The Connected Home

Back when Powell was the FCC Chair (and we thought that THAT was bad!*) he spoke about the Converged Living Room. Even with Verizon FiOS and its work with MoCA, most folks don't even have a media player in their living room. Certainly, HP has been doing its best to get us there, but 22" TouchSmart is over $1500.

Hardly anyone has remote DVR or lighting or thermostat controls. Nonetheless, Telephony has an issue on The Connected Home. I'm thinking that if you are mainly B2C (or a Residential ISP) new revenue streams can be attained in installing wireless media servers, etc.
