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.

TV is dead. People don't gather around the TV any more, and with 1080p monitors being as common as they are, and virtually no one able to discern resolution above 720, there's no need for _that_ even. Why even bother with a specialised device. Just let us use our computers.
The only thing that interests me about live TV is baseball, and American baseball play doesn't interest me that much.
I'd much rather watch Japanese baseball, and if there's an international standard for net broadcast, I'd be able to watch that. That's unlikely, given how few people in Japan use general-purpose computers... grr.
