If you've been getting into the convenience and usability of the smartphone and tablet User Interface and are wondering just why your cable provider is unable to create anything with the same elegance and function, it may be time to slap Android on your TV -- yourself. There are a few ways to approach this, and all of the methods have pros and cons. The method Google has planned for us is with its native Google TV operating system -- a type of Android OS -- designed specifically for the big screen.

Their is nothing really on the Android system I care to put on a big screen TV. The Roku I use is very inexpensive and does very well putting content on my TV. If your a Apple fan you have of course Apple TV. I suspect in the end cable TV providers will of course move towards offering their TV content through their broadband service as a standalone service. Not requiring the traditional cable TV service. As more people drop cable TV and Satellite I think cable companies will have to acknowledge that streaming services are offering alternatives already. I can see a day when a person can buy a adaptor like what you describe to plug into your TV to access apps and services. Android of course is a cheap way to do this.
But TV's have already begun to offer these types of services without a adaptor.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
