Is the TV Antenna Making a Comeback?

Recently, newspapers across the country have been featuring a deceiving ad that looks more like a news article about Clear Cast’s “Razor thin” indoor digital HDTV antenna.  Clear Cast claims their antenna will allow consumers to enjoy up to 900 shows on their TV Lift Cabinet.  This new invention is being offered to consumers for only $38.  Once consumers purchase satellite antenna they will never have to pay for television again.

Is this too good to be true? Well, yes and no.  Sure with the indoor antenna consumers may be able to get basic television, but this “new invention” isn’t really new.  The satellite antenna is no different than the “bunny ear” antennas our grandparents used on their televisions.  The only new adaptation of Clear Cast’s antenna from grandma’s antenna is that their antenna can be suction cupped to a window.

Google search results show cheaper antennas can be found at Radio Shack and Wal-Mart for under $10.  While antennas can work, the success rates vary.  Consumers who live in cities will have better success than those who live in remote places.  For consumers who wish to go old school and try antenna, it is best to stick with a cheaper antenna and test results first, then to buy with Clear Cast.  It is essential the same technology.

Samsung Introduces New Smart TV Beating Apple to the Punch

Samsung just unveiled its latest 5th generation Smart TV at a press conference in NY 24 hours before Apple was to announce their latest innovations. The new Samsung Smart TV, which will work beautifully within a TV lift cabinet, has all the latest user interface technology.  The Smart TV allows the user to operate TV using their voice, hands, or face.

How does each work?  The voice command is programmed to recognize your voice.  Simply tell TV to “open Skype app” and the TV will open Skype onto the screen. For users who wish to be remote free, they can gesture with hands to operate the TV. They can wave hand over an app and squeeze hand to click on the app desired.  This will open up app. The Smart TV can also setup individual user profiles for each family member and store profiles in the TV’s memory.  The family member can activate their profile with their face.  The family member simply stands in front of TV, lets the TV scan face, and voila!  The family member’s profile appears with favorite apps ready to go.

This smart technology will be offered in Samsung’s LED edge-lit ES8000 LCD series this month starting at $5,099 for 65” TV and priced as low as $2,999 for 46” TV.  Samsung’s perfect timing of its release of this Smart TV in front a room full of reporters, has definitely made it impossible for another company to claim “prior use” on these features.  While everyone was focused on Apple, Samsung quietly was able to sneak in and steal the show.  Samsung = 1, Apple = 0.
