Interesting article in yesterday's Calgary Herald


Smart TVs have been given the “smart” distinction by virtue of being connected to the Internet and other devices used in the home. However, the interfaces displaying the technology behind it have been less than compelling.

LG’s webOS may be the first time a TV manufacturer has taken a big leap forward in that regard.

The legacy of webOS originates with now-defunct Palm, which had developed it as a mobile operating system for its newest phones. After HP acquired Palm and then killed off its product line, webOS was in limbo until LG bought it. Its current iteration as a smart TV interface bears no resemblance to the original vision, but does carve out a unique identity by doing a number of things well.
