    I think for those that are even moderately tech savvy, this is becoming more and more normal. Netflix and HBO just made a deal with NF offering certain HBO programming. I think this is a sign of where TV is going and what you are talking about.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    It's incredibly simple to connect either a windows based laptop or a Macbook with an HDMI cable. Simply plug in the HDMI cable to both devices & select the HDMI setting on the television. I need to restart the monitor if using the Macbook but that's merely a 5 second inconvenience.

    I leave an old rebuilt computer plugged into the television in my home office & I access it from my desk via wireless mouse & keyboard.

    Agreed. I finally caved and bought a Mac mini, and that is literally my ALL MEDIA source. Music, images, movies, tv, etc. torrents and amazon prime video (but that's secondary, I have that for free 2 day shipping)

    Some thing, I dunno.

    The only time I miss TEE VEE is when the olympics were on. I finally figured out how to proxy so it looked like I was in Canada, but I only got to see canadian events which is better'n nuthin' but I missed ALL of summer Olympics. Was pissed. Some things (few) are just 20 times better live.
