Gates: Internet will revolutionize TV in 5 years

By Cory Bergman 

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates, speaking at the World Economic Forum:

“I’m stunned how people aren’t seeing that with TV, in five years from now, people will laugh at what we’ve had…. Certain things like elections or the Olympics really point out how TV is terrible. You have to wait for the guy to talk about the thing you care about or you miss the event and want to go back and see it…. Internet presentation of these things is vastly superior.”

With IPTV coming, he’s right on the mark, folks.
