I love Google products. I use Gmail, Google Apps and Google Reader daily and I couldn’t be happier with them. Sure, they’re not very pretty, but they are damn practical. But holy crap, the new controller for the Google TV is beyond hideous.
I don’t care what functionality it has, and I’m fairly sure you’ll be able to control it with an Android phone similarly to the Remote app on a Touch/iPad/iPhone, but this remote takes complexity to a level I thought we left in the 1980s. Doesn’t this thing look like something you’d see in WarGames?
In case you haven’t seen the new Apple TV remote, here you go.
While I obviously can’t speak to the thickness of the Google TV remote, there’s no way that thing fits in with an existing system. And what’s with the beige? Ugh.
Really glad I can just use my iPhone and/or iPad.
