Yeah I agree, just curious whether the smart features were seen as a positive when making a decision about what to purchase.
I didn't care about them. I replaced my sony with their SEN platform for the one with android simply because this one is better TV (better picture) and the deal was way to good not to do it at the time.

And yes, it plays all of the common formats.

I find that extremely unlikely. If you look around everywhere, providers[1] always do whatever is convenient for them, not the consumers[2].


[1] For whatever definition of "provider", from the manufacturers of tangible goods like cars, phones or TVs to software producers to social services providers to entertainment producers to news providers to governments...

[2] Screw consumers.

Hi.

These comments take me back to the time when I cracked the password of my Loewe TV as you can see here:
http://openlgtv.org.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?t=692#p4364
However as @pichlo said, manufacturers quickly forget about their products...... hbbtv no longer works in my TV and the worse part is that all the functions are controlled by a binary blob process (app.elf) that I cannot hack at all.

As someone else said, TV's are way back in processing power & innovation from mobile phones.... but this is a completely different story.

Regards.

Is the term "third world country" still relevant?

"The term Third World arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned with either NATO, or the Communist Bloc."

Whoo, that's news to me.
I have always referred the questionable places where human rights are not respected as "third world"

Mainly this means countries where you have death penalty, no gun control to speak of, no social benefits to people and generally are run by mob rule.

You do know that you just basically described America, right?
