Bill Says TV Is So Last Year

Just days before his Vista launch, Bill Gates told a European audience that television is still in the dark ages, and five years from now we won’t even recognize it. The real revolution will come from the Internet, making the Gates speech sound more like an ad for Steve Jobs’ new iTV. In Gates' world, on-demand video from the Internet will make today's DVRs look like they came from the Flintstones.

In fact, this was a key topic that Gates addressed when handling softball question after softball question from the Daily Show's Jon Stewart Monday night.
