Anyway...Kodak guy. He was great. Lovely unintentional comedy. No one frowns at that. His detailed talk of traditional retail units, sponsorships of celebrity apprentice (which is bombing now) and golf tournaments was marvellous. Just the type of talk we would have been faced with 3 years ago. The glossing over of a 60 million strong Kodak Gallery website with 4billion photos was the icing on the cake. Of course no one could ask this man who "just didn't get it" a question, but moi.
Freeview: Needs kick in pants. Pronto.
Our dear friends Freeview - the purveyors of free digital TV, are wielding their sword upon whoever comes in their path. They remind me of those lovely record companies who are completely deluded about the future, grabbing bull of control by the horns with no hope in hell.
Priorities are whack. What you want to do kids? Tell everyone Freeview is love and mungbeans? Then stop acting like the school bully. Get all free and easy like - make proper processes, stop forcing the government to impose stupid rules, think about the future and incorporate online/broadband into the mix. Think where TV is going and it's not saving those free to air channels. In fact, think Star Trek, because we're going to end up one big joint universe with TV for everyone from Krakatoa to Be'er Sheva!
And why oh why is freeview suing that spoof? What's the problem? Everyone knows the cardinal rule of bad online publicity. You want it forgotten, you leave it alone. Because everyone is just waiting with bated breath, for the next stupid thing to come through their twitter stream and your blunder will be promptly forgotten.
