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.

It’s not the TV channels people want, it’s the large screen. A 22" PC monitor (and the PC interface) is not the same as a 52" LCD. What people would like is a simple interface to photos, the web and media without having to be a geek to hook up a PC to a TV and juggle the plethora of crappy software.

It will be a success, if all the in-fighting between manufacturers doesn’t cripple the market for 5 years. And that the cable companies are as clueless as AT&T.

...and you can hook up any computer with a DVI or HDMI(or displayport, really) to a computer with said output(s).

A TV is a monitor with a tuner in it.
