Review: Popcorn Hour A-110

I have to say that I am very impressed with the Popcorn Hour A-110, it is a little more advanced then most people think and can even output the right audio to heavy duty A/V equipment. I have had it for over a year now and put it through its paces. Most people are in search a decent and simple media player that will play all the different encodings of stored video and audio, and I think that the Popcorn is the solution. We had to upgrade to higher end Onkyo A/V so that it can recieve the decoded audio through the HDMI wire but that isn’t a shortcoming of the Popcorn, I think its great that it can output all forms. I’m not going to go over all the technical details of the product you can see it here.

Pros:

  • Simple operations
  • Can attach multiple hard drives
  • Outputs Analog and HD to any TV/Projector
  • Compact and simple to transport
  • Analog/Component Video/S-Video/HDMI Video output
  • Connects to the network, and you can manually connect
  • Decent price for product that can cover all the different encodings

Cons:

  • Sometimes you have to manually map the location of hard drives or shared folders.
  • Issues with subtitles when watching Japanese Animation

PERRIER melting by Ogilvy Paris

Set to the music “Waves” by Camille, you can check out Perrier’s new Ogilvy Paris ad (directed by Frederic Planchon) to try and get you to buy their drink. And if that weren’t enough, below are a few more interesting ad shots for the product.

This pretty much reflects the heat that we face in Kuwait on a daily basis and drinking something cool always feels good. I’m not a big fan of carboneted water but if I do drink it would have to be Perrier, I don’t know why but I always feel so sophisticated drinking it, maybe its the bottle.

Black Ox Skadeboard

I’ve have always been a fan of Black Ox from back in the day, and while roaming the vast archives of Vimeo I stumbled upon this fantastic video. I am really amazed how people can put simple videos such as this together, I am one person who lacks the skills to do this but I do enjoy watching it. I prefer the quality of Vimeo movies to that of every other online media such youtube and dailymotion.
