The system works by tapping into your existing network protocol so there are few distance limitations. If you have a powerful router your laptop could be anywhere in the house. With a lesser one, you can still probably park it about 50 feet away, according to Stuart Golden, President and CEO of the startup. What this spells for the user is a seamless way to free up media. Hulu becomes a (even more) viable alternative to cable. Pandora gets easier. YouTube is liberated. It won't work with Blu-ray for copy protection reasons, but that seems a scant constraint. A simple, clever system that, at least in demo form works exactly as promised. Now if you'll pardon me, I have to return to the floor to search out a poultry-pot workaround.
