Re: Smart console wars
mhhf1ve,

The history of platform wars has not been a happy one. I really can't think of any example in which either the consumers or any of the businesses involved came out better off for one. Platform wars call for a more aggressive regulatory policy than the US is currently willing to provide; they violate at least the spirit of antitrust and assured competition, and are little more than a spiteful game of beggar-my-neighbor.

Smart console wars
Amazon and Google are starting a platform war. And Google is going nuclear by removing YouTube from FireTV devices starting in 2018. I think that will nearly kill my desire to use my FireTV. If Amazon retaliates by removing Prime Videos from Chromecast -- that will be a mistake for both sides.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
I'm optimistic that some company will come up with a micro-projector that could turn living rooms into mini IMAX theaters. I'd really like to be able to get rid of a "TV stand" and all the consoles in it -- and maybe mount smart devices on a wall or the ceiling to free up some more walking space.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
I'm not sure if it ever came to fruition, but I think it was Samsung was working on a close-range projector so it looked like a small entertainment center but projected a big picture onto the wall behind it. I would love to have something like that. I love the idea of a projector but they can be kind of a pain to set up and connect to.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
Well, I'm actually hoping that screens go away, and projectors become the main display technology. Then I'll only need a blank wall instead of a whole dedicated area in my living room.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
@mhhf1ve I would agree but you never know the way technology turn up as this days everyone wants all in one solution... and sometimes technology what did not pickup much in the past in 6 years everyone start hyping about it... on the top of my head example would be Netbooks did not pick up in 1999/2000 but from 2005 to 2010 everyone was getting one... go fugure...

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
Hopefully, there will always be "PC monitors" -- which would effectively be "dumb TVs" since almost no one uses OTA reception anymore. I can't imagine PC monitors will go away, and they'll probably get bigger -- to be the size of a living room TV someday.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
@afwriter you can experiment by getting a friend to tune into the same thing. But it only would work if that friend would have established some different enough viewing habits to warrant getting different targeted ads.
