I disagree completely on the coolness factor. Nothing but low-quality video and even lower quality audio. Interest here is less than zero.
I also don't believe that streaming has any future unless or until our internet architecture is totally re-designed and true broadband is available at reasonable cost without download caps or restrictions.

Just because you wouldnt use it doesnt mean its not a useful feature. Did you go to CES this year? Every manufacturer has a protoype player with net-streaming.

More important than anything along these lines IMO is the ability to stream files from our PC to the 83 over ethernet. Including the file types mentioned by Neuro. USB key is just not gonna cut it. It takes too long to copy files to my 16gb Corsair even over USB 2.0. Ability to stream Internet radio stations would be a HUGE bonus.
