If your contempt for green swine runs deeper then you can express on a smartphone, maybe its time you took the war to something bigger. How about a Samsung Smart TV? According to the firm’s Flickr page, Rovio’s Angry Birds are once again taking their war to your living room, and will be utilizing the the platform’s motion control features. Sounds like Sammy’s Smart Interaction setup is good for a bit more than changing channels and browsing the web from your couch. Don’t own a Smart TV? Sit tight, your Xbox and its fancy Kinect sensor will have their day on the battlefield soon enough.
Samsung has developed a new universal remote which features a new voice recognition feature, together with a handy touch pad navigation system. The new Samsung Voice Controlled Universal Remote will be arriving with Smart TVs and other devices later this year, and using the voice recognition Samsung has been able to remove a number of the buttons normal found on a remote.
The new voice recognition feature embedded in the remote uses the same one as in the Samsung “ES8000″ smart TV, which Samsung exhibited at the 2012 International CES earlier this year.
By simply speaking to the microphone within the remote, you can then change channels or volume, input characters and more. Samsung has used a combination of Bluetooth and infrared connectivity to improve reliability and performance.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or which devices will be compatible with its new remote has been released as yet by Samsung. But Samsung did suggest that TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players and other accessories will be given support for the new voice recognition remote.

Novità più che interessanti per tutti gli appassionati di contenuti televisivi 3D che utilizzano una smart TV Samsung. Il produttore coreano ha infatti annunciato, nella giornata odierna, il lancio di una nuova applicazione chiamata YouTube on TV, grazie a cui sarà possibile visualizzare i video in tre dimensioni del celebre portale sui televisori di Samsung.
Samsung è stata di parola e, come preannunciato lo scorso settembre all’IFA di Berlino, il servizio è partito entro la fine del 2011. Oltre 8.000 i filmati 3D di alta qualità disponibili.
L’applicazione, così come il servizio di YouTube, al momento funziona solamente per Stati Uniti, Canada, Regno Unito e Giappone, anche se sarà esteso ad altri paesi, in futuro. A quando l’Italia?

Samsung TV App Store ha appena raggiunto un nuovo traguardo confermando che il mondo delle applicazioni è in continua espansione su sempre più dispositivi. Samsung Smart TV ha superato i 10 milioni di download di applicazioni alla fine dello scorso mese di Settembre e si appresta a raggiungere gli 11 milioni in brevissimo tempo con circa 50.000 download al giorno ad un ritmo che è più che raddoppiato dallo scorso mese di Maggio che contava circa 5 milioni di contenuti scaricati.
While we’ve had access to Adobe’s Flash Player 11 in beta form for months, the company announced it will finally get official, along with Air 3, next month. Among the many new features included are support for accelerated 2D and 3D graphics with a claimed 1,000 times faster performance than Flash Player 10 and Air 2. That’s enough to enable “console-quality” gaming on both computers and connected TVs and on mobile devices (Android, iOS, Playbook) with a pre-release version of Flash 11 (a production release you can take on the go is expected in “the near future”). Other new options include allowing developers to package Air 3 along with their apps in a single install, HD video quality on multiple platforms including iOS, DRM for video rentals, 64-bit support and more. Check out Adobe’s pitch to developers with a press release and demo videos after the break, including a look at the hit iPad game Machinarium which was built with its tools.
We’re not sure how many of you happen to own both a Galaxy S II and a Samsung Smart TV but, if you do, you’ll probably want to download Smart View from the Android market. Like now — don’t worry, we’ll wait. This handy app lets you stream content from your set to your smartphone over WiFi, and can even be used as a controller for games from the Samsung app store. Unfortunately, you’re limited to either mirroring the content shown on the TV or watching an optional second stream from a Sammy-branded Blu-ray player but, hey, at least you won’t have to miss a single second of Game of Thrones just because that box of Cheez-Its keeps whispering your name. Like any good TV-connected app, Smart View can also act as a remote with a program guide and the ability to change channels, and even more functionality is promised for the future. Eventually, it will make its way to Galaxy Player, Galaxy S, and Galaxy Tab owners but, while you wait, check out the gallery and PR below.
