John from OziMac has posted a review of the Elgato EyeHome Media Centre:

As I’ve now come to expect from Elgato, the out of box experience was great. The product has the same industrial design as the EyeTV, which is great. I was a little disappointed that Elgato chose not to include the standard Yellow, White and Red cables to hook the unit up to my TV, but I guess it’s excusable given they also offer other connections like SCART and Optical Audio. They do give you an ethernet cable and the power adapter obviously! There is also a similar remote to the EyeTV comes with.

Google SightseeingI am currently hooked on Google Sightseeing, a Web site that takes you to the best tourist spots in the world via Google Maps’ satellite imagery. Their moto is “Why bother seeing the world for real?” Interesting locations include: Crater Lake (the deepest in the U.S.), the 32-story Memphis Pyramid Arena, Cape Canaveral and several Nuclear power plants. Kind of like looking at Sim City but real.
