Teeny TV

We’re accustomed to thinking of TV as a casual form of visual entertainment, yet even so it’s unexpectedly liberating to reduce Commander in Chief to something as portable as a soda can (ABC is starting to offer hit series online for free, only with ads you can’t skip). Sure, you can watch shows on a giant plasma screen at home too. But the iPod version is more genuinely of the cultural moment: TV that’s downloaded, displayed, digested, disposed of.
