Why LG TV’s Google Assistant in 2018 is a big deal

A bunch of new LG ThinQ TVs were announced this week at Google IO 2018. This isn't the first we've heard of this connection - it's just that now, it's for realz. It's a strange thing, announcing once back at CES 2018 that LG and Google had plans to do this, then again, now, when Google and LG confirmed that, yes, they are indeed going to push that Google Assistant to the LG TVs that are otherwise branded LG OLED TV AI ThinQ.

Which phones let me control any TV in 2018?

Which phones let me control any TV in 2018?

A wide variety of smartphones have the ability to control your television - or almost any other TV you can see. Since the dawn of the mobile smart device, we've been looking for ways to turn it into things we had in the past. A flashlight, a boombox, a phone, and a remote control that'd allow channels to be changed, volume to be adjusted, and power to be turned on or off.

BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition: $16k worth of luxury television

BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition: $16k worth of luxury television

I could just as easily say the BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition is a work of art - but that's not nearly so important at the moment. What we've got here is Bang & Olufsen sound and design combined with LG Electronics OLED TV panel tech and software (with webOS and 4K processing.) The 65-inch version of this wild adventure in television hardware is a cool $16k - not something you're going to find at your everyday department store.

Toshiba’s Star Wars TV is… interesting

Toshiba made a Star Wars television that's 24-inches diagonally and designed with a Star Wars pattern. They've gone above-and-beyond when it comes to hyping this less-than-fantastic design, suggesting that "this model draws viewers into the space odyssey action, submerging them into an X-wing mission every time their eyes meet the TV." Toshiba would certainly have been better served in making the exterior aesthetic of this television set more subtle, focusing instead on the other tiny details that aren't quite so eye-searing.

A collection of pictures "leaked" over the past 24-48 hours in what was instantly called a next-gen Apple TV deluge. Whether this supposed 4K Apple TV is real is irrelevant - what is relevant is the crowd reaction. The idea of being given the opportunity to purchase something so massive from Apple seems to have some fans flipping and flopping just like a flounder - and it's been this way for a while.

With “Amazon Fire TV Edition”, 4K TVs now come with Alexa

That makes things easier for those users that don't want to take the time to plug in an extra piece of technology.
