For those of you that are not familiar with Google Play music, it is a streaming music service that keeps all your music in the cloud.  This keeps your music library accessible anywhere that you have an internet connection.  There is also a buffer built in to keep the music playing even if you lose your connection momentarily.  For longer amounts of time without internet connectivity there is a "pin music" option that stores your songs on your device until you decide to "unpin"  them.   App settings allow for varying amounts of song quality should you need to stream in a poor service area.  You can also download songs or your entire music collection to you PC, however, that option is only available a limited number of times so use it only in the off chance that you lose the entire music collection on your hard drive and can't replace it any other way.

You can also play your music via the Chromecast dongle by pressing on the "cast" button in the Play music app.  Currently, there is no date on how long the sale is going to last so I would advise you to get downloading ASAP.

Retron 5 hacked to launch RetroArch and play ROMS off your SD card

It appears that a someone going by the screenname of RetroN Labo on Youtube has successfully hacked the Retron 5 console to run the full version of  Retroarch.  In the video shown, various emulators that are not part of the original firmware are playable including the PC Engine, Playstation One, Nintendo DS, and Wonderswan.  As the stock firmware from the Retron 5 is programmed to load games from an original cartridge when it is inserted, this hack appears to run ROM and ISO files, most likely from the SD card slot built into the back of the console.




In most of instances shown in the video, emulation appeared to run smooth, and the games previewed looked playable. Currently, Hyperkin (Retron 5 manufacturer) is in hot water with Retroarch's creators due to using their emulator cores without permission.  After being discovered, Hyperkin has shared their code, and claims that they have removed any infringing code from their console.  The Retroarch group feels differently.  Details o…

Your Wii's second life as an emulation and media center powerhouse

Lifesperience is now Raycommend, which can be found here:Ray Commend

While the Wii was initially a very popular console for Nintendo, for most people, it has gone unused for years gathering dust.  More powerful consoles and devices have taken its place and even Nintendo themselves have practically abandoned it with many of their own channels going offline over the last year.  Chances are that by this point, your Wii is long out of its warranty period.  If you're willing to take about an hour of your time, you can turn your old Wii into a great emulation station and decent media center for the kids.

The things that you will need to get the most out of your old Wii console are:
