Smart TV features have, in the matter of a few years, gone from being a luxury to being an essential.  Buying a new set just for Netflix is hard to justify, and picking up a set-top box that takes up valuable space in your existing setup isn't optimal either.  That's why Infinitec has created the Pocket TV, a dongle that gives you the full Android experience in a package just a bit longer than a USB stick.

Dolby Laboratories announced today 20 cinemas wordlwide will be able to show Disney-Pixar's 'Brave' in the Dolby Atmos surround sound format. Atmos, reviewed here and here, is Dolby's most advanced and flexible theatrical surround sound format to date. It featuers at least 9.1 discrete audio channels (three front channels, two side channels, two rear channels, two overhead cieling channels, and an LFE channel) with the ability to expand up to 64.4 surround sound depending on cinema auditorium size and specifications. 'Brave', a 3D computer animated fairytale from the braintrust at Pixar, is the first film to be mixed in the ultra-immersive formatwhen the film releases on June 22, 2012. Dolby plans to equip 1,000 movie theatres with Atmos by summer 2013, but for now, you'll have to travel to select cities.

If you want all your music in one convenient place, ready to stream across your house then you might consider an Olive music server.  They've got a few different models with varying capabilities offering  up to 2TB of storage, 24-bit/192kHz DACs and a full color touchscreen, but they're doing a little bit more to entice you now – offering free iPods and iPads.

When companies release new versions of their old gear, the changes usually aren't that big.  You'll see slightly improved performance, a few new parts, or a cool new feature that brings it in line with current tech.  The Mark II ClairAudient is different.  Instead of a frequency response of 80Hz to 22kHz, the new version goes down to 30Hz.  It's a huge change, and one that will certainly be welcome by Audient customers.

And you thought multizone audio was cool.  The latest from Denon and Marantz takes it to a whole new level.  Their upcoming receivers will pack an extra HDMI output that provides video in another zone.  It's not explicitly stated, but we're guessing that means you'll get multi-channel audio, upscaling and the rest as part of the deal.

Dish Network recently announced a very cool new DVR called The Hopper.  Your DVR may have the ability to jump ahead 30 seconds and allow you to skip through commercials fairly quickly, but the Hopper can do away with them completely.  Its functionality is a bit limited at the moment – it only works for the major networks and it doesn't work until 24 hours after the program airs.  Once it does though, you simply have to make sure the commercial skipping feature is enabled, then sit back and enjoy.
