Sometimes it feels like TV's going the way of the radio.

Maybe then I'll have a TV in my car someday...

TV is how the government controls us.

I listen to the radio all the time.

And I prefer watching tv on a tv... I think the great thing about it is how lazy you get to be with it. With watching shows online, I have to decide what show I want to watch, which episode I want to watch... that's so much work, dude!

Really, most people I know in real life are somewhat computer illiterate. It's an e-mail and shopping machine to them.

TV will be here for a while longer.

From what I can tell, less people listen to the radio than read newspapers, and newspapers are considered a dying/dead medium.

Sure!

No. Just like radio and newspaper, it's evolving.

Nah...I think TV's and computers will eventually merge.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 11/13/10 - 12:27:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
It is for me.

Where I live, you can't get a signal through an antena, you must either have satelite or cable.

I haven't had either for 8 years - I use my TV to watch DVDs.

I think eventually people will start using large computer monitors that function as both monitors and TVs. So no, I think it's simply changing.

That fewer people listen to radio than read newspapers.

That seems insane to me. The world is a crazy place.

I'd still say that TV still has a pretty big influence on society, probably even more than it has in a long time. It's not going anywhere.
