Sweden has a unique feature which is SVT Text TV. It is almost like a live newspaper you can access via your television, according to Wikipedia it was started in 1979. On it you can access sports information, which is mainly what Mr. H uses it for, news stories, currency exchange information and other various current event type things. I personally can see why in 1979 it was useful but now with the internet being accessible just about anywhere you would think it would die out but it seems to be so integrated into the Swedish conscious that it is still alive and thriving. I have actually even seen Mr. H use their webpage rather then just googling information and you can get it in app form now!
If the country you lived in had something like this do you think you would use it?
