Just a few years ago, connected devices hit the market in a big way.  We saw our first Netflix boxes and streaming capable TVs.  We saw Blu-ray players that could give us movies on demand and receivers capable of streaming from Pandora and other online sources.  Now that those are becoming standard, the NPD Group estimates that we'll reach 600 million connected components shipped by 2015.  In fact, they go one step further and say that that 600 million will all be Wi-Fi enabled.


"Wi-Fi has moved from a nice-to-have feature to a must-have feature," says research VP Frank Dickson.  "it provides the connectivity necessary to support IP-based video content."  In addition to Wi-Fi enabling simple internet connections within the home, it also opens the door for streaming directly from your laptop, PC or even cable box without the need for wires.
