    Hi there

    What's a Television". I'm sure I saw on some old House decorating program some sort of Monster flat Black window hanging off a wall and totally looking ridiculous in the room it was situated in.

    I'm sure in about 5 years time youngsters will be thinking about a "Television" in the same way as the old Flexowriter (paper tape teletype) or a Telex machine.

    TV is dead these days --pity the broadcasters haven't realised it yet.


    Cheers

    Well, cable tv is indeed dead, but I think its more than 5 years before holographic image viewing becomes the norm..

    At least I hope so, since it will take me that long to pay off that 75 inch monster that is sitting in my family room!

    I don't see that we really need install DVDs any more. I have a laptop and a tablet that don't even have a DVD drive.

    They have been talking holographic since the Laser was developed. It is always "5 years away."
    The trouble with 3D TV that you can rotate, move around, look underneath, is it is not easy to direct. Everything becomes "theater in the round." That's probably the real reason they keep saying it is not yet technically feasible.

    Modern flash drives make the installation much faster than the old DVDs.

    Yes, USB 3.x devices are pretty fast !

    I don't put them in my desktop builds anymore. I have one external USB HP LightScribe Drive that I use when I have to.

    Once we get decent Holographic projection (currently being worked on) the idea of having to use an ugly monstrous piece of Black glass to hideously ruin your room will seem just absurd.

    But not everyone thinks it's ugly. I agree broadcast TV is dying out, but I still want a big screen and sound. I don't to watch things on a PC or tablet.

    Speakers get a bad rap too. I still like gigantic speakers. Now people say it's an eyesore. In the 80s they were sexy. Something like these:

    Jody there is nothing better than a pair of liquid cooled component Dynaudio speakers with the bass component filled with quartz sand and a simple Carver amp, eyesore or not, the sound is perfect.

    Except that the last line of the article kills the whole thing:

    That said, this isn’t the final farewell for DVDs: you’ll still be able to buy Windows 10 on DVD.

    Yea, I mean why use a much less expensive DVD disk to store backup software when you can spend more for a USB thumb drive?
    Burning, printing and packaging millions of DVDs would be far more expensive than loading up millions of USB drives.
