Parks Associates recently conducted a study that concluded that 2.5 million North American broadband households will pay an extra $100.00 on their next TV if it is Internet connected. VOD is the top attraction, while others want on-screen widgets and access to computer content. This is proof positive we are becoming a networking world slowly but surely and companies such as Samsung, who have 3 new lines of connected TVs (such as the one above,) will undoubtedly clean up in the future. Read the entire report via the link.

URC PSX-2 Does More Than Your iPod Can

urc-psx_2.jpg

The Universal Remote Control's PSX-2 is more than your average dock. It has hundreds of IR codes that not only cover every one on your iPod or PMP, but has some that aren't, such as alpha searches and EQ command settings. Connect to a TV and get metadata like cover art, songs, album and artist. Shortcut keys have access to genres, playlists, music videos and podcasts and there are 12 different shuffle options. An HD video output means you can hook it up to your HDTV and it can sync with your computer on a home network. URC also has an optional wireless keypad and touchscreen that can be used en lieu of a television making your house even more connected. The PSX-2 will debut with a $399.00 price, high for a normal dock, but not so bad for a super-system.
