Verizon FiOS TV gets YouTube & web radio access

With HDTVs, Blu-ray players, DVRs, HTPCs and cable boxes all offering YouTube access, it's hard to believe there's a mainstream service out there which hasn't slapped streaming video into their offering.  Ironically - given it's all about having a fat pipe for accessing media - Verizon's FiOS TV is a latecomer to the field, with the service just now updated to support browsing and playback of YouTube content all from the TV screen, together with internet radio support.

Grace Digital Audio Allegro WiFi radio streamer packs Pandora support

With WiFi digital media streamers getting cheaper and cheaper, if you want to charge a premium price then your device needs to offer something out of the ordinary.  Grace Digital Audio reckons their Allegro portable WiFi radio/streamer ticks that box by virtue of its sound quality; the Allegro packs a Class D 8 watt digital amplifier, outputting via a single speaker, and can be run off of mains, regular or rechargeable batteries.

As well as over 17,000 radio stations, 20,000 plus on-demand programs and over 35,000 podcasts, the Allegro can access Pandora for streaming audio.  Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a stereo speaker jack, and you can control Pandora's thumbs up/thumbs down rating system directly from the mediaplayer itself.  The company also offers a free iPhone remote control app.

LOOQS MeFrame WiFi photo frame packs Internet Radio, more

While the LOOQS MeeFrame looks, at first glance, like just another digital photo frame - albeit one that sensibly includes WiFI b/g - what makes it moderately interesting is how it fits into the rest of LOOQS' ecosystem.  The company's line-up includes a media storage device - the MeeBox NAS - and a version that integrates a wireless access point - the MeeBox Router - each of which can stream content to the touchscreen MeeFrame; alternatively it can show content from LOOQS' online MeeChannel portal.

Qisda touchscreen router with YouTube & radio crosses FCC

Qisda touchscreen router with YouTube & radio crosses FCC

Bless the FCC for giving us sneak previews of upcoming devices; today's unusual product is why we love it so.  Apparently the work of Qisda, this multimedia router has an egg-like casing and a small color touchscreen, along with stereo speakers - in a sort of Sony Rolly arrangement, though with less dancing - and WiFi 802.11n.  Around the back you only get one 10/100 ethernet port alongside the WAN connection, but there's a USB port that lets you plug in a 3G modem and get online via a cellular network instead.
