In a conversation with a friend, this came up again. Then I remembered that I'd posted about the same phenomena before.
Take a step back and look at video delivery. Incredible new television and screen technologies. New ways to make content portable, Huge amounts of content, and people demanding more content. A lot of competition for the new screens, and the new content.
I've yet to hear anyone rave about a 4K TV, or a curved television. Never. The picture can be good, but it's almost too much. Unlike standard HD -- there's no burning desire to upgrade. It just doesn't make the jokes funnier or the game more interesting to watch.
Then something new comes along.
If you're old enough to remember the media revolution in the late 1970's and early 1980's, what happened with sound systems then -- looks like the same thing is going to happen with video systems.
Check out the new Hulu Teaser -- it's all about moving around with your content... That's the future.
Technological Leaps - Ours begins now.
