Great Primer Article “What the Heck is a Roku (or Apple TV or Amazon Fire) and Why Do I Need One?”

April 15th, 2014 by

I just came across this article from Yahoo!TECH. It’s a good primer into your options for devices to stream videos from the internet to your TV. It covers all the options we’ve talked about in club. I think it’s a recommended read for everyone in our club.

What the Heck is a Roku (or Apple TV or Amazon Fire) and Why Do I Need One?.

Podcast from last week’s meeting (Feb. 25, 2014) is finally available

February 25th, 2014 by

This is late again. Today is Club day, and I am finally posting the meeting from last week. I hope to be caught up this week.

This last meeting we spent some time talking about topics that would make a good article for the San Carlos Wireless (our new local paper.)

If you could not be with us last week, then here is your chance. You can listen to last weeks meeting right here bellow this post, or subscribe to our podcast from the iTunes store (search: The San Carlos Computer Club.)

Thanks, tech on, and I’ll see you all today at 9:15am at Tequila’s for this weeks meeting.

Here is a link to Netflix’s support page on how to add your netflix account to a roku device.

Connect Roku Devices to Your Netflix Account.

However, you’ll need a VPN for San Carlos.  Netflix is not supported on Roku in Mexico.

Wow! What a fun last meeting before I go to Alaska. We talked at length about the new Xbox One, and it’s always-on camera and microphone. This lead us into privacy and security, and a lot of great entertaining stuff.

I am  glad I didn’t miss it, but if you did, then listen here:

Raspberry Pi Now Has an App Store

December 18th, 2012 by

This thing is amazing.

As small as a pack of gum.

Supports USB, ethernet, HDMI, composite RCA TV,  SD card reader, but no Wifi …yet. Now it has an app-store with at least 23 applications available. What a great idea for teaching basic computer concepts at a dirt-cheap price. However, if the apps fly, and the device supports both linux, and HDMI, it’s not hard to imagine that soon these can be used as a media player for your TV.

Read the article here: Raspberry Pi Now Has an App Store

Could these be our next media players?

In the future, will we be able to use a Raspberry Pi to  make a dumb TV a  smart TV?
