You Know What I Want to Do in 2013? Talk to My Television

Alexis Madrigal

A plea to TV makers in 2013: give me radically simply voice-control for changing channels.


Imagine doing this on your couch in front of your friends. And yes, you have to wear the sweater. Be recognized (Samsung)!

My old friend Mat Honan makes a good point about the recent NPD report about "smart televisions": they are horrible and no one likes them

( Note: This may be the only time I'm ever going to say this, but if you're a TV company exhibiting at CES and you have such an interface, please feel free to get in touch with me. I won't be on the showroom floor, but I'd like to see how your product works.)
