NYT: Navigating Digital Home Networks

NYT: Navigating Digital Home Networks: "The solution included eliminating physical media like CD's, cassette tapes, videotapes and DVD's. Everything, including the writer's photos and home video, was digitized and stored on a hard drive in the apartment and linked to flat-screen televisions, a home theater system, his PC and his color printer.
But what the makeover failed to make clear - as consumer electronics executives and technologists often fail to do in such demonstrations - is how people will be able to retrieve precisely what they want, when they want, from such deep digital wells.
It will require more than a fancy remote control."
