One of the most common questions related to television is, "Where` s the remote? "When the first simple television (TV) was built in 1928, did not come with a remote control. The wonder everything was on a disk, a light (which tends to make the images orange in appearance) and a moderate need electricity.

In the 1930 `s, televisions (TVs) has evolved to all electrical components. The typical screen was about 6X8 inches and generally got into a much larger cabinet. In late 1930 `s televisions were made by several manufacturers in the United States and Europe and the Soviet Union.

World War II delayed the progress of recreational television while turning the technology necessary military communications. Many communication devices are made accessible via cable television. Unlike the Viet Nam war, civilians were not able to see the battles that were fought and highly sought remained radio for news and entertainment.

In 1945, many Americans believed that families had suffered from enough of war and was rewarded with televisions (TVs). The images were of better quality than on television before and only in black and white. News programming had captured and little by little, games, sports and other programs of interest were available.

Technically, the ability to produce programs in color occurred in the 1940 `s, however, was in mid-1960` s major broadcasters began to produce their programming in color. The first color TV did not provide exact replica of color. It is often noted natural dye that can be corrected by manipulating the "ink" on the television dial.

For those of us old enough to remember the quote from John F. Kennedy, we will also remember his lies in the state and his funeral and burial will be displayed on all major stations. This was the first major event in U.S. history that could be seen by people throughout the United States on television (TV). Although miles apart, people in the U.S. felt more connected to each other because of this new technology.

The 1970 `s was the biggest wave of television shopping. Major appliance stores (Sears and others) had banks of televisions on display. Daytime television "soap operas" became a favorite of many mothers stay at home. Game shows became more abundant as the film that introduced us to favorites such as John Waynne, Robert Young, "Beaver Cleaver" and many, many more. These were the idyllic families, devoid of abuse, unless the language of love, arguments, and other behaviors seen in today `s homes and societies. Television commercials have changed the `tools of childhood that previously had been invented and make believe Barbie and Ken dolls, talking bears, more sophisticated bicycles and carts and the like.

Satellite influenced the changes in television (TV) in mid-1980 `s. Pay per view programming is made possible through the encryption of broadcast programming and cable viewers only had the additional equipment to watch them.

Today, digital and satellite television (TV) to provide clearer images to the viewer and provide several hundred channels to choose from. TVs have gone from 6x8 picture tubes in closets huge thin instruments sitting atop pedestals. large screen television gives the appearance of football players kicking a `s living and monster trucks to drive directly to the viewer. television today can be accessed from a computer `s, as well as the cell phone.

I can not imagine what you would see in a crystal ball, if I were to seek changes in television technology, but I know that improvements and innovative concepts are explored daily.
