The networked home might become a bit more networked with the introduction today of HP's updated version of the MediaSmart server for the home.  HP announced the launch of the product today, which is capable of managing data from both PCs and Macs. It connects to an HDTV television set.  Gizmodo has an extended story up with photos.

In May in Los Angeles, I interviewed HP's Carlos Montalvo about MediaSmart and the value in networking digital devices in the home. 

Update: 12/30 There's been quite a lot of coverage of this development, check out Techmeme.
