Looks like Comdex is going to be an interesting battlefield the next few days, if Fox has anything to say about it. In another fit of self-delusion, the industry expects streaming to supplant downloads?

(2 items listed below)

  • A new voice from Fox to raise the controversial position at Comdex that a more restrictive technology will ensure the next technology boom. Sounds counter to what I expect – pay more for less?

  • I’m not sure who Brad King talked to, but the notion that streamed content will displace file downloads seems to be the product of a fevered mind. Without stringent controls, that will choke off demand, I can’t see the market going for it.
