PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I've seen it so many times in the movies and TV: a person wakes up in this futuristic world, walks by his kitchen, and a computerized voice is telling him that someone is calling him. But instead of picking up a receiver, the call is actually a video-call, and his TV is used for the conversation. If you put 2 and 2 together, this is not really that futuristic. Having a camera attached on your TV, and a VoIP SIP or Skype connection with it, is not mad science. So why don't we already have this on our TVs?

If you think that telemarketers are a nuisance now, just wait until you can see the bastards on a videophone call!

Ring, ring, ring...explicit porn pops up on your TV...Sexy naked woman appears...

"Hi honey, I'm Zelda. Wow, you look hot. Want to talk dirty to me and watch me do naughty things? You can, for just US$5 per minute."

I'll pass on this great new technology, thank you.
