    I’ve written before about how the future of TV is IP-delivered. As more video comes on-line, cable packages will get unplugged just like analog phone lines. It’s no longer “if”, but “when”, and 2009 is looking like a good year. A few weeks ago, I finally set up a “real” computer for our main TV: a dedicated Mac Mini, wireless keyboard & mouse, and video camera, all hooked into a large LCD flat panel.
