Is your set top box big enough for all those TV channels?


This little gaffe was too good to pass up, so we're passing it on: The Wall Street Journal put out a Friday afternoon article on SBC's new IPTV set top boxes that ended with the following curious statement: "SBC's Internet-TV boxes will be smaller than a typical cable box. Cable boxes need to be big enough to store all channel programming at once, but because Internet-based boxes stream only one channel at a time, they don't need the extra space." Looks like somebody's got their idea of "space" a little confused — we sure hope there aren't too many folks out there wondering whether or not they should get a bigger cable box to squeeze more channels into.
