Connected Home - Not really

Here is another waste of paper, $AU12.95, water and electricity needed to generate this magazine, BUT no doubt this will be of some benefit to some people.

The magazine primarily features advertising for ipods, set top boxes, LCD TV's, audio amplifiers, speakers and other items that maybe loosely connected to each other, and the only real connection they share to the house is the 240 volts input they require.

One would assume that a magazine with such a title would contain features / products that integrate, for example self opening curtains depending on lighting conditions, or program interfaces that connect C-Bus (Home Automation), that are also programmable from a web interface from say Antarctica.

This magazine is nothing more than an up market JB Hifi catalog.

It's all about Audio / Visual entertainment only.
