    • 0 Comments has a good review up of the Samsung YH-999 Portable Media Center. I looked at one of these at Best Buy and I fell in love. I'll probably pick one up soon. Read the full review here:
    Review of the Samsung YH-999 Portable Media Center
    ...From the MCE operating system to the Windows Media Center Extender products, it's been clear that Microsoft's vision for digital media is finally starting to mature. With the MCE OS, consumers can tap into existing digital media from various sources and use it to their hearts content. With the Media Center Extender, users can now take this media (most of it at least), and distribute it around the house using a network. Completing the grand digital media vision is the Microsoft Portable Media Center which allows you to take the various media files that you may have on the road with you.

    Xbox Media Center Extender Video

    I spent most of my vacation this holiday rebuilding my computer systems and network. I installed Windows Media Center Extender on my living room Xbox and on my Media Center 2005 PC. The results have been absolutely amazing. I'm demoing the finished system to my wife and kids and they're currently watching the old home movies. They could care less about all the technology that I'm so excited about, for them it's all about the content. (As it should be.)

    I decided to put together a little video demo of the system. This is a five meg file shot with my Sony TR3 laptop. (There's a noticeable grinding sound in the video, which is from the hard drive on the laptop. I'll use a mic next time.)

    You can check out the video here.
    If you have any comments let me know. If this works out, I'll start to put together some other videos.
