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.

>Sony is building more and more cleverness in their tv's, wouldn't that make a diff here?

No, because if that Sony solution is Sony-only, then it's pretty much useless. Having some access to youtube, or even Netflix, doesn't cut it. What's required is a full platform, with developer tools, and compatibility across all ranges of new TVs.

This will work perfectly well with the ordinary HD TV that you could buy today.
