News - ASUS CES 2016 announcements

I think ASUS forgot to mention HTPC as a key use case for its recently announced mini-PCs. Looking at the spec's and product photos, they would slot right into the A/V cabinet Smile.

News - D-Link CES 2016 announcements

D-Link made a few announcements earlier today around new products and features (IFTTT!), but I think the most interesting is a home 802.11AC kit with adaptive roaming. Of all the questions I get asked about Wi-Fi, how to seemlessly extend a wireless network is the most common. Adaptive roaming has been around for ages in the enterprise space, but AFAIK this is the first really consumer oriented product to offer the automated AP hand-off feature. I'm really looking forwared to testing it - if it lives up to the billing, D-Link will have a fantastic feature advantage. Here's to hoping that it's not just a kit feature, but also something that can be added to their existing routers as well.

News - Amped Wireless announces pair of AC2600 MU-MIMO home Wi-Fi devices

It's unclear to me what's different between the router and Amped Wireless's earlier AC2600 device, but it's great that they now have an AC2600 extender and the price of both is pretty compelling.

News - Amped Wireless Debuts First Long Range, High Power HD Wi-Fi Cameras with up to 3X the Range

Range is a big problem with Wi-Fi cameras because they usually get deployed at the edges, so 3x the range of normal devices sounds like a killer feature for the new Amped Wireless cameras.

News - Zipato announces ZipaTILE HAC

If you're looking for a snazzy looking home automation controller (HAC), the quad-core ARM9 Android 5 based ZipTILE looks really interesting. Especially considering the compute power, HA ecosystem support (Z-Wave, Zigbee, Nest, etc.) and sensors. I've never played with Zipato's kit, but the demo I saw last year was pretty impressive.

News - Roku beefs up RokuTV platform, includes HDR reference design

Roku has one of the best OTT platforms available. I wish more TV OEMs would include it on board, instead of their proprietary SmartTV implementation. While I doubt it will happen, it's great that Roku is expanding the offering and produced a HDR reference design - it could happen Smile.
