In the late 1990s, many expected televisions to be obsolete in a decade and replaced by personal computers. We’re into the year 2010, and it hasn’t happened yet. The current generation of televisions is vastly different from what we had in the past. There was no such thing as an interactive television set, and there was no way to broadcast Xbox games or YouTube videos. The TV still has the impression of being a “laid-back entertainment device,” despite how much the distinctions between TVs and PCs have blurred over the years. Television viewing is all about kicking back and taking it easy, with the viewer having no active role in the experience.
