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 never said that we don't have the technology to do it. However, no one is doing it right now. Not this way. This is why I said when this guy mentioned WebTV, which was released 10 years ago, that back then they didn't have the right tech. Today we do. But for this to take off, it must come in a single package, it must be integrated. It's not about building HTPCs, buying a Boxee box that only does 1/5 of what I'm envisioning etc.

Basically, today we have the tech, but no one has made the work to bring all the functionality needed in one single product.

Agree on the single, integrated product.

Totally disagree that the end-product should be a TV.
