Top 5 Reasons to Get Addicted to Logitech Revue with Google TV

Do you spend so much time in front of a screen that your loved ones tried to stage an intervention, without even trying to get it on Intervention? With Logitech Revue, the magical box that seamlessly melds TV and the Internet, you can have it all, all at once.

1) A Better Blend than Your Morning Smoothie

Ok, here's a fantasy scenario: You're hanging out on a Thursday afternoon, watching OWN as your apt to do, when an amazing recipe for Gayle's fave string beans comes on the air. You just have to share it with your loyal blog audience! But your laptop is all the way upstairs, softly playing lullabies found on YouTube to sleeping baby Bentley! What to do? With Logitech Revue you get seamless web and TV integration, so with a few clicks of your Logitech Keyboard Controller you can update right from your sofa, without having to take your eyes off of Oprah's shining face.

2) Face Your Loved Ones

Sometime the biggest pleasures in life are derived from the littlest things: witnessing your nephew's first steps, being able to look Grandma in the eye as you wish her a happy 107th birthday, watching The Social Network lose at the Oscars with your best friend in Omaha while you're drinking Carlo Rossi on your couch in the East Village. The optional Logitech TV Cam and Logitech Vid HD makes magic moments possible by bringing face-to-face calling right to your TV.

3) Toys!

Logitech Revue does a pretty amazing job as stand alone device. But the accessories! Oh, the accessories! No, none of them come in "puce" or embellished with rhinestones, but it hardly matters. In addition to the aforementioned optional Logitech TV Cam and Logitech Vid HD, you have the included Logitech Keyboard Controller, which is like an ultra-powerful remote pimped out with a full QWERTY keyboard. Alternately, there is a handy, palm-sized version—the Logitech Mini Controller—for fans of all things miniscule. And if you're having one of those "Honey, why did you let our small child use the remote as a bath toy?" moments, you can orchestrate the whole shebang from your smartphone with the Logitech Harmony App for Android and iPhone.


4) Set Up Is Way Easier than Changing Your Facebook Privacy Settings

"But wait," you say, "a device that does this many awesome things must be complicated to set up, right?" Well, we're glad you asked, tech-phobic TV lover. The resounding answer is no! Logitech Revue is a single, sleek box. If you can hook your computer up to a printer, then you can set up the Logitech Revue.


5) Six Degrees of Anyone You Want

Another distinct advantage of Logitech Revue is that despite what the video below might suggest, it will not turn you into Kevin Bacon. Phew! It can, however, help you find some of his associates (we hear the guy knows everybody). You can use Logitech Revue with Google TV to find content related to your favorite celeb by simply entering, say, "Miley Cyrus" into the search field, then let the Revue do its thing—instantly scan through TV, the Internet, etc., in pursuit of your all-consuming passion.
