We find it somewhat amazing that things we saw on TV and read in sci-fi books only a few years ago are possible now. Control4 has released its Table Top Touch Screen for whole house automation. With a simple interface, you can control your home theater, multi-room music, security, smart lighting, temperature control and more by Ethernet or WiFi. The screen has a 16x9 format and four customizable buttons and has optional access to online Rhapsody. Look for it to come out sometime this month. By the way, if you are not the tabletop type, the touchscreen is available in a wall mountable model.

Now that electronics are becoming more affordable, think about setting up your tunes with more than just your iPod and mini-speaker or video on more than your old TV. Cisco's Linksys has always provided quality products. Here are some of latest wireless Linksys wireless gadgets for those who have basic systems or newbies to the brand.

A good sound system can cost you thousands, but the

We think you will get so hooked that you will have tunes in every room in your house (including the bathroom!) The basic system is $549.99 with free shipping included.

Out this week is the
Home Audio Docking Station
for iPods and MP3 players. At a size of 5 x 8.9 x 1.3" and a weight of 8 oz., the system connects by DMC250 Director in your existing Cisco home system. Included are adapters for several different iPods. The station is available for only $79.99.

Also unveiled this week is the truly cool wireless N Home Audio Music Player Extender. Hook it up to your existing stereo, home theater receiver, or surround sound system and your entire family can get access your own tunes or millions of those on the Internet. It includes an IR remote or you can order a
Controller
for remote access in another room. At a price of $299.99, think about your teens' happiness when you bring this one home.

Now available for pre-order is the
Linksys Stereo Speaker Kit
. These bookshelf speakers can up your stereo to surround sound or simply improve on your current ones. They have 3/4" neodymium silk tweeters and 4" high-Gauss woofers. Add to that tuned ports and gold-plated terminals and a price of $149.99 for the pair.

Of course, the best recommendations come from those who already have, so if you are one of those who own a Cisco Linksys System, we would appreciate your input!
