The interactive tv tv bosses and trend watchers forecast one or two decades ago is in every living room now. Perhaps in a slightly different form, like a media box or a PC, but it's there and people don't find it very special anymore. On the contrary, it's a normal thing nowadays to play a movie over the internet, or play a game online. I think it has made our lives nicer as we can choose to use this technology or not. Those who like it (like me) will use it and those who dislike it can pretend like it's not there.
