mandatory digital television - why?
Quote:The idea of feedback to the carrier through digital TV doesn't always jibe. On cable that is certainly a possibility. Satellite and terrestrial signals are a one-way signal. They produce, you receive. cable and VOD are the only way you can have targeted advertising.

all I know is that personalized advertising is a real plan, digital signals are for cable as well as satellite, and some folks will be viewing through a signal converter, neither cable or satellite.

I didn't say that was the reason for the switch, just a thought.
I personally don't like this targeted advertising agenda, no matter how it does or doesn't work.
I hope that your correct and that I can avoid it just by having satellite.

At NASA, it really is rocket science, and the decision makers really are rocket scientists.
But a body of research that is getting more and more attention points to the ways that smart people working collectively can be dumber than the sum of their parts. .. Irwin Janis? &Groupthink:& is a mode of thinking that people engage in when they are deeply involved in a cohesive in-group, when the members' striving for unanimity override realistic appraisals ? It is the triumph of concurrence over good sense, and authority over expertise.&
