that's the problem for early adopters. they should be aware before buying and be one of first owner on the block. if you look around you'll see almost all features doesn't take advtange of internet access or pip. i don't consider it a major loss. sony already announced lower price blu-ray players end of 2008.
same idea when you go and buy first generation hdtv then second generation hdtv has more features, or buy a video card and later, better video card comes out that offers free AA or offers directx 11 features, blah blah. nothing new.
