Future media service delivery in a metered world

This story needs more attention – it’s a big deal about how future services are delivered in a metered world.

Its a good idea, lol and something i proposed with a project in another world a long time ago ....sniff  :(  but how its going to be seen here in the USA is the interesting part.

Is it not breaking net neutrality rules.....or is it a duck?

OneGoldenSquare yet another IP-TV application

I was reading this press release

I'm kind of curious though, how are Samsung/OneGoldenSquare handling payments to the RIAA/other various international copyright bodies?

Are they tracking ip address location and correlating via a tracking mechanism?
Are they only allowing activation of this feature in certain countries where they have licenses already paid for?

Anyone have any thoughts?

Why Internet TV's will always be losing the battle against "Living room devices"

I keep seeing people talkign about Internet Tv's and they will eb the wave of the future taking over from Roku/Home Media PC's etc.

I cant stress this enough these seperate boxes will always have an advantage over "Internet tv's" in that they can be replaced on a regular basis every 1-2 years or so fairly cheaply; The average time for a TV replacement 4-5 years..... you do the math.

The CPU/smarts should ALWAYS be a seperate device to the TV...yes even if its an Apple TV.

Badgeville "Gamification Webinar"

This is a link the to “Badgeville Gamification webinar” I watchedn yesterday.

The stats on the users is staggering (and being married to a user I see no reason to disagree with them).

Keep in mind though that badgeville didn’t design the mint elements…their example is a little lamer so I’m still looking for the reason why “works” so well.

If you are a user why do you think people love it so much?
