Wired vs. Wireless

By Richard M. Sherwin
Tired of living amidst tangled cables? Or not ready to trust the wireless tech? Two A/V veterans take up the argument.


The major audio-video accessory companies fear that the big CE manufacturers have finally delivered on the age old promise of "No New Wires."

Or I should say, we possess, every latest electronic thing-a-ma-jig that comes on the market. And I mean everything: MP3 players, storage devices, fax machines, printers, computers (Mac and PC / desktop and notebook), electronic book readers, HDTVs, streaming audio-video and video games. Did I list them all? Probably not, but that's all I can remember at the moment.


Is this a good thing? Well, yes. And no. Yes, I can impress everyone who steps into my home. I'm used to hearing Wow, you have that?! Already?! Didn't know it was out yet! And no, I have to warn whoever comes over to be careful where they walk. That's because of the bane of my existence: the wires. Miles and miles and piles and piles of wires.
