Television and computing have an interesting intersection in the topic of how to put computer software into the television infrastructure. It is widely recognized that the result is a home information appliance. However, despite previous commercial experimentation, such an appliance has not emerged as successful. Perhaps there is only a deficiency in properly conceptualizing the appliance. In keeping with this theme, this paper presents a theory of why people value information. Using this theory as a design aid in the creation of future home information appliances should improve their chances of commercial success.
