Comcast is still coax to the house in most areas i believe, including mine - but fiber to the node. where i am at is all DOCSIS 3, so they are selling 50/10 service. i have 20/5 for the $55 price.
Comcast, the largest cable provider in the US, allows internet w/o tv. actually, you need to get at least two of their three services - phone, internet and television. i have phone and internet for $55 a month. and an antenna on my roof for free HD tv.
not if google v. viacom is any indication. a guaranteed $500 million couldn't buy google/youtube the content it wanted. content owners are *very* wary of Apple at the moment, and have been since the inception of the iTunes Music Store.

Palm (especially) would sell you a new phone, but not improve the old apple will offer software upgrades to improve both the oldest and the newest phones. THIS is why the iPhone is a strong seller and changing the marketplace. Apple is the first major player to realize it...
One HUGE difference: Apple uses Xeon processors, Pystar uses Core2 - utterly different, and priced much much different. Professional workstation vs. consumer grade desktop computer.
my macintosh runs SageTV and functions as the HTPC in my living room, so getting, and keeping, AC3 passthrough has been an issue with every update of QuickTime since 7.5.5
