How Most Non-Tech Savvy People Feel About The Analog To Digital TV Conversion
This is probably the funniest video I’ve ever seen about the “simplicity” of changing over to the new Digital Television Broadcast Air Signal that is coming, by mandate, in February of 2009.
One of my students sent this to me and told me that it reminded them of one of my tech. classes (this year) where I showed them how “easy” it was to connect a laptop to a television or LCD projector… Some of them didn’t agree with me about the “easy part” after I went through how to connect via VGA, or S-Video, or Composite, or Component, or God forbid -RF modulation!!! We still have a way to go with regard to making some of these things “easy”, and LESS cables would be nice! Enjoy the video!
