A short report to make facts and statements about what we can consider as a real innovation in TV, not in the contents itself, but in the new way people could watch it. Even if we can be full of scepticism regarding our ability/likeness to watch a great blockbuster or sport event in a too small screen, reality makes the dream, in some uses, true. But how deep?

Yes, we have some contents really developped for mobile, yes we have devices more and more cute (Iphone and wider screens for example). We have probably potential consumers generation Y and youngest can mix their instability and skills to do lots of things in mobility situation, and stay in fashion and hype lights with such stuffs. The idea itself, in bulk’s mind, traces its own way. And past major actors in TV – contents and broadcast -, believe maybe in a strong growth potential, that could make them always powerful and protected from nightmares.

See below some elements of 2007 survey by iresearch.com…Too early?

Reading about last IDATE survey about mobile TV, let’s shout some cruel points, that make reality now, of a growing model we see, with no arriving target yet, in the ability to raise profits, in a sustainable period.

It seems all the movers in around the mobile tv business, could not find the rulebook to make, for sure, profits in a long term area. No business model has been revealed, nor proofs about the value chain in the same time. Talking about fans of free models or relevant of paying fees prayers, nobody can find a model that works, in the fact it’s a foggy market…lost in the forest of majors interests, actors, and not the least, uses…Who can let from here to eternity, his usual tv behaviors?

Talking about selling prices, saying what the final consumer expected to accept to pay (between 8-10$ a month), this could not be much comparing to fixed costs and investments costs to supply the service. Talking about free models, regarding to financing by ads revenues, experts say that it’s obvious a potentially huge market but increasing commercial success but not profits, so far…As we can see, it’s a fighting place between editors (tv channels) and operators (broadcast, wires), and the best would be a strong partnership, that could divide the costs, and share them according to each business model. When will it appears? No body can’t really say it, because no bulk signal from consumers has been confirmed yet, waiting so far, prices and uses, according to “users centrics” behaviors.

TV screen can still make us dream and mobile can make us giving the voice.

Bridges to Heaven

Bridges make part of our dreams. Always have. When I was young, I stayed hours in front of building sites, watching cranes and trucks manage with ground and elements. Who have never dreamed of, drive some huge trucks and be a modern ranger, drawing tracks, roads and buildings…and bridges ?

Bridges make all true. It build from a situation past, to a new one ; linked, kind of passage way, in a conquest field. It’s a part of modern and technology revolution, to rejoin parts away. It pushes the limits far away, connect people, cancel distances and time. Even old Star Trek’s “time-shifting” was considered as a bridge canceling time (or save it !).

Web history has some similar effects. Not that it was the first aim, but it drives us in the same footprints, in some ways. By the seduction and exponantial rise, we open each day, thousands of ways, thousands of bridges, those which look like mazes sometimes (and highly-used by some computing virus !), which are amazing opportunities for knowledge, meet and teach ourselves daily behaviors. Opportunities to discover hidden people, living in dark sides, with such deep messages to ear. It’s not to talk about “power to the people”, but only let’s give a few speak to one who never have. It’s not about make long discussion, with expert’s points of view. Send the sentences from the silence. Go.

World noise is on the web. Just like a bee-house, never ending activity, and you’re a part of it. But it’s supposed not to be too “polluted place”, and stay a place of pleasure.

Let’s consider it like a real bridge masterpiece ; a bridge to heavenly moments, where nobody takes attention in time anymore, where all equal, everyone bringing its rock to this new construction, kind of eden place. Thinking about new step, linking with space’s aliens, trying to communicate with us. Create the new garden of peace : who now, is tempted to eat the forbidden fruit once more…?

You never had the speech skill ? Go, now for it !
