The revolution is being televised! Television is a great technological device and it has changed so much over the years.
Its basic purpose, to show moving images, remains the same. But how we get those moving images now is just remarkable.
Previously, we received content passively. TV shows, movies and news were provided on a schedule, a schedule set by the 'powers that be' and we had to comply. Watch when 'they' say we should watch.
Then came devices like AppleTV (which I still love) and Roku along with services like Hulu and NetFlix. No need to leave work early, beat the traffic, go to the video store, rent the movie, watch it quickly and return it before late fees applied. These devices and services delivered content to us when we wanted it.
