baking bread



viewing the election

While I am not a huge fan of television provided by cable , dish, fiber, or for that matter any paid content contract , when you are able to receive television broadcast choices off the air for free, I have over the years have had a broader choice of content since being connected to the the internet. The election night proved that the interactivity of the user has more of their choice through the internet. By an internet connection, websites had the interactive maps that showed the election results auto updated and, with various mouse rollovers, could be zoomed in for various results from different areas and even senate and house results on demand. About the same thing that the TV networks would provide, only the TV networks passively provided the results at their discretion . With the internet’s ability to have your own choice of concurrently running web pages, maps and even live commentary ,such as twitter, which provides more broadbased comments and the ability to rebut from just about anyone able to text a message, this can be streamed to your desktop or networked devices. (or wide screen if you have the internet connected to it). Another example on how the internet and paid content subscription services are differing. With the connection speeds increasing and the boom in online video, some will choose the mouse over the remote.
