Bang & Olufsen on expensive speakers and mobile

It's CES 2014, and that means every tech company under the sun has made their pilgrimage to Las Vegas. Audio company Bang & Olufsen is one of those companies, bringing their line-up of premium speakers to show off. Back in October they rolled out their Immaculate Wireless Sound line of speakers, utilizing the WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Audio Association) standard to communicate between TVs, receivers, and speakers.

WiSA allows B&O to do something similar to what Sonos does, allowing the user to control which speakers are used to broadcast audio. They can control individual speakers or create groups of speakers with assigned roles. B&O worked with other WiSA members (which include recognizable audio names like Onkyo, Pioneer, and Klipsh) to help build the standard.

CEO Tue Mantoni told us that B&O had for the past decade been exploring building their own proprietary wireless systems, but never had the expertise to make it happen. They are a small company, Mantoni said, serving a niche market. Their strengths are in sound quality and acoustic design, not wireless communications. By partnering with some of their competitors in developing WiSA, B&O got a high-bandwidth 24-bit wireless standard that will work with WiSA receivers, speakers, and televisions developed by any manufacturer. In theory, at least, as B&O is the first to release WiSA gear.

iOS in the Car and how Apple could get past licensing and own every screen in the future

During the Q3 2013 financial results call call today, Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, was asked about the upcoming iOS 7 feature, iOS in the Car and what it meant for Apple. Cook replied that it was "very important". That iOS in the Car would be part of the Apple ecosystem like the App Store and iTunes, like iMessage and Siri. Cook said it was something people wanted, and that Apple could provide it in a unique way, and in a better way than anyone else. He called it a "key focus". But it might just be more than that. Much more.

ASUS Cube Google TV box comes with some limited AirPlay functionality

The ASUS Cube is the latest Android powered set-top box to be released to market. Our sister site Android Central recently reviewed the Cube, and determined that it's the one to buy if you ever thought about getting into Google TV. In some areas Google TV out-features Apple TV, but all in, the experience isn't quite as polished. So, why are we interested? Turns out the Cube has a little party trick -- AirPlay. Sort of.

Lightning to Digital AV adapter could be pushing lower res H.264 because it's not yet capable of streaming raw HDMI

Earlier today we linked to a post by Cabel Sasser on the Panic Blog about Apple's Lightning Digital AV connector, which is basically their HDMI adapter. Sasser had discovered that the adapter provided a less-than-1080p signal, broke it open, and found a tiny computer contained inside. Lots of speculation followed as to why that was, and what might be going on. A comment left on the Panic Blog by "Anonymous Coward", however, implies internal Apple knowledge of the matter, and purports to have the answer. In part, the comment says:

Netflix and YouTube plan to take on Apple's AirPlay with DIAL

DIAL, an open standard form of wireless playback, is being given a rather large push by both Netflix and YouTube. Their hopes are that using an open standard will allow developers to solve second screen playback issues in a better way than Apple's AirPlay. In other words, it wouldn't be a proprietary solution and would be available to anyone who wants to implement the protocol.
