My Interest Cards
Smart TVs to take center stage at CES 2013,

LG is on the verge of unveiling a new line of smart TVs at CES 2013. The company is prepared to unveil its CINEMA 3-D Smart TV line at the show. The TV series will offer easier content access and sharing along with an updated Magic Remote and simplified user interface.
Highlights of the new TV series will include an 84” Ultra HD TV and a 55” OLED TV.

One of the key features of the redesigned user interface from LG are My Interest Cards. These are folders were users can place apps and other content they enjoy to help organize their favorite things. LG has also redesigned and fine-tuned the Magic Remote. The remote has a pointer function, navigation wheel supports gestures, and supports voice-recognition. The Voice Mate software used for voice-recognition has been updated and is able to recognize the natural flow of speech.

The TVs will also support new connectivity options including WiDi and Miracast. The TVs will also support Tag On that immediately connects two devices for fast media sharing. That means users with smartphones supporting the technology will be able to hold the device against the NFC sticker on the Smart TV to transfer content.

“LG always strives to provide the most engaging, most convenient user experience to consumers all over the globe,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “We have been singularly uncompromising, both in developing and improving the LG Smart TV platform. As a result, we are confident the UX our 2013 models will shatter all expectations and demonstrate that LG has moved the medium of Smart TV forward.”

I have to say, it'll take Apple to release a TV worthy of being labeled "Smart TV". These hardware manufacturers just don't have the capability of driving a TV revolution. As much as people hate Apple here at DailyTech, I don't believe anyone else other than Apple can change TV.

/not an Apple fanboy. I use Windows 7, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 7.

You make it sound like other companies are incapable of innovating besides Apple, which simply is not true.

Smart TV's are new, the markets will decide what stays and goes, innovation will occur whether Apple existed or not.

Not saying other companies cannot innovate. They can build a better product but it might still not drag an industry along like the way Apple can.

Apple basically invented the modern smartphone. They invented a whole new market with tablets and there are talks of them replacing the laptop.

I'm looking at Apple to lead the TV revolution.

Apple did not "invent" the modern smartphone. They kicked off the smartphone revolution, but they did not invent it by far.

What Apple has going for them right now is a rabid following of followers, so if they come out with a iTV, they will sell millions regardless of quality. Just look at the iPad Mini as an example. So they might be able to help along the 4k or 8k TV adaption, but it will have nothing to do with their ability to innovate.

You could possibly argue that the Newton was the precursor to all modern smartphones. But that goes equally well for the Blackberry. Since smartphones are the convergence of several different classes of device (PDA,phone,music player).

Apple does deserve some credit for the iPhone design, a lot of other devices owe a lot of their design language to the iPhone. As for it being the first smartphone ever, that's patently untrue.

There you nerds go.

Newton was not the precursor to all modern smartphones. It's the big bang that created all the necessary ingredients for the smartphone.

The hate for Apple is strong here but stop denying that they DID invent the modern smartphone. The smartphone wouldn't even not be what it is today without the iPhone 2G.

LOLZ is all I have to say. You silly Macolytes and your belief that crApple invented all things technological. I guess your beloved iPhone somehow being released in 2007 pre-dates all other prior smartphones, especially The Simon for 1992. This site even breaks down who actually invented what. Take notice how crApple uses all things in the iPhone.

I personally couldn't care less about smartphones but I'm just sick and tired of everyone acting as if crApple invented everything. My phone can't even use the internet and has a 1.2mp camera.

Most other companies are incapable of executing as well, big difference.

Inventing a tech and implementing it well are two different things.
