Blogger Alan Pritt tells of helping his grandparents install a new TV in their house and how complicated it is:
Right now there are gaping holes in the market for products that are simple to use. Not just for Granddad, but for everyone that would prefer not to spend their vacation time reading instruction manuals.
The only hope I can see on the horizon is, yet again, Apple. The Apple TV is not yet good enough to replace my Grandparent’s complete setup, but I believe it will be in good time. It would just be nice if someone beat them to it. They need some proper competition. Maybe Sony are working on something in secret?
What, he hasn’t read the TVMama post about Sony Bravia’s Internet hook-up?
