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?

I really don't want to see you in your TV watching state.

Especially not in HD.


This is pretty much what I was thinking: when I am at home I am usually naked all the time, I only put something on if I have to pop outside to feed the animals or if I am expecting visitors. As such video calls just don't really work for me, I don't want to cause the calling party any nightmares ;)

Nah, I prefer the old audio-only style =]
