Samsung announced that their new Smart TV equipped TV sets reached the 2 million units milestone. The Smart TV era started this year. Before that Internet enabled TVs have been called connected TVs. Smart TV, a term LG is also using, provides robust platform online services and apps on TVs.
In the US market alone, Samsung sold 730,000 units since the launch earlier this year. Internet TVs have certainly matured by now. It is convenient if you can use Netflix right away on your TV without having to get a setup box. Streaming video is for sure one of the most used features. Shane also makes a case that its great to have a webbrowser right on your TV if you have kids asking pesky questions. For the socialnetworkfans a Smart TV is also pretty neat. You can stay connected viaFacebook or Twitter while watching TV shows.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
