ABC Prepares for Super Bowl Big & Tall

Gizmodo reports on the preparations ABC is making for broadcasting the Super Bowl in HD, including using wireless HD cameras and Advanced Optical Stabilization.

Which makes me think one thing: If the Super Bowl can be covered in HD, and SNL and The Tonight Show and Conan can, why can't, say, The Today Show?

Sofa, anchor desk, plaza.

Not the biggest technical challenge on Earth, I would think.

Speaking of the Super Bowl, as it plays out on Ford Field, the best line goes to The Daily Show's Rob Corddry: Commenting on the 30,000 layoffs last week at Ford, he said that the forty million dollars they spent on the naming rights could not have been better spent.
