Tech innovation in TV

With Boxee being bought by Samsung at (as rumour has it) not much more than the capital invested, it's worth revisiting Steve Jobs' extremely succinct 2010 explanation of why it's so hard for any external company to innovate in this market. It's a route to market issue, not a technology or vision issue. 

And no, this acquisition doesn't mean Samsung will (or rather should) get into the TV content business.
