      Why do you only hang out in sponsor chat every once in a while you're fun to make fun of :(

    • I want a simple solution for this nightmarish problem...

      So I have been doing a lot of tech reading today about things that may or may not be at CES next week. Sadly I won't be attending this year due to budgeting/work schedules. Through my browsing I saw some speculations on the Next Generation game consoles and their integration with other devices. Which highlights a problem I have on a nightly basis.

      The Situation:

      The systems are designed now to be an all encompassing entertainment system. Music, Movies, Games, TV all in one box. And I love it. For the way I consume my media I would only need my Xbox and my surround sound. (At the moment I have an HTIB with a built in Blu-Ray, which if the next Xbox had that integrated I might finally get serious about thinking about maybe planning on starting to save for a respectable theater system.) I bought the LG HTIB and TV in hopes that Simplink wouldn't suck, and sadly it does. The audio never controls correct and there is 0 customization. I have my Harmony, but I don't have line of sight to my equipment from where I use it. I could go RF, but no. I'm tired of losing my TV remote in my bed sheets, or between the bed and the wall anyway. I want to use my phone or (ideally) the Xbox controller itself.

      The Improbable Solution:

      I want SmartGlass and a Harmony to have a baby that is powered by hopes, dreams, lithium ion batteries and WiFi. I don't want to use IR or RF for my equipment. Line of sight is for suckers and those IR blasters are a hassle. I love how my phone can control my Xbox via WiFi. Now if I could get it to also control my audio and video the same way I would be set. I don't lose my phone or my Xbox controllers, they are either to large or charging on my desk. The remotes however goes who knows where when I sleep. (Pretty sure I have mock light saber battles at night and use them as the hilts.) The controller won't be a viable mass market application, so the phone/tablet market is the way to go. I just want to sync my devices to SmartGlass and then be done with it. I have no need for a tablet now, but if this were a thing I would would. Currently I would go Android, but if there was a TV and a corresponding Receiver that were SmartGlass certified or some other thing I would go Surface..and maybe get a Windows Phone. Just to simplify my at home entertainment.

      So please CES 2013/Microsoft/Everyone else. Make this thing a thing and then

      Its work days like today that I wish I had one of Ben Heck's Xbox Laptops. Or even one of those cases giant ugly cases. I know that I wouldn't get the chance to use something like that very often, but damn it these long slow work days are no fun.

      I miss you Pandora.

        The username thing isn't anything special. I can change it when ever for I am all powerful! (and its a basic feature). The staff badge, I had to bribe some people.

      Heyo! Meant to do this a coulple of days ago, but I seemed to have fully murdered my computer through the careful application of carelessness and porn. It was really great meeting you and getting to hang out for much of the weekend. It was obviously awesome meeting the RT people and chatting with them, but making new friends is right up there with that experience!

      The two couldn't live together and I had to make a decision. Could she help me buy movie tickets or watch porno? No...Internet wins.

      "Then I realized that the internet was my only true love and came back."

      The question is, do you still have your wife, you know... like in a polyamorous relationship with her and the internet?
