Wireless Receiver for the Xbox 360 from China has arrived.
Wireless Receiver for my Xbox 360 controller (Sometimes referred to as a wireless dongle) from China is one of those tools that has become more and more relevant in the gaming industry with console ports and couch co-ops.

Airplay (or in previous revisions from apple this protocol was called “AirTunes”) audio is the ability to transmit audio from your smartphone device (The Apple I-phone does this natively and android users can actually download a plugin protocol for this) to another device which is hooked to a home stereo system. I know there are countless articles talking about how it’s done. But since this is my blog I sometimes use my blog as just a random dump on how I get things going so in case I forget with my countless other projects I don’t have to look for a particular site to show me how to get it working again. It’s just annoying to find a site that talks about it just to have it disappear on you. So! Without further delay, my short little guide on how it is done.
