Media and Hardware integration

Tons of articles of late about media and hardware integration – Roku and Amazon, Youtube/Netflix and LG, MySpace/Toshiba/Intel/Yahoo. Especially interesting the play the TV companies are making – smart direction to go in, imho.

I hope they don’t migrate too close to exclusivity and these are just the projects and partnerships that open the door to a consumer friendly integrated experience.  I worry that some of the account and sales reps negotiating these deals may get blinded by the $ and forget about what they are enabling.

Noone wants to be tied to one thing or even a collection of things when they are consuming media.    Sure we do it, like itunes/ipod, but I know that if Itunes started not having the content and experience I wanted, I would move away.

I am positive there is a way to integrate everything together that still allow for accurate tracking of revenues so everyone is happy.  And those who know me know that I am not an idealist.  Let’s make it happen people!
