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.

I already stream TV over the Internet and I'm sold. I'd love to have a secure apps eco-system on my TV and the ability to do things like home automation and lifestyle activities.

I don't see any future with there being a central "hub" server. At best perhaps a dedicated secure media archive box for personal media like videos, photos, etc.

There's only one problem - the broadband needs to step up about 100 notches. This is the weak link in the chain if you ask me.
