Hookin' Up The Home For $1000 (Or Less)

By Published on .

Every media planner should be prepping for the day when homes become fully networked media centers. That's not to say that there aren't a few homes already wired to use one gorgeous HD-enabled flat screen to connect the web, TV, music, photos and everything else. But those are the homes of the tech-savvy with cash to burn... until now.

The New York Times' Damon Darlin has set out on a quest to hook-up his home media center for $1000. And he wants to do it through the box stores you and I know best: Best Buy, Radio Shack, Circuit City. The future is within grasp for us and Hewlett-Packard's director of digital entertainment, Jean-Luc Blakborn, knows it: "Connected entertainment is near and dear to our heart. We clearly see connected entertainment as an area where we can grow. It is starting to happen."

My guess is the company that creates the hub for the networked home will have hit the mother lode...
