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!
