Kickstarter: The playGo AP1 AirPlay and DLNA Wireless Receiver If you want an AirPlay receiver on the cheap, you can’t go wrong with Apple’s AirPort Express, a $99 dollar portable wireless access point (great for an apartment or traveling business person) that has a 3.5mm minijack for an audio or optical connection to a pair of speakers or your home receiver. For another hundred bucks (as a part of being an early adopter), you could fair even better with playGo’s audio-centric playGo AP1: an AirPlay and DLNA receiver that can output lossless audio through analog RCA outputs, a 3.5mm minijack, or TOSLINK to your preferred thumpers of choice. The playGo AP1 supports AAC, Apple Lossless, MP3, FLAC, WAV, and WMA files over AirPlay, Microsoft Play To, USB (i.e. directly connected to your iPod or iPhone), UPnP and DLNA. A fast ethernet port can provide network connectivity from your router or wireless access point, or you can connect wirelessly on B/G compatible wireless networks.

Somewhat late comes my list of the best albums of the last decade, but I was occupied alot the last couple of months and was rarely even online, plus I wanted to carefully check out all the albums released in 2009 to determine if something is suitable for the list (haven't unfortunately found anything exceptionally good), so better late than never I guess. I just want to say that in my opinion this last decade was amazing when it comes to electronic music. Technology really created a space for further experimentation and innovation and a lot of talented producers appeared who had an ability to fill up that space.

That feature is due in the next release of XBMC (Eden), but that isn't due until sometime around the end of the year.
