For those of you still
scratching your heads over what exactly you might use a $700 UMPC
for, Microsoft is working on a version of Media
software to allow you to touchscreen your way through TV, music, home automation, or whatever you
use your Media Center PC for. So far there's no date for when we might see this software, but Todd Rutherford,
Microsoft's program manager for eHome Control, says it's a sure thing. We guess it depends on your style if you'll use
this thing as a glorified remote control, or as a primary viewing device, but at least now it'll do you a lot more good
than just some oddly shaped Frisbee with a touchscreen.
