Just say no to Mobile TV?

It is good to see Mike Masnick and I are thinking along the same lines about watching television content on our handsets. Our opinions are slightly different, but still I like this point of view – “Even if you can tie entertainment functions to a mobile device, it doesn’t mean you can do it very well. While it may be a nifty conversation piece to be able to do mobile television, the first time something goes wrong, people will remember that consumer electronics products tend to work somewhat reliably, while computing devices don’t.” I had brought up these very same issues in my recent Business 2.0 Converge Sense column, The Three Screen Problem. “Most companies are trying to impose the PC on the other two screens. But altering the form and function of these devices is just not going to work.”
