What To Do With Verizon's New Ipad App?
A new iPad application being made available to Verizon's FIOS TV customers will allow them to use the tablet device to watch live television in their homes. Given the fact that most homes now have multiple TV sets, the app's only usefulness, it would appear, is as a monitor in the bathroom (although there are no specs readily available about its water-tightness). Verizon is reportedly working on developing an app that could also be used anywhere. But although conventional portable TV sets are available in most consumer-electronics outlets, including ones that can be installed in automobiles, different copyright issues apparently apply to devices like the iPad. "Those are different rights," Turner Broadcasting spokeswoman Misty Skedgell told the Wall Street Journal. "When you take it outside the home, those are really different discussions."
