And thank you also for keeping it civil. In some rare occasions, people get angry and lose it, and that really murders the spirit of discussion.
I checked with a few of the guys at our testing lab, and this is what I have found out - this is the best information I have today, so "subject to change and all that", but for the moment, here's what we know:
The 2011 models don't have HID support (human interface devices, like keyboards and mice), and I'm not aware of any plans set to implement that. The remote with a keyboard is not considered an "HID", but instead a "remote control", like any other TV would have. No HID support is available for 2011 models, and it's unlikely that development is going to go into last year's models. (Remember, just the messenger here).
IP cameras need drivers, and it's highly unlikely that any IP device maker has made drivers or an App available for SmartTV's interface. I'm not sure what you mean by wanting the camera to "pull up from the TV", but if you want monitoring or broadcasting options, that's not available even in the 2012 models except in the limited capacity where Skype or other apps might take advantage of it. (It's also used for gesture and facial recognition, so those are other software options not available on 2011 models because they're new for 2012).
Pro-tip: If you're looking for that kind of advanced functionality and at an affordable (I know, that term is vague, so I'll leave it to you) price tag, consider a small computer next to the TV with a wireless keyboard and mouse. Then, you have full browser support, multi-browser support even(!), free Hulu, and the benefits of that go on and on. Additionally, IP cameras offer many options for PCs, and don't require much beyond a small, inexpensive processor. Movie junkie.. err.. enthusiasts often do this because they have videos in all sorts of formats that are supported by computers, but not by all TVs or DLNA standards. No TV or streaming box on the market plays all formats like computers do. None of them. Not yet, anyway, and probably not in the next few years in my professional opinion.
For what it's worth, to add all that functionality to a TV would be prohibitive. Nobody would buy ours over the competitors because the price would outweigh the draw for those features. It's a point of view you're free to debate, but at the end of the day, we have to appeal to everyone with features and a price that are better than our competitors.
Not to mention, the Samsung panels are some of the best on the market.
Flash IS supported with our browser, and if there's something that we can test that's not working for you - such as a website, I can see if maybe we can duplicate it and send it over.
I hope that explains a few things, and maybe puts some of it into perspective. Companies usually don't offer that sort of insight (and I hope I'm not stepping on someone's toes in management), but you asked an honest question that deserved an honest answer. We respect our customers, and I think the dialogue is good for both sides.
