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?
