Samsung QWERTY keyboard remote control will hopefully ship sometime this quarter and will cost $99.99.  That is provided of course you don’t purchase Sammy’s LED D8000 and D7000 Series and Plasma D8000 Series Smart TVs, which will come bundled with the double sided remote.  An accelerometer, or a variation there of, detects which side of the remote is facing up – QWERTY or keypad – insuring that only the buttons facing the user are operable, removing the chance of a mispress.  A small LCD screen on the QWERTY side insures that you don’t have to look up at the TV set while inputting a web URL, looking for Netflix movie or using one of 200 apps available from Samsung, including HBO GO.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
