Haha people really believe this?

The cable industry is making it worse for themselves by NOT working with Apple.

If Apple manages to convince cable companies to get on board with an Apple TV cable box, Google will quickly follow. From there, it won't be long before most customers will be using Apple or Google TV.

Now cable operators lose virtually all revenue associated with VOD and rental fees. For someone with 2 HDTVs who pays for a movie or two On Demand, this could be a loss of $30-40.

Maybe that's good for you and me, but how the hell is that good for the cable industry?
