At CES I visited the NextGen home (see this video), it was built to show off Media Center, Home Automation and Life|ware. Actors took you around the home showing off Media Center in the kitchen, living room and bedroom. After the tour I sat down with Mike Seamons from Life|ware and Scott Evans from Microsoft to talk about the aim of the home and the technology behind it. I also managed to interview some of the Extender manufactures. I talked with HP, Samsung and Linksys to find out more details on their extenders and networked products.

I have email, news items and software to giveaway
