The networked systems could have taken a feed from all TV and radio stations
worldwide, and then feed that signal out to anybody connected to the
network, the franchised systems could have been linked to cable and
satellite systems scanning the airwaves just sending the user, the type of
radio and TV programs they liked, a bit like

OWNING THE RIGHTS TO VIRTUALISED IMAGES
Just say your company owned the rights to letís say the 3D virtualised
images of the Spice Girls or Mozart. Your company could feed those images to
their target audience in real time and those images could also be seen with

say the pyramids of Egypt, acting as a nice bit of virtual background
teleconferencing, holding virtual meetings in virtual space is allowing
for even easier ways to communicate ideas and information and in many ways
that have only just begun to be fully realised. Visual aids are becoming
redundant as they are now being replaced by their superior

THE END USERS COULD ALSO BE VIRTUALISED,
as software and hardware becomes more capable, then everybody should be able
to own a
digital version of themselves, for use in games / online meetings etc.
