Prepare to grovel, cord cutters [CARTOON]

If you gave up cable TV in favor of Aereo, get ready to make it up to your cable guy

The Supreme Court's Aereo ruling could have some unpleasant consequences

The U.S. Supreme Court made a couple of big tech-related rulings this week. One was a decision that the police must get a warrant before searching a cellphone. The other, much less popular, decision was a ruling that the Aereo TV service violated copyright laws. That should kill off Aereo and Aereo-like services, which will probably mean that some cord cutters will turn back to cable TV. Of course, I have no doubt that the cable companies will welcome them back into the fold gracefully…

Happy Friday, everyone!
