WHICH FIRST: TV OR COMPUTER? (opens in new window/tab)

  1. I hate to admit it, but these days, I plop on the couch with my wireless-internet laptop, and then turn the tv on.

    I still miss the days when I had the WebTV plus that could surf the ‘net on the TV itself, while watching TV on the Picture-in-Picture. I dont miss the 56k modem speed though.

  2. If I must choose one, it’s the TV about 2:1. But most often, we’ll do something else.

    I empathize with your desire for more interaction. I’ve tried contests, quizzes, direct questions… Hell, I’m giving away free tickets right now, and participation is still low. I don’t know what to do. It is frustrating and embarassing.

  3. Ultimately, the first thing that I head for are my cats! After that, the computer.

  4. Lots of other things before either, but always computer. I hate TV. The only thing I like about it is BET and that’s mostly so I can bite dance moves and think about new fashion possibilities. (Yes, I am lame, thank you for noticing.)

  8. I walk in through my kitchen and usually turn on the small tv for the news.

  10. Well, I guess this is a bit of a hit! Thanks all (and keep them coming). I guess a category tag is on the way…

    Belt: I do the same thing, wireless notebook in the vicinity of the tube (although the tube is frequently showing Xbox games instead of programming).

    Tommy: You may have inspired a dedicated post to what you’ve mentioned, probably for tomorrow. Stay tuned.

    R*: Hate TV? BET acolyte? You continue to shatter my cherished illusions of you. (I get my dance moves from endzone-strutting NFL players.)

  12. Very high-tech. But then, that means you hit the computer first, obviously.
