The End Of The PC?
By Michael V. Copeland

(Business 2.0) – The cable industry is about to launch the latest salvo in its battle with the telecom giants. This month, two of the country's largest cable providers--their identities had yet to be revealed at press time--will begin offering software from New York City's TransMedia to broadband subscribers. The single Web-based application lets consumers share photos, video, music, documents, contacts, and e-mail via any browser. A few months later, TransMedia will embed the software in set-top boxes, says CEO Donald Leka, so customers will be able to handle all their computing needs from a TV set and ditch their PCs altogether.
