Android tablets make a great remote control for media players. Applications like BubbleUPNP have free versions that let you browse through a music collection and send the music to your media player without turning on your TV. Navigation on a tablet is a lot easier than going through screens on a TV to find the music you want.
After beaming up your photos or music collection, you can access them from all of your devices. And you don’t need to worry about multiple copies on each device and how to synchronize them because there is only one copy that’s accessible to all devices. But better yet, you can take slices of my collections and make them separately available to: friends, family, co-workers, customers, …. Oh, and did I forget to mention that you can do most of this at no cost?
