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.
