Google TV is coming to your living room.

Quote:
Google is working with Intel, Sony and other partners to develop Google TV, a service aimed at putting the Internet search giant's Web offerings in people's living rooms, the New York Times reported Wednesday.

Google TV will combine the company's Android mobile operating system and applications with television devices made for the OS, including set-top boxes, the paper says.

The TV technology will run on Intel's Atom chips, the report says, and Google will develop a new version of its Chrome browser for the TV project.

Google trying to outpace the MS Monopoly? Someone mutters: "don't be surprized if MS and Google don't team up.".

Some mention of Google also becoming another ISP? ut oooh....

I don't trust Google enough to use them as my ISP.

I wouldn't want Google to start with! I tend to use one of several other search engines even. But they are trying to poke into everything MS already has going it seems and eventually may even get into automotive softwares!

(good grief! A google navigator in your new mini van or suv? )

What the? Well what happened to them just being a friendly search enginge that they started with? Seems to me they are victims of their own success , wanting more and more, until eventually they've conquered the world.

Google turning into Microsoft maybe?

Skynet.. haha good one smarteyeball, probably they'll be working on google planes and google robots enxt.. lol

In retrospect, "yes, now you can keep the rear passengers in your mini van entertained with the new Google tv displays... watch Google on the road!" Instead of MSN channels you now have "watch the Google channel!"

"hey Joe did you see that new Google mobile phone with a live tv feed?" "introducing the new Google voice activated dish washer!" and who knows what else.

They would be totally out of their league there to start with! I couldn't see anyone staying awake watching: "now here's how to type in a search term in the new Google revised search ...."
