Sometimes all the news of the week needs is a little graphical interpretation. In honor of Newsweek’s old thumbs-up, thumbs-down feature, here are my opposable-digit picks of the last few days.
More DOCSIS 3.0 – Comcast is now aiming to have 65% of markets upgraded to DOCSIS 3.0 by the end of the year after easily meeting its goal of 20% coverage by the end of 2008. (Motorola modems spotted last year in Comcast D3 deployments)
Earnings Announcements – Generally bad and uninspiring. (Unless you’re Campbell’s Soup.) Also contributing to new lows in recent stock market memory.
Hulu Pulls Content – Hulu pulled its popular NBC and FOX content from Boxee and CBS-owned TV.com this week. So much for a new approach to new media.
CBS March Madness in High-Def Online – If you’re a college basketball fan, your viewing options for the month of March just got whole lot better.
