Google Set to Invade Your Living Room, Google TV in the Works

Google, in its next move to take over the world, is set to announce an Android-based television software in less than a month. Google is planning on releasing more information at their Google I/O conference in San Fransisco on May 19th & 20th. Its software will be designed to open up traditionally "closed" boxes such as TVs and cable boxes to a much broader range of internet content. With big names such as Sony, Logitech, and Intel interested in this technology, it makes you wonder how much longer the traditional computer will hold its appeal. It will only be a matter of time before you can just plug a wireless keyboard and mouse into your TV, fire up Google Docs to work on a spreadsheet, then open Google Chrome to buy some movie tickets. Obviously the PC will still be the only way for enthusiasts and professionals, but for the casual user, the PC's days may be numbered. What sort of applications do you think Google will implement? Let us know in our forums.

Makes me wonder if this will be on the PS3.

We need to keep in mind that there are Many options, in fact 16 coming out in the next 12 months for internet tv. While Google TV might be pretty cool, there are still concerns about the cost of content on their system. Why would people pay for content when its already free and licensed. WhiteHatt is another one http://www.whitehatt.com - Apple TV is not worth the money, its just itunes on demand. Netgear has something coming soon, threes a lot.
