    This unit by Vodafone is a true trail blazer. I have been searching for a media center device that will offer more than rss feeds or channels. Since I have came back to droids about one month ago through my smart phone after a year layoff, I see the future very clear now. Android Apps present so many opportunities far more then just cell phones. Television as we know will never be the same. Cable companies and major networks will no longer have the power that the have been accustomed to. The $200.00 a month bills will be a faded memories. I’m am no computer expert by no means. I am fascinated with the gadgetry and wizard like marvels that we are now submerged in. I mean think about it, we are living and experiencing mind blowing technology comparable to Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. I am writing this review from my bed on my one day old HP tablet. From a business prospective doors and opportunities are opening and gadgets beget gadgets.

    After all of my research and web surfing I settled on play station 3 to fulfill my media center needs. I can download music and movies as well as all of our personal files of media. Playstation has 7.1 sound as well as blu rey. I can watch live tv with over 3500 stations or channels around the world. The internet content is so much richer and far more entertaining then cabel tv or satellite. Now if I could only pair my droid phone apps to my tv all would be right in my obsessive quest for the need for speed of INFORMATION and SEQUENTIAL ORDER!!!!! Oh ya about the playstation, I’m not even a gamer an this unit will probably never have the joy of doing what it was originally designed for.
