Google TV: still using clunky TV remote control interface

Google’s Google TV site is now live, in preparation for Logitech’s product announcement this Wednesday.

The web content looks great on the TV.




But a big negative is the input mechanism. Google TV is still using old-style, clunky TV remote control interface. Even when Android phones are used as remote control, they copy the old-style remote.

C’mon Google!  The input mechanism can be a lot better. Use the freedom offered by touch screen devices!!
