Your TV will be hacked - sooner than you think

Lest you thought your living room set was immune to the hacks and intrusions that can plague your PC, there's bad news.  Remember Sony's Playstation problem last year.  Well, the technology gateway for game systems is the same as your TV.  The Internet connection that comes to you today either bundled with or separate from your cable subscription provides the same access for the bad guys as your PC.  The big difference is that you can't buy a shrinkwrapped software package at Best Buy or online to protect it - yet!  Coming soon will be a host of new products that will protect you - probably bundled by your provider or else offered as value added services - for a price, of course.
