Why are “smart” TVs so fucking stupid? Example the first.

I have a 4K TV. It happens to be one with Amazon’s Fire TV UI. Here’s how the new UI currently appears on my screen.

Amazon Fire TV UI

Wow, lots of stuff on there! But, out of all of that, here’s the useful part, and the ONLY PART of it that I actually use.

Amazon Fire TV UI Useful Part

Yeah. And, it takes no less than 4 clicks (unless it went into sleep mode again, then add a click) on the remote just to get to the FIRST useful thing on the screen, which is one the smallest elements in a tiny section of the UI.

Fucking stupid.
