Last night we finished watching a recorded episode of Huff on television. The iBook was plugged into the television, and the QuickTime player was running full screen. Made perfect sense.
Then Catherine went to bed, and I decided to watch the Steve Jobs keynote presentation from Macworld. So I unplugged the computer from the television and brought it over to the couch and started watching.
After ten minutes, I suddenly realized that I could be watching the keynote on the television. So I got up, plugged it into the television and, just like Huff, I watched Steve Jobs on the Big Screen.
I believe I have now experienced convergence in its most primitive form. I watched Huff on the television because, well, it was a “TV programme.” I watched the keynote on the laptop screen because it was “computer stuff.” The irony is that I was using the same player to watch both. Old habits due hard.
