When one decides to throw a party, one of the important things to plan for is music. Depending on your setup, running it through your home theater system can be the best way to do it, since those tend to be the best speakers in most people’s houses. The other nice thing is that you can use the TV to display the music info for your guests to see. If this is something you like to do, then you’ll love SLAG-FS.
For those wondering about the odd name, it actually stands for Simple Little Audio Gadget – Full Screen. This is a free Windows 7/Vista gadget that can sit quietly in your sidebar and play music. However, when you’re connected to a TV or other large display, you can run it in full screen, and it will show most of the important information about the track, such as the artist, album, and playlist it is in. The idea is that with only the most relevant information on the screen, it is much easier to see from across a room.
