Intel to Blow Up Cable Companies

Well, somebody's looking out for Americans.  

Clay [Forbes reporter] says Intel is planning to deliver cable content to any device with an Internet connection. And instead of having to pay $80 a month for two hundred channels you don't want, you'll be able to subscribe to specific channels of your choosing.

That means that ATT, Charter, Time-Warner (et al) will be spending several $Ka-Zillion on lobbying over the next several months--which you will pay for, assuming you continue their "service."

And that spending will be at the State level, not just the Federal level.  Watch your friendly local legislators closely, folks.
