Gates on ITV 

I was watching an interview with Charlie Rose just now. Gates would NOT
mention WebTV, nor even MSNTV, by name. He said, basically, "we did some
work with itv about ten years ago, and it didn't work out. Some of my
people are advising me to dump that portion of microsoft, but I tell
them, 'no.'"

The gist of it is this: gates knows itv is the wave of the future, that
BROADcasting is outdated; that NARROWcasting is the future; that
broadband, wireless, ipod/zoon, cellular telephony, etc are going to
cause radical changes in how we receive information.

The MAIN reason, he suggested, that his "experiments in the past" with
ITV weren't successful is that broadband wasn't easily and universally
accessible for the set top appliance.

Basically, in addition to xbox & zoon, gates is saying he anticipates a
global revival in itv.

Keep your hat on.
