the "mythical convergence box"

"Many people have described a "convergence" between personal computers (PCs) and consumer electronics devices, suggesting that a single device will take on more and more of the functions that were traditionally separate. Unfortunately, the convergence process many entertainment companies have in mind tends to remove some of the openness and user control that has made the PC valuable."
