Gizmodo getting the idea

I’ve been writing about (1) (2) (3) the next advancements in OTT content. Especially related to the original and the new Apple TV…

Gizmodo seems to be picking up the ideas I’ve been spreading: http://gizmodo.com/5634087/forget-apple-tv-airplay-is-apples-sneak-attack-on-television

And another interesting development is Samsungs’ new Wireless USB chip: http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/04/samsungs-new-wireless-usb-chipset-enables-hd-streaming-with-les/

The entire concept of a Set Top Box is going to change once people understand that they can consume and control content on their couch, using a smart remote (whether this is a tablet, phone and whether you call your portals websites, apps or widgets) and then can stream any content (any content out there!) to their TV-screen… The Set Top Box is dead. The screen is just the screen. The remote is what it’s all about.
