You make a very good point about backward compatability - perhaps this might become easier as we purchase more high tech devices?

It is a strong PR because I do not even understand the full meaning of that word "invisibe" in this context. These things do not work.

The problems stems from the way the high tech industry works and there is no solution to this problem...it always generates new classes of devices and related software which are not backwards compatible...as we "progress" the amount of incompatibility increases not decreases so making the technology invisible is just not going to happen...quite to the contrary it will be more visible than ever...unless you throw out everything you own (dozen of devices, over $10,000 investment in my home alone) and buy new invisible gear...which will be invisible for a year or two ;-)

invisible technology? comon...I have dozen or so devices at home (2 PCs, 2 iPhones, iPad, iPod, 3 laptops, TC, VCR, PVR) that all require certain level of configuration and maintanace...none of them work fully properly, every has its glitches, in some one email account doesn't work, in soem timing is screwed up, in some storage doesn't work properly, interfaces to TV work or not etc...it is full time IT job to maintain this mess and this is the last thing on my mind after spending 10 hours in teh office working on some other emerging technology...so the current technology is hardly invisble...I doubt the future will be too...nice PR at best, wishful thinking at worse but no substance
