Modem, router, answering machine and web browser in one

I like the idea of the Telstra T-Hub, which is pretty much a very advanced touch-screen home phone plus basic web browser. It's very cool, but I think it has the potential to be more. First, it should include a wireless router for home networking. It should also comprise an ADSL modem, cordless phone base station (allowing both VoIP and traditional telephony) and an answering machine. I guess I'd just like to have fewer boxes plugged into the phone point in my kitchen, especially if the one replacement can do more than what it replaces.

PS - BoB from iiNet is another consolidated unit that seems pretty neat.
PPS - I want to own ALL the gadgets.

i want to own all the gadgets too. I would buy this one you are talking about here, but i'm holding out for the one that grates parmesan cheese in three different grain sizes automatically.... any news on this?

No news on that, I'm afraid. If it's combined with a modem/router, I'm pretty sure you could patent it if you're quick enough.
