A TV That Listens Up


TV maker Westinghouse Digital Electronics just polled 1,200 people about what features they?? like to see in their TV. Voice recognition topped the list: People want to be able to tell the TV to tune to Super Bowl, or to start taping a show.

Have you used any of the voice-activated remotes on the market? What do you think?
