Multimedia, AV I'm a couch potato. There, I've said it. I love sitting down and watching sci-fi movies, like any good geek would. And this is an (almost religious) action that hasn't changed for many, many, years. But I feel that we're in for a surprise soon. The way we watch TV and access content is about to change. TV watching will at last arrive into the 21st Century, and the technology giants will be there to duke it out for the reins of this new industry.

You're saying that the future of TV is using the TV as a "dumb" computer display and that a suitable computer should be embedded in the TV, using that display.

For me that just means that the TV dies as a TV in the regular meaning. It just becomes another window on the Internet, a window primarily designed for couch access. That is bound to happen, even if the manufacturers and service providers don't play the game...
