Wireless MP3 Magic
And along these MP3 lines, Gerhard has caught the wireless bug and is looking to "wire" up his stereo with some Bluetooth goodness:
This wirless hype catched me too!
- Buying an old Laptop at eBay.
- Integrate it in my hi-fi system as MP3 player, with some kool desktop backgrounds and ScreenSavers.
- Connect this baby to my shared MP3 filesystem (> 1000 mp3 files) via Bluetooth (Blauzahn on German :->).
- Playing MP3s over this connection.
This stuff is great. Right now it's a lot of home-brew setups like this, but it's going to be everywhere soon. All these cables are going to disappear.
Actually - now that Alex is starting to become mobile (he's squirming now... he looks like a little human Scrat reaching for his toys) I'm starting to get worried about the cables strung here and there and everywhere all over the apartment. A lot of these are power, so I need to consolidate and hide, but others are for my computer or the TV/stereo which could all disappear quite nicely with wireless.
You'll have to post pictures once you get it set up, Gerhard!
