I would like to be able to learn by downloading information into my brain - just like they did in _The Matrix_ movie. How soon can we get on that?

Thank you for the question. We are a global company, so we gauge interest on a worldwide basis instead of just oen geography. Project Dalton has been on Autodesk Labs for some time to give people a chance to share their opinions. There has been strong interest in Project Dalton, so it is possible that it could be integrated into some of our offerings in the future.

I am not sure I understand things at all. I am not of the flow at all. http://labs.blogs.com/sonos_flow_question.png So given the "wireless" nature of this instead of Bluetooth. 1. Sound starts in the TV. 2. Sound travels to the Playbar via the optical cable. 3. How does sound get to the subwoofer? 4. How does sound get to the rear speakers? Which piece is the transmitter? It seems like the Playbar would transmit to the BOOST which sends it wired to the Linksys. The Linksys then sends it wirelessly to the subwoofer and rear speakers. Would it kill SONOS to create a flow diagram (including wires and protocols)? IF I understood how ut worked, I would know where to locate the components.
