    This writer below also raises issue about the ads. So far all we have seen is the clean interface, maybe someone will ask the designers about the role of ads.

    When amazon put the ads on tablets people complained so amazon allows people to disable for $15 fee, do you think lg would be that smart ( the same co caught uploading people's file names even after people enabled privacy in tv settings)?

    Ads can be easily "fixed" by blocking the known addresses in the hosts file, similar like with the Ad Blocker patches on 2.x and 3.x As long as we can run homebrew there should be no issues.

    some routers allow blocking sites/ip's as well, benefiting all your devices hooked up to the router.

    Thanks Herrie and GeekPeter: annoying but I guess state of play.

    I am not sure home-brew would be available. My gut tells me more locked down and they would like a bunch of enyo and web apps to be made by third parties to connect to other devices so the tv becomes the sticky controller.

    When they allow homebrew that could be a big selling point!

    It (HB) is a huge part of the history of webOS and one of the major factors that drew me in...

    Zhoa and Vonshak said a few times in their interview with The Verge that they believe in "an open" operating system - not open source - but open, which might embrace the Homebrew community.

    More info from Time mag about additional app, see below s (glowing review by Time also, pretty amazing). Confirmed also the chrome cast like capability to fling content from mobile devices onto tvs.


    "LG says it’s working with developers to include more options. WebOS also includes a web browser that seems like it has smartphone and tablet lineage, with support for multiple open windows. An LG representative said the browser supports Flash, Java and HTML5.

    LG also showed off some clever connectivity with smartphones and tablets. Similar to Chromecast, WebOS will let users choose a Netflix or YouTube video from their phones or tablets, and then send the video to the television. LG is also working with other developers on more interesting screen-beaming applications. For instance, fitness company Neura created a big-screen version of its ACTV app, and WebOS users can launch it by pressing a button in ACTV’s smartphone app. Image sharing site Imgur is also adding a button to its app, letting users browse photos on a smartphone and view them on the television. Zhao said LG is using DIAL–the same prototocol that underpins Chromecast–along with DLNA and other protocols.

    I asked Zhao why LG decided to buy WebOS from HP, rather than just build a new platform from scratch. Partly, it’s because of WebOS’s underlying technology and app development framework, which lets developers easily port their apps from other platforms. But Zhao also said LG wanted to acquire some of the WebOS team and begin making a name for itself in software design. The WebOS team represents LG’s first presence in Silicon Valley.

    “LG recognizes that software is what now makes the next generation of consumer devices,” Zhao said."

    More apps named in LG press release. Also the press release says tvs available in the US in spring.
    So April, what do you think?


    "
    The apps, which are being demonstrated with the new LG Smart TVs here this week at the 2014 International CESŪ, include:

    zeebox (linear TV discovery and social TV),
    Yidio (over-the-top content discovery and launch),
    Imgur (viral image posting),
    TalkLittle's "reddit is fun" (a popular reddit app),
    Stevie (social media-based personal TV channel creation),
    Neura's ACTV (personal health and fitness management), and
    BuddyTV (OTT content and TV listing).

    Each mobile app will demonstrate how, by simply being on the same home network as an LG Smart TV, users will enable a unique multi-device, connected experience. In the case of "reddit is fun" mobile app, users will be able to find a viral video and with one click, watch it on an LG Smart TV. The ACTV mobile app will launch a corresponding application on the LG Smart TV and connect a user's fitness band to the TV for a real-time, social and active experience. With Yidio, users will be able to access a personalized streaming guide across multiple content sources and effortlessly launch selected content on the TV.

    "By optimizing the powerful yet simple webOS platform for Smart TV, LG has enabled a new level of interaction between TVs and mobile applications," said Anthony Rose, CTO and co-founder of zeebox. "The combination of seamless pairing, TV control beyond mere channel changing, and on-screen content identification and synchronization will result in a more connected, contextual and social experience. We're excited at the prospect of developing even more new user experiences with this new platform."
