Joost is talking about getting hardware manufacturers to embed their internet TV service player.
This is of course a necessary step that is finally becoming a must for internet TV platforms to get their content on the TV. Apple TV with their upcoming Youtube support might have the head start.
Joost has more potential as a TV platform to provide content that competes directly with cable TV or satellite TV programming.
Cable TV companies need really start to worry. The TV studios anyway already making deals with Joost and Youtube to distribute their content over these platforms.
Suddenly watching Internet TV in a big way on our HDTVs might be closer to reality than we thought.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
