Apple's potential in home entertainment/content market

Speculative article on Apple's potential to dominate home computing, beating Microsoft and HP. Interesting that in the list of existing and future products and services that would put Apple in this position there is no explicit mention of the mobile phone:
  • Apple Macintosh home PC
  • Apple TV digital media extender
  • Apple Store
  • iTunes and its successors
  • Apple home server product
  • AppleSound universal music controller
  • Network-enabled gadgets
  • In-home installation services
I can see why not, but it's an interesting omission - still compartmentalising the phone and other ICT - particularly as smart phones currently have more computing power than set top boxes.
