You do not need a crystal ball to see the future... Those screens you mentioned do exist allready ( on a primitive stage, but they do exist. ) I believe that the computer in the future will became so needed inside your home, as it is your kitchen or your fridge. And it is for sure that it will be the central control machine in your home, as it will be a stereo set, a TV, a entertainment machine etc...

computers integretad into houses already exist.
hell even BELGIUM's house of the future has this (computers everywhere)
most of it is voice controlled (voice controll works surprisingly well)
now it even has a computer in the fridge
every product has a chip and, when asked, the computer in the fridge will scan the fridge for the special chip (like when you go to the supermarket they'll scan chips on the products to know how much it costs) and if it doesn't find it the computer will warn you that you are, for example, all out of milk.

Most supermarkets here already have internet-deliveries (they are delivered in a few hours)

And with the way cellphones are evolving it will certainly not take 20 years before we're able to go online everywhere we want.

no I think the changes in 20 years will be much bigger than that.

I can't say the tesco online delivery service is reliable when it comes to the right goods...

Yeah most of those systems already exist but few are reliable and none are totally intergrated. None of us live in the house of the future also. You guys should check out a device from Archos, the AV500. It will be out by the end of the year and it is the most advanced PDA on the market when it does.

well I was simply imagining how the house of the future would be in 20 years or so.

actually come to think of it I remember reading they were going to update the Hosue of the Future simply because most of the people already DID live in the house of the future.

And it has been more and more true since that time.

A good example is communication. Just look at the development in people habits. In the good old days, you would travel to the person you had something to say too, then came the phone... Then the mobil phone made it unnessecary to even walk into your own house, to pick up the phone. And with the development of SMS, more and more people do not even bother to talk to the other person...

I picture my grandchildren as fat, lazy and spoiled brats...
(And compared to my own grandparents I am a lazy and spoiled brat!)

But to quote Stroggy with his favorite line... :P
"Get back to Topic!"

alright
lets do it your way then.
from now on whenever you have something to say you get over here and say it in my face!
and if I want an old game from you 'll walk all the way to your house to get it?
since the internet is a tool of the lazy man.
A standing monument for lazyness!

anyway
Get back on topic you lazy ducklings!
