DLNA AirPlay

During the last few days, I have been surprised by the number of people who are talking about AirPlay. They are totally “blown away” by the concept. These are not ignorant people but educated people who know their devices. But I am surprised how Apple is able to sell ideas to them with such ease.I walked into a group of iPhone owners talking about this. I asked them whether they know anything about DLNA. None of them had any damn idea. I said all the devices which I bought in the past 2 or so years, are DLNA certified. This means I can easily stream/transfer content between various devices without worrying about manufacturer.I was one of the people who bought the original iPhone. I also owner the iPod. I was almost on the verge of buying a MacBook Pro before I decided to go for a Sony Vaio. (It is not that I am a big fan of Windows 7 but Viao is perfect for all my needs and I have no issues when I use it with Ubuntu. ). WHat really upsets me about Apple is how it takes an absolutely fine standard and then modifies it so that people can use only the way Apple wants it. All you can decide is whether you want 2G or 4G RAM. I love to customize my devices. Be it my laptop or mobile. I love having custom widgets on my phone. I also can write my own apps and install it without jail breaking the phone.
