I couldn't agree more. There are, currently, three of us in our house and each evening the TV is on whilst each of us also browses, e-mails or socialises on smartphone, IPad and laptop. Meanwhile the remote is used to mute the TV each time the adverts comes on.
So, there are three of us only half paying attention to TV programmes and no attention at all (not even listening) to the TV ads. How much of the advertising spend is simply wasted on TV ads? It's not even a grapeshot approach anymore if TV users can totally blank the ads. As you say the future is mobile. Blinkx have cracked the problem of monetizing video search.....if they truly can crack mobile in the same way then the sound of cash cascading into the Blinkx coffers will be deafening.
Good point on the screen size, the new Samsung's a monster, and agreed, especially for thsoe living in the sticks and away from the fibre optics cellular broadband has for many I reckon overtaken copper.
You young whipper snapper! I'm 65 and have no problems with short sight but I would not want to watch anything long form on my smartphone. The IPad on the other hand I could look at all day .......and indeed, according to my wife I all too often do.
I don't know how you, Boff, Pensioner, and all the other older people among us feel about this, but I am 57 years old and my eyes aren't what they used to be. I am not about to watch videos on a smartphone. Their screens simply are not big enough for me. This stuff is for younger people; at least that's my take on the matter.
I have three 23 inch monitors on my desk for my PC. Those I can see.
