My remote control > my voice

#1LodissPosted 5/21/2013 10:30:24 AM
I will never prefer voice-controlled TV to a remote control. Sorry Microsoft, I don't want to tell my TV to change the channel, not when I could press a button.

Think about how much effort it would take to surf 100+ channels. I'd literally lose my voice if I said something every time I pressed a button on my remote control, which I probably do 300 times a day at least. The fights this thing will cause between young kids are gonna be epic though... arguments over what to watch were once ended when the bigger kid seized the remote control... What now? Gotta knock your little brother unconscious to stop him changing the channel repeatedly?LOL

Also, that first guy said it's always connected. So those rumors are true.

Yeah lol I'd like to see how someone would control it if they had flu, tonsillitis or a bad throat.

Or if you have kids which are just being kids you cannot use the Voice either.

Damn right there.

This is a stupid choice by MS, I want to buy a games console not an entertainment center.

Sony.. I think I'm heading your way,

I like the idea. Works great as is now with K 1.0, so more advanced features is a win in my book.

He didn't say it always has to be connected to play games. BUt most of the features we've seen use the internet so of course it has to be connected to use that.

My biggest problem with voice control is that I live on a very noisy street. Busiest street in town, traffic 24/7. People talking on the sidewalk below. I live across from a fire station and two blocks from the police station so lots of sirens. How is all that background noise going to affect the controls?

Microsoft officially encourages child abuse.

Kids will troll their parents all day. Kids just want attention, and they will always settle for negative attention if that's all they can get.
