    Cable boxes going AWAY!!!! In the future cable just becomes INTERNET delivery.. with INTERNET BOXES.

    People are getting internet access thru their cable as well as thru the Telcos. While cable was a packaged product of "stations"... that model is going bye bye.

    In the future, people will go to Websites/APPS to get CONTENT.

    CLOUD providers: AMAZON, MICROSOFT, APPLE, GOOGLE, all want access to the "client".

    PC box makers need to produce products that satisfy demand.

    Cable boxes are going away!!!

    Telcos and Cable companies have tried to force people into the "package" they want to sell.

    Many content providers liked the "package" model because it FORCED people to pay for stuff they did NOT want.

    Higher data rate internet access is changing all that..... STREAMING allows Netflix and others to go AROUND the cable monopolies.

    YOUNGISH people, the audience that everyone wants to reach, are CUTTING the CORD on the "package" providers.

    AMD is very well positioned to provide APUs to the higher end INTERNET BOXES, that require HIGH END GRAPHICS.
