We've already gotten a taste of what Vista's Sideshow feature can potentially do (both on remotes and on laptops), but now Korean manufacturer Soundgraph is hoping to beat MS to the punch with its own Sideshow-like feature called Front View. Front View consists of a front-mounted display on your Media Center PC that shows local weather, media info, and news headlines. The concept sounds very similar to Vista's Sideshow, but with one complication.

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

What good would a 3-inch screen on your MCE PC be if it's tucked away in your A/V cabinet or if you're sitting far away from it? Otherwise, the concept is very much a Sideshow rip off.
