Heavy lifting

As pointed out its better to put these functions in a disposable set top box , DVD player, or game console. These are easy to change out at much lower cost as opposed to changing out lets say a 60'' TV along with the labor of physicly removing the old one and installing the new one.

Nope

Hope this embedding of software/smart tv fad dies out. More useless crap for the majority of people and this will just add to the cost of a the tv.

when I think of such tv's off the shelf computers with loaded crapware comes to mind, finding a quality plain jane 1080p will be hard to find.

Agreed.

Plus, if you have to get a new TV at some point, all your settings and preferences will be totally gone - if you just had another box (Roku, Google TV, Apple TV), it wouldn't matter how many TVs you had to switch all your 'smart TV' stuff would still be there.

Google TV privacy

I'd love to read the privacy statement accompanying the new Google TV.

Knowing Google, it is tracking your viewing habits to sell to the highest bidder.
