As 2003 winds down and we look forward to 2004, we want to thank our readers for their contributions, not just to us by way of your feedback and guest articles, but more broadly for hanging in there while the broadband industry went through some tough times. We're delighted to see things looking up. The contributions all of you have made toward making residential broadband services and products real has been pretty awesome!
As we have madly dashed to pull together today's affordable broadband products for the Connected by Design tour at a Las Vegas showhouse, we've been struck by our industry's enormous progress since we started writing this newsletter in early 2000. Broadband is becoming part of many peoples' lives, new services that take advantage of broadband connections are multiplying, IP telephony is turning from dream to reality, new digital media adapters seem to be announced almost every day, HDTV and flat screens are growing--and the consumer electronics industry is on a tear to figure out how they can leverage broadband to and in the home. Pretty amazing!
We're proud to be part of an industry that aims to make people's lives better, simpler and more enjoyable. If you're going to be at CES or the International Builders Show in January, please stop by to say "Hi" and let us say a personal "Thank you!"
