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.

PDA phones were an obvious and natural progression given that both PDAs and phones already existed.

I think there will definitely be an embedded media OS battle in the near future but it will be spread across a range of devices including blu-ray players and receivers. As for that battle resulting in a standardized platform for developers......not likely.
