A little lesson to be learned from the first version of Google TV: keep it simple. Or at least, keep the remote controls simple.
Buisness Insider spotted this little tale of woe yesterday…
“I tried Google TV yesterday. Flying a Cessna is easier and has fewer controls than the Sony remote,” tweets Jon Steinberg, President of BuzzFeed.
Google asked Sony to make a custom TV set for their new TV software. The specs are dizzying and the functionality is impressive. Problem is, the remote looks like the control panel of the Starship Entereprise.
