Was watching video commentary from Mark Cuban, as much as i hate some of what he says sometimes, I really like what he was saying about video hotspots.
Digitally augmenting video with hyperlink hotspots should be a huge revenue model and i just dont get why it's not being done.
Surely a common standard for all 'props people' can be implemented with everyone from production crew to movie studio to broadcast network receiving a cut of the final online ordering sales from AmazonTV.com could be implemented.
Something else thats always bugged me is why doesn't my remote control have a 'record this timeslot' so that when Time Warner is showing a tv commercial for the series "Out of Alaska" (cool show btw) that i just click one button and it takes the commercials meta data and tells my pvr to record this show/series.
Surely having a standard platform for tv commercial timeslot meta codes that work on all set top boxes cant be that hard right?
