Yes, it’s that time of year, where we start to think about replacing the TV.
But first, a short history lesson…
Technology waits for no-one – even for tech-heads like me!
So this is our first 4K TV. In English this means it has four-times the picture detail of an HD Telly. OK, nothing from the main terrestrial broadcasters is in 4k yet, but the BBC are trialling it via iPlayer with some gorgeous footage of the recent Earth 2 series and Amazon and Netflix are already showing off the technology via their streaming TV service showcasing their big programmes. Additional, Sky is remastering some of their blockbuster films for download (at around 15Gb!!).
If I thought getting my head round the workings of our PREVIOUS TV was challenging, you should see this one!
…and even though it’s the same make as our previous TV, so much has changed! Pass the aspirin and my reading glasses!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
