Here are two stories that get me excited about future technologies:

First is the premiere of the UPN show Everybody Hates Chris broadcast on Google. Now this is how you leverage Google's popularity to skyrocket a series into the top. Not only does it kill TiVo's advantage, but it also feeds TV show fileswappers' needs. Someone high up in Hollywood actually gets it!

The other story is about an upcoming test of a so-called '4K digital video' that is higher resolution than the best HDTVs on sale today. The first thing that comes to mind is concerts of the future... imagine a worldwide simulcast of an artist using this technology in digital movie theaters! Why hope your city is lucky enough for them to visit when you can go to the movies and watch a live broadcast in super-duper high resolution from halfway around the world? I think this is a hugely untapped market waiting to explode.
