That Flat Screen TV Needs A Screensaver

It's no secret that flat-screen TVs are all the rage these days, with people spending thousands of dollars to get the latest models. The picture quality is stunning, and with that in mind, some are wondering why they would ever want to show a completely blank screen on such a TV. If they've got the screen, why not have it show something? With that in mind, a number of new companies have been created to let TV owners display artwork on their TV. They're licensing images and offering services that would automatically update the images that the TV displays. Of course, do you really need to license images just to display them in your own home? With the rise in home networking equipment, and PC-like devices connected to the TV, how hard would it be for users to create their own simple solutions that do about the same thing?
