Western Digital’s newest contribution to the streaming media player market – formerly known as the WD TV-2 – is now available at Best Buy without much hullabaloo.  Sure it’s not an earth shattering product, but for a relatively low price it offers functionality missing on many Blu-ray players, receivers and televisions.  For a scant $119, the WD TV Live Media Player allows the streaming of content from Youtube and Pandora, as well as the viewing of photos on Flickr.

Modularity is the theme of the day, as Taiwanese company ITRI is showing off their prototype fleXpeaker technology.  Allowing for an infinitely expandable speaker to suit any setup, this may be the perfect accessory for that 155 inch OLED from Mitsubishi. Using paper as the main material, the ITRI fleXpeaker is less than 10mm thick.  Power consumption is said to be 10% of traditional speakers, which would make battery power for portable speakers a no brainer.

While it’s pretty impractical for use in anything but a commercial setting at the moment, we can’t help but marvel at the 155” of OLED screen that Mitsubishi had on display at CEATEC last week. Of course, OLEDs are still extremely expensive and manufacturing a true 155” screen would be as difficult as it would be costly. What Mitsubishi has done though, is created a large display made up of over 700 smaller 10cm by 10cm OLED panels.

It’s easy to ignore predictions set forth by the press, analysts, and even those in the business.  Of course, it’d be a shame to ignore someone that just might have some insight.  Take Reed Hastings, the CEO of Netflix.  He heads an incredibly successful company that seems to have jumped into streaming technology at just the right time.

Packed in right among the CEATEC announcements for $75,000 professional grade televisions with 4K2K screens and crazy singing robots is the debut of a new entry level projector from Panasonic. With the PT-AE4000U, Panasonic hopes to provide a high quality projector at a fairly low price point.  Offering a 1080p image and a stated contrast ratio of 100,000:1, the new LCD projector hopes to improve over its predecessor, the PT-AE3000U.

Don’t get too excited about those 320GB discs touted by TDK yesterday.  The Blu-ray Disc Association has no plans to allow their use as a video medium.  Sure, TDK claims to have made their ten layer, 320GB Blu-ray discs in such a way that current Blu-ray players should have no trouble at all reading them.   Of course consumers would love the opportunity to view an entire season of a show on one disc.

The concept of the all in one device is constantly evolving.  From the Swiss Army Knife to the Home Theater PC, there are some people who want it all, but they want it all in one tiny package. The new Sony Vaio L Touch HTPC caters to just those people.  With a 24” multi touch screen, a terabyte of hard drive space, an HDMI input and a built in tuner the Vaio L Touch features a little bit of everything.
