Linking URLs on the TV

Posted 2011.08.15 20.28 in Computers/Internet/Technology, Music/Movies/TV by Stephanie

Here’s something that has been bugging me for about the last 5 years or so.¬†When you see a URL on the TV, why can’t you just click it and have the link open up on your browser on your computer?

Ok I know the TV isn’t usually connected to the computer. Doesn’t matter. What about the digital hub stuff that they’ve been going on about for a few years? Between all the digital devices we’ve got in our homes, there should be a way to make this happen.

If the rumours of an Apple-branded television are true, then I expect this has to be one of the features. Click a link on the tv screen and it opens on your iPad or your Mac. So you can keep watching the show, while you follow the link.

So I was reading an article this morning called “The 25 Greatest PCs of All Time”, and was completely stunned to discover that the article contained my name and a link to one of my websites. I’m mentioned in the same paragraph as Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple computers. Tee hee.

Now if only there was some way to cash-in on this kind of thing.

In the link, look for me under item #23.
