    I still dont know what is Intel trying in the TV services market. Makes no sense, i guess they see potential in it.

    I don't know either, but if they got something great going on then we will find out sooner or later. They must develop something that the other services don't have yet. :)

    ..gotta be some nuvo concept thing. A pet project of a sorts. When will the industry learn that the internet and TV watching are two totally different forms of entertainment with different requirements on both the hardware AND delivery sides of things?

    Furthermore, one is passive and one is active. And people don't switch between the two like a crazed teen playing 99-cent twitch phone games.

    The industry isn't going to successfully fight this context-style of active/passive switching no matter how hard they try. They've been ~Removed~ with it since the the Gateway Destination convergence PCs in the 1990's with no better inroads.

    My internet time is my internet time.
    My tv & movie time is my tv & movie time.
    I rarely combine them. And neither do hundreds of other people I know.

    I read that they will Partner with Verizon and Outerwall, the owner of Redbox and Verizons partner in Redbox Instant to roll out a cable tv bypass.

    Hey where cable co's resist those places will be over built and big cable will fade or adapt.
