Live a Tech life :-)

I was recently watching Apple’s press conference when they released their bunch of new products. Among them, one product caught my attention and that was Apple Tv. Soon my tech greedy mind became full busy thinking of buying one. But the problem with these new technologies is that they don’t work in isolation. Then I started thinking about setting up a tech life keeping in mind, the cost, and ended up drafting a plan, which, I think is great (!) and affordable too at the same time. Its amazing.. (As Steve Job of Apple says) and I m happy to share with you all.

So not wasting any time of yours, lets see the plan. First I have made a list of gadgets with their price and intension of owning them, and then comes the plan as to how to get them together.

 

Gadgets
My Choice
What does it do?
Price
HD TV
I don’t have one in Mind
U know it
Around 35Ks
An Android mobile phone
HTC Wildfire
A Cell phone for connectivity
15000
IP TV
Apple Tv
Stream movies, videos, TV shows from Internet
5000
A Good music player
iPod Touch/iPod nano
A Music player
7000 – 10000
Wireless Enabled Broadband (4Mbps recommended)
Airtel offers variety of plans
An Internet connection
1500 per month
A decent Laptop/ desktop
One from HP..!!
A pc or a mac
35 K
A laser Printer
Again one from HP
Printer
7K

 

Grand total                                                                                                       – 1,36,000 – 1,40,000

Now the numbers alone might scare you, if you plan like I do then money is not a problem (I seriously consider doing this as an one time investment when I set up a new home, i mean cost of new home + cost of u r tech life, !!).

Now lets get in to the plan.

 

  • First thing we need to setup is an Internet connection, as its a base of our plan. It is really necessary to have it wireless just because we can use the same connection among other devices too.
  • Once the Internet is in place, we connect our PC, cell phones etc for our online life.
  • Best of this plan comes now. Connect Apple TV to your HD TV and stream new movies, TV shows, Online videos etc directly on your TV without having to store them 🙂 and hence a happy family!. Connect the same Apple TV to your PC and stream everything else on your HDTV..!! Wonderful isn’t it?
  • We have included an iPod touch in your plan as a music player. But It can do much more than a music player. U can download n read e-books and stream them on TV!! Hell yeah.. Thats fantastic. And do stuffs like video calls etc etc. And If we have a decent printer in place then we can print anything from any device if it lets you to print one..!!
Well I m kind of chilled already with this plan, there more things we can add. Like a game console (If u have kids!!). But the only problem with this tech life is that, everything gets old pretty soon. So to avoid regretting later, always go for easily upgradeable options.

One day soon the Gillette company will announce the development of a razor that, thanks to a computer microchip, can actually travel ahead in time and shave beard hairs that don’t even exist yet

Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.
