Economist starts at home

In its "Business This Week" section, the Economist leads on the home front by covering Microsoft's and Cisco's moves into home entertainment. Sony's foray into spyware distribution is also highlighted.

The home is hot right now and companies are racing to find new ways to entertain couch potatoes.

(Just saw the fantastic movie "Good Night and Good Luck.” I'm glad Edward R. Murrow never lived to see the day when the hot new industry is building entertainment technologies that arguably help to create in society "a built-in allergy to unpleasant or disturbing information...used to distract, delude, amuse, and isolate us"..his gloomy foreshadowing of the decline of television news and intelligent discourse in general)
