Yahoo Connected TV
After years of wonky attempts from TV makers and software companies, Yahoo finally offers a couch-based Web-surfing experience that actually works. Yahoo's TV Widgets, software built into Internet-connected TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony and Vizio, give you specially formatted bits of information instead of regular Web pages. Just press a button on the remote to bring up YouTube videos, Twitter updates, eBay auctions, Flickr photos and news headlines on a full screen or in the corner of your show. No keyboard, no fees, no hassle.
