Ahh, my new HDTV is really beautiful. It causes me to stare at Discovery Channel until 2 a.m.
OK, OK, Maryam and I watched CSI Miami last night and, boy, does it look good!
But, it is rotting my brain. For one, YouTube or most Internet-based video just doesn't measure up anymore.
For two, I used to be able to read RSS feeds while watching TV. Now my new HDTV set keeps me from even turning on the computer.
Help, Discovery Channel has kidnapped my brain. I watched an inane show about expensive cars last night. On my old TV this is the kind of thing that would have survived four seconds before I flipped the TV. Now that it's in HDTV I'm just mesmerized.
Chris Pirillo warned me about this. He said he watches baseball games now and he HATES baseball. Why? Cause it's so pretty.
On the other hand, the HD DVD team here at Microsoft just started a blog. Maybe I'll invite them over for beer and Discovery channel! (They answered back that if I think the Discovery Channel looks good that I should check out what an HD-DVD looks like! (OK, OK, you guys are invited, I'll buy dinner, popcorn, and drinks, just bring me an HD-DVD!)
Oh, there's one more disadvantage of living in a geek area: I tried to buy an HD-DVD drive last night at Best Buy and the salesguy said he had a waiting list that was really long. Sigh.
