In the yeeeeear two thousand... and ten, are we seriously still restricted to the demands of physical connections to get our HD fix?

We might have to take the WirelessHD group's claims of mass adoption pricing more seriously now that VIZIO has made plans to integrate 60GHz chipsets from SiBEAM into its XVT line of LED backlit LCDs.
