Buffalo 802.11ac wzr-d1800h

Buffalo has just released the very first 802.11ac router in the $179.99 WZR-D1800H, alongside the WLI-HD-D1300 wireless media bridge. With speeds of up to 1.3Gbps, the new 802.11ac standard is three times faster than 802.11n, but the only problem is that there aren't any 802.11ac chips installed in any computers yet, so buying the router right now would just mean you are preparing for the future. Luckily, it's backwards compatable with 802.11a/b/g/n standards, so you're good there. The AirStation AC1300 media bridge allows you to connect up to four wired devices to your new 802.11ac network. You can grab both products now.

More Canada-U.S., less anything else at World Juniors

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: NHL,

Mark VisentinThere’s nothing quite like a Canada/U.S. hockey game. This year’s World Junior tournament pitted the two hockey superpowers’ babies against each other in a rematch of last year’s gold medal game, in which the Americans stole top honors in foreign Canada, breaking the hearts – and five year winning streak – of the Canadians. This year in Buffalo, the revenge was cold and strong, albeit one game too early as Canada knocked off the U.S. 4-1 in the semi-final game on Monday night.

Cheapjack Shakespeare: Graphic Novel Play Breaks Records

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Reviews,

Cheapjack Shakespeare PosterThat new Spider-Man musical might want to call Shaun McLaughlin and ask him how it’s done. His play Cheapjack Shakespeare: The Non Musical just opened to a sold out crowd, “the largest fall opening in the history of (Buffalo’s) Alt Theatre,” according to the press release. According to McLaughlin, “Sex, drugs and iambic pentameter has proved a potent draw.”

And competition for opening night was fierce: Friday night’s debut was the kick off of Curtain Up!, the official start of Buffalo’s theatre season. Cheapjack Shakespeare: The Non Musical was competing against 16 other show openings. And first-time playwright McLaughlin emerged victorious. According to the author, “it was a sell out crowd. And they laughed. A lot.”

I’ve written about Cheapjack Shakespeare before. It’s McLaughlin’s adaptation of his own graphic novel, a comedy about a summer Shakespeare company falling apart as they’re beset by infidelity, egos, ambition “and a particularly ill-timed lightning strike.”

Just let them play, but play correctly

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: NHL, Playoffs,

Buffalo-BostonWe’re being bombarded with talk about the staggering number of too many men penalties in the first round of the 2010 NHL playoffs, and some are starting to question the merit of the rule. We’re closing in on two dozen called – about one in every two games. People are asking if this penalty really impacts the flow of the game or should the refs just put their whistles in their pockets and let the boys play?

Buffalo Dice iPod Speakers

Die SpeakerFor all the gamblers in your life, or if you just feel lucky, Punk, Buffalo Japan has designed a dice Speakers for iPod. The BSSP05l is compatible with every model except the shuffle. Available in black, blue, green, red or orange, the speaker features a 1W output and volume control. Look for it to hit Japan first with a ¥2814 (~$33.00) price tag, but we wouldn’t be surprised if this travels for the holiday season.

2006 Holiday Gift Guide: Buffalo LinkTheater Wireless Media Player

LinkTheatre

The Buffalo LinkTheater Wireless A/G Media Player is new in town, but looks to be a winner. The device allows you to stream just about any video or audio format you can think of from your PC to your home theater system. This new model even has a few optimization specifically targetted toward Intel Viiv PCs, so if you have one of those, it’s a plus (though it’s not required.) The device is even compatible with DRM movie downloads from the likes of CinemaNow and MovieLink. Definitely worth it if you store a bunch of multimedia content on your PC, and you want an easy way to get that to your HDTV.

Price: $249 (Compare Prices)
