How to connect your Smart TV to the Internet

October 26th, 2012 by LG Blog UK
According to one UK study, only half of Smart TV owners knew that “Smart” meant their TVs could be directly connected to the internet without the need of another device. 1 in 4 had never used their Smart TV to connect to the internet. Since TVs haven’t traditionally been associated with the web, the gradual learning curve makes sense. However, the process of connecting a Smart TV to the internet is simple and effortless – and for the “connected” – an amazing world of instant and often free access to favorite TV shows, hit movies, and innovative games and applications awaits. With...

Broad Brushstrokes

March 24th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
A colleague stumbled across this beautiful site from Spanish musician Labuat, and I spent a disproportionate chunk of the morning hypnotised by it. You have to give it a minute to load, (which confused me at first), but believe me it's well worth it. Just try not to waste as much time at work as I did. Try it for yourself...

February 4th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
Google is doing some very exciting stuff right now, including Google Ocean and Google Latitude. The first being extensive 3D mapping of - can you guess? - the world's oceans, to make Google Earth more representative of the planet of a whole. The BBC have a gorgeous clip, which I won't embed here as last time I tried that it was determined to auto-load, so I'm afraid you'll have to be old school and click through to find out more. Google Latitude is, according to Mashable, is a "very interesting application" for Mobile Mapping. When it comes to privacy, Google seems to have...

YouTube talks back

October 26th, 2008 by LG Blog UK
(kinda) According to TechCrunch the team at YouTube have a great sense of humour: YouTube commentors are now presented with a button asking if they’d like to hear their comments read aloud before they are posted, in the hopes of preventing instances of accidental stupidity. The feature is apparently in response to this XKCD comic - I really hope this is true, and we can highly recommend XKCD if you're unfamiliar with it - in fact if you want to make Chris your new best friend, buying him one of the Tshirts would probably be a good place to start! Hats off to the YouTube...

From the cute to the curious..

September 30th, 2008 by LG Blog UK
The wonders of the web, eh? Here's a couple of photos I wanted to share... She's a petite 20 inches (50cm) tall and weighs a mere 5kg (11 pounds) but this unicycling robot, called "Murata Seiko-chan", is getting quite a lot of attention today. Seiko-chan was developed by Japanese electronics maker Murata Manufacturing Co. as a follow up to their Seisaku-kun model from 2005. Both 'she' and the cyclist robot you can see following her are able to balance and move around on their wheel(s) due to two gyro sensors mounted in their bodies. She also blushes - you can't see it...
