Last year, in an exclusive interview with Macworld Magazine that centered around the Mac's 20th anniversary, Steve Jobs was asked about the future of computers, television and home media centers. While he stated that he sees a fundamental difference in the experience of watching television and interacting with a computer, "...basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on," he did have this to say when asked about the merging of the two devices via home media centers:
"Well, [computers and televisions] want to link sometimes. Like, when you make a movie, you burn a DVD and you take it to your DVD player. Someday that could happen over AirPort, so you don’t have to burn a DVD — you can just watch it right off your computer on your television set."
Since a DVD over Airport "...could happen," do you think it will? I would love to see such a thing come true.
