Google Media Server

Google just released a media server gadget which enables UPnP sharing to your DLNA devices … things like your PS3 and XBox as reported by Crunchgear. I’m thinking this is actually far more about mobile then set top box though that’s likely to be both a source of content and a display end point.

Given what Nokia has cooking with Home Sync, the rumored iPhone wifi sync and AppleTV, this year is looking good for consumers to get a handle on media – both at home and on the go.

The iPhone definitely stepped up the bar for device sync and I’m looking forward to seeing where this all nets out. Anything that makes it easier to sync content to and from your mobile device as well as within a home network is a good thing in my book. The more functions we cram into things the easier it is for them to become islands and the main reason capture and create media really is to share.
