We are in love. Can we say we are in love? Toshiba's new 37LZ150 MetaBrain (don't ask) 37-inch LCD TV has a network connection (but seriously, what doesn't these days? Not that we're complaining…) for streaming video off your network. We know, it's all that, but they didn't just stop there; it also acts as a proper host itself, and has integrated browsing software so you can get online without the fuss and muss (however small) of an MSN TV 2-like device—we specifically said TV internet wasn't going to be good until it was high-def and on a super fat pipe (you know the Japanese have fiber to the home, right?). If you get email while watching a show, you can pull it up without interrupting your programming. And to sweeten the deal, the TV can record shows (presumably to networked drives) on schedule or by sending it an emails with instructions on what and when to record (in case you forget). And it has an SD port for transcoding MPEG4 video, so you can record your favorite shows as you please, and then watch them on the way to work with your cellphone (assuming it can do that sort of thing). Anyone else feel like they're living in the future?
