What you see above is a PlugComputer. It's a home server so small that you can fit two of them into a standard wall outlet. It draws a fraction of the power required by a desktop or notebook. Price: $100.
It's either a dead end, or these things will be ubiquitous in our homes within 3-4 years. Who knows. They are still trying to figure out what to do with it. All I want is a cheap and easy way to browse the Internet and watch Hulu/YouTube on my television. Perhaps in 2011 I'll have a $90 500 terabyte drive hooked up to a PlugComputer to store my HD video.
If I owned stock in a television network I'd be nervous right about now. What happened to printed newspapers is about to wash over television.
