Virtually Breathless :)))
...as I worked to catch up for the day, I just saw the story this morning and speculation about Katzenberg's' Future--what is clear is that Comcast is positioning itself to be more of a content provider and strengthen its' position--my fear is whether Comcast will exercise this power responsibly or not.

I think the FCC has the same concern, and it will be watching Comcast. We'll see what happens in the approval process.

Although Transformation is always to be witness to, the problem is creativity gets lost in the process of corporate concerns and being 'politically correct".     So far the Roberts Family seems to have understood how to execute.

Another sensational story in the world of media and entertainment. This is just reemphasising that lot of fous in streaming technology. Mobile streaming has become equally if not even more evolving.

It would be interesting to watch what happens. But we have to agree with @mpouraryan's comment that during the course of these things creativity gets lost and other corporate adjustments take the priority.

Re: Entertainment Domain
@mpouraryan:

Very interesting read, Thanks much for sharing.

It was good reading through Katzenberg's journey to date and this deal with  DreamWorks, his  baby. I am very impressed to know the way he wore many hats through his efforts to reach his accomplishment. That rage from his Disney's departure is a clear factor for his hunger to prove himself and reach places. He surely did that today. Just would like to mention I was an Ex-Disney employee and his name didn't ring a bell, my bad.
