Well the next logical technology to come will be for Power Supply Units to come with built in networking so that your network cable is the power cord. You plug your computer into the wall and your online. I believe that is part of the Smart Grid initiative? Future looks bright.



Heh, so I can finally toss my old P3 media-server out the window? Well, I'm not sure... while this seems like a sound idea, the problem is actually being able to manage the device. Will I be able to SSH into it or use a remote desktop app? However, seeing as it'll be running some form of Linux, I'll assume that it'll be possible and it's one gadget that I won't have to justify the price tag of to my girlfriend.

So it sounds to me that cloud computing has made the jump to home-based cloud operating system. Not a bad idea, and it was just a matter of time before it was realized.


Gotta kinda put the shivers in Microsoft though. If this catches on, and nothing is available to support MS kernels, then there's another market share they lost to Linux. However small it may be.
