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.

Hmmm, Sony is building more and more cleverness in their tv's, wouldn't that make a diff here?


It would be nice if TVs went in the other direction, and become like monitors: passive output (display) devices.

I don't want an ethernet jack in my TV. I don't want Internet access built-in to my TV. I don't want tonnes of menus and layers and what not.

Give me a large, clear, crisp display with lots of inputs in the back, and a single set of audio outputs.

Let the other boxes in the living worry about where the content is coming from (VCR, DVD, BD, cable, HTPC, etc).

Maybe it's time to move to a projector and be done with the whole TV hassle. ;)
