last100 is edited by Steve O’Hear, and provides news, reviews and industry analysis on products and services related to the digital lifestyle, with a particular emphasis on how the Internet is penetrating the home in an era of ubiquitous broadband access.
What’s in the name?
The name last100 refers to what industry insiders call the “last 100 feet” problem, which is the gap between the typical home’s computer and its living-room TV set. Whilst the ‘connected home’ is a primary focus, we also focus obsessively on other areas of the digital lifestyle, including mobile computing, smartphones, digital music, social media and eBook readers.
