Gaikai Cloud Gaming

Not the tech industries first foray into cloud gaming but in my personal opinion, the best with a chance successful if and only because of the huge installed user base.

All you need is a networked Samsung television.  Relatively speaking, that is quite a few televisions and given their recent history, just a sample of the future success they will have.  On their website though I found a curious image they chose to use.  It is a render mimicking the design of an HP MediaSmart server.  Which as a local, consumer focused media server is great.  Nowhere near what is necessary for global internet connectivity and hosting.  I just thought it was funny.
