LocationFree coming to Mac
Sony has announced a licensing agreement with Kaga Electronics which will bring "LocationFree" with mobile products to Mac users. Kaga Electronics will be developing the software for Mac OS X, and will connect users with Sony's "LocationFree Base Station." "LocationFree" can transmit content to PCs, the PlayStation Portable (PSP), or a dedicated LCD monitor after connecting the "LocationFree Base Station" to a TV antenna and/or DVD recorder. The plan proposes a new way to enjoy TV, such as watching programs or video content via a wireless connection via the internet. "As telecommunications infrastructure advances, Sony will increase licensing of LocationFree software in order to expand the number of compatible products. This will create a life style where TV and video content can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere."
