On Monday, Steve Jobs kicked off the week with a two-hour keynote address at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference leaving us all feeling a little cloudy. While many are impressed with Apple’s new iCloud, others argue that the lack of streaming video content is an important piece missing from the company’s video offerings.
In other news, Comcast expanded its business even further by allowing subscribers to remotely monitor everything from the security to the thermostats in their own homes. Meanwhile, ESPN adopted Motorola Mobility’s video distribution solution just in time for NBA playoffs! This new service will allow sports nuts to watch coverage of LeBron and Dirk in HD programming across the country.
You’ll likely be able to see demos of these offerings and more at next week’s Cable Show. See you there!
