For my birthday this year my wife got me a 50 " plasma tv! I couldn't believe it either and I'm not sure where she found the money but there it is. So why in the world would you care about my new tv? Well aside from looking quite nice and being humongous it also has a wifi internet connection that would allow you if you are so inclined, to view facebook and twitter via TV based apps. You can even tweet about a show right on screen while you watch it (though I am not sure what the point would be). One of the much more useful things (in my opinion) is being able to watch Netflix or Youtube right through the TV. Of course I could do so through my Xbox or Ps3 but its just one less step and would be nice for people who do not have those machines. I am really impressed at how well those two things work and amazed at how far the afformentioned services have come since their inception.
Doesn't seem so long ago that my computer made sounds like it was exploding (dialup) when I wanted on the internet and I had to record shows on things called VHS tapes.
Who knows where we go from here.
