    great news!

    Nowadays, social networking sites such as Twitter has been a big part of most people's lives. With today's technology, you can access Twitter almost anywhere you are, and with this new feature from Panasonic, you can get to it even in the comfort of your own living room. Most of these devices can be connected wirelessly via WiFi connection, and having a wireless rotuer in your home can really help. Anyway, speaking of wireless routers, if you're looking for a good one, I recommend you check out the Netgear Wireless Router for Video and Gaming. You can use this device to connect computers, gaming consoles, notebooks, or wireless printers, and also your networked home theater devices. You can also use this to stream video and music from a USB drive to media players and DLNA TV's, even without using a computer. Not that's one powerful wireless router for you.
