I like 'em, always have. Smart people. You know how I know
they're smart? Because given the choice, they are likely to select
MPEG-4 as their IPTV standard (you hear me Sony?
). This is big given that Europe and China are also expected to lead in IPTV adoption
versus the United States.
Of course, maybe IPTV (w/ HDTV) would roll out a bit faster
if broadcasters, equipment providers and content producers all
standardized on one compression technology. Maybe one day my children
could wake up in the morning and watch CNN's Pipeline in high
definition. Maybe more competition would force the cable companies to
improve their HD offerings. MAYBE PEOPLE WOULD SHOUT THE VIRTUES OF
HDTV FROM THE TREETOPS, AND THE ROOFTOPS, AND THE VESTIBULES
apologize for the outburst, it's early and I have not yet had my
medicine. *plays Xbox 360*
