E-Commerce Times Talkback

CBS News sat on the sidelines during the cable TV revolution, allowing rivals led by CNN, Fox and NBC to dominate the world of 24-hour news. But determined not to make that mistake twice, CBS plans to launch a 24-hour, Internet-based video news service that will let visitors pick reports they want to watch. "Internet news is in its infancy," CBS News president Andrew Heyward says. "We're making the bet that the most desirable [to advertisers] news consumers [are those who] want to take it into their own hands."
I believe the future of TV is already in the past as internet media, podcasts, etc., are now the mainstream. Internet talk radio will eventually be integrated, and then surpass the present programming, and podcasts will dominate even more than cellular robots. As health declines from pituitary inflammation, eyestrain and earaches, attention will center on internet health radio as the only means of survival. Forget advertisers as all generations have learned to tune out completely during any break in repetitive conversation.
