The Living Room Trend

More and more people are moving away from the traditional living room setup of television, cable/satellite box, gaming console, and a disk media player. People are tired of the limited availability of entertainment resources with this setup--it forces conformity and punishes the adventurous. Nowadays, people are starting to hook their computers up directly to their television so they can have access to all of their favorite music, movies, games, and TV shows whenever they like.

With modern technology, it is now possible to have only one entertainment box hooked up to your TV--a computer. A computer coupled with a television can do anything the other setup can, but with the added bonus of only having to deal with one box. Tired of having 5 remotes? I know I am. It seems like whenever I decide to do something else with my TV, whether it be watch a movie or play a round of Call of Duty multiplayer, all the remotes I have are visible except the one I actually need. With my PC, all I need is my TV remote, a game controller, and my trusty Joystix Pro membership to do anything I want to from my couch.
