The DVD is dead! That's what video rental service, Netflix, is basically telling everyone. Why is the old optical disc dead? Because it's getting in the way of streaming video.
How do you create a seamless bridge between your smartphone, laptop, desktop computer and HDTV? With Wi-Fi, of course. Techies have been enjoying devices that talk to one another on their home networks for years now, but your average Jack and Jane, who have all their media files sitting on their desktop or worse — scattered across their hard drive in a maze of folders — probably don't even know that it's possible to connect all their devices together, let alone make it as headache-free as possible. That's where Twonky comes in. It's an app for Android smartphones that promises to make accessing your media as effortless as possible. Quite a tall order — it'd be a dream come true if it could pull it off.
