    I like the idea of the wifi access points and the watching media anywere and all. But I do entirely agree with you there about the part about not too many hi speed access points out and about.

    But within about 5 years, I think there will be a lot more wifi spots around. But then, there are really only three channels you can use in a hot spot are. Which are 1, 6, and 11. So, if say you were in a mall, there would be maybe 10-20 hotspots there. A lot of conflict me thinks. Of course They will most likely have to add some extra protocol that will deal with the extra channels, if not already done so.

    And now the part of reliability. I LOVE the idea about the raid controller rebuilding itself and not affecting pc performance noticably. But having one system for EVERYthing is kind of unsettling. And was if I were poor and had children who wanted to do different things at the same time. I suppose I could get a 7 year old to diliver paper to save up for another 1800 dollar screen, x000 dollar machine, etc.

    But then again, I am undecided about this. Computer speeds do about douple every 18 months or so. And network speeds are getting faster and faster all the time. But ISPs are going to have problems keeping up with the demand for media. Imagine watching a movie at your home werever you go, while your doing whatever. I know some ISPs pay around $10,000 for a simple 10 gigs a day. imagine what a measily 500 users would do to that usage figure.

    I am yet to be convinced about companies having to jump on the train or miss it altogether. As far as my costs go, I'll stick with having to sit and wait for my newly recorded Star Trek episode to convert into Kinoma format so I can watch it on my Palm Zire 71 at work...


    I would like to here some contradicting opinions however. I don't think I have thought of anything. Or feel free to ad to anything I missed... there are a few things I think. ;)
