Manufacturers just won’t be happy until you’re surfing the web from your TV. Really—you will like it. Samsung is the latest to develop a technology that will change your mind, and they’ve dubbed it See’N’Search.
This set-top box suggests and pulls up web content compatible with what users are watching, all without using a keyboard or other computer equipment. We all know how tedious it can be to hook up a wireless laptop and surf for YouTube videos and MySpace pages while trying to pick your favorite “American Idol.”
See’N'Search uses your channel guide and closed-caption metadata to filter out the crap and automatically suggest sites and other content automatically.
Samsung also says that the technology allows the TV or set-top to sync up with Wi-Fi phones or other portable devices. What they aren’t saying is when and where See’N'Search will be available.
