We have a large flat screen LCD TV with the PS3 connected to it. We have the PS3 Camera on top of the TV for the "move" technology for many of the games we have. golf, and bowling mostly. The camera also has a built in microphone so you can visit with others over the PS3 network. I think this is great technology. You can visit with friends or family over the network with live video and audio. The camera is always there, doesn't bother us a bit.
As far as the book "1984" is concerned, I read it many years ago, thought it was an interesting novel. I've met a few people in the past that see the book as some sort of bible, a scripture of prophetic importance. I never could buy into that.
