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.

And of course a lot of companies are in this just in an attempt to become the gatekeepers/keymasters as the DRM provider. Whoever wins that battle stands to earn billions.

PS: "the technology giants will be there to duke it out for the reigns [my emphasis] of this new industry." It should be "reins". Rein (n): A leather strap fastened on to a horse's bridle and used to control the horse. Often used figuratively e.g. "grab the reins" = "take control of".
