Now get Facebook, Gmail on your TV

Access websites on your TV for free

Well, apparently there's no escaping Facebook.

In fact, there's no escaping Gmail or YouTube either because thanks to Logic Eastern, a company that describes itself as one "that undertakes R&D" to "indigenously provide necessary equipment" to facilitate "convergent technology", all three services will now be available for access on TV.

According to a story published by Business Standard, Logic Eastern has introduced new patented set-top boxes that let you access Facebook, Gmail and YouTube from your television without a dedicated Internet connection. In fact, the company claims, you can exploit this service without having to pay anything over your regular cable bill.

The Business Standard story explains the process behind the technology: Logic Eastern has set up a number of servers which will download data from the aforementioned Web sites on behalf of the users. Thereafter using already existing cellular technology, the servers will push the data to the consumers' TV sets. The end users can navigate the sites using a remote designed for that purpose but the company says that they will soon be making Wi-Fi keyboards also available.

Currently these set-top boxes are available in South Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Nagpur, Bhubaneshwar and Jammu. There has been no word on a wider Western release.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
