Multimedia, AV I'm a couch potato. There, I've said it. I love sitting down and watching sci-fi movies, like any good geek would. And this is an (almost religious) action that hasn't changed for many, many, years. But I feel that we're in for a surprise soon. The way we watch TV and access content is about to change. TV watching will at last arrive into the 21st Century, and the technology giants will be there to duke it out for the reins of this new industry.

Hmmm, Sony is building more and more cleverness in their tv's, wouldn't that make a diff here? And both MeeGo and the KDE Plasma team have this 'device spectrum' idea (one infrastructure for a range of devices, from mobile to the 'ten foot' interface on tv's). Plasma Mediacenter is coming, and there will be a MeeGo interface for tv's too. And it is not unlikely (and would be smart) they will work together on this at one point in the future...

Plasma's tech is incredibly handy for this. The Plasma Mobile interface is proving this already, and what they currently have in the Media center area is pretty interesting (but far from production ready).
