A touchscreen television?  Didn't the concept of having to go to the
television to select something go away with the remote control?

How does a remote control map to a touch interface?  The best I can
think of would be a Wii type interface were the remote moves a finger
around the screen touching things.  Very cumbersome.

Another place where they are trying to ram a "touchscreen" interface in
where it doesn't belong -- just like they are doing with on traditional
keyboard-and-mouse platforms.

Unity is horrible on a computer with a mouse and keyboard.
