My own personalised television thing

I got a fantastic comment from a friend of mine to whom I had sent an invitation to online music streaming site Spotify:

If, as a child, I had been told by my future self that one day I could play any LP I wanted on my own personalised television thing, I would’ve hit myself for being a liar. Truly remarkable.

I remember in the early 1980s my dad telling me that one day there would be television sets thin enough to hang on your wall.  I thought it was science fiction … and now I’m staring at one on my “own personalised television thing” as I type this.
