DLNA: Can’t We All Just Get Along?
by Kevin Edwards
The International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas provided a glimpse of life in the digital domain. Intel rolled out their Viiv video on demand platform. Microsoft’s Urge is a competitor as well, and players like AT&T Home and others are vying for the prime real estate of our collective living rooms.

On the first of a two part edition of PodTech News, we’ll discuss the DLNA, The Digital Living Network Alliance: an interoperability standards organization made of dozens of industry leaders. We spoke with Michael Alexenko, Executive Director of Technology & Product Planning for Maxtor’s Storage Devices Division, and we began with Intel’s director of marketing for the Storage Components Division Chris Croteau.
