If any are provided as “long term loaner units” this will be clearly disclosed in his reviews.

Orb MyCasting now available for the Nokia N800

I have been playing with the Nokia N800 for a couple of weeks and as you will hear soon on MobileTechRoundup podcast #97 James and I are really having a blast with this fun device. Nokia just announced another application that is officially available now for free that continues to extend your media content to the N800 and make it an even more powerful mobile browsing device. The new Orb MyCasting application allows you to access all your digital media (photos, videos, music and TV) that you have stored on a PC connected to the internet with Orb running in the background. I will have to fire up Orb and my TV Tuner card again on my home PC so I can access my media content on the road with the N800. The N800 Orb MyCasting application also allows you to use Orb's Digital Video Record funtionality to remotely record TV programs to your desktop PC and then later play back the video content on the N800.
