Thread Starter 

I was very surprised to look at my DHCP pool last night and see close to 20 IP(V4) addresses taken. First I thought that my router has been hacked.

 

Then I started counting:

1 Macbook Pro, Macbook Air

1 Ipad, 1 Android 7" tablet, Ipod Touch.

2 Iphones, Nokia E51.

2 DVRs + Tivo

Xbox360, HTPC, DVD player (Oppo95), PS Audio Bridge.

2 Win7 PCs (1 gaming, 1 office)

1 Dell laptop (wife work).

1 NAS, 2 wireless printers (Laser  + MF Inkjet).

 

How they proliferate! How long before devices currently in the analog domain (e.g. amps, speakers, turntables etc.) joins the trend?

So far I think I'm probably in the lead:

3 MacBooks
1 windows server
4 squeezeboxes
4 proliphix ip thermostats
2 iPhones
1 blackberry
1 kindle
1 iPad
1 Nas
1 apple time capsule
4 sagetv extenders
1 xbox
1 AT&T microcell

25. There may be more, but can't think of any off the top of my head...

post #11 of 27

4 iPhone 4's

4 MacBook Pro's

1 Droid

1 iPad (1G)

1 AppleTV

 

Does AppleTV count? I think that connects to our WiFi. My sister, my brother-in-law, my mom, and I have iPhone 4's and my aunt has the Droid. My aunt, my mom, my brother-in-law and sister(they share one), and I have a Macbook Pro each. My sister owns an iPad(which she got for free) and she has AppleTV as well. That's a grand total of 11. Haha. We used to be a Blackberry family, but when the iPhone came to Verizon, we jumped off that ship. Jeez, I hated Blackberries.

Holy crap, and I thought my:

 

2 iPads

2 iPhones

ATV

2 MacBook Pros

Mac Mini

and PC

 

connected through an Airport (soon to be Time Capsule) were bad.  I use wired connections where possible, however, as there are so many wireless points where I live everything is screwy, even on wideband.

It seems that head-fi is a place where we can find people just like us, whether it is about our love for music or just our tech indulgences.
