My new TV doesn’t fit the old entertainment center, so I string up a long, gray coaxial cable from the jack on one side of the room, tape it around the doorway and hide the excess coil under the temporary TV stand on the other side of the room. Not the most high-tech operation at home, but we’re getting there.
My antiquated entertainment habits are not the norm in the high-tech industry. The internet and a slurry of devices have created a revolution in TV entertainment similar to MP3’s revolution of music entertainment. And most of the techies around the Claris office have severed their cable TV packages for good. Cable TV as we’ve known it has joined the cassette tape, the 8 track, the VCR and the wall-mounted rotary phone in the realm of outdated technology.
