  2. From The Verge: LG is putting all the software in its new fridge. At CES today, it announced a connected “smart refrigerator” that includes both the webOS operating system and integration with Amazon’s Alexa assistant. This means that the fridge can do everything from automatically adjust its power settings to order groceries with your voice. The smart fridge has a 29-inch front touchscreen with something called Instaview, a “door in door” that can turn translucent to show you the contents of your fridge. LG also touts its ability to look up recipes, play music, check the weather, and shop online. Instead of sticky notes, users can leave notes and tags on the front using webOS, and a “fresh tracker” can keep track of food expiration dates. Third-party integration with Alexa also means you can use voice commands instead of the touchscreen.

In addition, the LG ProBeam's classic look allows it to blend in with any interior décor. With the innovative Sound Sync Adjustment, the LG ProBeam can be paired with any Bluetooth audio product such as an external speaker or headphones. What's more, the LG ProBeam's Wireless Mirroring feature takes advantage of Miracast® to project content from smart devices onto a large projection screen. The unique four corner keystone and vertical auto keystone features allow consumers to find the best image setting and to balance images quickly and easily. The LG ProBeam is equipped with LG's award-winning webOS Smart TV platform, giving consumers access to the ever-growing number of streaming services and other desired programs based on location and availability.* In addition, LG's Magic Remote Control allows for easy navigation of the webOS interface.

  5. Ready to start using LuneOS? Great! Here’s what you need to know: there is still a lot of work in progress and the current state should be considered as being alpha even though it’s working quite nicely for the parts that are implemented already. Therefore, use is at your own risk. Currently BlueTooth, the accelerometer, camera and ALS are not implemented yet. Audio & wifi should work, though might be buggy. If you have a TouchPad you can start here. You will want to use the “Release” version. Nightly is used for things that are being worked on and bug fixes for the next release. If you need help installing it, go here. If you’d like to try the emulator go here. And for the Nexus 4 go here. All the supported devices can be found here. https://pivotce.com/2014/09/01/official-release-of-luneos-and-project-updates/

  13. LG has announced its partnership with Paymentwall to bring the ability to make online purchases on a host of its Smart TVs, powered by its custom webOS 3.0 platform. LG and Paymentwall want to change that by giving both app developers and users an easy way to do business. App developers will be able to hook into webOS’s features to present a “Buy Now” option in their app or game. Users, on the other hand, simply need to click on that button and enter their credit card details. And since Paymentwall supports all sorts of credit and debit card and e-wallets, including MasterCard, Visa, and AliPay, you won’t need to sign in separately for purchases.
