Timely WSJ reality check
A more capable crop of gadgets is emerging to bring video from the Internet to television sets. The question is -- will consumers care?

It could also hang over next week's Macworld conference; Apple Computer Inc. may say more about a $299 device -- first discussed in September under the code name iTV -- that allows TVs to wirelessly retrieve movies and other digital content that users have downloaded onto personal computers.
