The future belongs to media players. We have seen some great media players such as the Apple Tv, Roku, WD and so on but none have actually wanted to make me shift from my Bluray players to them till I used the Popcorn Hour A400.
The A400 is the fourth generation media player from Syabas(Now Cloud Media) and is their latest and greatest(my personal opinion). Measuring at 7.2 inches wide, 6.2 inches deep and 2.2 inches high and weighs 2.86 pounds, don’t let the size fool you. This is one powerful device.
I transferred the heaviest movie I had( Life of Pi which was in excess of 45GB) and hit the play button thinking it would take a good few minutes so play but surprisingly in less than 5 seconds it did the trick. The same file when played thru Apple TV………well I just got tired of waiting. Read more

I came across an app(Mac) which is by far the best TV show app I have ever come across. Going by the name of TVShows 2 this app is a must for Tv SHow enthusiasts.
The interface is simple and to the point. You click “add show” and do a search for the show you want, click subscribe and you’re done. The next time your favorite TV show airs this app will automatically download the recently aired episode(HD) No need to track the shows and no need to visit any website.
It is actually that simple.
The TVShows 2 app is available for Mac only from here.
