Re: Timely Move
Totally agree and good points! Names do carry weight. I think sometimes names become more popular than the companies work themselves. People like the name but don't love the products.

@elizabethv:

There is no doubt about it, it's all the magic due to the name in the market. But as you rightly sttaed, that concept now is changing.

Re: Timely Move
@JohnBarnes:

Absolutely, that dominant presense of the company in a global market made the age old technology sustain till this point. If that was the case with any smaller company that company would have closed doors long ago. I was surprised to see many big names in market waited too too long to get out of Y2K situation back at that time.

Re: Europe HbbTV
So true! That's great that they could get all those businesses to actually agree on something. I feel like that would never happen here...we can hope though.

Re: Timely Move
@JohnBarnes - I think that's a good point. Maybe the BBC is just so comfortable with who they are. Their name carries weight no matter what. Kind of like the Yankees. Their name carries weight, even if they can't seem to win a game to save their lives lately. While both the Yankees and the BBC might be able to always have some clout simply because of who they once were - that won't and can't last forever. As later generations become more comfortable, later generations of consumers become younger, and forget what once might have made those names great. They still have to keep up with the times to remain relevant, no matter who they once were.

Re: Timely Move
ms.akkineni,

Even the most innovative firms eventually succumb to entropy and inertia. The BBC was the world's great communications innovator between the wars, a big player till almost the end of the cold war ... but each generation gets a little more comfortable, especially in a giant organization.

Re: Timely Move
I thought so too. I mean, this is the BBC we're talking about. I almost expected them to be more of a leader in bringing this kind of technology to the fore ground and utilizing it in their day-to-day operations. But then, it's possible they were just being overly picky. I guess. It really does seem odd.

Europe HbbTV
The shear effort to get 125 companies to collaborate on anything is tremendous!
If only this could happen in the U.S. Sigh!

This is great for consumers in EU who demand new products and services. At least they finally realized they need to get in the game and provide services that consumers want.

Re: BBC and Europe
I agree! I hope it'll make Hbbtv more popular in the long run! I think it'll be a good thing for everyone involved.
