AT&T's MultiMedia Studio: An exercise in irrelevancy

I just received and completed an online survey from AT&T introducing its MultiMedia Studio server resident software. It will allow end users to use it in lieu of PC-based software for photo and video editing, managing music files, blogging, presentations and word processing.

For those of us residing in one of El Dorado County's many broadband black holes, the survey for MultiMedia Studio is an exercise in irrelevancy. That's because without a broadband connection to the Internet, server based software such as being contemplated by AT&T is simply useless.

First things first. AT&T should instead be focusing its resources on upgrading its aged infrastructure so it can make broadband available to those without access. Without it, MultiMedia Studio isn't even in the realm of possibilities.
