The TV in the Cloud

I received an email last week from a company I buy my electrical goods from. It advertised a Sony TV, the Sony KDL32CX520. At first site this television seemed just like other digital televisions that I had come across. However, in the small print there was something that I had not thought about before: it was Internet ready with a web browser, some apps and access to the excellent BBC iPlayer; moreover the advert also featured other TVs that were Internet ready.  Previously I thought that all the movement towards cloud computing would come through computer devices such as the Chromebook and tablet computers. TVs like the Sony KDL32CX520 are coming from another direction.

Update 13th November: looks like Sony is working its way towards some computer-based ecology that embraces TVs, tablets and the Internet.
