DVI slowly going the way of the buffalo


Omigosh DVI, I can’t believe you’re leaving already. You JUST got here! Stick around for a bit, huh? I won’t miss your prohibitively expensive cables and the constant fear of pending your fragile pins every time I move my monitor around on my desk, but I’ll miss the feeling of knowing that you transmit a relatively clean, all-digital signal.

If only there were a suitable replacement that transmitted audio as well. I’d call it “HDMI” or something similar and I’d try to make the plug the size of a FireWire plug. Seriously though, it’s thought that DVI-equipped devices will drop from 112 million in 2007 to just 3 million in 2011 thanks to increased support for HDMI.
