WOULD YOU LIKE A FREE CABLE MODEM?
BILL GATES WOULD *LOVE* TO GIVE YOU ONE
Bill Gates is slyly making plans to hijack the Internet
TV market -- and you. By investing huge $$ in cable
companies (like this week's rumored deal with TCI)
he helps finance high-speed cable access to the Internet.
And gets his Microsoft software onto the cable-modem-equipped
set-top boxes the cable companies will "give" you
as part of your monthly fee. Once that happens you
(and the Net TV market) are all his.
Didn't the PM or someone similar just meet with Billy recently? This
would be one way to move the HFC effort forward.
