Multimedia, AV An interesting anecdote at MinimalMac about television being broken. The author's young daughter, who is growing up in a Netflix/Hulu/iTunes/etc. household, was confronted with actual TV for the first time, and wonders why she can't pick what to watch, why the shows are being interrupted all the time, and so on. Clearly - TV is broken.

I have the solution

I have the ultimate solution for all of your television woes:

http://www.turnoffyourtv.com

I'm just sayin'. I've been TV-free for about 13 years, and don't miss it. Pretty much all of my relatives have TVs (usually more than one) on all the time, and I feel dumber every time I go visit them for a few days. Of course, people say that there is some good stuff on TV... just like you could find a crust of bread in a pail of garbage, but I'd never go through it.

It's also funny when people ask me what I watch on TV, and I tell them I don't have one. Usually, I get a look like I just told them I sell hand-made testicle warmers on the corner.
