I can't articulate exactly what television is anymore, but I know it when I see it.
Maybe. But I can't help it, for me my iPhone is a computer with a phone app.
So do I.
I know I can and do "watch television" on my iPad and Kindle Fire and iPhone and desktop and laptop computers.
And I can view YouTube on my television.
And I can watch television shows through YouTube on my iPad and Kindle Fire and iPhone and desktop and laptop computers and my television, and if I had the right model, on my refrigerator.
And Netflix has an original television show that I can watch on my iPad and Kindle Fire and iPhone and desktop and laptop computers and my television, and if I had the right model, on my refrigerator.
"Television" has become so ubiquitous, I know what it is when I see it, but I don't. And "a television" today looks an awful lot like an Apple iMac or an HP Touchsmart.
I know it's not important, but how language evolves randomly is curious. :scratchin
From the moment I saw my first LG fridge with a TV, I wondered if anyone actually bought the thing just because it had a TV. Seems kinda strange.
It would be awfully nice within arm's reach of the bed......[and I'm assuming it has an HDMI port for the DIRECTV® box.... ]
I can't imagine having a refrigerator in the bedroom unless you're immobilized. Seriously, can you imagine buying a fridge just because it had a TV in the door?
