I think this is the curse of being ahead of the curve in technology.
So much money is poured into infrastructure while technology is taking
the baby steps, then it is hard to get reinvestment.

During the 70's I got to enjoy great TV in Europe and we are just now
getting the HD now.  I still haven't updated my TV's as I am not big
on TV.  So I am still in the stone age there.  If I were younger, I am
sure it would be more important.

My grandson thought it was cool looking at HD UTube on my laptop, though . . .
