iphone 4S 17 Dec 2012

Back in "the day" (well and truly before my day...) people used to gather in front of electrical shop windows to watch that marvellous new-fangled gadget, the (cathode ray) television.

TV came to Australia in 1956, in time for the Mebourne Olympics. Colour arrived on 1 March, 1975. In 2012 there's a whole new world of web-integrated TV, HD, LED, LCD, SmartTV, Blue-Ray, gaming, WIFI.....

And ion the 6th floor of the Myer department store in Sydney, you can settle back on a comfy leather sofa to contemplate the cricket, and your next purchase.

  1. I remember exactly where my brothers and I were on the day the first television started (in 1956).. and what we watched. It was Noddy and Bigears, and I was entranced!
