Why the buzz? This will be the first Wi-Fi Direct Blu-ray player in the world. Why is that big? Well, Wi-Fi Direct, the tech that allows any wi-fi enabled gadgets to communicate and swap media (like video and audio), is seen as the biggest threat to Bluetooth. Stream Netflix, Vudu, and DLNA network content, or play DivX 1080p videos from the comfort of your own living room. Fast P2P communication between all our wi-fi enabled home theater devices? Yes, please.
