nobody needed EVR or Quad-8 tracks, either.

I've been waiting five or more years to see any desire or need or use by
people of mobile video.  Here's what I've seen
1)  last fall, on a sunday, about an hour before the Chargers were to play
the Raiders (always an "interesting" event, and I don't mean on the field),
I saw a guy watching a portable TV (presumably an early game) while waiting
for the trolley at the Bayside station in Chula Vista.
2)  Cadillac announcing DirecTV capability in their most expensive escalade.

I'm sure the tempo will be picking up, so that it can approach nil, and then
