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.

Sorry, but that sounds terribly frightening!

I may sound old fashioned but I prefer my technology dumb. I don't want my devices to do things *for* me, I want them to make it easier for me to do the things that *I* want to do! Sure, I can agree that TVs need to move into the 21st century. Anyone can see that the providers are, for the most part, using an outdated delivery model. But I don't think we need to have an always on plug into the internet that turns *itself* on. Sure, its convenient but current TVs and computers offer the option to turn them off, permanently if you so desire, and I find that very appealing.

I'd also like to mention that I'm not against technology in most ways, (I probably wouldn't be reading OSnews if I was) I'm a web developer and IT guy so I've worked with my fair share of technology.
