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?

Opening up to others and allowing a corporation into your living room with a camera and a live net connection are completely different things.

I don't think anyone has stuffed anything up for people like you Eugenia, there are plenty of ways to video chat now without making it the norm on your TV.
