Today's Huge Aereo Supreme Court Hearing Could Change How We Watch TV

A startup called Aereo wants to change that. Essentially, it works like an upgraded version of the rabbit ears antennas: for $8 a month, you get access to the thousands of tiny antennas that Aereo has in your city. You can specify which programs you want to watch, and the company will direct the antenna your way so that your shows are accessible on any device of your choice: your computer, tablet, smartphone or media player like Roku.

Of course, networks are not happy about a third party profiting off their content without giving them a dime. Satellite and cable companies pay a fortune to do what Aereo is doing — $3.3 billion combined in last year alone.

"Quite simply, Aereo takes copyrighted material, profits from it and does so without compensating copyright holders," said Gordon Smith, the president of the National Association of Broadcasters.

I just LOVE the animation here. The part with just their hands looks real. And I love the way Gothel’s fingers go from motherly gentle touch to creepy and evil. Beautiful

These are the 9 demographic trends that will define America in 2060

1. What happened to all the white people?

2043 has widely been cited as the “year of the white minority.”

According to this chart, that’s when our Caucasian population will dip below 50% and be overtaken by the combined number of Asians, blacks, Hispanics and other minorities. By 2060, whites will make up just 43% percent of Americans, a staggering 42% drop since 1960. Hispanics, on the other hand, are projected to nearly double their numbers, from 16% today to 31% in 2060.

This could radically reconceptualize issues of representation and power. Areas like government, media and higher education are currently controlled by whites, but as their numbers wane, so will their dominance. Will current racial inequalities subside as a result? Only time will tell.
