The Internet is coming to TV and other goods such as cellphones and household items. According to companies such as Nokia, Asustek and Sony, innovations will soon be created to connect Internet technology with everyday items.
Howard Stringer, the chief executive of Sony, one of the leading television sellers, speculates that ninety percent of all of his products will be able to connect to the Web.
Even Nokia plans to expand its services to connect its buyers to the Internet by implementing maps and music into their features. Nokia believes that just hardware is insufficient in expanding their services.
Jimmy Woo Park of Samsung reported to the New York Times that “In the next five years, [Samsung is] not only going to provide hardware, but content through [its] devices, in an easy, more convenient way. TV is no longer just TV. TV is interactive TV these days. You will use the same TV and the same remote control, but have completely different functionality.”
Taiwanese electronic company, Asustek, has built a touchscreen computer with a built-in keyboard that allows its buyers to surf the Internet on your television screen. According the New York Times, Asustek hopes that soon every household item will turn into a computer display.
Even through the recession some companies like CompUSA, see potential for the general demand of computers. Gilbert Fiorentino chief Executive of the Technology Products Group at Systemax, realizes that consumers will still continue to purchase goods, even computers.
