Interactive TV on smartphones ? What does it mean ?

Smartphones are on 3/4G transmission, which maybe costly by the minutes.

With internet capability, free hotspots are widely available. Its free. But iptV or internet TV can be run separated from phone features. And interactive two way TV can move and compute big data on phones.

Eventually small phones will be a personal secretary.

What it means is, phones are 3/4g; interactive TV is wifi free hotspot or free instagram on DTV multiplexer channels.

TV is a nice display. With hdmi standards you can have free 720i(interlaced with virtual pixels) for better resolution.
720p is true pixels and less resolution.

The ARM cpu development for low power consumption and uses reduced number of transistors, can be designed for computer operation displayed on TV monitor using a set-top box for either analog or digital TV.

TV thus became interactive, and can display ipTV. or games and other apps.

CableTV then connect homes with a data center set-top box which can store large amount of data for local backup of data for TV display.

Re: Interactive TV on smartphones ? What does it mean ?

The design of smartphones are basically a communication system to iSP(3/4g or wireless) to be connected to internet. then the browser took over and use packets to get services. These packets(also systemd) can do device drivers for USB peripherals. Systemd packets are defined one at a time. Which can disrupt operating system in sequential registry, but most Linux distros are dabble in it now, including Debian testing.

So, the fewer the systemd packets, the less bugs galore.

Re: Interactive TV on smartphones ? What does it mean ?

De Icaza thinks that apple store and its over 100,000 apps and games are the desktop of the future. That people have moved to apple rather than using Linux with gnome. He did not mention Google android with its apps and games. They are indeed, smartphone apps and games. The few standards of codes used made smartphones easy to have a desktop, as well as a cloud application. These codes are unified under the FCC approved digital TV software standards. So, smartphones can easily be made into an interactiveTV, the new home device that can be used to remotely control all the electronic home appliances.

Linus did have an attitude about gnome programming based on gtk UI. He prefers KDE desktop. But Linux tries to do too much creating framentation to several generations of IBMPC computers. Resulting in distros of i486 and i586 based kernels for the latest i986 computers. Just to preserve software not to be broken. whereas, windows can use automatic software versions to satisfy latest as well as older cpu.

So, tiny Linux can salvage simple apps and games. Switch kernels and do latest cpu instructions. CPUs are still backwared compatible with software code standards of old computers.

Interactive TV can do apple store apps and games using webGL.

This made TVs same on the internet. The internet has to be on public cloud.

InteractiveTV devices will be used at home having all the resources as CableTV set-top box with cable modem for internet interactive nature.

Re: Interactive TV on smartphones ? What does it mean ?

Interactive TV used to be games console on channel 3/4 transmission.

Today, interactive TV uses a remote at first to program the tV. Now the remote is smartphone to activate channel 3/4. Someday, to activate http:domains/subdomain to access website ipTV, which makes the TV a computer moniter(tablet).

So, it will not take long to have tablet used as interactive TV anywhere websites can display TV content.

This means cableTV suppliers will have wifi to service tablets off homebase, with a server of their own for all their programming. Once you sign on the cableTV server, you get all their programming by subdomains.
