If you're anything like me, you like your TV big, your beer cold and your internet fast.  And I'm not talking about that 12mbps download rate that passes for high-speed.  I'm talking about the good stuff. Time Warner has launched an impressive service that gives you up to 50mbps down and 5mpbs up at a price of $99 a month.  It's not bad for crazy fast internet, but the company sweetens the deal even more by adding a free Slingbox to the offer.

One of the very exciting possibilities that was talked about before the launch of Google TV was the Android Market.  Using the same apps on your TV as on your phone, buying on one, using on the other - there are plenty of reasons to be interested in using the Android Market. We're getting closer now, thanks to the launch of the latest Android software development kit (SDK).  Google's new SDK for Android allows app makers to prepare their programs for use with Google TV and allows them to start working on new ones.

When setting up a home theater with a projector, some folks do it right.  A surprisingly large amount of people don't though.  They shell out for a high quality projector, a nice Blu-ray player, a receiver, speakers and the like.  Then they sit down to watch a movie that's projected on a wall.  This happens more often than it should. A good screen can make a world of difference in terms of picture quality and the new Black Diamond projection screen adds a bit of aesthetic appeal to a room.  It can be hung on a wall or flown from cables which gives it an incredibly cool look.  Your projector's picture goes all the way to the edge, which make the picture look almost like it's floating.

The Diamond 10 series has been a very good one for Wharfedale and the Jade series steps up the game.  Yes, I know, diamonds are more valuable than jades, but shh. The Jade line consists of four stereo speakers - two floorstanding and two, well, not - two center channels, and a wall mountable speaker designed for use in surround channels.

Optoma's new projectors are aimed directly at the custom install crowd.  The HD8300 and HD3300 are projectors at two fairly distant price points, but they have quite a bit in common. Both utilize HDMI 1.4 and are compatible with the gamut of mandatory 3D formats and you can even set other modes manually in case you need them.  Both offer an RS-232 port, +12V triggers and a VESA 3D port.  The new projectors use the company's RF technology and glasses instead of infrared.

Definitive's newest StudioMonitor loudspeakers are designed to bring big sound in a small package.  It's the first new bookshelf speaker from the company in nearly a decade and Definitive has added a few new tricks to the lineup. All three models - the SM 45, 55 and 65 - offer up the company's Balanced Double Surround System bass/midrange drivers and Pure Aluminum dome tweeters to ensure crystal clear highs.  The 55 and 65 add top-mounted bass radiators for some extra low frequency response.

There isn't always enough space in a room to place speakers and in-wall installation is overkill for a room that's your secondary or tertiary viewing option.  That doesn't mean you have to suffer with less than optimal audio though - soundbars are constantly improving and shrinking to minimize the visual impact. The new Mythos sound bars from Definitive offer a slick look and features that should help get that audio as good as it can be.  Both the XTR-SSA5 and the SSA3 use XTDD technology in their 3.5 inch drivers, which Definitive says give them the sort of punch that's normally missing in shallow drivers.
