Apple Airport Express

Written by Super User. Posted in Products

Key Features

 

  • Easy Wi-Fi setup using iPhone, iPad, or Mac - Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Express and create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. If you're using OS X Lion, use the built-in AirPort Utility on your Mac. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

  • Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n - AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.

  • Stream music with AirPlay - AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer or iOS device and sends it wirelessly to any connected stereo or speakers in your home (audio cable sold separately). Play music on one set of speakers - or if you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, play your music from iTunes on all of them at the same time.

 

  • Print wirelessly from any room - On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that's made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly, it's like having a printer in every room. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer.

Apple Airport Extreme

Written by Super User. Posted in Products

Key Features

 

Simultaneous Wireless-N Dual-Band Support

  • The Apple Airport Extreme is based on the Wireless-N (IEEE 802.11n) specification and it uses multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) to transmit multiple data streams simultaneously--resulting in data transfer speeds up to five times those of 802.11g wireless networks while also providing up to twice the range. It's compatible with Mac computers, PCs, and wireless devices such as iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch that use 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g technologies.

  • Mac + PC

  • Additionally, some Wi-Fi devices use the 2.4 GHz wireless band (such as the iPhone, iPod touch, and other devices using 802.11b/g). And other devices can use both the 2.4 GHz spectrum as well as the higher speed 5 GHz spectrum--such as 802.11n-based Mac computers and Apple TV.

  • The Airport Extreme operates simultaneously on both bands, without you having to choose one spectrum over the other--enabling your Wi-Fi devices to receive optimal performance in speed and range. Plus, devices that can connect to the Airport Extreme on either band will automatically use the best available band.

  • See how the Airport Extreme delivers fast wireless networking to any home or small business.

Gigabit Ethernet

  • In addition to Wi-Fi networking, the AirPort Extreme Base Station includes three Gigabit Ethernet ports for fast wired connectivity with desktop computers, network drives, and more.

  • Airport Utility

  • Airport Utility on the Mac.

Easy Setup

Launch AirPort Utility and you're just a few short steps away from creating the ultimate Wi-Fi environment. Mac users can access the AirPort Utility located in the Utilities folder in the Applications folder, while Windows users can access AirPort Utility by selecting Start > All Programs > AirPort.


Guest Networking Capabilities

Allow guests to use your Internet connection without sharing your password or giving them access to the rest of your network. Simply enable the guest networking feature using the AirPort Utility application and create a separate Wi-Fi network just for your friends. You can set up this guest network with a different password or with none at all. Your primary network--including your printer, attached drives, or other devices--remains secure.

Sharing a Hard Drive

  • The AirPort Extreme can turn an external USB hard drive into a drive you can share with all the users on your network and access securely over the Internet. This feature--AirPort Disk--is a simple and convenient way to share files among everyone in your family, office, or class.

  • Just connect the external hard drive to the USB port on the back of your AirPort Extreme and all the documents, videos, photos, and other files on the drive instantly become available to anyone on the secure network--whether they use a Mac or a PC.

Wireless Printing

With its wireless printing capabilities, you can plug a printer into the AirPort Extreme, add it to the printer list on your Mac or PC, and start printing--all without a cable tethered to a computer. AirPort Extreme uses the Mac- and PC-compatible Bonjour networking technology to let everyone on the network take advantage of one centrally available printer.

If you want to share a hard drive as well as share a printer across a network, you can connect a USB hub to the AirPort Extreme and attach your devices to the hub. Share both a printer and a hard drive, multiple printers, multiple hard drives, or a combination.

Boxee LiveTV delivers live sports, local news, special events, and shows from your local broadcast stations (like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC)** via an HD antenna -- it means way more stuff to watch on a Boxee device with no monthly fees... so why spend so much on cable TV?



Tailored to Your Couch

  • The Internet gives you the freedom to watch what you want, and the power to choose what you want to pay for. It's awesome. What's not awesome about the internet: no big screen, no HD, no home theater experience, no easy interface designed to sift through the mountains of TV shows, Movies, and content available online. And the real killer: no remote. If only there was a little box that brought the freedom of the Internet to your HDTV in stunning 1080p, Dolby Surround Sound, and had a slick interface to simplify everything and -- wait for it -- a remote to put it all at the tips of your fingers. Too bad nobody has thought of that yet. Oh wait, we did. Haha! Ahem...

  • The Boxee Box, by D-Link, featuring our ingenious two-faced remote. Say goodbye to hunting and pecking for letters on screen, the Boxee Box remote comes with a full QWERTY keypad -- as soon as you start typing Boxee Box's autosearch function starts finding.


Remote app for iPhone and Android devices.

