Google TV

    Sony, Intel and Google are teaming up to build Google TV, a web-based, or more specifically, an Android -based set-top box that could replace television broadcasting as we know it.

    Google TV will come in the form of both a set-top box and an actual TV-sets. Traditional television will be available, but in addition sites like Hulu, YouTube and other web-video sources, as well as games and apps for social networking, will be available for viewing on the family boob-tube.  Google’s Android OS will make it all happen, complete with Chrome browser built-in.

    Speculation of an Intel Atom chip will drive these devices, and Sony is vie-ing for a toe-hold in this new medium, one with a very unpredictable but promising future . We may see Google TV sooner than later. Developer tools are expected in the next two months, and Logitech has reportedly been approached to make peripherals such as speakers and a QWERTY-equipped remote. Can you say “bye-bye” PC?
