Digital home redux

Interesting article on News.com discussing the increase in internet/network enabled devices... http://news.com.com/Digital+home+redux/2100-1041_3-5222185.html?tag=nefd.lede

I have a fairly well networked home with wired and wireless network, with Media PC, desktop PC's, laptops, Smart Display (remember those?), and XBOX's hooked together, and spend time most evenings working on code, catching up on e-mail, reading blogs etc... I like the idea of having all the devices in the home connected together so that an inbound VoIP telephone call shows up in a Caller ID “toaster” popup on my Media Center, and if I decide to take the call the current program could be paused until I finish the call - what about the rest of the home, how would other devices fit into this interconnected digital lifestyle..
