Summary
Answer the phone-the television is ringing. In part one of this program, NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman reports on the current state of telecommunications, as AT&T and the Baby Bells leverage broad-band cable technology to wrestle for market share. Along with TV shows, cable can handle voice communications, e-mail, Web access, and more-simultaneously. In part two, Mr. Solman questions the complexities of a total information environment where voice recognition and video conferencing technologies seamlessly blend the Internet, telephony, and television. Will consumers be able to cope with all the new choices?
