Why Apple Should Use Its Billions to Crush Hollywood

An interesting perspective from Cult of Mac’s Mike Elgan. I’m not sure if I agree with his suggestions towards the end, but he nails the nightmare that is cable TV. I can’t think of a more unappealing area of tech, but I’m not sure even Apple wants to turn this one around. I get the feeling that instead of taking over Hollywood and cable, they’d rather just eliminate the TV completely.

On the other hand, there’s no doubt in my mind that Apple could make a much better DVR and internet-enabled TV. If they do decide to go for it, they will surely revolutionize yet another market. Whether they feel such a massive undertaking is worth their time is another story entirely.
