IR signals are stronger than any other unit I've tried so it never fails to do it's job. Just picking up or tilting the unit brings on the LCD screen ... no buttons to push for that ... nice!

Panasonic KX-TG6502B Phone System

A major advantage of these phones is that you only need one phone jack for the main unit. The rest of the handsets just need an AC outlet for the charger. This makes it easy to use with VOIP since both lines are connected via one Router and there is no need to wire the house or condo for multiple lines.
