Intelligent TV

It would be interesting if TVs of today were a lot more intelligent in reflecting our habits and tastes as well as catering to our personalization needs. At any given time, they should have the capacity to learn our natural patterns of viewing and incorporate that into providing us with a schedule of shows through the day. This is one aspect that will optimize a TV viewership especially as network services work to achieve such goals in chasing after ratings. Even advertising markets could change dynamically to the habits of viewers. Also, on satellite and cable TV there are just so many channels available. Unless, one has a double screen TV or a view-in option, it would be difficult to watch multiple shows at once. Catering to individual needs is the answer to many. It also means people can watch all their missed shows to match their busy lives. One thing, that TV does is show repeats of shows so people could catch-up where they have missed. However, such shows also invariably repeat a little too much boring the likes of many as well. There is also the need to move the notion of a TV and transform it into a more ubiquitous viewing. The utility of a TV needs to harness its surroundings within the everyday gadget of a home. It needs to be available over the internet. And, it needs to allow people to connect socially. Internet will also make quality of viewing possible as well especially in order to view channels that have border restrictions. Even the approach to 3-D TVs needs to be pushed faster in advancement so people do not have to wear glasses in order to take use of such a facility. The more intelligent our electronics become the more versatile they are for us to use, and the more we can take advantage of them as part of our everyday lives. TVs could even take inspiration from the minority report  or even the marvels of shield and provide us a more thinner set of glass displays to advance most display technology in general.
