Television, like every other medium of entertainment or communication, has been irrevocably changed by the Internet. It is currently in the (rather slow process) of evolving into a more connected medium. The growth in popularity of IPTV and coming of DTV are two harbingers of this change. A lot of corporations are trying to get in on the ground floor of this television revolution. Opera and GooMe are just two of them.
They've partnered together to devise an over-the-top modular web-based solution for IPTV and hybrid IP/broadcast TV delivery. Opera's browser (and mobile browser) experience, combined with GooMe's experience building OTTmedia solutions, make them a pretty damn good team for this sort of work. We should see some further in-use videos at CES 2010 this week, which will give us a better idea of whether or not this dream team actually managed to make a product worth using. Don't let us down, guys!
CES 2010 is here and with it tons of hot product announcements. Stay on top of the huge amount of CES 2010 news and highlights with I4U News. Read all about CES 2010 now. Follow I4U News on Twitter.

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.
