Did somebody pee in your cornflakes this morning?
While there are some genuine questions to ask about the openness of the specification, and whether they should rewriting the technical spec of the wheel, overall I think this is a good thing.
Quite frankly, the pre-Canvas progress at mainstream not-via-a-pc IPTV would best be described as laughable if it wasn't also quite so contemptuous of the consumer.
It seems that without exception, the "internet enabled" TVs so far have offered a risible garden-walled selection, presumably for grubby money reasons. Now given that irrespective of how it occurs, sooner or later we'll get a dominant system, and I'd rather have one based on the self-serving interests of the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, than the self-serving interests of BSkyB.
