Re: Ultra HD at CES
I know (and agree) that this has been beaten to death, but wanted to respond to one more thing you wrote. The notion that I don't know how TV is distributed because I used the word 'pipe'. Really? You actually think that I believe that there's a real pipe going from say Rainbow to Verizon? Is it PVC? Come on. That term is used, very commonly, to denote one thing - bandwidth. Whether you're talking about distribution through wireless signal, or fiber, or coax, or what have you - there is a bandwidth limitation that you're dealing with. I talk about the 'pipe' that DirecTV uses to get TV to your house too - do you really think I believe there's a massive pipe coming from their satellite to your house? Of course I understand that the medium is not an actual pipe. But that doesn't mean there isn't a limit to how much space they have to carry their signal. And like I said, that's a pretty standard term that's used to denote bandwidth.
