We Need Uncle Miltie For Wireless

from the what-will-it-be... dept

With the unfortunate passing of Milton Berle yesterday, Forbes finds a parallel between his life and career, and what’s happening in the wireless world these days. In the late 40s no one was sure that television would take off. People were happy with their radios. And, then, Uncle Miltie entered their living rooms and television (and radio) was never the same. So, while plenty of people are content with their mobile phones, maybe there’s some sort of Milton Berle out there waiting to take wireless to the next level.
