Seems like a worthwhile topic of discussion is predictions for 2012. I know a lot of podcast hosts are doing it around now since it gives them a podcast to drop in the hopper while they're off on vacation. Seems like there might be some worthwhile opinions on this forum, so maybe this'll catch a few comments.

I want to "cut the cord" on TimeWarnerCable and opt for a mobile solution e.g Verizon mifi 4G LTE hotspot. I am worried about the 10GB data cap - I stream 2-3 TV episodes on AppleTV and will blow my 10GB data cap in no time with mifi...what are my options?
I can see Google TV being of interest to me, but what's the deal with these guys? the WDTV has such a vast codec support and has Netflix and the chip it has would allow other sites like amazon to be added. enlighten me.
This would make an excellent gift for my parents, aunt and uncles as it should give them access to Gmail/Email and Facebook, in addition to video content. However, rumored prices have it at $300, which would be a major disincentive. DVR capabilities is not a major concern for me. For me, Web Browsing is make or break. Do Roku players, or Apple TV have web browsing abilities/access to the FULL internet?
And you can use a bluetooth keyboard to it. Can Netflix access the video out through the dock connector or is it just for Apple's own apps? And now the Apple Tv makes even less sense.
could use a larger capacity one by now...however, I discovered, if you have a powerful enough PC and leave iTunes open, whatever you were not able to fit on the Apple TV itself, will stream through iTunes off your PC to your TV.....I experience a little lag, but that is probably because I store everything on an external hard drive....so it needs to tell the computer to wake up the external hard drive if it's been "asleep", and pull data from there.....still pretty nice.....but...
