Orb, Media Center’s Killer Application

Scobleizer: Microsoft Geek Blogger Well I haven’t tried Orb yet but it seems to keep popping up every where. I guess the idea is that you can stream your media content from your Media Center PC to your cell phone or laptop.

I’m still a little skeptical of the technology but may have to try it out. Personally I’m not usually away from home for extended lengths of time and when I am I just copy media from my MCE machine to my laptop ahead of time so Orb may not be for me.

I’m also somewhat suspicious of how the streaming performance might shake out given that I already have speed and performance problems due to my large digitial library on a Cat 6 wired network at home.

An interesting technology and development though given some good high profile coverage from Scoble.
