Digital Lifestyle News: AppleTV Hacks and Pandora for Mobile & Living Room

Over on our new network blog, last100, Steve O’Hear has covered two interesting developments in the ‘digital home’ space. Firstly Steve posted that there has been quite a bit of development activity around AppleTV – but not by Apple itself, rather by hackers. Wrote Steve:

“…[the hackers] have been hard at work building plug-ins and workarounds to add lots of new functionality. In fact, so much progress has been made, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Apple purposely left the door unlocked, perhaps to learn from these early adopters about what future direction the product should take.”

Steve reviews an RSS reader for AppleTV, Sports Scores (a simple plug-in to display sports results), an Internet Radio plug-in, a YouTube plug-in, and more.

In another post, last100 looks at the recent news about personalized Internet radio station Pandora, which this week announced a version of Pandora for your mobile and living room. Pandora is calling this its ‘anywhere’ platform. Steve wrote:

“At yesterday’s announcement, the company unveiled two new partnerships: Sonos for streaming Pandora around the home, and Sprint for mobile. Both the mobile and home streaming versions fully integrate with Pandora on the web, so for example, everything you create, rate or bookmark on your phone, also appears the next time you’re back on the web, and vice versa.”
