"Yeah, Indrema will do games, the company says. But it will also be a DVD player, a Tivo-like personal video recorder, a broadband-ready Internet appliance, an MP3 player, and, for good measure, a compact PC with a wireless keyboard. And since the whole thing will be open source, users can tinker with it, upgrade its videocard, and run programs written by a cult of developers all over the world."
