The company Aereo announced a product that fundamentally changes the way you can watch over-the-air TV. For $12 a month, subscribers can stream the live feed of local stations including ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC on their computer, tablet or smartphone. The service launches in New York on March 14th. In other news, a report by Cisco predicts that by year’s end, there will be more mobile-connected devices in the world than there are humans. At this rate, there’s expected to be over 10 billion mobile-connected devices by 2016—that’s 1.4 devices per person. And finally, it’s that time of the year for inescapable iPad rumors. One rumor backed by a hardware supplier says Apple is testing a smaller 8” iPad prototype. The Wall Street Journal also confirmed long-running speculation that the iPad 3 will launch with 4G capabilities.
