You might think that there's not much further for a high-end low budget home entertainment remote control unit to go than the [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/home-theater-home-entertainment/reviews/324398"]One For All SmartControl that DaniWeb reviewed just over a year ago[/URL] now. However, One For All does not seem to agree as it has just launched the SmartControl Motion in the UK in time for Xmas, complete with the iPhone inspired gesture controls which provide the difference as well as the 'motion' in the name of the device. [ATTACH=RIGHT]23210[/ATTACH]Although the SmartControl Motion we have been playing with did not come with the Sony PS3 adapter that allowed …

Hello, I'm a Freshman in college that's going to majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Right now I'm taking a C++ class and I'm looking to do something funny to a friend of mine. I have been searching the web for some "fake viruses" and whatnot to to play around with him for fun. I joined here in hopes of getting more help on this and other C++ questions. I found this code and I'm looking to add a little more to it. [CODE] #include <windows.h> int main() { int BlockInput; const int TIMES = 50; Beep(50, 2000); MessageBox (NULL, …

Although the Aurora is, theoretically, a portable speaker system it’s not really that easy to lug around with your laptop unless you do away with a slimline carry case and replace it with a small suitcase. The tubular super-woofer, two tennis ball satellite speakers and not forgetting the power cable all adds up to a lot to carry around with you. Especially when it all weighs in at something approaching 1.8Kg. [attach]21181[/attach] Which might leave you wondering just who the Aurora is aimed at then, and that’s simple: people like me who have a laptop which only ever travels between …

If you have not used one of these 'universal' programmable remote control devices for a while then prepare yourself for a shock of stellar proportions: this thing is really easy to use. No, I mean it, really easy. One For All rightly claims that it is just a three button process. The first of those buttons is quite aptly labelled 'magic' because that's exactly what appears to happen. [attach]17970[/attach] Press the 'magic' button, select the type of device you want to control (TV, Set Top Box, DVD, AMP, MP3 or Games Console) and then enter the appropriate generic code for …

News Story The new iPod

Apple has had something of an exciting couple of weeks, it has to be said. There was the announcement of the iPhone and the predictable if misplaced media frenzy that accompanied it. Misplaced because, let’s face it, do we really need another smartphone even if it can play music which, in and of itself is not exactly new. Sure, the design looks good as you might expect, but design and practicality are often poles apart and I will reserve judgment on the latter until I have actually lived with the thing for a few weeks myself. Then, before the ink …

Okay heres my problem, the fastforward and its opposite don't work correctly. I want the user to be able to enter X seconds to ff or go back, but since its a COM and it doesn't provide this function (I think its meant for WPF or WF where you just hold the button as long as you want to ff or go back), is there anyway I can implement this myself. ANYWAYS.... Heres my code. Feel free to use it as your own if you want. If you do make sure to reference to Itunes type class [CODE] using System; …

[url=http://www.starcraft2.com]Starcraft II[/url], which is the sequel to the very popular 'Starcraft' series, has been announced.

In fact, there are still thousands of players on battle.net playing Starcraft right now. Today in Korea after the announcement of Starcraft II, they performed a [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1KnmnFxHoE&mode=related&search=]demo[/url] of the game, and many of the …
