Stephen Colbert officially announces

adamlazz Success? (1 comments)

I think it would be interesting to make a statement about how he would define a success. In my humble opinion, I think he knows what he is doing. But for some strange reason, I don't think he has enough of the country behind him to pull out as the winner. I wonder what kind of impact he wishes to make, or if he actually thinks he can win this thing.

adamlazz writes "With an explosion of online video content on sites like YouTube and Google Video, Bill Gates believes that the Internet will revoloutionize the television within the next 5 years. "I'm stunned how people aren't seeing that with TV, in five years from now, people will laugh at what we've had," Gates told business leaders and politicians at the World Economic Forum.
From the article:

The rise of high-speed Internet and the popularity of video sites like Google Inc.'s YouTube has already led to a worldwide decline in the number hours spent by young people in front of a TV set. In the years ahead, more and more viewers will hanker after the flexibility offered by online video and abandon conventional broadcast television, with its fixed program slots and advertisements that interrupt shows, Gates said.

adamlazz writes "The most dense computer memory circuit ever fabricated — capable of storing around 2,000 words in a unit the size of a white blood cell — was unveiled by scientists in California. The team of experts at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) who developed the 160-kilobit memory cell say it has a bit density of 100 gigabits per square centimeter, a new record. The cell is capable of storing a file the size of the United States' Declaration of Independence with room left over."

adamlazz writes "CanWest Global Communications Corp and an affiliate of Goldman, Sachs & Co. are paying $2.3-billion to buy Alliance Atlantis Communications Inc. The combined expertise of CanWest and Alliance Atlantis will enable them to produce even better Canadian content, promote it more effectively, and provide greater access to more viewers across more platforms. Alliance Atlantis' launch of BlogTv is a great example of the many 'platforms that will come in the future."
