In Appreciation of the Harbeth Compact 7 ES-3
The Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 stand mounted loudspeakers have the distinction of being in residence in this reviewer's system for seven consecutive years. The speakers, in a distinguished cherry finish, are not only an excellent reviewer’s tool, but a music lover’s dream. These British boxes have been reviewed numerous times in print, and online.

IOGEAR Wireless HD Computer to TV Kit and USB 2.0 External HD Audio / Video Adapter Review
I’ve often wanted an easy, direct way to share photos and videos from my computer especially when I have company over.  I prefer to comfortably recline in my chair while narrating vacation photos and videos instead of having a bunch of people crowding around my computer screen and creating a claustrophobic environment.Rather than invest in a traditional projector setup, hassle with wires and worry about the video and sound quality, IOGEAR now offers a solution that allows me to use my 55” LCD HDTV as a second computer screen.

iTunes Moves into the Cloud
After many months of speculation, Steve Jobs announced that iTunes would be finally utilizing cloud storage upon the release of iOS5 in the Fall of 2011.  The new service, aptly called iCloud, stores music, video, books, apps and photos as well as syncs them over all your devices (non-Apple devices included and up to 10).  For instance, if you purchased a new album on your iPhone, it would automatically be synced to your PC & iPad the next time they are connected to the Internet.  The completely free iCloud service replaces MobileMe, a similar concept that Apple attempted to charge a yearly fee of $99.   Apple is also rolling out iTunes Match.  Likely coming from their recent acquisition of LaLa, iTunes Match will take all the songs that you have downloaded from other sources over the years and match them ...
