Comcast Pulls the Strings

By Published on .

Comcast "Comcastic"
The communications giant invites web surfers to visit a website that can only be described as Comcastic. To illustrate the control you wield over your entertainment through Comcast's On Demand digital cable service, the site gives you complete control over any of five puppets, which you can program to dance and deliver a personalized message—recorded with your own voice—before sending the "puppet mail" to a friend. Meanwhile, the benefits of Comcast's high-speed internet service take center-stage in a series of five mouse-powered games, testing the accuracy and speed of computer-savvy contestants as they compete for the World-Speed Mouse Record.
