2006, Dr, Bruce Klopfenstein, and the Rise of iTV
Interactive television may jump up and grab us the way DVD players and discs did a few years ago. The Direct Response Television Industry is frothing at the mouth at the thought of people impulse purchasing "19.95 plus $5.95 shipping and handling" and DirecTV knows how much money can be made through iTV horse races as well established in the UK by sister company BSkyB.
It's end of the semester grading time at the University of Georgia, but I'm alive and well and will get back to posting my thoughts on iTV very soon.
P.S. They kept saying "Merry Christmas" and "the weather you'll face when heading toward that Christmas party this weekend." I had always noticed that they were careful to rarely say the C word in years gone by. Could it be that the new political hot potato, "Merry Christmas" versus "Happy Holidays" has changed the Weather Channel? Interesting to note this apparent change.
