: Revelations during the "Da Blizzard" last week
this writing a regular blog often gets in the way of life, work and play. So Last week while Chicago was getting socked in with a minor 22 inches of snow one day http://www.suntimes.com/photos/galleries/index.html?story=3619960
I spent my time enjoying a rare adult "snow day", however there was a side event that took my attention then took over the rest of my day.
The day that this combination started , my cable provider, Comcast released their updated "xfinity" iPad app.
Ok you going to say big deal, but when I started playing with it I was astounded, Comcast now allows streaming content to your ipad while you are in home location, HD Streaming to my ipad, from cable mainstays like HBO and Showtime to a goodly chuck of cable networks various properties.
So now without leaving the warmth of my desk, I can now stream my favorite shows direct while I am doing something else. I actually watched the latest episode of HBO's BigLove with one earbud in while I was on a Conf call on the other ear (who has wished to do that)
So Comcast seems to get it, I just wonder how long it will take them to allow me to see Live Events or stream the local news to me while out on my deck or huddled against the wind shoveling my car out of the snow.
The Xfinity app can be found here on itunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xfinity-tv/id401629893?mt=8
