Last week I went to see the latest in televisions from Samsung. Their newest line of smart televisions allow you to be the remote control. Using gestures or voice you can change the channel, control the volume and the primary functions including launching a web browser and zooming in and out in screens.
The Smart TV also comes with a Smart Evolution kit accessory that allows you to update the hardware and software on your television (including updating the chip set to a quad core for increased processing power).
In addition to the smart technology, one thing that was really great in the design was the variety of ports especially the 4 HDMI ports that are key to a seamless interface with other accessories.
So instead of getting upset that your team has lost.. simply give your smart TV the gesture (its not the one your thinking of) and change the channel.
