We’ll Show You Consumer Electronics

Lean back, lean back, and find your remote: on this second 2012 episode of inThirty we talk television. With the Consumer Electronics Show in full swing and its 35 footballs fields of floorspace teaming with gadgets, we want to know if any of them can score a touch down in the living room. We discuss whether innovation in the TV hardware front, pixels and bezels and remotes, is what’ll win the living room, or whether content is king and cable providers days are numbered. What does it take to make a 10 foot interface work, will Apple TV revolutionize the market, what’s Chaim’s favorite guilty pleasure (hint, it’s on the Disney channel), listen to find out.
