Google announces Google TV


Google is at it again.  This time announcing their newest idea, webtv Google TV.

At Google I/O today, they announced that they are working with Sony and Logitech to bring Google TV into homes this fall through Best Buy.  The idea is to integrate Google Chrome and other things into the TV that will allow you to easily switch between TV and Internet.  Commercial time?  Switch over to Google and find something more interesting.

From Google’s official blog:

“Imagine turning on the TV and getting all the channels and shows you normally watch and all of the websites you browse all day — including your favorite video, music and photo sites. We’re excited to announce that we’ve done just that.

Google TV is a new experience for television that combines the TV that you already know with the freedom and power of the Internet. With Google Chrome built in, you can access all of your favorite websites and easily move between television and the web. This opens up your TV from a few hundred channels to millions of channels of entertainment across TV and the web. Your television is also no longer confined to showing just video. With the entire Internet in your living room, your TV becomes more than a TV — it can be a photo slideshow viewer, a gaming console, a music player and much more.”

I can’t say that I’m not interested in the idea of Google TV.  Now I have to wonder… Do I wait for an HD-enabled 1080P, HDMI 1.4, 240Hz, 3D Ready, Google TV TV?  Just when I thought it was nearly safe to purchase another one.  The curse of my tech obsession rears its ugly head again.
