Login interface for @netflix as seen through @rokuplayer on a big screen TV. You can replace what is to the right of @ (in the previous sentence) with other combinations and it is likely that the interface is very similar. Specifically, what I am referring to is the #QWERTY #keyboard layout, which has been that way since 1868, when the typewriter was first invented. ~ Now, why do services (e.g., streaming video) that need a keyboard interface *only* to login follow this layout? My input device is a remote that only has Left, Right, Up, Down keys. Which makes me move like a "Pawn" on this "Chessboard" unlike the keyboard of a computer where my fingers could assume the higher powers of Queen, Knight, Rook, etc. Also, I look up and at the keyboard on TV screen when moving like a Pawn with my remote controls. While I seldom look down and at the keyboard when typing on my computer's QWERTY keyboard regally. Aren't these distinct behaviors? QWERTY familiarity is NOT really a helpful factor when moving with my remote controls arrows for my streaming TV. Why then do we need this layout? ~ As previously noted, I am not typing comments or customer service emails through my remote control arrows. The only time I need it is to login. ~ Is it a matter of time that remote controls start having biometric recognitions? Or is that being deferred to everything converging on to one device which is your smart phone and that is your remote control? And, we quit ranting and better start using it already! ~ #SiliconValley #SFBayArea #NorCal #California #USA

jambajaar : I have typed on a traditional typewriter. I have a sense for why QWERTY layout - to prevent commonly used letter combinations from jamming the machine when someone types very fast. My digital gen-Z child hasn't seen a typewriter, much less typed on one. Explaining QWERTY to her is Dilbertian. Citing whose reference, it is like the dad showing the 3.5 floppy disk to the kid and the latter remarking that it is a cool 3D printout of the save icon! ~ QWERTY is not a digital restriction. But I do not see keyboards changing. My 2c is QWERTY shall remain so long as the keyboard interface exists. Question is, how does this epitaph end? ~ "R.I.P QWERTY Keyboard 1868 - ___" ~

devbala : The better apps have this figured out, with a dedicated setup URL + code to enter, eg "go to hulu.com/roku and enter ABC123 from your phone". Real question is why cant you login to the device itself and have that by proxy log you into each app? Most exhausting part of buying a new device.
