TVs change season to season, but it feels more like second to second. Before you know it, your 46" 1080p LCD is going to feel more like a 16" black and white with a retractable antennae. So here's where the magic of Logitech Revue comes in—you won't have to worry about buying a box that's going to be quickly outdated, because automatic over-the-air updates always keep Logitech Revue current with the latest version. Plus Google TV's crack team of developers is constantly creating more apps and features so functionality is constantly expanding,
2) When in Doubt, Accessorize
Logitech Revue makes a pretty powerful statement by itself, but take a hint from what your wife has been telling you for years: sometimes it's all about accessories. With the optional Logitech TV Cam and Logitech Vid HD you can make high-def video calling straight from your HDTV and the comfort of your own sofa. Then, with the Logitech Keyboard Controller (or its handy, palm size version the Logitech Mini Controller) you'll be able to toggle between your Uncle Joe calling from Georgia and the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions. Alternately, if you're having one of those "Honey, where the hell did you leave the remote?" moments, you can also direct the whole shebang from your smartphone with the Logitech Harmony App for Android and iPhone.
3) Find a Port in the Storm
Logitech Revue makes the complicated things in your life simple. The beauty of the system lies in a single box that you run your other devices through. Logitech Revue has got HDMI, IR Blasters, USB, Ethernet and SPDIF ports for seamless device integration. And set up takes just a few minutes—all you need is an HDTV with an HDMI port, an Internet connection (wireless or Ethernet cable), and a cable or satellite set top box with an HDMI out.
4) Search, Stream, Tweet, LOL, Repeat
We live in a world where even the 24-hour news cycle is too slow. These days if you blog about something you saw on TV an hour ago, you might as well be commenting on the Lincoln/Douglas debates. If you want to be truly part of the conversation, then it's all about instant coverage. With Logitech Revue you get seamless web and TV integration, so with a few clicks of your Logitech Keyboard Controller you can update your blog right from your sofa.
5) No, Really, There's Video Calling
Since The Jetsons premiered, the world has been waiting for reliable, high-definition video calling. And for years it has seemed as if the technology was almost there. Well, the future has arrived. It may be awhile before hover cars and sassy robot maids hit the market, but we finally have the ability to call across the world (or across the street) and literally see how the other half lives. The optional Logitech TV Cam and Logitech Vid HD provide fully-integrated calling, so you and your buddies can theoretically watch the same episode ofNova, talk about it TV-face-to-TV-face, and comment right on our site—online, at the very same time—finally rendering I.R.L. interaction obsolete.
