All that cabling in the basement

The geek in me squeals like a schoolgirl over this stuff.
The speaker wire will connect into one amplifier and I will be able to play music in the Living Room and Kitchen from a system in the basement. The ethernet cables will plug into a patch panel and I'll be able to route phone or internet to any room in the house.

By my count there are now three devices for sale that take streaming video off the net and pump it straight into your tv. If you want to drool, google Netflix and Roku to see what $99 US gets you.

As a Canadian, I'm ticked that they aren't available to us yet, but i'm patient. Still, the writing is on the wall and the wait won't be too long.
