Did you have to think about it? Well, no matter what your answer, you can count on the fact that we all spend a LOT of time with one or both. So my next question would be, “why not combine the two? Yes, the ever changing technology rich world has given us new and exciting opportunities to watch TV on our computer.
To the viewer it looks just like it’s being done the old fashioned way, but in fact we’re undergoing a paradigm shift in the way we get out audio / video content. Within the next few years many people will be using their computer as their home’s content management system. It will be networked with other computers in the house and connected to your TV. You’ll be able to use it a giant video storage device to time shift and store content, much like you use your DVR (TiVO) today. When you want to rent a video, you’ll simply stream it for immediate viewing or download it to be viewed later. The video store will soon be going the way of the pay phone; sure you’ll be able to find one, but you’ll have to really look.
I can help with content, I can help get this going, but what I’d really like to see is for people to take this and make it their own. There’s so much amazing content out there that no one gets to see. I’d like to see record labels, I’d like to see actors, bands, filmmakers, anyone with something to say, something to sell, or something to show: they all should be on here.
The Bad – Would have liked to have seen more specific examples of how PSN accounts are being protected, PS Move integration, Vita might be a beast, but is it a necessary one in today’s mobile gaming market?
You’ll also get access to Easy VANTAGENS IPTV, which lets you utilize a number of online services directly from your TV – including Netflix, Pandora, Facebook, and more.
Companies such as Raku and others who simulate a video distribution platform such as cable or satellite are on the rise as well. What does this mean for consumers and viewers? It means they’ll have much more access to the exact type of content that they want to see when they want to see it. So what does this mean for traditional TV channels? What this means is that now more people have more access to other nonlinear nontraditional channels and which are competing with the conglomerate channels. This means the older more popular financially secure channels are now Facing a problem because many Of their viewers are being lost to other nontraditional channels.
MPLS helps ….. but you have to keep in mind that your network engineers should know multicasting extremely well, as well as QoS. Plus your equipment should not slack. MPLS means nothing if your network is engineered improperly. It also means nothing if your MPLS provider is clueless ….. and or peering with someone else who is not honoring packet coloring.
So there you go. I got Sony on top, with Nintendo right behind, and Microsoft a distant 3rd. Lots of cool stuff, and lots more questions. No matter how you look at it, 2011 is shaping up to be a very interesting year in gaming.
