The way laptops have evolved into basically a mini-cinema is amazing. However, the difference is quite big. At the cinema you have that sick feeling in your stomach, where you've just sneaked some food in, or got in to an R-rated when you're three years too young. Whereas with a laptop, you're shamefully eating away at the snacks you found down the side of your bed, whilst needing the toilet. It maybe so close, but it's also so far.
Television is still the ultimate lean-forward experience. It has shown that it can embrace digital opportunities, and is now beginning to understand how its content can be delivered and monetised worldwide in a way that wasn't possible ten years ago. As Darwin pointed out, you don't have to be the strongest to survive, you just need to be adaptable, and TV has shown that it can be just that. But there are still reefs ahead on which TV could founder. Television may be adaptable, but it is not very good at changing course quickly.
