When I took up the offer to write a review on the TVMini Express by Miglia Technology I didn't quite know what to expect.
Technologies develop fast and shift while we as consumers might just not be aware of it.
In hindsight it's all quite clear! I live in the Netherlands, where like most households we have cable television. When I saw a news item sometime last year (I think it was September 2006) I didn't take much notice of it: the normal airwave tv transmissions in our country would stop on December 11th, to be replaced by digital airwaves... I remember thinking something like: "So what?!" And forgot about it, until I received this tiny box over the mail a few weeks ago.
I must say I have learnt a lot over the past few days, and found a good excuse to buy myself a beautiful new little laptop. Now I enjoy clear tv pictures, and sparkling stereo sound with my headphones.
Of course I realize it's a bit over the top to buy a new MacBook only for reviewing this tiny digital marvel at the beginning of the 21st century. I see it as a lovely start on a journey to make it the center of all my digital communication: education, entertainment, keeping in touch with friends and family all over the world...
