Microsoft touts second-generation media extenders

  • With the holiday buying season drawing closer, Microsoft together with its hardware partners is planning to release several media extenders that would allow users to stream content from their Vista computers to their televisions, in the same way that Apple TV does for Macs. Linksys today unveiled two products which should hit the US market in time for the holidays. Starting at $299.99, the DMA2100 offers a dual-band Wireless-N extender for Windows Vista, whereas for an extra $50 the DMA 2200 adds an upscaling DVD player.
