TV is a Relic of a By Gone Era

Apple CEO, Tim Cooke said this to Charlie Rose last September (from BI)

“Think about all the things that have changed … and TV almost feels like you’re rewinding the clock, the interface is terrible,” said Cook. “It’s awful.”

Now chick out comments related to a significant drop in earnings at Fox.

… a note released earlier this week from Nomura Research based on recent numbers from Nielsen found total live TV viewing in the US was down by 12.7% year over year across the networks of major media companies in January.

And this put a $500 million dent in Fox’s earnings for the year.  Something is stirring here. Interesting.
