Home theatre systems are playing an increasing role in our lives as the recession is driving new trends for staying at home rather than spending money on going out. To quantify this, total user spend on AV (including home theatre systems) in 2011 was approximately 2.8billion. Home theatre encompasses everything from television, DVD players and speakers. However the process of installing a home theatre system remains a mystery to most, therefore we have put together a basic guide to assist you with this.

...and it was only 12 stinkin' bucks.
My whole life, I've zealously protected my gadgets with cases and screen protectors, and in recent times, cases with built-in stands for my tablets.
However, the current crop of svelte, super-sexy tablets like my iPad mini and Asus Nexus 7 demand to be used "naked." The iPad mini feels positively industrial, almost alien, due to its cool metal backing and extreme thinness. The Nexus 7 feels familiar yet sporty with its "perforated" rubberized back, which resembles (not coincidentally, I imagine) a leather-wrapped sports car steering wheel.
I don't want to experience these devices with "protection." I want to raw dog these gorgeous gadgets.

Interestingly enough, even though I love TiVo and technology in general, I've never been much for television. Scheduling a time to sit in front of the TV is a pain, and there simply aren't a lot of shows that I really enjoy. Plus, paying for the expanded cable package is far too expensive.
