Life with a PS3 Changes Things

Wow, it's been a while since I made my last post. That's what I was thinking and I started to think about why that might be. I came to the conclusion, that since purchasing the Sony Playstation 3, the television, is now a device I can embrace once again. Seriously, the television was on it's way out the door, but then some one shed some light on the wonderful goodness of browsing the internet on your hi-def tv. It was finally, a better way forward.

When using the the PS3 with a hi-def television, you can browse the internet on your tv and watch on demand content from YouTube, Hulu, and a ton of other video and social websites. I've been calling this internet television, TV 2.0. Because the PS3 is a DLNA compatible device, I can steam, music, movies, pictures, subscibe to podcasts and more from my computer over the wireless network.

On that last note, it might be worthwhile to consider buying a new wireless n router so you can stream HD movies (while still doing all your other network intensive stuff like voip, streaming video, bittorent).

Once you step up to watching strickly internet video (or free dtv), you start to realize that you've got access to all your favorite shows (without having to pay for content subscriptions). Since getting the PS3, I've been even further enveloped in a world of hi-tech gadgetry. I live in a very network centric home, and I'll tell you what........ I like it. I like alot!
