    With a wireless docking station Akasa DuoDock X WiFi you can connect at barbecue to your home music collection. One click with your finger on smartphone and you have access to all your albums. You plug phone into friends speakers and play favorite song of the old crew. All of a sudden everybody stopped talking, this moment when the melody begins, this smile on everyone faces, all those memories of crazy stuff you have done together with this music in the old times. Moments like this are priceless in life.

    This is just one of many examples, how you can use new Akasa wireless docking station. Many TV sets, consoles which support Universal Plug and Play technology, can easily connect to all data on DuoDock X WiFi. There will be also no problem for all tablets and laptops with built in wireless adapter. You can have access to thousands of movies and hundred of thousands songs without actually having it on every single device. Do you want to watch new movie in bedroom on TV or tablet? Now you can do it easily without actually leaving your bed. The world becomes wireless. Make a good use from it!

    It's cool, but I bet I cant wirelessly stream a Bluray movie from my room upstairs to my Samsung TV downstairs, the bandwidth probably wouldnt be enough.

    Would be worth a try, it has N wireless, which is pretty fast.

    Well, I wanted to get a NAS for media use anyway, I might just grab one of these instead, throw in a 3TB hard drive and see what it does

    Just realised theres a slight downside to this if you're connecting from a portable/handheld device via wifi

    Since you can only connect to one network via wifi, if you connect to it with any device you ultimately lose your internet connection on it

    I guess the NAS still works out a better buy even though it can be 2-3x the price
