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.

Excuse me, but there would always be a setting to turn that functionality OFF. I mean, come on. When I wrote that comment, did you somehow thought that it would not be possible to use your smart TV "the old way"?

I wonder if people ever thought that the vendor of their devices would decide if/what/when/how they could use them.
"Nah, of course not! That would be insane and evil!" is not now, nor ever will be good enough. We have to stay on guard.
