Time Warner Cable CEO: 'What's AirPlay?"

Glenn A. Brit, CEO of Time-Warner Cable has never heard of Apple's AirPlay system.
Can I use this AirPlay thingie with a VHS recorder?
In case you missed (or didn't understand) the title, let's try a re-phrase:

The CEO of Time-Warner Cable doesn't know what Apple's Air Play is.


MobilePhonesFan will now paste the quote, verbatim. Nothing more to add...

Quote of the Day:
Glenn A. Britt, [Time-Warner cable's] chief executive, said in a group interview on Friday that the challenge for digital video was that there was no simple way to get Internet-based video onto the television screen. He wasn’t familiar with AirPlay.
“I’m not sure I know what AirPlay is,” he said, though he noted that he was an enthusiastic Apple customer. “Today we want to be on every screen. Today it’s a little bit clunky to get programming from the Internet onto the TV — not so hard to get it on your iPad. What’s hard is the plumbing, what wires do you connect, what device do you use. So the current Apple TV, the little thing, the hockey puck, really doesn’t do anything to help enable you to get Internet material on your TV.”
Hmm...maybe we'll just add this. And this.

Never fear, Glenn. Teh internets haz yer back, buddy.
