Home automation and in the UK
Ah, at last, more than just a few scraps of info on home automation in the UK. I have been, for years now, monitoring this market which always seems to be overseas but has matured enough to be coming to the EU and here in the UK. The podcast was in depth with a Mac specific programmer, one of very few!, and of all important (and illusive) hardware for the UK market. Now this will be taking off with interest from the big players, and its god to get a supply of info on it. Very informative!
The audio podcasts are well above average for informative content - great !
The video shorts on particular products are very good, too - try the Drobo one, for example.
The web-site has reviews & more - see the Drobo review, there, as an example.
