sorry, i gotta reserve judgment until i operate one myself.
LG's webOS may revolutionize smartTV UX, but if it's not the UX that made me love webOS since 2009, then i really don't care.
we'll see. we know the potential is there. will it be used to do what WE want, or simply what they want? it's clear they want a tv that controls the house, like something Hollywood has been simulating in movies forever. yay, start my wash with a phone call. whoopee doo.
i'd rather have a completely gesture-controlled UI, like webOS we know, and the remote is a simple device we wear on our finger and thumb, and the tv follows it. this controls a windows-like pointer, allows pinch-zoom, drag-n-drop, and of course BACKSWIPE, SWIPE-THROUGH CARDS, and SWIPE UP TO CLOSE. the core gestures of webOS. i'd also have an app for webOS phones so they can become additional remotes. a big enough tv could have input from more than one user. you're watching tv, someone else is checking email or setting up a recording.
i'm sorry but i never liked that the TP didn't have backswipe and there's only a back button in the upper left corner.
we'll see. we have nothing to do but wait n' watch anyway. but my excitement is greater for a homebrew adaptation of Eel than anything from LG yet.
