> My Smart TV is severely hampered by one thing - the laborious need to scroll to a letter, then click, scroll to another then click to achieve search on iPlayer, YouTube or pretty much anything else.
> While TVs have got better, remotes have just added buttons - they need the same cut-through the crap vision that Apple achieved with the iPhone.
...and just how does the AppleTV do that exactly? What magical thing does it do that no one else does?
I'll tell you: NOTHING. It does nothing special in this regard. it's stuck in the same quagmire as every other remote based product out there. The only difference is that the remote looks prettier.
This isn't some $2000 overpriced PC. Plenty of people can afford to buy these things and play around for them just for the lulz. So spouting misinformed bullsh*t and mindless propaganda based on general lack of experience isn't going to cut it.
