    Almost Never Watch Tv

    I love the computer way better than the tv mostly because of sites like this where I can get in touch with like minded people. The TV is so passive but here on the computer I can do all kinds of things and meet new friends.

    if there wasnt so many repeats on tv nowadays, especially here in the uk, i would probably prefer tv, but when im on my laptop, i can always come on to the internet and find something a lot more interesting to pass my time, and if all else fails, i can always play games!!

    Computer Wins Hands Down

    It did not used to be this way but I find myself getting most of information and a lot of my entertainment on the computer. I sometimes have what I call random thoughts and with the computer I can find the answers I want nearly 100% of the time. I enjoy looking at sites where i...

    Better Selection

    There use to be something relaxing about channel hopping. Now, I seem to find TV more irritating than relaxing. I may be watching more TV shows but that doesn't mean that I have cable and choose to watch it as it airs. I actually can't stand the commercials, the every annoying...

    I use my I-phone for pretty much anything I

    need. It really is a great piece of kit. Television is pretty dreadful at the moment. It seems it's easier to import stuff that's successful overseas rather than write and create your own.

    Couldn'T Even Say When I Last Turned It On

    Except for a few shows (that I'm majorly behind in) I have no use for it. Had free cable for years but it was wasted on me. Neither of my kids watch it much-when they were growing up they were outside playing instead. Used to spend lots of time reading but now a lot of it's on...

    I feel too inactive when I plop in front of the tv.  I love the computer though.  As much as I enjoy physical activity, I much prefer intellectual stimulation and interaction.  I like the blogging, chatting, and it holds value to me.  I'll use the tv as a...
