CES: High-Def Snooze

3:1f PM -- OK, I've realized the problem with all the WiFi HDTV streaming demos I've been seeing here in Vegas.

It's not the technology -- it's now entirely possible to run a couple of streams over the latest WiFi boxes. It's the content. Every damn one of these demos plumbs the awesome richness of the undersea world; takes us into the vastness of space; or slowly watches a flower unfold.

Boring! Boring! Boring!

Try car cashes, explosions, beautiful yet tragically flawed famous people, or even dinosaurs (if you must have nature). Anything. Just no more jellyfish floating majestically in the deep, please.
