<p>Talk about the PC and TV convergence comes from many perspectives, including broadcasting, computing, and interactivity. Some of the discussions were motivated by the screen that people see. The last 10 years did see some changes in the nature of the screen in both cases--clearly PC monitors and TV screens are becoming available in many different sizes and shapes depending on the user?s needs. Also, the quality of both has improved. Now we see good quality flat monitors everywhere and high-definition TV is slowly becoming part of our society. With DVD, I often see people watching a movie on their PC during their airplane flight. Is this what was meant by convergence?</p>
