    This was revealed yesterday
    Google TV's website

    Google TV reveal video
    PC World's 5 ways Google TV could fail

    The reveal doesn't say anything about pricing etc.

    Edit: Sony will make TVs with Google TV built in in the future. Logitech will make remotes with full keyboards for use with Google TV. It is based off of the Android OS (for cellphones like Droid, Nexus One, etc.).

    This will be a big thing I'm sure. Not sure if I like it or not, one thing that makes T.V so good is schedules and different shows, bein able to watch whatever you want whenever on T.V will mean it could get boring. At least you don't have to watch all the regular s**t though... And I've not heard about Hulu or anything else TV :/

    Easier to hook your PC to your TV.

    Dolphin @ 1080p on a 40" looks awesome.

    Exactly. Google is putting this out to people as if ways to access the internet on your TV don't exist. Obviously it's for money and the power that comes along with having money, but they could at least try to make it sound like a new, innovative option.

    It will still be a big hit, seeing as there are millions of people who are not tech-savvy, and just find the most popular and accessible options to different things, even if there are cheaper solutions. Google, as well as most technological companies know what they're doing, even if it sounds almost like a scam (I couldn't think of a better way to word that, so I put scam...XD).

    Google may own the television market too.

    It's easier if you have an all-in-one machine than twenty different ones attached to eachother via all sorts of cables/wireless networks.

    this is probably the thing that I'm most excited for, as i actively play my ps3, and want as much as I can get out of it (plus it would be a huge advantage for ps3 if this thing becomes a success)

    I honestly don't care for having it on my regular TV (I use a separate TV for my PS3), as when I want to watch a show I can just do i on my PC and i'm fine.

    Interesting... personally, I barely watch TV now (I prefering picking up my favourites on Blu-ray or DVD, and leave it at that).

    I assume Canada will get this service in a decade or two?

    Never heard of Android? It doesn't only run on Mobile Phones, but also on PCs...

    @Topic: Google will soon own the world...wouldn't mind if they wouldn't steal all the data...-.-'
