Beyond Smart TV: ‘Surfaces’ Prototype Reveals the Television of Tomorrow

Beyond Smart TV: ‘Surfaces’ Prototype Reveals the Television of Tomorrow | Futurism, Ideas, Leadership in Business | Scoop.it

We’ve seen the future of television, and we want it now.

 

NDS, a company that develops DRM security and DVR technology for pay-TV providers like Cox and DirecTV, has developed a proof-of-concept called Surfaces that shows how television could become the center of a much more compelling, immersive living room experience.

 

The prototype jettisons the single, static screen that’s been a hardware mainstay since the golden age of television. In its place is a slick, highly customized room-sized desktop that hosts not only a traditional widescreen TV image, but also windows for a plethora of digital accoutrements.

 

It could be exactly what the TV industry needs to stay relevant.

LinkedIn Posts First Ever Public Earnings Announcement

LinkedIn Posts First Ever Public Earnings Announcement | Futurism, Ideas, Leadership in Business | Scoop.it
LinkedIn shared its Q2 earnings today in its first earnings announcement as a public company. Usage numbers are up significantly, with 115.8 million members, up 61% from Q2 2010, and 81.8 million monthly unique visitors, 83% more than last year.

 

Net revenue growth was not as strong, but CEO Jeff Weiner says this is due to heavy reinvestment in the growth and development of the site. LinkedIn earned $4.5 million in net income this quarter, compared to $4.3 million last year, just a 5% increase. But their top-line revenue was up considerably, more than doubling since Q2 2010. Before costs, they pulled in $121 million last quarter.
