With more and ways to watch T.V. what is the future of T.V.? With so many sites like Hulu and corporate studios now allowing their shows to be put on their individual sites television has become very mobile and much more accessible. Could T.V. be on its way out? Personally I hardly ever watch T.V. on my actual television anymore. I just watch pretty much anything I want when I want online. I guess you could say I am not bound by conventional time schedules!

But seriously, could T.V. be on its way out? I think the answer may be yes. With so many new tv shows coming online we may soon see regular T.V. phased out. So many people watch their favorite shows online but they also watch them on their phones and other mobile devices! So what could possibly phase out T.V.? Well for one you can buy computers that are as large as some T.V.’s so why would you need to pay for a cable or satellite?

I honestly see a point in time where some people (including myself haha!) will not even bother with conventional television. I will just watch what i want to on the internet. Now for those business minded out there I will have to say. If enough people decide to start watching online and not paying for cable or satellite then you can bet your bottom dollar that television studios will begin to charge. In fact Hulu already has begun to charge. Certainly we cannot expect companies to just give away T.V. afterall it isn’t free to make them!

One thing that is for sure to happen is I believe that you will no doubt start to see other applications and developments emerge that will allow us to watch whatever we want whenever we want. Especially for tablet electronics like the iPad.

With all the new gizmos and gadgets that hit the market every year it makes you wonder. Are conventional computers on their way out? Years ago I remember computers that were so heavy you needed three strongmen and a crane just to move them an inch. The along came the laptop. Sure it was still bulky but was a whole lot more portable.

Then everything got smaller, laptops, computers, you name it. But now we live in an age where there are phones that are almost just as powerful as some computers. We surf the Internet,send emails, write documents. All on devices that fit in our pockets. Does all this portable power mean that conventional computers as we know them are on their way out?

Well that is a question only time can really answer. With tablet devices like the iPad paving the way for a new generation of computers we may soon see desktops and laptops alike become obsolete. Now of course this won’t be a one day you wake up and boom you have an dinosaur sitting in your home kind of thing (though that does seem to be how technology works doesn’t it?)
But gradually we may see “normal” computers be transitioned into sleeker and more efficient designs.

But even if desktops DO become obsolete large screen computers will not. No one is going to want to do all of their work on a tiny little phone. But inside of a few years would might see walls that house computer displays (like a giant screen tv) or projectors that can create a fully interactive UI anywhere on the home or office. Either way you put it conventional computers will be on their way out and a new age of computer usage is on it’s way.
