Opera Offers Voice Controls for Television

Opera Software ASA (the web browser folks) has announced their new voice-enabled Electronic Program Guide, allowing people to control their DVD players, DVRs and digital TV boxes via voice. Opera plans on licensing and branding the technology to OEMs and cable operators, so it might not be very long before the Battle Royale between pop's hearing aid and the television volume begins. They're rolling out a voice-enabled version of their browser soon, as well.
