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?

Amen!

I carefully mark my meetings that will be using video because, quite frankly, I remain partially nekkid all day long while I am working (from home). ;)

I get dressed when I walk out into the kitchen for coffee at some point and my daughter yells at me "Daaaaad! Will you get dressed?!" ;)

Right now I am about to bless my neighborhood by walking out to get my newspaper wearing nothing but my raggedy paid of old cut-off sweat-pant shorts. SEXY!

LOL!
