The Beeb says 2007 is shaping up to be the year of a new media revolution - and one family in Gloucestershire, in the UK, is going to be at the cutting edge.
So auntie is fitting out the Boston family with the kind of kit you might need to take full advantage of a world where all the media you want arrives in digital form down your phone line. The aim is to find out whether this changes the way the family uses media. The Bostons goodies are:
Samsung 37inch HDTV
Belkin Wireless router
Acer Aspire iDea 500 media center PC
Sonos wireless music system
Kodak wireless digital photo frame
Umm - having spent far too long getting to grips with the complexities of my so called smart phone - I can only hope they have a little IT man. Every home should have one.
