You know with Sky digital/satellite etc, can the interactive bits on the set top box be pushed to an ISP of your choice or do you have to go through the satellite provider? Will we see a time when the likes of Sky offer a service where you get broadband free with Sky? Especially baring in mind that at the moment, your normal punter will have the choice of £30 on Sky or £30 on Broadband? I only ask because of the obvious way that the likes of BBC and Merdoc are pushing everyone towards digital TV. Will the average Joe Bloggs be pushed away from the 'real' internet, with the likes of BBC digital, sky sports, music box, MTV etc as there main destinations, via use of their Set top boxes/tv + computor merge and so end up with a garden wall scenario...? Or do you think that as broadband opens then the sites like BBC.co.uk, Sky sports, MTV etc will offer there cable services via broadband as pay per view? just a thought whilst we were on the subject...

After all we are making the assumption here that nothing happens to the technology. You can consider what the search engines may do - but you still have to consider what the public will demand. There is a big difference between Google Adds and paying for position - A difference that Google acknowledge, and that their current management understand as being an important clarification to retain for preventing a loss of their market share. -Stu -- underscore_ list info/archive -> http://www.under-score.org.uk
