February 17, 2009 will be a sad day. That is when we will finally make the complete switchover from analog to video broadcasting. Now, I could go on how this sucks for poor people who can’t afford cable or a new digital tuner, but I will save that for someone else to do. The reason it sucks for me is because my mom bought me this small black and white travel TV a few years back. I am sure a lot of other people have items like this as well. It doesn’t even have a port to input a source of any kind and will be virtually dead. Oh well, I guess I have a free gadget for some sort of hacking project. It could be fun to try to replace the tuner, or more simply, add A/V inputs. Will I ever do any of this? Probably not.
