Jon Healey writes about the love hate relationships high tech has with Hollywood.

“Despite the increased bandwidth and improved capabilities of the mobile-phone networks in the U.S., relatively few people use their cell phones to watch video — according to analyst Mark Donovan of M:Metrics, less than 2 million people watched programmed TV on their mobiles. Donovan offered that stat at the iHollywood Forum’s Mobile Entertainment Summit this morning, and several other speakers opined on what’s holding up the market. The consensus: advertiser-supported programming is the way to go, but carriers and content providers haven’t agreed yet on a way to do it.”

“Pandora has spent several years analyzing songs based on such characteristics as the vocalist’s tone and range. It then tries to predict new music choices by taking the user’s song preferences and finding matches in its database. Users can give the song a thumb’s up or down, creating a personal playlist.”
