    "Just when it had been written off forever ... MySpace came back with news of a sale with the backing of Justin Timberlake. Big plans were being laid, we were told. The skeptics doubted that MySpace could make a comeback, others took a wait and see approach. Now, MySpace has dropped one of the first official offerings this week at the Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas: They were getting into the connected TV game with MySpace TV.


    "We're ready to take television and entertainment to the next step by upgrading it to the social networking experience. Why text or email your friends to talk about your favorite programs after they've aired when you could be sharing the experience with real-time interactivity from anywhere across the globe? This is the evolution of one of our greatest inventions, the television. And, we no longer have to crowd around the same one to experience it together," said Justin Timberlake at CES."
