So you’re watching Brazil score yet another goal against some hapless opponent. Now, you don’t have to get up and go to your computer or your mobile phone to get a Skype call.
It’s the brainchild of Oregan Networks, a software provider from the U.K. The idea is that you run a TV browser that combines satellite and VoIP functionality. While you’re watching television, you can see a Skype window pop up. You can choose to take the call or just let it ring.
The Media Browser approximates a Web interface on your TV, suggesting that it might just run on a PC that just happens to be hooked up to a TV screen or perhaps a very large monitor. No matter how you look at it, you don’t have to leave the couch to answer the phone.
