Probably the TV. This is tough! But, I can see living without it, whereas living without the computer I can't see as being doable.

Definitely TV. You can watch movies and TV shows on the Internet anyway.

It depends if the mysterious power is our government and whether they take over the medium remaining.

Most likely TV goes

Internet now basically became my new entertainment. I can't chat with people all over the world on TV. One day the Computer is going to completely replace TV. Just like DVD replaced VCR tapes.

It seems that anymore you have to have some sort of online access -- so it would have to be the TV going. Though I've recorded hours of programming every week off channels like History, Discovery, Science Channel, and Biography.

TV gone. Yes. The internet helps me earn $ on ebay. The TV just pushes me to buy stuff I don't need. I can't google on the TV, or communicate with people overseas.

My choice:
Keep the Computer. I hate TV anyways. If something on TV really interested me I could eventually find it on YouTube or something. Also I can't order all my goodies from a TV, well unless it's Liberty Mutual diabetic supplies or that swag off of QVC (are they still around?)
So yeah, smash the TV for sure.
almost everything can be found on youtube, HULU or rapidshare.

there's even a site that has minisodes! encapsulations of movies done by cartoon rabbits that are very amusing & ugly. i think they're rabbits...

Boston Legal 3rd season has us stumped, though. can't find all the episodes.

abc online is a bit hard though. i have to download the player every time i want to see a grey's episode i've missed (which is usually) & it is slow buffering.

TV's been gone, I haven't watched it in 5 years. If it ain't on the net, or a DVD, I don't need it.

I only watch TV for local news when there's a disaster, like a forest fire or something equally dramatic. Even then I laugh at the newscasters. I haven't watched TV on a regular basis for over thirty years, and I haven't missed it at all. So, this question is a no-brainer. The TV is out!
