April 12, 2009 – The future of TV…

With TV about to change in this great nation of ours, we thought we’d talk about what the Internet has in store for the future of television.

Sure, you might think that Digital TV and HDTV are sitting pretty advertised as the next big thing, but just go and check out IPTV, otherwise known as Internet-Protocol TV. On this show, we’re looking at some of the companies and solutions that are leading the way to let you run TV from your home computer.

Plus we’re taking a look at a laptop that can last a flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The new MSI Wind U115 has the potential to reach one of the highest battery lifes we’ve ever seen. We’ll tell you more in this show.

All of that including news on Apple’s newest stuff, ways technology could help your health, Microsoft’s competitor to the iPod, and a whole heap more!
