Perhaps the days of searching for remotes are coming to a close: LG's latest TV operates using voice- and 3D motion-control. The 84-inch HDTV, shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show today, offers "ultra-resolution" and a bezel of just a millimeter, Mashable reports. It also has a plasma touch-screen for the company's Smart TV system. Plus, LG's latest television line will include Google TV, notes CNET.

Google, for its part, is actually paying TV vendors to include Android in their new television sets—an opportunity vendors are likely to jump at in a difficult market, observes Charlie Osborne at ZDNet. Of course, "if corporations like Google are going down the path of paying vendors to include their software, you have to question the platform itself." Lenovo has become the first company to announce TVs with Android 4.0. (More voice recognition stories.)
