If Facebook games offered some gameplay (which some do, ie Bejewelled, Desktop Defender) and not just a blatant and sickening attempt to grab eyeballs and personal information, it would be harder for me to hate them and their creators.
I started on a clunker laptop, got a tower, then a bigger monitor, then a nicer tower. (If there was a good place for it I would get a projector).
I spend a lot of time gaming with old timey radio on in the background. Its amazing how much broadcasting doesn't change (dl some Johnny Dollar, its pretty decent; also The Goon Show-see my sig).
From time to time I dl an anime series (dubs need not apply).
I'm not into sports, so that's not a deal breaker, I don't talk to anyone at work about TV shows (heaven preserve us from LOST fans [I do watch Lost, but I'm not a Believer (I was about to explain an episode to a coworker, but I cut it short and said a fat mexican blew up and old ship, and that was cool] ), so I can wait until the series is canceled and cooled off to enjoy it (Homicide, The Wire, etc).
Oh, and my family didn't own a TV until I was ~8, so not its probably not as ingrained.
Of course the above mentions that the interview was on CNBC, but not the date or a link to a CNBC (that I can find).
