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?

What happens if you put one of those in your bedroom, and it gets hacked?
Suddenly YouPorn has a year's worth of footage of you and your husband making babies...
I for one, would sue the TV company to no end... Not that it's going to fix anything really...
