"Adomo wants a place in your home. Not on top of your TV, or as a firewall or gateway hiding in a closet. What Adomo wants, is to fill your home with a network of low-cost, easy-to-use information appliances. All over the place. And they will all have Linux inside."

"Adomo's goal is to transcend the boundaries of the PC revolution, by making home information appliances as easy to use -- and ubiquitous -- as microwave ovens. And in doing so, they intend to depart from some prevailing conventions. Instead of simply sticking with popular notions of the roles of PCs, gateways, firewalls, and set-top boxes in homes of the '00s, Adomo began with a clean slate, asking: "What do family members really want?"

"Adomo is redefining the way families use information in the home," proclaims a statement on the company's website. "Imagine if all your important information . . . addresses, phone numbers, calendar, birthdays, music were always there, where you were . . . available at the touch of a button. Information could adapt to our lives, not the other way around."
