Logitech Revue, a marriage of PC and Google TV

While the Sony Google TV controller feels like an old-style clunky TV remote control, the Logitech Revue’s feels like a marriage of a PC and Google TV - a clunky PC controlling the TV.

The Revue’s primary input device is a PC-like keyboard  (imagine that in your living room) or an Android app which replicates the PC feel in an App. Both options are shown below with more details here

So far, Google TV’s input options make it feel like we are living in the 1980’s. The input interface can be made a lot better with a nice Smartphone app.
