owners are the first to get hooked up. The Network's looking at Dashboard as an entirely new content stack that complements its existing portals, capable of delivering a richer experience thanks to its Flash-based roots; the idea is that content providers will be able to offer free and paid content side by side, seamlessly, without the user needing to jump between sites or apps. We're all for flashy new ways to use our handsets, just as long as we don't accidentally buy stuff without realizing it until our bill shows up next month, ya dig?
