The thing to remember about Smart TVs...

... is that they're not TVs. They're a computer with a DTV tuner coming along for the ride. And if I want a new computer I'll buy a computer, not a smart TV with an underpowered processor and piss poor GUI.

I'm probably old fashioned - but I just want a TV that I can switch on and within a second its showing a TV channel. No booting up, no upgrading software, no logging on, no "smart" BS - just a TV. Thanks. Anything else I can do on my laptop or tablet.
