One of the First Television
If you have ever had one of these TV's you know just how far technology has come in this department. To the left is one of the first TV ever made for the public to buy? The television was released to the public in the mid nineteen twenties. This particular television used to have something called the color tube. A color tube is similar to an ink cartridge in the printer. Every so often the tubes would run out of color and would need to be replaced. The ink was expense that is part of the reason why many people did not have them when they first came out. Looking at what was shown on the TV when it first came out is different to what is shown on the TV today. The only thing that was really shown on the Television is weather, war, and news. Yes, there were comedy shows like "I love Lucy", but it was mainly informational. Now days the war information is really limited to what the public eye can see. There are more news channels than there used to be, but it does not cover the same kind of information. There are channels for children only and adult only. There are channels for cooking, home decorating, and how to repair household items. All of which you can also find on the Internet, therefore more and more information is being put out for the public to know, but less and less family time that used to be present when TVs first came out. Further in my blog I will be talking about how many shows were available to watch compared today's program watching. My next blog post will take a look at the affects the brain in the development process.
