Happy Friday, cable gang. We end the week with a look at Time Warner Cable Inc. (NYSE: TWC) fighting off complaints from programmers that are in a huff about the MSO's app for the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPad.
Despite some ballot-stuffing efforts, Comcast still advanced to the "Sweet Sixteen" of The Consumerist's "Worst Company in America" tournament. The MSO, the reigning "Golden Poo" champion, will meet Best Buy in the next round. Others from the telecom and video world that made it through include Sony Corp. (NYSE: SNE), DirecTV Group Inc. (NYSE: DTV), AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), Apple and TW Cable.
While this reviewer thinks mobile 3D technology is cool, he says the lack of 3D content from programmers coupled with difficulties users would have in shooting their own 3D videos makes it a "lose/lose situation." (See 2010 Top Ten: 3DTV Hype Builders .)
