TV or no TV

I don't know about anyone else, but the TV (my one and only) is more a entertaining companion to me than anything else, therefore I get very fed up with the constant repeats of repeats of a select few programs and movies that the networks foist on us. (yes ... I know I could always turn it off, but then who would I talk to) These, of course are interdispersed with ads for all the great new programs one would like to watch ... which can only be found on apps that are on phones, iPads and Tablets. What's the go with that?

Personally, I see it as a means of fazing out TVs altogether, so that the little devices will almost become a part of our make-up, like a bionic extension. Nobody will be able to detatch themselves. Why should you when everything you could ever need is in one small gadget? Right?

Technology, in many ways, is a good thing, yet when it becomes part of who we are I think it's time to take a long hard look at where our lives are heading. It could be straight over the nearest cliff.

Just my thoughts for the day. Have a good one, folks, and don't forget there is a big wide world beyond that glass screen. I know we're in iso but you can always check out your own back yard.
