Ok, ok, everyone makes mistakes sometimes, and we're sure this must have just been an embarrassing little mistake that someone really regrets right now, but it's too amusing not to point out on a Friday afternoon as we get ready to close out the week. The Wall Street Journal, which generally has a well-deserved reputation for reporting excellence apparently put a bizarre statement towards the end of their article about SBC's new IPTV set top boxes: "SBC's Internet-TV boxes will be smaller than a typical cable box. Cable boxes need to be big enough to store all channel programming at once, but because Internet-based boxes stream only one channel at a time, they don't need the extra space." As David Card says at the link above, "Isn't that a little like saying: Flat panel sets aren't as good for watching team sports because a CRT has more room to hide all the tiny little players?"
