Response to "Expanding my Definition"
It really is strange that we are so passive with forms of old media such as newspaper and television. In fact, print newspapers are turning into a waste of money because it's so easily accessible online these days. A recent example of your second point on forcing consumers to conform to the technology is Apple's release of their products that only have USB-C ports. I had to purchase an adapter in order to use my hard drive and mouse for my new computer. Soon enough, the only products that will be available will only have USB-C ports. I appreciate your final point on new media being a medium for individual representation. I know I personally try to make my devices work for me and not the other way around. I turned off all of my notifications (which is why it takes me forever to respond, but I was tired of this expensive electronic box bossing me around). It's a very optimistic way of looking at the situation. Hthrxlynn (talk) 21:45, 27 August 2019 (EDT)
