“My theory is that PC-TV hybrid products like Viiv aim for a sweet spot that doesn’t exist. Very savvy consumers will hack together these setups themselves. The less savvy will just keep their TVs and computers separate. And the folks in the middle? If they’re around, nobody’s found them yet.”
But I think he fails to take into consideration the fact that none of the products advertised or released have done what they should do: Provide the easy of channel surfing with the power of downloadable on-demand content.
It’s not that people want two different devices. It’s that no one has made one that works yet.
Next week I’ll post about my current media PC and what I do with it.
