Home Automation: Mystery, Mayhem, or Magical?

Home Automation: Mystery, Mayhem, or Magical?

“Help!  Help!  Jane!  Stop this crazy thing!”  -  George Jetson, The Jetsons, Theme Song.

The Jetsons was an American animated TV sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera originally airing in the 1960s.  The Jetsons were a futuristic family living an innovative utopia of elaborate robotic contraptions and whimsical inventions.  Their home has numerous push-button, Space Age-envisioned amenities which some helped and some did not. George Jetson's workweek is typical of his era:  an hour a day, two days a week.  Daily life is leisurely, assisted by numerous laborsaving devices, which occasionally break down with humorous results.  Despite these conveniences, everyone complains of exhausting hard labor and difficulties living with the remaining inconveniences.  Sound familiar?

The system now allows sounds to travel around the room instead of directly at you like with older speakers.

How is Kaleidescape staying in the game after the lawsuit?

Last month, I wrote an article expanding the news that Kaleidescape came to terms on their lawsuit with the DVD Copy Control Association stating that after November 28, 2014, all Kaleidescape systems sold would only be able to play your favorite DVDs discs but they cannot be copied to newly bought systems. As for Blu-ray Discs, they can continue to be copied to the system but require a copy of the disc to reside in the Kaleidescape Disc Vault for playback options.  All systems bought before this date are “grand-fathered” in and will continue to be able to copy discs to the system. With these new changes to their system in the future, Kaleidescape is trying to find ways to stay relevant in this industry....