  • Use Your iPhone or Android Device as a Remote

  • We think our two-sided, QWERTY enabled Boxee remote is pretty darn cool, but hey maybe you lose it, or maybe you just like the stuff you already got. No biggie! Use your iPhone or Android-powered device as a remote with the Boxee Box, and get all the cool functions you're accustomed to. Use your voice to search and use multiple phones as remotes. Boom!



Send video from your iPad to your TV

  • Watching video on your iPad and want it on the big screen? Send videos straight to your TV via a Boxee Box so everyone in your living room can enjoy. Now you can go back to playing Angry Birds on the iPad while you watch.


Setup? No Biggie!

  • Plug your Boxee Box into the wall, connect it to your TV's HDMI input and turn your Boxee Box on. Oh, please turn on your TV too, thanks. Make sure your TV is getting the signal from the correct HDMI input -- if it is, you'll see Boxee smiling at you :). Grab the remote and follow the on-screen instructions, and that's it! The Boxee Box will automatically configure your internet connection, tune itself to your home entertainment system, and get you up and running in a flash. Already a Boxee user? Schweeet!! The Boxee Box will automatically import your account. No Biggie!!


Insta-search-ability

  • Say goodbye to hunting and pecking for letters on screen, the Boxee Box Remote features an easy to-use navigation button on the front and a full QWERTY keyboard for text input on the back. Quickly and easily input URLs and account information. With its Smart Auto search function, as soon as you start typing, Boxee Box starts finding.


See What Your Friends Are Watching

  • One of the greatest things about the Boxee Box is that if you can't find something to watch, you've got your friends to turn to. Stop watching the same stuff over and over. With the Boxee Box, your friends can see what you've been watching and give fresh recommendations from Facebook, Twitter, and the Boxee network.

  • And it goes both ways. If its on Boxee and you like it, you can recommend it to anyone -- TV shows, amateur youtube videos, movies, and more. With the Boxee Box, you're pretty much free to be that guy: recommend anything you've ever watched to everyone.


Less Mystery, More Machine. TV on Your Terms.

  • Never be limited by what you can watch and when. The Boxee Box makes it easy to choose the TV shows you want to watch, and most importantly, the ones you want to pay for. And with over 40,000 TV episodes from your favorite networks instantly available -- that's a lot to choose from. The Office, Family Guy, Entourage, True Blood, and much more.

  • If we can't find it for free, the Boxee Box will connect you with premium options who can, instantly. Get tons of free stuff, and never pay for the stuff you don't want to watch. Easy.

boxee youtube

 

  • If you can watch it on your computer's web browser you can watch it on the Boxee Box, only better. Our browser is similar to IE or Safari, but optimized to work with a QWERTY remote and your HDTV, seamlessly. University courses, panel discussions, TED Talks, Current TV, Stanford Online, FORA.tv, whatever -- the Boxee Box delivers all your favorite web-videos and web-only content, no matter how obscure they may be, straight to your TV set.


Get Into the Game

  • Why sit on the sidelines when the Boxee Box offers apps to ring the bell of even the most diehard sports fan? Start by taking a courtside seat with NBA.com. Follow your favorite teams. Watch video highlights and get live game updates. Or check out player stats, and sift through league standings. Big on baseball? If so, MLB.TV is a guaranteed homer. Now you can keep up with every club, and be the hero of the block by hosting all the out-of-market games, live and on demand. As for those who need a good slap shot to send them off, NHL GameCenter LIVE is all that and a bag of peanuts. Watch up to 40 live out-of-market games every week. Plus, get unlimited access to the NHL Vault, featuring condensed and full-length replays of over 100 classic NHL games.

We're adding new apps everyday and already have hundreds to choose from. Sit back and put your feet up, because with our remote your favorite Apps are now at the tips of your fingers.


Give Your Wallet a Break

  • Think about it: your cable bill is probably about $80 or more per month. You get 500 channels -- some are great, most have a ton of commercials, and you only watch a handful of them. The Boxee Box model is simple: Buy the Boxee Box once, and get instant access to all the entertainment the web has to offer, forever. No rules. No contracts. No monthly fees.

Say Goodbye to Files and Folders. Say Hello to Boxee.

  • Not only does the Boxee Box give you access to thousands of TV shows and movies from all over the Internet, it takes your personal video, picture and music files from your hard drive and home network somewhere they've never been -- your HDTV. The Boxee Box works with virtually any file type (MP3, MP4, .jpeg, .avi, .mkv) and makes it easier to sort through than ever. If you can create it, the Boxee Box will play and organize it. Automatically download all relevant artwork and info and simplify all your digital stuff with big, colorful thumbnail photos in a TV-friendly interface you can access with a remote. You're friends will be impressed, or jealous. Probably jealous.


Turn Your TV Into a Jukebox You Can Share

  • Your MP3 files are organized and simplified and ready to share with your friends, anywhere on the Boxee network. And with our Pandora App, you can create unlimited radio stations by genre, artist, or song you can also share from the comfort of your couch.
