Those who follow news online know that it can be hard to sift through the cruft to get to the good stuff. Not only that, it can be frustrating to read in a million different formats while not being able to easily access content on every device you use. But what if one service picked the best articles from the best news organizations for you and formatted them in an easy-to-read manner? That's the goal of Ongo , a "personal news service" that collects top headlines from outlets like the Associated Press, Washington Post , New York Times , Slate, Boston Globe , and more. The articles will be editorially curated—that's fancy speak for "someone with presumably good taste will hand-pick them for quality"—so that subscribers will be able to read "vital and interesting stories beyond the day's top headlines" as well. Ongo isn't free, though; subscriptions begin at $6.99 per month (though there is a free day pass offered on Ongo's website).
We didn't spot this one at CES where the phone-like RMC30D and standard remotes were the only options, but it looks like Samsung has an alternative Bluetooth remote planned for its Smart TVs (but not any Google TV products judging by that Yahoo! button on the remote side) that features standard buttons on one side and a full QWERTY keyboard on the other, much like the Boxee Box's remote . Judging by the ruler in the remarkably unflattering FCC photos, this one appears to be a bit larger and it's not immediately clear what that display on the QWERTY side is for. Obviously, if there's any chance users will be logging into their various Twitter or Comcast/Time Warner accounts on the TV they'll need something better than T9 to do it, but we'll have to wait to get our hands on this one to know if it's an improvement. Check the gallery for a few more pictures, we'd expect some kind of announcement on the RMC-QTD1 before Samsung's 2011 line of TVs hit stores.
