    Mind the Gap

    Ok im starting to get disturbed. Europe gets all the freakin sweet phones. Now they get HBO on demand from 3G. Um wait isnt that show from the USA? Vodaphone is announcing a global Mobile TV service, which will offer series like Sex and the City, Six Feet Under or Curb Your Enthusiasm on its Vodafone Live! service. Bastards. And to rub it in, they’ll also get Eurosport, Twentieth Century Fox Television, The UEFA Champions League, Discovery, MTV, Chilli TV and Fashion TV in countries like New Zealand or UK. All this will work on any 3G-enabled phone in eight of Vodafone’s operating countries: Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain and the UK; three associate networks—Belgium, France and Switzerland; and one partner network, Austria.

    On another note BskyB digital satellite customers are starting to download hundreds of films as well as highlights from major sporting events onto their PCs—all for no extra cost. Stunning, really. Called skybybroadband, the service promises a good mix of films, including Hollywood blockbusters and classic movie titles, as long as they’re available on its Sky Movies channels. All you need is a PC running Windows XP and a broadband connection.

    Wow at what point is this really going to start hurting America? Our loss of PhD's and scientists is disturbing enough but where is the tipping point where our technological lateness starts to hurt us? I realize a country the size of Britain is much more adapt to create networks like this. All we get is Snake II or Madden, while Europe has on demand for their phone and is watching Curb Your Enthusiasm.

    Broadband goes Airborne
