Wie nun jeder weiss war ich vor einem Jahr bei Onkel Henry.
Er sagte mir persönlich, dass der DIGITAL FERNSEH (TV)BEREICH sein persönlich besonderes Augenmerk (Interesse) verdient.
INTERNET wird sich in Zukunft nicht mehr im BÜRO sondern im Wohnzimmer abspielen am FERNSEHER mit allen Spielen und logischerweise mit 3D SOUND.
Sorry aber diese NEWS ist eine REVOLUTION
