I am genuinely confused
My online contact makes me laugh. He knows I need to write to keep sane, so he's always asking me to write pieces for the enormous number of websites he owns and maintains.
Yes, me who barely switches on the TV from one month to the next, writing about advanced televisions. The type with a 40" screen as a minimum, that you hang on the wall like a picture. These are not just smart TVs, they're almost AI level. You can watch TV on them. You can play games on them. You can stream movies and catch up with on demand services, play music , hook up games consoles, view photographs , use social media and Skype.
They won't make you a cuppa tea or pour you a glass of wine but you can watch enormous images of both actions on a screen that's so thin you'd think you could roll it up and take it away with you. Some of them are curved to make the experience even more immersive and they all need a sound bar to make the sound 3D and super stereo.
Many of them cost a small fortune and some are as pricy as a new car. (£9,000/$13,500).
What I want to know is - WHY?
Does anyone have one of these behemoths? I'd have trouble fitting a 40" screen in a room that's only 7 feet long, that's for sure. So where on earth do you put it? Does it dominate the room like I suspect or is it actually not that intrusive given that it's quite thin?
