"Don't buy this hypothesis... They would very likely not have a lack for energy resources since they're traveling the stars. They solved that problem. Being that advanced, they'd also likely be able to synthesize any other resource at a molecular level. So I don't see resources as a motivation, unless humans are the resource (slaves). I could see them being nomads as he imagines, but not looking for resources. More likely just a habitual environment to live, in which case, the Hawking outcome might be the same." Read more

Today in “Old media versus the Internet,” the Wall Street Journal is reporting that major studios ABC (owned by Disney), CBS (part of CBS Corp) and NBC (owned by GE) have joined Hulu in blocking Google TV from accessing the available television episodes on their websites.

Various timeworn concerns such as lack of a viable business model for content owners, content being cannibalized by the Internet as well as Google’s as of yet unknown position on piracy led to each individual network’s decision to opt out.

A Google spokesperson told the WSJ:

“Google TV enables access to all the Web content you already get today on your phone and PC, but it is ultimately the content owners’ choice to restrict their fans from accessing their content on the platform.”
