Info Appliances

The business model in terms of total available market (TAM) for information appliances may have to be clarified.

The Trinexus TVPostman

From the comfort of your favourite lazy-boy, you can write e-mail from the wireless keyboard and still watch TV thanks to picture in picture viewing. You can't ask for an easier solution to stay in contact with friends and family.

Jefferson Project

The Jefferson Project is appropriately named for its goal of providing equal access to information and benefit to everyone in the community. The Jefferson Project merges easy-to-use in home Internet connectivity with a wealth of local content in a safe, familiar local website, where the users do not have to learn new technical skills or how to surf.

Nomad Jukebox MP3 player

You can organize play lists, change modes and adjust sound effects etc. without the need of a PC. The LCD window and menu are easy to follow and give you lots of options and control. There are jacks for external inputs and outputs so the Nomad can become a component of your entertainment system. EAX special effects are also available and provide some cool sound enhancements to the system.

The Energy Crisis Rolls On

If we all do even a little bit, it will make a great difference in the availability of our resources. With all these products here at X10, keeping those electric bills down should be the easiest thing you do this winter.

Ultimate Convergence

Ultimately, the consumer will win. The various technologies and functionalities will converge. Within the next two to five years, you'll see large deployments of residential gateways that will consolidate functions and deliver valuable services that are simple and affordable. You'll find you can be entertained, keep an eye on the kids' TV viewing habits from the office, control the pool temperature, and preheat the oven for dinner as you commute home - all with a single, easy-to-use gateway device.

X-Ray Vision Internet Kit

X-ray vision remote software can be downloaded from www.x10.com and used to view your camera images from anywhere via an internet connection. Just enter your home computer's IP address, type in your password and you are able to see the images from the remote camera ( updated every 10 seconds to 2 minutes).

Xemics iCAP

XEMICS XE8000 supports Internet Connected Appliances Protocol (iCAP). XEMICS has demonstrated functionality of Tetraedre(2) and emWare(3) protocols on its ultra-low-power mixed-signal XE8000 MCU. Both protocols are based on a Windows or UNIX PC used as server and then point-to-point connection between the server and appliance.

Social Trends

In this last of a three-part series, I will explore some of the Social and Demographic trends that are driving the development of the Networked Home. The first article covered Science and Technology Trends, and the second focused on Market and Consumer trends. As always, your comments and suggestions are encouraged.

A Shared Vision

The ETI Alliance members understand that no one company can provide all the elements necessary for every device networking solution. That's why the ETI Alliance includes leading businesses from numerous industries. Leading microprocessor and microcontroller manufacturers are members of the ETI Alliance, as are the makers of database, network management, ERP and vertical applications.

Alphabet Soup

So how do we stay afloat in this sea of acronyms? We all gather, organize and analyze information in our own unique way. But there are a few common techniques you can use to help separate fact from fiction, meat from gristle, hype from news…well, you get the idea. Here's my version of the RAAT (Redundant Acronym Analysis Tool), a series of questions you can ask yourself to help you qualify a new acronym.

IR543AH IR Device

For most people with a comprehensive X10 setup this device is an absolute god-send! The ability to operate any of the 256 unique X10 codes from your armchair is superb. The unit will also mean those people who already have an IR distribution system in their home will only need this single unit to control X10 devices from any room in their property.

Largest HA Project

Utilities around the world are realizing that the on-going deregulation of their industry requires them to step up and offer new and dynamic services that differentiate their offerings from their competitors. Another enabler for the service-driven model of the Digital Home® is the undeniable and constant trend toward cheaper and faster broadband pipes into the home.

Networking Trends

This is the second of three articles that examine key trends enabling and driving the development of the Networked Home. The first article covered Science and Technology Trends while this one discusses Market and Consumer Trends. The final installment will address Social and Demographic Trends. As always, your comments and suggestions are encouraged.

Orinoco RG-1000 Residential Gateway

I must admit this is my first good experience with wireless networking so I'm pretty hyped about the convenience. There may be better or cheaper systems out there that I haven't tried yet but as far as I'm concerned the RG 1000 does the job that I need to get my work done every day ... and that's what is most important to me at this point. It's definitely a keeper.
