CES 2008: Samsung Infolink television with USA today RSS feeds on screen

Share

Susi’s lethargy is obviously setting in as she looks at the Samsung Infolink television. Our quote of the trip so far has to be “anyway, there’s stuff,” which actually sums up this television pretty well. It’s got an ethernet connection built in which allows the telly to connect to the internet…but don’t get too excited, it doesn’t allow you to surf the web, but pulls in RSS feeds on stocks, news and weather and displays them on screen. In the US the service is provided by USA Today, and a UK partnership should be revealed very soon…

  • This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.

  • Samsung Infolink sounds like an interesting feature. What it the “Network Test” indicates everything is perfect but the 40N630 cannot connect to info services. It just sits there and finally gives up. The manual gives no clue what to do (very poorly written). An Internet search was fruitless.

    Isn’t this whole InfoLink thing just a big load of HYPE with no substance? I’d really like to know.

    It’s Reuters – which probably means you’ll be lumbered with a screen full of incredibly boring news. Hooray.
