A New Framework for Getting It Right with Tech Products

As I continue my never-ending research for our new upcoming report on Internet-connected audio-video technologies and devices, I keep thinking one thing— I’m not that smart.

As the DTV Transition for US Homes Nears, What About Mobile TV’s Uptake Status in the US?

Podcast: TVBLOB Aims to Put “Life Back In TV— the Web Way”

While working for one of the leading IPTV middleware providers (Espial), I saw how difficult it can be to implement the various manifestations of Internet and web-enabled IP set-top boxes being deployed in the market.
