Well, with no visible electronics.
The shrinking of technology has meant that we’re no longer forced to show off technology. Our TVs are on wheels and can come out when we feel like moving the projector from its cubby hole is too much of an effort, speakers are beginning to look like pictures. Our desktops have become laptops filed away in the magazine basket. Our music player is the ubiquitous little white box and the stacks of CDs and DVDs are quickly disappearing to storage (before they end up in recycling).
Sure, one could argue that we’re seeing a boom in theater-TV systems those systems are being placed in the family room – often in the basement.
We’re tidying away decades of electronic prominence to bring simplicity to our homes.
