When will it finally kick the bucket? 2020? I can barely find anything worth watching anymore.

there should be a poll of bitcoin users.  i think there is a correlation, an inverse relationship between how many months you've been following bitcoin and the number of hours a week you watch tv.

For the past six years, I've only watched one show from TV in its entirety and only on the internet--America's Got Talent. All my other free time has been reading, working (not playing), MFC (dot come) research  Wink, etc., online with Bitcoin consuming me for over a year now. That reminds me--I wonder how Sandi Slap is doing with her Bitcoin contest.

I watch a lot of tv, but am rarely able to suspend my disbelief. I am obsessed with (over) analyzing everything, including myself. Some people find this annoying about me. Instead of deconstructing the idiots around me, I use TV to indulge this penchant.

Hm, would it be correct to say you use TV as an escape?

That quote would probably be correct about 90% of tv viewers...

oh this makes me happy I converted some USD a few years back to buy their stock, "and Samsung saw an 18% increase in TV shipments, making it top dog."

He left out what percentage LED tv sales increased this year.


@OP  His article does not really fit with the message you were trying to convey as it says nothing of the numbers of subscriptions to broadcasting services. He is simply poiting out that tv sales are down overall. I am inclined to agree with his opinion that it is due more to a lack of motivation to replace current tv sets than it is with less tv viewers.

Do you have links you can offer us for overall viewership, subscription and or hours spent watching? Those would be good indicators.  We would probably want to then look into studies of where people spend the now freed up time from fewer tv viewing hours to complete our analysis.

If you're not excited by the idea of being an early adopter 'now', then you should come back in three or four years and either tell us "Told you it'd never work!" or join what should, by then, be a much more stable and easier-to-use system. - GA

It depends on what you mean by the term "escape." I doubt it, because I learn more about the zeitgeist with a remote control, than by talking to some consumerist drone. I have little use for the abuse of the brainwashed and developmentally arrested society created by years of mostly vacuous television. It helps to understand the enemy. Besides, all media is converging.
