we're not there yet...but anyone who thinks the 60" HDTV Flat screen in the living room, will NOT be the center of all things digital in the household in the very near future is sorely mistaken.
Music, photos, games, video, YouTube, FaceBook, Movies, TV, Sports, video phone calls, Apps (travel, finance, etc., etc.,) and yes the "InterTubes" (Internet) all operated from one 7" iPad like remote on a 60"+ screen optimized for websites (or vice-versa).
If it's from MS you will use a stylus (Uggh and it won't work!)...if it's from Apple you will use your finger! And it will be very pretty and elegant!
I already am using my desktop less and less. I'm viewing my den, that is wonderfully wireless and no cables, like a cubicle where I used to "work!" Uggh!
I don't want to peruse possible vacations or new cars or restaurants or movies from my "cubicle!" I want to do it from my living room, in front of my fireplace...in fact, I don't even want a den anymore...let my accountant not only produce and submit my tax returns, let him "store" them, too! And my bank can "store" my statements, etc., etc. I don't want to be bothered. I don't even want regular mail/catalogs/newspapers/magazines! Most of it is JUNK anyway....Keep it all in the "cloud!" I will look at it once a month or once a year on my iPad or better yet, NEVER!
I'll wake up in the morning and view my news, emails, etc., on my iPad while drinking a cup of coffee and updating my "To Do" list! That's how I want to start the day....
PS. Very soon, I can see having only one 50" screen as described above, an iPad and an iPhone 4 and the "Cloud"....don't even want a laptop or a desktop anymore or a desk for that matter or even a mail box! Certainly don't want an ext. HD with all the cable clutter! Uggh! Barely want a clunky, creaky plasticky printer!
