    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.

Um, 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”? (As a kid, my dad believed there were little men inside the TV set acting out the shows.)
