Verizon CEO: “Technology Will Make Hulu Irrelevant” [video]

The companies that continues to innovate will be able to extend their brand and their business model longer than the people who don’t innovate“. Ivan Seidenberg, Verizon CEO

Hulu connects the physical world with the digital world yet through certain, often less than simple steps. Therefore, and logically speaking, Hulu is bound to become obsolete in a few years because there definitely will be other technologies which will certainly provide even simpler and more innovative grounds to allowing for a more integrated connection between our world and what’s on the web.

Verizon’s CEO refers to the Sixth Sense concept, which was introduced to the world a few months ago. According to him, concepts like these will render other available technologies useless in a few years, and I totally agree: who needs to sit at home to watch the news when it can be streamed at any time and place and projected on to a wall?

Finally and to wrap up this post, I’d like to ask you a few questions: Have you ever used Hulu? Do you agree that it will soon vanish? What other technologies do you know of and which have the ability to take over our world in a few years?

    We watch Hulu daily, and i don't think it will be gone anytime soon. It's a great web site.

    You know somehow that kind of thinking would have rendered the cinema obselete as soon as the TV was invented… I think many people would prefer to sit down and watch a movie while they are seated, at home with others and maybe (probably) it will be streamed using netflix or hulu.
