Re: [STB] Cisco thinking of getting out of the set-top box busin

An entry in Motorola's MediaExperiences2Go blog about the set-top's future:

The Set-Top’s Future
MMI's MediaExperiences2Go blog - March 8, 2012
»www.motorola.com/mediaexperience ··· -future/

"With recent buzz around Smart TVs, game consoles, and other connected devices, there is continued discussion around the question: is the set-top dead? As the world leader in set-top technology, it is a question we hear all of the time.

The answer from our perspective, of course, is a resounding, “NO!” It’s just the opposite — the set-top’s role is rapidly evolving – to become the entertainment hub in the Living Room. And, with the number of connected devices predicted to increase to +24 billion in 2020, we see a very bright future."

Heh, rapidly evolving? Yeah, but Comcast's deployments aren't, either for boxes or for software. I understand why, and it can't be easy for them.
