    maybe i'm being picky but it seems like marketing is throwing buzz words around. In this commercial, a couple is stranded in an airport. it looks like the guy remotes into his home computer, then COPY and PASTES a video onto his local machine to watch the video.

    That won't work if the media companies get their way w.r.t DRM on DVR/WMC recordings...

    Also, not to mention crappy bandwidth on residential connections and mobile too. It'd take 3 hours just to copy the video file, and WMP doesn't let you play a file that's in the process of being copied.
