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.”

So the innovation for Samsung is to be able to walk your smartphone up to the TV, touch it to the NFC badge, and then be able to transfer content? Does anyone else see how brain-dead this idea is? "Yes, I as a consumer want my smartphone, made by the same manufacturer, to be able to transfer data once I get off the couch and walk across the room to make something happen between the devices." I believe remote controls were invented to negate the whole getting up to monkey with the TV scenario. This is right up there with their superbowl ad claiming that the next great thing was the return of the stylus. Idiots.
