The current issue of technology review, argues in an article by Gregor Honsel for “Software fürs Sofa”. The argument is based on the distinction between “lean-in” and “lean-back” users, where the couch potato is the lean-back user and the typical PC-/Web-user is the lean-user (i.e., those guys that like to install plugins, updates, etc.).
In interactive digital television, two new tools have emerged: joost.com and babelgum.com, both use a similar technique to better use bandwith (the core idea is that clients send data to other clients in a peer-to-peer fashion so that bandwith is saved).
