CNBC segment on "Internet Piano" : http://www.cnbc.com/id/15840232?video=714975699&play=1

Very good demo!

Great publicity / free advertisement for Yamaha too, who apparent now also operates a "Disklavier Radio" that allows Disklavier to stream programs off the Internet radio station.

(Now that Yamaha also owns Bösendorfer, got to wonder when that "internet radio" feature will get ported to the CEUS system too, if CEUS were to survive as a system separate from the Disklavier.)

This is just days after I read about security vulnerabilities in an Internet connected coffee pot (!) - what happens when someone hacks their way into your piano at 2:30 AM and starts playing some kind of acid rock or {insert something atrocious here}?

Uhm... put your piano behind a firewall?
Unplug the power before you go to bed?

Why would you connect your coffee pot to the internet?

The above response has to be one of the funniest comments of the decade.
