Last to first, real time tweets from Las Vegas…

  • WirelessHD press conference. Certification ready. 60GHz standard to link devices inside the same room to HDMI standards.
  • Clear thinker: Paul Liao, CTO Panasonic. Uses Maslow’s hierarchy to rate & rank tech features.
  • Clear, though, that there’s still a battle to be fought over how to split up content and application revenue in the wireless world.
  • Recognition that consumers will have lots of devices, but don’t want to pay lots of money to connect them all. There’s hope.
  • Went to Wireless Meets CE panel. Nokia, Intel, Panasonic, Verizon represented. Vague consensus: 1 sub fee/device model will “evolve”.
  • Heading to LVCC, bus line wasn’t long at all.
  • Charlie Ergen: kids love IPTV & it will spread from there. Complicated now but just wait.
  • DISH will sell 1080p downloads via Internet.
  • ETC pres Mark Jackson keynotes DISH news conf, doesn’t say “satellite” once. It’s about TV!
  • IPTV is now an integrated feature in mainstream TV products, services & platforms.
  • SlingGuide puts personal content search & control online.
  • SlingLoaded distributes video: TVs, PCs, iPhone, car, whatever.
  • EchoStar intros STB with IPTV, new “SlingLoaded” navigation across all video sources.
  • Waiting for EchoStar press conf to start.
  • At Sands, show feels empty so far.
